iTunes Review

Like its punk-pop heroes, Green Day delivers the goods with such seeming ease that it feels as if they aren’t even trying. But a sweet, catchy tune like “Nice Guys Finish Last” doesn’t appear on anyone else’s album and after two decades of punk rock, Green Day manages to find a way to keep itself energized with the creative fires burning. All successful bands are threatened by an overexposure that’s out of their control. The best a band can do is diversify and try new approaches. Which Green Day does within its own punk parameters. “Hitchin’ a Ride” adds a trudge. “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” goes acoustic with strings and became a huge hit. “King for a Day” adds horns and a quick-stepping beat. “Last Ride In” serves as a south-of-the-border surf instrumental. “Redundant” is about as close as punks like to come to a ballad. These mild diversions widen the trio’s scope, but the heart of the band can still be heard in the straightforward propulsion of “The Grouch” and “Scattered.” Green Day’s appeal is so simple, it makes one question how can it be so?

new sound

This album is where green day's sound started to change from the pre dookie era to the evolved sound u get in American Idiot. i think this is green day's best album, because u get the sounds u would expect from older green day, and ur getting some of their newer music in there too. if ur just starting out on green day, this is a good album to start with. it'll show u the sounds of both eras of music by green day.

Brilliant beyond words can describe!

Out of all the post-Nirvana alternative bands to break into the pop mainstream, Green Day were second only to Pearl Jam in terms of influence. At their core, Green Day were simply punk revivalists who recharged the energy of speedy, catchy three-chord punk-pop songs. Though their music wasn't particularly innovative, they brought the sound of late-'70s punk to a new, younger generation with Dookie, their 1994 major-label debut. Dookie sold over ten million copies, paving the way for a string of multi-platinum...
