Green day merely tried a different style. And hey, some people liked it. Sure the old fans were a bit "meh" about it but instead of doing more of the same, whats wrong with a fresh new style?
People spend too much time comparing "old to new" but realistically if you were just a huge fan you wouldn't need to compare but love them for what they are and what they stand for.
Also pop culture in schools is kinda meh since we learn enough just by living.
