I think Green Day has already earned the right a long time ago to do whatever they want when it comes to the direction of their sound, how they want to approach the song-writing process, and if they want to experiment/incorporate any genre/music influences into each album release. Afterall, it is their album and we are the listeners/fans who purchase it. I have always found it amusing if not down right ridiculous each time you have the older fans of Green Day feuding or criticizing the newer/modern fans of Green Day. I think if you were really a fan of the band, you wouldn’t pretend to know better than the band themselves or alienate/shun the younger fans.
