What is the most underrated song by Green Day?

What is your guys' opinions on what Green Day's most underrated song is? I have several of them, one of them being Misery. It was really different than anything else they've done at the time, and it was a stylistic change that sounded great in my opinion. Another underrated song is Whatsername-- it just puts together so many great elements: the tempo, the progression, and Billie Joe's vocal style to create one of the best tracks on American Idiot, in my opinion. What does everyone else think?

Good question! I really love both of those you mentioned. I think Warning as a whole is pretty underrated honestly, a lot of really great songs. Castaway is one of my favorite's off the album that I dont really hear people talk about.

I went through a list and picked a few I love, but don't really hear people dont about as much:
Stuart and the Ave., Haushinka, Ha Ha Your Dead

Haushinka is easily in my top songs from any album. It's a shame Green Day has hardly played it live and according to GDA, Ha Ha Your Dead has never been played live. I think all of these should have more people listening to them. Probably some stuff on their first album as well.

Great answer, I love Warning as an album too. They definitely should play some of their older songs, especially some from Shenanigans, like you mentioned. I also find Shenanigans to be a pretty underrated compilation album, with some hidden gems like Desensitized and Suffocate.
