THE NETWORK / Money Money 2020 
Are they Green Day or are they not?
The mysterious 6-piece New Wave project called The Network released Money Money 2020 on Billie Joe Armstrong's label Adeline Records in 2003. Supposedly from somewhere in Europe, The Network came to America, signed to Adeline and proceeded to badmouth Green Day. Heavy on the flat sounding, yet bubbly synths, driving straight forward drum playing, down stroking guitar and bass playing, plus monotone vocals all make for a fun listen.
It's fun but not necessarily great. If you're a fan of Green Day and hunger for more this would be where to look...except it's not Green Day. Right?
