Punk changes, just like rock changes. They are pop punk, and have never claimed any different. Define punk, minor threat, sex pistols, ramones...

So true. A few months ago I was in Waldbaums supermarket and heard "Basket Case" on the overheard music. I laughed and when my girlfriend asked what's up I told her that what was considered punk in the 90s is now shopping music. How times change.

See above. I'm not saying Green Day is a bad band, I'm saying that pop-punk is hardly punk
