If you are a Green Day fan this is a great game, otherwise steer clear. I have been a GD fan since Dookie, so playing through all these songs was a blast. Glad I rented instead of buying, now that I am finished with the game its doubtful I would want to play it again. I think its the same for me with all the music games.
The albums Dookie, American Idiot, and 21st Century Breakdown are on here with a few songs from their other records sprinkled in. Not as artfully done as the Beatles game there are no special visualizations of the songs and minimal outfits. Its like a snapshot of three concerts given during the tours for the three complete albums.
Again if your a fan, it gives you a new appreciation for their songs making you fell like part of the band. The sound quality is fantastic and if you have a good sound system your going to be really happy with the experience. I am giving it a 10 because the songs are great and in my opinion that is all that matters for a music game.

This game was so much fun! For me, I just turned 30 and it was a walk down memory lane. They have been a favorite of mine from back in their old days- before Dookie. So that was a slight disappointment for me- was so far it appears you can only get songs from Dookie and above. The only other disappointment is they spent so much time getting them to look like the band members but kinda sucked at the mouth movements when they sing- kinda creepy puppet looking-lol. Otherwise I spent hours playing- I just couldn't stop! I love it and couldn't be happier with it! My only regret was buying it and not just renting here and getting the import code to load it onto my hard drive and not wasting 60 bucks! But it was well worth it!

So I just finished this and boy did I have some fun.. the song list is amazing. I was a big GD fan about 8 years ago but forgot about them and moved on. This game reminded me of how great they were in the 90's. Surprisingly I had the most fun singing in this game. The Dookie songs were awesome and every one of them was fun! I spent 4 days finishing the game and cleaning up all the trophies, and that was a 4 days well spent, although 99.99999% of people will not platinum this. You must be one the best RB drummers in the world to get the kick drum trophy in Brain Stew which will probably take awhile.. then there is the Greatest Hits trophy. You must literally be a god at drumming or you won't even come close. Other than that, great graphics as always with RB games, fun gameplay, and great songs. YOU MUST RENT!!
