Ugh I need Green Day back so badly. It's been a long 3 years since I've seen them.
I tried to get through Dos today for some reason and just couldn't.
When did you tap out?
After Baby Eyes, and I only made it that far so I could listen to Ashley.
Nice. My favorite is Wow That's Loud I think. I'm someone who enjoys Nightlife just because of how dumb it is and fun to sing along to.
Don't think I even remember what Wow That's Loud sounds like haha. Nightlife is corny but it's far from the worst song from those sessions, at least they tried something weird and different. Ashley may be my favorite song from the entire trilogy though.
Took a crack at making a playlist of the trilogy to make one solid solid album, and it's tougher than I expected. I'll toy with it throughout the rest of the week.
I did that when the albums originally came out and even that playlist is a bit of a chore to get through for me now. I need some new, actually good Green Day.
I am so fucking ready for new Green Day, but I remain an unapologetic fan of the entire trilogy.
I love the trilogy too but I'm a Green Day stan lol
This is my playlist though, the album is called 99 Revolutions
1. See You Tonight
2. 99 Revolutions
3. Stay the Night
4. Nuclear Family
5. Stray Heart
6. Kill the DJ
7. Let Yourself Go
8. Lazy Bones
10. Rusty James
11. Wow! That's Loud
12. Oh Love
13. Missing You
14. Dirty Rotten Bastards
15. Brutal Love
Flows together really well imo and has most of my favorites, though I had to leave a few out
I love the song Warning - do they have more shit like that?
Most of that album.
You'd probably like quite a bit of Nimrod
oh we suuuuuuuure do. You must be pretty young.
I mean I absolutely love all of their stuff, they don't have a single bad album imo
I've just heard the singles from Dookie so much that it kind of takes away from the album for me at this point
Yeah.... I am too. To a degree. A few songs I don't care for (for me, "The Forgotten" is a snoozer), but ultimately I think it gets a bad rap.
Lol c'est la vie, etc my man!
I'm a huge GD fan but I really couldn't get into the trilogy records at all. Thought they were really poor efforts tbh. What were your favorite tracks off of them?
Yea, there's like 5 good songs out of the whole lot, and even those songs aren't that great if you put them up against the best songs off any of their prior albums.
Stay the Night, Oh Love, Ashley, Brutal Love, Missing You, and Dirty Rotten Bastards are the only songs off the top of my head that I enjoy a lot from the trilogy.
Really like "Angel Blue," "Stop When the Red Lights," "Stray Heart," "Dirty Rotten Bastards," "Rusty James"... definitely more in there, but that's my top five.
Call me an apologist if you must , however I like Uno as a whole and think Dos/Tre could be cherry-picked enough for a nice companion piece. I guess what I initially meant was that the poor reception to the trilogy isn't a view I'm 100% in line with. The concept was poorly conceived and the band/label fumbled the entire release, but besides stuffing too much material into too little space, I actually think cutting 10-12 tracks would be all that's needed to create a solid helping.
I think there's a couple of solid tracks ("Brutal Love," "Oh Love," and "Stay the Night" among my favorites) but it feels like more quantity than quality. I feel like if Green Day had cut it to like 14 tracks and then really worked on those songs, rather than attempt to push 37 tracks, it would be way more cohesive and it would match some of their best work.
Or I could just be talking out of my ass and this was the best we could get. Whatever, this new album is gonna be killer, I can feel it.
I really like Amanda for some reason
Oh Love is one of their worst songs in my opinion. Haha.
To this day, the fact that they released that song as the first single is fucking insanity. Seriously, they really mishandled the entire release of the trilogy. I know Billie Joe's rehab didn't help things, but they made some foolish choices prior to that. The first one being "let's release THREE albums in 6 months!"
