Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Now that Green Day is on Broadway with “American Idiot - The Musical”, the obvious diss has been dropped ad nauseam: That this most un-punk of moves officially disqualifies the band from any disestablishmentarian punk-rock coolness they might still claim.

I’ll take it a step further: Green Day as fodder for a Broadway musical puts them in the same league as ABBA. Especially considering the premature talk of a movie adaptation for “Idiot”. From here on out, I don’t think I can listen to any Green Day song without it bringing to mind the Swedish supergroup, too. (And I actually like a certain degree of ABBA, too.)

Can’t get any less punk than that. Mamma Mia, you fake-cockney accenting bitches.
