    Oh lord. I've been alive long enough to see one of the bands I grew up with come out with two greatest hits CDs.

    What's the point of greatest hits albums in the streaming era?
     
  4. Vinyl and bundle sales I guess.

    This has 10 of the previous one too, and isn't even in a fun order ... seems kinda weak.

    Work Hard. Be Nice.

    Yeah, this seems weird considering half of these songs are on International Superhits. Love the title/imagery/package items for this though. Really cool concept.

    Are they close to being out of a contract? That was my first thought?

    Wait...so they’re counting Ordinary World feat. Miranda Lambert as a “new” track?

    They should have just released an International Superhits Vol. 2 and some sort of re-release with the first collection as well.

    right on!

    Solid. I rarely find myself wanting to listen through a Green Day studio album, but I dig most of their singles, so this seems fun.

    But if you stream you can already do that!

    I'll write you into all of my songs Supporter

    I wonder how good Billie Joe's backspin slice is. If he was able to add a little sideways backspin into it I'm sure his serve would be moderately tough to hit.

    I wish they would have gone with 2001ish-present since the first one ended at Warning. There would be more than enough to fill up a disc and maybe have a couple extra new or rare tracks.

    I wish I could say something but silence is fine.

    Yeah, I was hoping for a greatest hits from 2004 to this day. And I doubt the new songs will be as cool as Maria or J.A.R..
    Eh, I guess I'll do it myself in a playlist.

    A studio version of Cigarettes and Valentines is really missing here.

    The order just seems chronological which may not be exciting but i like when greatest hits albums are done that way.

    This is a much lamer Greatest Hits than International Superhits.

    No JAR, which is prob my fave Green Day song ever. Not enough Insomniac or Nimrod track either. Lame.

    Also, the Uno! Dos! Tre! trilogy was such a huge fucking disaster that it only produced one song to make this greatest hits cut. Amazing.

    Definitely wish they would have only included songs that came out after International Superhits (there's more than enough) but I love the album art and the title is funny. Really looking forward to the new song

    If someone told me that if i released a greatest hits album i'd make $30 i'd do it

    I mean...those saying they wish fewer/none songs from International Superhits were included - you are most definitely NOT the demographic for this album. Green Day’s most popular time arguably came after the 1st GH album, so of course it makes sense they’d want an updated compilation that also included the bigger older hits.
