Greatest Hits: God's Favorite Band Tracklist:
Praise the LORD that I Tunes gives the option just to purchase the new material. It’s true that JESUS died for them (members of Green Day) as it is true HE died for you! You should know it’s not intelligent to seek wisdom from a group Of pot heads (isn’t that what their name implies). They have stayed true to their sound even in maturity which is somewhat immature. Hey guys I will hang with you Friday, if you hang with me Sunday! LOL?
Should of added just a couple more ''Hits''.Walking Contratiction,Geek Stink Breath and Nice Guys Finish Last should of been included.Also the Country-flavored Song with Miranda Lambert is lame;that should of been left off the Greatest Hits List.
To be honest, I disagree with some of the track listing, not to mention no tracks from 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, I would have added Christie Road (Kerplunk!), 409 In Your Coffee Maker (1,039), and Android (Kerplunk!). Buy International Superhits instead.
why a greatest hits? are you or did you break up? Typically bands release a greatest hits sometime years later after they broke up. AND; Gods favorite band? especially when we all know it was the Beatles and unfortuatley for GD, you are not that close to claiming this title. the Beatles changed music as we know it. GD just added to it. Now, dont get me wrong... GD is a great band and one of my favorite bands, Im sure many angels on both sides of the fence like your band... but tread lightly with your accusations of being Gods favorite band. . Look to history for examples such as John Lennon declaring that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus Christ. You are now in that same gray area. Hopefully, you wont get the kind of blowback that John received. its just too bad that whoever thought it was a good idea to add this catch phrase to some of your best work did not think this through.
Decent selection of songs; however, there are a lot I would have also liked to see be included. Not a fan of the the version of ordinary world with miranda lambert... her vocals are just kinda eh in my opinion.
Honestly if you are really a fan of Green Day, you wouldn't buy this album. Most of the time, the so-called "Greatest Hits" are not the greatest. This album is not for people who enjoy listening to the band itself. This album is for people who like the Green Day songs they happen to be exposed to. If you want to like Green Day and what they stand for, don't buy this, you miss so much. Buy their actual albums.
Wow! They actually took a break from doing stupid Broadway shows to figure out a way to get the suckers to buy more product. Who buys this corporate imitation of Punk? They're about as Punk as the Archies. Just the worst.
Green Day : A band that rose to popularity big time with their album Dookie in the early ‘90s started to slump towards the late ‘90’. So they release a Greatest hits with a couple of pretty goods new songs. They then do a super political and driven CD called American Idiot-that allows them to do it all over again... The difference this time, is follow up albums are really poppy crap with a couple of good songs- They then release 3 full albums of this crap - Again with just a couple of very forgettable songs .... Now in order to try again they release “some” of their actually Great songs (missing many others) and added some of the forgettable crab. No a political driven video for a not so good song! - Guys “hire someone or write songs with some punk friends” This direction just isn’t working.
Yes, all of these songs are previously released, BUT, they finally got smart and released Boulevard of Broken Dreams as a buyable single (without you needing to buy the entire album to get it). I cannot tell you how long I've waited for them to do this. For that, this album gets 4 stars. Plus, I mean, it's Green Day, so you can't really rate them anything lower than that.
The songs on this are great, but they already had a greatest hits album of all of their hits up through warning. Maybe a greatest hits from American Idiot to the present would be a better idea.
