This dude obviously doesn't know the meaning of punk rocker, because Green Day is the face of Punk Rock! This guy needs to check his facts. GREEN DAY ROX! They have been through more s**t that that guy knows, so give um credit for what they've done, they have become the Kings of Rock, and they've earned it!

Hahaha, Green Day not pink, you crack me up!!! Who ever this Diggle guy is, he is a total a**hole!!! I mean come on!!! Quote from Billie Joe: "A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over the garbage can and says 'That's Punk?', and I say 'No that's trendy!' So there, they are punk...f*** you Diggle!!!

Well, the guy seems really jealous i guess because his band became no where close to green day's success. Or he's just been drugged up out of his mind living in a cave for the last 12 years or so.

well then f**k to them too, punk has lost its meaning now, with so many bands and ppl that consider them selves "punk" it use to be about being different, a lifestyle, now its just a f**king fashion trend, but Green Day, to be honest, has been, is, and always will be punk, it is not only just clothing, but a lifestyle, and even in their adult age, they do not fail to impress me, they deserve to be reconized and appreciated, and for those who fail to see this, well then f**k you too, go back to your backstreet boy and brittney spears s**t and leave us be...thank you very much *bows*

Being probably the most "geriatric" Green Day fan on the planet (33) this guy has got to be outright lying. I know of 50 year old country music fans that have heard of Green Day. How does he know that they aren't punk if he hasn't heard of them? I hated punk (including the Buzzc**ks, they have one good song) until Green Day's Dookie came out. I was more of a Soundgarden/Alice & Chains type. Green Day is about the only punk band I like and I have liked them since 1994. This guy is just trying to get his few minutes of fame. Half of those punks who say they won't go mainstream or sign to a major label because they are selling out are just too scared of the backlash they would get from the punk community. Though they would secretly like to have the balls Green Day had to go mainstream. I saw he can kiss off. Green Day is the best band on the planet and will be around longer and have a more lasting effect on music then The Buzzc**ks ever will. I am raising a new generation of Green Day fans (daughter, 13 & son, 10)so may Green Day be around for years to come.

I have never even herd of that guy and if he is so ignorant not to know Green Day thats pretty pathetic. And how the f**k could he say they aren't punk when he never herd of them? Green Day shouldn't worry about people like that. They know they have way more fans who love them.

Steve Diggle needs to get a hold of himself. True, he was part of a very influential Punk Rock group (no-one can deny that), but punk has changed over the years that they have been dormant from music-making.I agree with 'offthedeepend' (And praise him for helping with the new generation of fans - I'm 13 and have been a life-long fan) that Diggle must be lying in hope of 'dampening Green Day's success'.The generation of Buzzc**ks fans is quickly disappearing. Ask any teenager who The Buzzc**ks are and they may have a vague idea. Ask that same kid about Green Day and you're guaranteed a better, more enthusiastic responce.The Buzzc**ks are well and truely past it, and this display of disregard and blatant rudeness to a fan isn't helping their profile right now in the eyes of Green Day fans.

Oh that's horrible about the guy not knowing Green Day. It's kind of ironic and funny though. I bet Green Day enjoyed him not knowing who they were. However, about the comment of them not being punk...as said by many teenage girls world-round: Pisha! Who cares if he thinks they aren't "punk". What is he? Nothing. HE hasn't made music in several years. He's dead to me. Green Day are still keepin it alive and punk rock even to this day. Go GREEN DAY!!

You know what, f**k you, prettypistol, you're a tool. DIggle said he didn't know Green Day, obviously, he has either been living in a cave, or the only things he hears are his two last living brain cells bouncing off each other inside his own thick skull. If he doesn't know Green Day, then where the f**k does he get off saying they aren't punk? They were around back before punk was a fashion for god's sake. If it's the major label that makes him say that, then he's a bigger t**t than he's already proven to be. Just because a band is successful doesn't mean they've sold out. It means they're f**king good and managed to break through. Why should they be punished by the "punk" community for growing? If that's what punk is, then f**k punk, I don't know why anyone would want to be a part of tying a band down like that. Green Day are f**king champions, the kings of the new punk rock revolution.

My idea of what each member of Green Day would say to the article:I bet Green Day laughed and liked it when he didn't know who they were considering everyone tracks them down and knows everything about them these days. Mike probably said, "oh well..." Tre definetly said, "Ah f**k it! Who is he anyways?!?!" and Billie Joe most likely said, "It's actually nice to know someone who doesn't worship the ground you walk on....it's kinda like going back to highschool."Then when they found out that he said they weren't punk Mike said," yeah he's right...we are not punk....our music is." Tre probably said, "f**k him. He's balding." Billie Joe said, "Hmm....Like I take what he says seriously when he hasn't made music in decades....he's dead to me."

i don't no who this diggle guy is how great of an artist he is. if green day liked him he must be good, but i dont think he had good judgement at all, the way he ridiculed gd w/o even knowing them. maybe he is a good musician, i'm not judging him by that, but if people come up 2 u saying ur their hero, u don't tell them that they aren't punk and humiliate them. hopefully their "hero" was just having a bad moment or something, but he needs ta get his head out his ass and think bout how rude he acted. i'm not just saying this cuz its gd he insulted, but thats not a way 2 treat any of ur fans. thats all i gotta say and i hope those who read this understand wut i have 2 say.

billie's biggest fan's picture

billie's biggest fan

I have alot to say. Who is he to say what's punk or not? They are sooo punk! I know the whole band members biography and my uncle was one of the maine people that made Billie's house. And i know that they are being unfairly victimized. Heck, I haven't ever heard of that band! No doubt they aren't from this planet none the less the same ballpark so they need to get there thick skulls out of the clouds and realize what REAL music is. If they are so punk rock then why haven't they heard of Greenday? Greenday won a grammy for the best ROCK album. Shows what posers they are! They don't know who won the best rock album! Is it just me or is that stupid?! I mean how can they call themselves musicians? I have grown up with Greenday. Get this: instead of my mom playing me Motzart as a baby, to make me smart or whatever, she played me Greenday! Guess what, straight A's! And if you think that I have a strong opinion, you should here some of the other fans! I'm a devoted girl and when Greenday is embarassed it hurts me. I can't stand it. I strongly dislike whomever dislikes Greenday. So do me a favor and stop filling me with such agrivation. It's an excruciating feeling to know that someone I know so much about and that I know is punk is being humiliated because of just a few simple words. That's just so rude! I deticate the song Platypus to those idiotic people. Oh and since no doubt they don't know what song it is you can get the lyrics from Billie because his lawyer wouldn't let him put his PUNK ROCK lyrics on the CD because of his potty-mouth.

WHAT!?!!?! How could he not know Green Day?? Steve Diggle needs to keep up with his music, I would consider Green Day if not equal to, above the legacy of the sex pistols or the clash...not punk bah! I feel sorry for them...hey, at least they probably make a point not to totally be oblivious to other bands in the punk world that consider Green Day their hero right? :P

ah well he can f**k right off and stop acting like he's the most important thing since the beatles because he's f**king not. if he doesn't understand that punk is being true to your own way of living and your own ideals well then he can 'shove it up his arse until it comes out of his big toe', i quote Liam Gallagher.there are no f**king rules, and he's not the f**king punk god are something. ahaha who is he to judge.

he must have heard of greenday...because who hasn't??but it's perfectly reasonable that he says they weren't punk. I think they're pretty "good" (or respectable) on the scale of who's "truly punk" and whos' a "poser" but the truth is...they're music isn't really any more punk than it is simply rock or pop. The clothes they wear don't seem very "punk" to me. They seem more along the lines of hot topic. yes, hot topic isn't really punk. it's owned by gap. it's fake. sorry, but true. "poser" clothes. (that word is dubious though, because we're really all posing) they may have been punks at the beginning (I live near where they started out, and I don't think they could have started there being "posers") but they're become mass marketed. The simple fact that you fans are insulting this guy for "not watching TV and paying attention to the media" shows what audience they've got now--the mainstream audience.and to whoever said they've been round since the beginning of uhh..."punx"...that is so wrong that it makes me wonder what our world has gotten into. Punk took off in the late 70s, when green day were babies if anything. and the roots of punk began in the 60s garage rock. so no, they are NOT original punk.

When I read this I was really mad. Ihis guy obviously doesn't know what he's talking about. How could he never of heard of Green Day. Tons of popular bands say their influences are Green Day. He also needs to get glasses to watch T.V. because a lot of other bands copy Green Day's style. Green Day is a phenomenon. Ilove them.
