OK so while dj’ing today on 93rock, (93.5,93.1 or 93rockon.com) I had a classic Green Day hit, “Brain Stew”. It got me thinking, what the hell happened to these guys?! I had a good conversation with one of my fellow DJ’s today about the transition of Green Day and like me is disappointed with their latest single. The albums of “Dookie”, “Nimrod”, “Insomniac” and even “Warning” were absolute gold. Now we’re getting songs like “21 Guns”, and “Oh love“?
Now for those of you that know me I am sure you are going to say, “Ryan not everything can be heavy all the time” and other typical responses I get. I am fine with a power ballad or a band doing a softer song, but I fail to see what is great about their latest single especially.
So I ask the question…did these guys sell out? And if so when did it happen?
