    Jesus of Suburbia is arguably my favourite song, in general.

    Immense album.

    Blur would have put up a decent fight in the final but I think Greenday had it in the bag for a while.

    I was gonna pick: Coffee and TV, Country House & Ong Ong

    Green Day's discography is ridiculous.

    Well done @Minty

    Spoiled for choice. My second favourite band ever. Going to Pasalacqua, Stuck With Me, 80, 86, Sassafras Roots, Welcome to Paradise, and literally the entire Nimrod album, to mention some that haven't been highlighted.

    Saw them '98 at The Barrowlands and it changed my life.

    Hard lines @Heb Celt , a big band for me around '98 too.

    Thanks as always @Taz :50:

    Yeah there were so many options. I felt I had a chance of winning so that's why I stuck to the better known songs.

    I really wanted to submit so many other songs, especially from Bullet In a Bible because I was at that gig. Was incredible.

    First time I saw Green Day in 1992 there were less than 50 people in the room, including the bar staff, the guys in the support bands and their gf's etc. Last time I saw them was close to 100,000 in 2004. Pretty incredible to think.
