Rated 2 / 5 stars

not too bad

a little boring but a good effort


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


Just good enough not to blam...
Maybe you could come up with some more creative scenes to replace the siezure-inducing ones?
Aside from that, looks like you're learning well, and had a good time doing this one.

Are you new at Flash? This is quite decent.

The graphincs you made around the music video were well made and the sound was clear.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

not bad.....

the idea was good.....but the graphic just sucked....


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


Great song, but the graphics were a little cheesy.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Liked it

I thought the graphics were good and well timed to the song, but the lyrics at the bottom couldnt be seen very well. Maybe a darker color on that font or a black outline


Rated 3 / 5 stars


music video. This is a great song. Just get rid of the flashing lights and put some actual graphics in that section.

It Was Alright

I didn't really like the song. Most of the scenes were pretty plain and had nothing to do with each other, and then there was the 20 seconds of flashing red white and blue. Wasn't bad, but wasn't to exciting eather. Interested animation though. Good job.

I liked the song, but not your animation, stick to stickmen.

Needs alot of work

Sorry man, nothing personal but u need to work on this alot, very weak.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars


the animation is pretty nice and fluid, but could use some more work
and for the sound..... next time try to get it higher quality, without the bass overkill


Rated 0 / 5 stars

i hate it

it was so pathetic i gave it a 9 for the humor


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

its okay

It seemed more like a slide show. But I think you will go far in your animation, so good luck to you on that. I'm also not a big fan of Green Day.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


I think its great now that people are taking songs and making there own videos for them....its not like you can change the lyrics but its a nice way to tell people how and what the song means to you


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I liked it only downside was the flashing lights...i like the fact that you put everything into a literal point of view like with the alien nation....good job ...maybe next time you could do one to stairway to good job tho


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very good music video

Not to mention a good movie to come onto NG with. Nice song, and nice graphics to fit along with the song, but that flashing colors part was just retarded. Why did you keep that? Anyways, I look forward to more works from you.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

I love that song

That is one of my favorite songs. The video was nice, kind of literal though. Didn't like the flashing color part though. I also think on the propaganda line, a better choice would have been something about Fox News, thats the biggest current source of propaganda I can think of. Other than that, nice job.

Good job for an afternoons work

Your animation is pretty smooth.
You have to work on the sound file editing because that was really muffled.
You could have edited the song down for more of an impact because after the chorus repeated a few times and the flashing (filler material) lights came on (which I have used) it all kind of drowned and lost its initial impact.

Michael Moore looked cool all filtered up and drawn over.

But for an afternoon... thats quite an achievement.


Rated 2 / 5 stars


it was okay for an afternoon deal, but you got the point of the song wrong so i dont know... as much as green day sucks they have good points behind their music, and you didnt get the point right so the music sucked, the graphics were kinda shitty, and the video didnt match the song, so its a pretty weak score.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

greenday rocks!

so kickass


Rated 5 / 5 stars


You get a five. I'll explain each point.

1- I like the modified newgrounds logo.
2- Good song. I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed that we're idiots.
3- Good video. Nothing wrong with it, and everything right. I like the style of the TVs.
4- One afternoon? Hot damn!
5- Seizure warning. Very considerate.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

not bad...

i have seen better music videos, but i've also seen far worse.
im glad that you had subtitles in the movie, because for sound quality was a bit low - the song was a little muffled.
the animations to go with the movie were ok, but overall i found that the song was a little repeditive (as songs can be), and as a result a lot of the animations were repeated, so i got a little bored watching.
also, i think that you should have put in some form of seizure warning, hahaha... lots of flashing backgrounds.
well, overall i didnt think that it was too bad, but it could have been better.
overall score: 6/10


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

s'not bad.

Need to change a few things.

Like the sounds like you recorded it on a mic at home.

And the text at the bottom you need to make it to where I CAN READ IT!

Other then that it's a good rendition of the Green Day song.


Rated 3 / 5 stars

Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

not really original.

I wish I could rate you higher and give you a better review but the thing is that you basically just illustrated what the song says and you illustrated it sentence by sentence. Unoriginal and boring.

More over if you are going to make a music video at least use the original version and not the edited version. I mean what's the use of doing a flash work if you can't use the word FUCK? huh?
