With three new albums on the immediate horizon, Green Day are about to add a ton of new songs to their vast catalog. It's an extremely ambitious undertaking that few bands in history have ever attempted. It's also a good time to look back at their long history.

So what's your favorite Green Day song? Feel free to be bold here. Hits like "Longview" and "Welcome to Paradise" are great, but "King for a Day" and "The Judge's Daughter" are quite great, too. Vote for whatever you want, just please only vote for a single song and only vote once.

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
