Green Day 30 Green Days ~ 30 Day Green Day Challenge

misanthrope86 posted on Aug 12, 2011 at 09:38AM
This thing has been floating around Tumblr for a while so I thought it would be cool to do it here too! You can answer the challenge however you want (day by day, all at once, a few at a time, only picking the questions you like etc). Credit for the questions goes to whoever came up with them, but as you may know, that kind of thing can be very hard to track on Tumblr. Anywho, here are the questions:


Day 1 ~ 'Bullet In A Bible' or 'Awesome As Fuck'?
Day 2 ~ Favorite song on '1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours'?
Day 3 ~ Favorite song on 'Kerplunk'?
Day 4 ~ Favorite song on 'Dookie'?
Day 5 ~ Favorite song on 'Insomniac'?
Day 6 ~ Favorite song on 'Nimrod'?
Day 7 ~ Favorite song on 'Warning'?
Day 8 ~ Favorite song on 'Shenanigans'?
Day 9 ~ Favorite song on 'American Idiot'?
Day 10 ~ Favorite song on '21st Century Breakdown'?
Day 11 ~ Foxboro Hot Tubs or The Network?
Day 12 ~ Favorite Billie quote?
Day 13 ~ Favorite Mike quote?
Day 14 ~ Favorite Tre quote?
Day 15 ~ Favorite Green Day lyric?
Day 16 ~ Most inspirational Green Day song to you?
Day 17 ~ How did you get into Green Day?
Day 18 ~ Favorite song Green Day have covered?
Day 19 ~ Song that should have been a single?
Day 20 ~ Favorite music video?
Day 21 ~ Favorite live Green Day song?
Day 22 ~ Green Day song that makes you sad?
Day 23 ~ Favorite Green Day picture?
Day 24 ~ First album you heard?
Day 25 ~ Song that always makes you feel better?
Day 26 ~ Bike, Trillie, Trike or Trillike? (I'm assuming this is a shipping question. Feel free to skip...)
Day 27 ~ Whatsername and Jesus of Suburbia or Christian and Gloria?
Day 29 ~ Favorite piece of Green Day merch that you own or wish you owned?
Day 30 ~ Billie, Mike or Tre?

The Network. I like both, but The Network are wacky.

Day 12 ~ Favorite Billie quote?

Given my intense need to absorb anything he says, this is impossible for me, so I'll leave you with this simple gem:
"I never thought being obnoxious would get me where I am today."

Day 13 ~ Favorite Mike quote?

How are we supposed to pick these things?! I'll go with:
"I draw most of my religious beliefs from Star Wars."
over a year ago misanthrope86 said…
Day 14 ~ Favorite Tre quote?

Tre is a one-liner machine so I refuse to pick just one. Here is a selection:

"Everyone is entitled to our opinion."

"It's not how you pick your nose, it's where you put that booger that counts."

"I have a homosexual crush on most adolescents."

"No man can eat fifty eggs."

"I want to wash your grandmother."

And one that isn't so much a quote as it is a fact:
"I'm the greatest rock and roll drummer on the planet and you suck."

Day 15 ~ Favorite Green Day lyric?

IMPOSSIBLE! Right now I'll go with "Sugar fix, dirty tricks and a trick question, guess I should have read between the lines... from All The Time or "My mind is set on overdrive, the clock is laughing in my face, a crooked spine, my sense dulled, passed the point of delerium, on my own, here we go..." from Brain Stew. Or the entirety of Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life).

Day 17 ~ How did you get into Green Day?

I saw the music video for When I Come Around on tv. Proceeded to scour record shops for any Green Day I could get my hands on.

My Generation

Day 19 ~ Song that should have been a single?

I don't really care about single releases. I would have loved a proper music video for songs like Give Me Novacaine and East Jesus Nowhere and anything from 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk.

Any live performance of When I Come Around and King For A Day.

Obviously Wake Me Up When September Ends, but also Restless Heart Syndrome.

Day 26 ~ Bike, Trillie, Trike or Trillike?

I don't do that shipping stuff. I like their dynamic as a band and that is enough for me.

Day 29 ~ Favorite piece of Green Day merch that you own or wish you owned?

Back in the days before American Idiot, Green Day merch was extremely rare here in NZ. So when I went to Australia for the first time, I almost had a heart attack when I found a Dookie-era singlet in a market in Melbourne. Its a men's singlet, so it fits weird, but it is my favourite bit of merch that I own for sure. My second favourite is my 21st Century Breakdown tour tshirt I got at their concert 2nd concert here in NZ. They've only played here twice (well, there apparently was a show in 1994 but I have never found any evidence of it and I was 8 then so wouldn't have been able to go anyway) and for the first one (American Idiot tour) I was so over-excited about it that I totally zoned out and didn't get a tshirt. So the tour shirt I got at the 21st Century Breakdown tour is pretty special to me too. Yeah, yeah, I know, nerd tour-shirt buyer, but because NZ is so far away from... the rest of the world (LOL), it means a hell of a lot to fans when bands come down here for us. Those 2 shows were the 2 greatest nights of my life and even though it seems silly, having that merch is an awesome reminder of those nights.

LOL. Melodramatic much?

Day 30 ~ Billie, Mike or Tre?

They are all equally important to the band, but I guess Billie has the frontman blessing/curse and much of my admiration falls at his feet.
