    I don't listen to either of them to be an intellectual. I'd pick Blink, because they're more fun.

    Not for my money. Their early music blows both Green Day and Blink out of the water. Not even a contest.

    Blink 182 were awesome, at least through Take off your Pants and Jacket.

    Green Day sucked, then they made the American Idiot album and they somehow managed to suck even harder.

    I enjoy both, if I have to choose I'll say Green Day.

    Blink 182 sucks ass. As a punk music lover I feel disgusted by them.
    Green day 3 first albums where ok and they get the pass from most punk lovers, but 182 is just awful.
    Travis parker is legit tho, the transplants are one of my favorite bands and he really shines with them.

    Cheshire Cat was angsty enough at the right time that it will always be a special album for me.

    However...this is my favorite song by far from either of the two.

    I still like Blink (to an extent) while I can only listen to bits of Green day here and there and nothing from them.

    Kerplunk is a great album but Dookie was their best IMO (talking about GD)

    Have a few decent songs here and there.

    JAR is a great song and remember it was on that movie Angus

    Green Day uses more chords, Blink 182 use more single note riffs

    Green Day destroys Blink live its not even close

    Also, folks saying Take Off Your Pants, lets be serious Enema is 10x the album TOYPAJ is

    Blink for me. I couldn't stand Green Day. There's something the lead singer of GD does with his voice that really annoys me.

    As I've gotten older though, my will to listen to Blink has dwindled. I do it only for nostalgic purposes every few years. I like Boxcar Racer, Angels and Airwaves, and +44 as well.
