Stay the Night as the first single would have been a way better choice
I still haven't listened to that trilogy.
Warning is perfect.
"Going To Pasalacqua" is a top ten song of theirs.
Oh Love is one of my favorite songs from the trilogy, and that's probably one of my weirdest opinions
Besides Blood Sex and Booze, Fashion Victim, Misery and a couple other bad songs, sure! Haha.
Misery is definitely one of their best
The other two are good
Warning is definitely in my top three Green Day albums.
I love how varied all of our opinions are haha. Makes for better discussion IMO!
I love Warning. The day that album came out remains one of my favorite days from my teen years. Got free tickets to see a live concert filmed for this MTV special:
I caught that concert on MTV2; taped it and watched it so many times
Misery is miserable. It's also a rip off of Bye Bye Bye by Jellyfish.
Blood Sex and Booze, Fashion Victim, and Misery are some of the best songs on Warning.
Warning is their best album, bar none. Dookie comes in second.
Impossible to pick a definite favorite for me, but I will say Kerplunk is the album I revisit the most. Not a bad album in the discography besides Dos if I'm being honest.
YIKES. Dookie rules though.
Church On Sunday, Waiting, and Castaway are the best songs.
Imagine Kerplunk's songs with Dookie's production? You get a taste with Welcome To Paradise and the Dookie version is a million times better, so it leads me to believe it *could* be my favorite album if done like that.
Church on Sunday may be my favorite but Fashion Victim is def better than the other two imo
Yuck, that's one of the worst songs Green Day has ever done IMO. The lyrics are horrible and the melody is stupid. Then those weird "whoas".. who's even singing that?
Church On Sunday is a great one. Not as great as Misery of course
Warning is my favorite album of theirs as well
Now that I know which one Fashion Victim is that one's really good too
Totally with you.
Dookie and Kerplunk are the two most similar Green Day albums imo, production quality being the only difference between the two.
I will say that I think a little of the charm on songs like Christie Road and No One Knows might be lost with Dookie level production, but songs like 2000 Light Years Away and One of My Lies would be incredible.
Can we talk about how great the "new" songs off International Superhits were? J.A.R., Maria, and Poprocks And Coke could all probably make it in a top 20 Green Day songs list. Does anybody know where all those songs were from? I know J.A.R. was from a movie or something. Maria was also a cool glimpse into the American Idiot direction.
Maria is a Warning B-side
I could be wrong but I think Poprocks and Coke was recorded specifically for the greatest hits
I think my favorite two Green Day albums are Nimrod and Warning.
J.A.R. was almost 10 years old when that comp came out. And you're right! It is from the Angus Soundtrack. Unsure if it was recorded during Dookie or Insomniac sessions though. Maria is a Warning b-side, and I'm pretty sure Poprocks was the one song they recorded just for that record.
