Pretty much the only thing that Dropkick Murpheys have in common with Green Day is the color green.
overtime GD has gotten softer and softer and more and more pop while DPK has stayed essentially the same from day 1. GD wants to be famous and rich and win Grammys but DPK just want to be drunk and mad and irish. GD wants to be an international hit, while DPK is pretty much just grounded and local. I think its a good example of 2 bands that could have been pretty similar taking radically different paths. I can't tell American Idiot apart from any other above-average pop-punk group's CD. could have been covering for Blink 182 or something, I wouldn't notice.
