Green Day has always tried to push boundaries and do things a little differently -- and their latest promotional push is far from traditional. The pop-punk trio has partnered with the "Angry Birds Friends" series, making customized Green Day animated pigs and giving fans the chance to unlock a new song called "Troublemaker" by playing the game. This seems a big gimmicky to me, but I do love Angry Birds. What do you think? Is this collaboration gimmicky or great?

MTV.COM reports:
Green Day is teaming up with "Angry Birds" to premiere "Troublemaker," a track off their upcoming album.

    Love Green Day, they are smart guys. I really don't know anything about angry birds, except that it is everywhere.

    Probably gimmicky too, but pretty original, I'd have thought. Why not?

    Doesn't it seem a little bit late to teem up with Angry Birds. If there is anything to teem up with now it's Temple Run.

    I think its great; its something different and new. I know, I prefer the old green day too. But this is who they are, you can either take it or leave it. If u leave that doesn't make u a fake fan, but change is always good :) x

    The sad truth is that music is just another career now. They think about climbing the ladder like everyone else. And they have to promote themselves to as large an audience as possible to do that.

    Green Day's last good album was Dookie. Everything since has been gimmicky.

    I like Green Day.
    I'm okay with Angry Birds.
    Therefore, the mashing of Green Day and Angry Birds is great for me!

    Because, of course, there's NOTHING commercial or gimmicky about Honda giving away a Civic with a body airbrushed to suggest the artwork on the cover of "Living Things." That's not a criticism - I love Linkin Park. I'm just saying that it's called the recording INDUSTRY for a reason and that bands promote their music in all kinds of different ways.

    Green Day sold old long ago----nothing like greedy, spoiled brats pretending to be hard and relevant.
    They used politics to fool everyone awhile back as well----the real Punk movement of the 70s would be disgusted with them.
    Real Punks taking a political stand to fool and gain fans? That would never happen back in the day.
    They are Punks for sure but not in the good way
