Leading the Punk Revival charge, Green Day could make a claim as one of the more influential bands in the 90’s. As catchy and successful as their early efforts was it didn’t exactly break new ground; but it reminded many people of ground that was broke fifteen years previous. Over time, Green Day opened the doors for Neo Punk bands, all the while still remaining relevant and leading the charge for the bands they helped to inspire. Should they have the same profile they have now in their year of eligibility, Green Day could be a first ballot entry.
