So what if they are? They're still out their making a difference. They are gaining publicity in a way that helps the enviroment.

Coolio tbh complaining about them for helping the enviornment isn't exactly helping anything. It really, seriously bugs me when people complain about others doing charity work. When you donate tons of money and use your fame to help the world, then maybe you'll have the right to complain. Mr. Green

Yeah, at least they ARE doing something. But I don't see how it seems like they're being fake..

I mean, they've been all about this kind of stuff for awhile. I mean.. going against authority. And that is apart of it.
omfg they ACTUALLY think that the world is important and we're not treating it right.

A lot of people think so. And they're publicising it more.

In some form, I think Billie Joe has always been into the prophecies of John Lennon, therefor has probably likely always been into activism.
Mike appears very into money AND vehicles. With his recent appearances at BMW fashion shows it seems him speaking out about the environment is almost a contradiction -- that's not to say he doesn't actually care. He may very well care.
And Tre Cool, well in my opinion he seems to just spend so much time making a jackass out of himself to really sit down and be serious about the environment and have it take a bearing on people. In fact, they'll likely only talk about how weird it was that he seemed so genuine in sincere for a couple of moments.

Even if they don't care, they're still doing a lot to help. And really, they're into activism, politics...so why not?

They told you this?
What if the whole thing is an act?
What if American Idiot was just the record label's idea?
Granted, yes they are doing things.

O_o well yeah they've said things like that in multiple interviews. If American Idiot was all the record lable's idea then the people who wrote the song and theme would be filing some serious law suits seeing as how Green Day was given credit for writing all the songs.

Well, they kind of are being "rebels" in the sense that they are speaking up against authority.

Just like they've been doing.

As Kurtni said, if they are doing a good thing I don't care why they are doing it. But honestly, I believe only Billie Joe is really into this activism thing.

I have to kinda agree with that, I mean I remember a time when Mike said in an interview - pre American Idiot, that politics was 'boring' (which earned him a dirty look from Beej)

But a lot has changed since then, they may be more politically and environmentally charged these days, but yeah, I do think that Billie Joe is into the activism thing, it was proved I think, when him and his family went to New Orleans.

If Green Day wanted publicity they would be running around naked in
antartica, smokeing dead cicadas, eating sand and raping penguins.

Good publicity is better than bad publicity. Environmentalism is more of a global thing than some drunken rockstar doing something rebellious and stupid. I mean, hardly a new phenomenom.

People who think that Green Day are only doing this for a publicity stunt, frankly, make me want to vomit.

For fuck sakes guys, so what if they are?

Why the fuck does everyone care if they're being honest or not? Since when did you get to decide what goes on in their heads?

And it's not like this "stunt" is killing thousands of kids, is it?

Just shut up and be thankful that they're actually doing something to make a difference. They've got busy lifestyles and yet they still make time to do something which is a lot more then what a lot of you people could do, I'm sure.

As a band, you've got to admit that they're not very energy efficient ... travelling the world in planes, putting on massive shows, it all adds up. Maybe they just want to try and break even by getting the word out and being activists, while they're not touring the world. I don't think it's for publicity, i think they're putting their own publicity to good use. I don't think i'd ever heard of the NRDC until Green Day teamed up with them.

No, I agree with Hannah. She's completely right. Who are we to say that they're faking it?

That's just ridiculous. They're making a difference aren't they? They are trying, right? Devoting time?

At least they're doing something. Talk shit about those who aren't doing anything before you rant on someone who is trying to make a damn difference.

You tell em,Hannah.
Be reasonable guys...Why would ANYBODY waste their time doing something like this for publicity? There's better ways to sell out than getting down and dirty. sell outs are lazy. what's lazy about being an enviroment activist? billie joe wouldn't be doin this unless he really wanted to. and I don't care what you say,person who went on the publicity stunt rant, you were totally bashing green day. if you weren't, then you would have gone to a diffferent forum to state your opinion rather than sign up on a GREEN DAY FAN forum just to say that. think about it. you knew you'd get a bunch of GD fans on your case for it, and that's why you did it
