top 10 Green Day songs of the decade

I know it's kind of late for this, January is almost over, but it's better late than never.

In the past decade Green Day made 3 albums, "Warning" in 2000, "American Idiot" in 2004 and "21st Century Breakdown" in 2009. In this blog I will give you their top 10 best songs from these 3 albums. These rankings are based on my opinion, please don't get angry if you don't agree with the songs I picked. I've liked Green Day for a long time and I think I have pretty good taste in choosing their best songs. Hopefully there won't be any complaints but I know there will be. There's always that "St. Jimmy" number 1 fan who will complain that that's their best song but I'll tell you right now you won't see it on my list, that's one of their worst songs ever.

Cheechoo Top 10 Countdown! Here we go!

10 : "Waiting". This is one of the best songs from "Warning" and very deserving of being in the top 10. The first time I listened to "Warning" this was one of the songs that really stood out from the other ones. I could listen to it all day and for some reason it's a really cool song to listen to during the summer. It's a great song, one of my all time favorites. Here it is, number 10, "Waiting".

9 : "Before the Lobotomy". I had to listen to "21st Century Breakdown" a couple of times before I really liked the whole thing, but this was one of the songs I really liked the first time I listened to it. It seems like I end up liking this song more and more every time I listen to it. It's very well written. 3:30 into the song until the end is my favorite part. I could listen to this part over and over, it's one of my favorite endings to a Green Day song. Here's number 9, "Before the Lobotomy".

8. : "21st Century Breakdown". This one is my personal favorite from "21st Century Breakdown". Although there is difference between my favorite song on this album and the best song on this album which will come later in the countdown, so don't be confused. I think this song has amazing lyrics. If I could only pick one song from this album to listen to for the rest of my life I would pick this one. Here's number 8 folks, "21st Century Breakdown".

7 : "Jesus of Suburbia". I'm not a big fan of "American Idiot", however there are some really good songs on it, this being one of them. I like how the song has 5 different parts. I really think it should end after "I Don't Care", it would be a much better song if it did but overall it's still a really good song. So yes I could live without parts 4 and 5 of this song, however I do think that parts 1-3 are better than the songs ranked 10, 9, and 8. It's a long one but here it is, "Jesus of Suburbia" at number 7.

6 : "Boulevard of Broken Dreams". Even though this song is extremely overrated it's still amazing. I think this would be my favorite song from "American Idiot" if it wasn't overplayed to death. Nonetheless this song is very good. It's easily one of the best songs on "American Idiot". "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" here at number 6.

5 : "East Jesus Nowhere". I would say by far the best song on "21st Century Breakdown". This song blew my mind the first time I heard it. I was like "holy shit!". I love everything about this song, the lyrics, the music, you name it! This is one of those songs you can't truly appreciate unless you listen to it on headphones with the volume all the way up! I used to do that at work all the time and get everyone who worked around me mad haha! Anyway, this song is amazing. It's number 5 and it's "East Jesus Nowhere"!

4 : "Misery". I couldn't believe my ears when I first heard this song! I had never heard a Green Day song like it! Absolutely amazing song! It has one of the best choruses in any Green Day song. It's a song you never want to end. It's a song you can very easily find yourself listening to on repeat for hours! I don't think I know anyone that doesn't like this song. Some say it is the best Green Day song ever but I'd have to disagree on that. It is definitely one of their best ever, and in my book their 4th best song in the past decade. Number 4, "Misery".

3 : "Holiday". This song was, is, and always will be my favorite song on "American Idiot". It is by far the best song on that album. I don't think this song could ever get old, it's so good! The first time I listened to "American Idiot" and heard this song I thought to myself "holy shit! this song is AMAZING!". When I was done listening to the whole album I went back and kept listening to it over and over again. Sadly this song is very underrated and is overshadowed by the more popular songs on the album like "American Idiot", "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams". I'll give "American Idiot" and "Wake Me Up When September Ends" credit, they are good songs. Just good songs though, "Holiday" is a great song. It is far superior to the rest of the songs on the album but will never get the credit it deserves. This is "Holiday" at number 3.

2 : "Warning". This song is easily one the best Green Day songs ever and is second to only one song on the album "Warning". This song is extremely catchy and overall amazing. This is my favorite song on the album. One word can describe this song and that is AMAZING. Here it is at number 2, "Warning".

1 : "Minority". This is the best song on the album "Warning" and the best song of the decade! I would rank it in the top 10 best Green Day songs of all time as well. It's the best song of the decade! No song from "American Idiot" or "21st Century Breakdown" can even touch this song! I still remember when I saw the music video for the very first time. I could have died happy right then and there knowing I had heard one of the greatest songs of all time, not just a Green Day song. This concludes my top 10 countdown. Here it is, the number one Green Day song of the decade, "Minority".

I hope you enjoyed reading this. It took me over 2 hours to make. Please let me know what you think of it.
