Why is Green Day not popular anymore?

One reason they are not that big anymore is because of the record companies. Rock is dead in their mind and the next Ketty Perry will do for them and not 3 46–47 year old punks. The public's musical taste comes and goes in cycles. It's actually quite rare for a band to have as much success as Green Day has had.
