    U2 and Greenday.

    Wow. Two bands I could really care less about.

    U2 is WAY too political in both word and song. Greenday, when they first started, were AWESOME and they are one of the FEW punk bands I'd listen too. Now, they're apparently following U2's political footsteps.

    A Punk Band being political?!?! Oh my God that is so not punk rock! I bet The Clash, Anti-Flag, The Minutemen, Minor Threat, NoFx, The Damned, Crass...and like every punk band thats worth its salt would denounce these trabadours of so called 'punk'

    Indeed. I have little time for nonpolitical bands.

    So is this from their performance at the Superdome Monday or something else from beforehand? I missed the pregame show.

    Gotta chime in here - I like it when musicians actually write/perform music about something other than sex, money, and partying. I mean, there's a place for that, no doubt - much of the Beatles' legendary catalog is about those things. But artists taking a stand for what they believe in is excellent. It's what the USA First Amendment is for.

    BTW, speaking of this topic, check out this movie:

    Also: found the video for it if anybody's interested:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAfFK0qfgAM
    I rather enjoyed this, myself. But then, I love both bands.

    Yeah the US VS John Lennon! I listened to the interview with the author of the book on NPR last week, I think it might have been with Terry Gross, can't remember. But yeah, can't wait to see the documentary

    I wanna ramble about how important politically aware and active musicians are, but it's against board rules :(

    More of the same bland and boring stuff Greenday and U2 have been putting out, individually, for at least 10 years now.

    The song wasn't written by either band, it was written by the Skids. If you get a chance to hear the original recording, it's a little more raw.
