    1 thought on “Green Day: American Idiots & The New Punk Explosion

    1. I've never been much of a Green Day fan (classic rock all the way!) but this book was still an intriguing story of how music changed in the Nineties and affected pop culture.

    2. Green Day: American Idiots and the New Punk Explosion, Ben Myers, The Disinformation Company Ltd, 2006This is an unauthorized, but very favorable, biography of Green Day, one of the world’s biggest punk music bands.The trio that became Green Day grew up in small towns near San Francisco. Each coming from difficult family circumstances, they fell in love with punk music (the Dead Kennedys, the Sex Pistols, the Buzzcocks, among many others). They formed a band, and soon became mainstays at a pla [...]

    3. What a butt-licking book this is. Poorly written and riddled with typos, this book was extremely hard to get through. Ben Myers seems hell-bent on convincing the hipsters that Green Day always was and remains punk rock, but the hipsters will never listen. He also seems to have a school-girl infatuation with Green Day. I like them, too, but at least step back and be a little more unbiased in your writing. Meanwhile, Billie's name is misspelled all over in pull quotes, and the captions to the pict [...]

    4. If you are into the modern era of punk rock, this Green Day bio is for you! It tells of their early days playing forgotten songs like 1,000 Hours and At the Library in California, to their 2004 punk rock opera sensation; American Idiot. Whether you're a fan of Billie Joe, Mike, or Tre', you'll like this book.

    5. It's this simple, too much Green Day, too little "New Punk Explosion." And I like Green Day, but Myers can't keep himself from any sort of objectivity as he gushes about the band. That said, I appreciated the background story of the band and their working class ethos, though looking into how that connects more into the sociological structures of punk would have been more interesting.
