Both utter piles of wank IMO, overrated to the extreme. I couldn't see a band like that in a massive arena with a novelty stage show and call it good punk rock.

i don't see why the two are always compared.

Green Day helped shape the East Bay scene and still help out bands from the area. Billie Joe and Mike Dirnt also play in smaller bands, such as Pinhead Gunpowder (B-J) and The Frustrators (Mike). all the money made from their Lookout! releases is kept by the label, so you could say that Green Day have paid their dues.

Blink don't really do that, but then they're a different kettle of fish. Dude Ranch is a pretty good album tho.

Green Day. No contest. One are the influences, the other are the influenced.

Interestingly enough, Blink 182 have been at it for 13 years now....any current bands you think will still be around in 13 years time? I'd put a wager on it!

well i like both. but probably prefer blink 182 even though they have some shitty songs, but i seem to enjoy listening to them more, but not the shitty songs. green day are what the crankys would call fandabedozy though.

Green Day

Listen to

'1069/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours' which is probably their best release and 'Dookie' and you will see why.

Indeed there is, wank wank wank :rolleyes:

They are really rubbish. If I want to see a half decent stage performance with crap props i'll go and see the Flaming Lips, thank you very much.

Blink 182 all the way - The first band i got into properly and i listened to Enema for a year and half non-stop. They've progressed and i love every one of their albums.

Saw them live this year finally and it was awesome - one of the best times of my life :)

Although i'd say greenday have had more commercial success!
