Wow, I'm so glad you could be here to correct that greivous error. Who knows what would have happened otherwise.


I think that's a pretty cool story, though one must wonder would the boy have come out of the coma without the music? Or was the music the catalyst?

Green day? Bah, who needs them, I'd take music that could put a person in coma anyday... :rolleyes:

But that's good for the kid. :p

Music causes brain stimulation, regardless of what kind it is. Small doses of music could have stimulated activity in his brain allowing for him to wake up.


Either way, Green Day's marketting department better grab this and run with it, or they'd be fools.

To everyone who came in here to just rip on the music / comment about the music, and anyone who was PLANNING on doing it.

Don't.

That is childish and stupid. The story has NOTHING to do with the particular band, nor the kids choice in music. It's a ten year old kid who was in a COMA because he got hit by a car on his BIRTHDAY, and his favorite music brought him out of the coma. I honestly don't CARE what music you listen to, and I'm pretty sure nobody here cares if you like or dislike Greenday.

What would you guys have said if it was a girl and the music was Ashlee Simpson? :mad:






Probably laugh harder :D
But yah, very cool for the kid.

Hey, I like Green Day. I don't have to have some "knowing" person to come and tell me what kind of music I should and shouldn't listen to in order to have "good taste" or be cool. And I hate when somethings labelled "pop" and put on the crap shelf.


Good story though, feel sorry for the kid, but he got lucky waking up like that.

Green day aren't pop. They may have been when they started, but unlike all the Blink 182s and Offsprings they have actually become a pretty good band.

Go listen to a Busted or McFly cd and then tell me Green Day are pop.

Go on, I dare you!!! :D :p

Well they are pop, but that doesn't mean they suck. Automatically being "pop" doesn't make anything suck. What does make something suck is it's... suckiness.

Even though this shouldn't be happening, I'm going to clarify. Pop is the word used to describe the popular music of the time. Back during the big band era swing and jazz were "pop" music. Greenday is a very mainstream popular band. Ergo, pop.

People seem to be confusing the term "Pop music" (read popular music) with the genre "Bubblegumpop" which is what (early) Britney Spears(now she's sluttycrap ;)), Jessica Simpson, and Mandy Moore, etc. are.

Actually i dont classify Green Day as pop, just as "bad" :D i enjoyed them live at Reading but ive recovered from that now.

But good for the kid, happy story :D
