My Favorite Green Day Album


This post will come under much debate, and I’m sure I will be completely in left field in this respect. The most listened to album in my Green Day catalogue is ‘American Idiot,’ an album that I hold in the highest regards. I believe that it helped to shape the music industry as it stands today.

Despite this passion for this album, it is not my favorite. ‘Dookie,’ the most known of all album in the arsenal is also not my favorite. Crafted from the fact that I became a die hard Green Day fan sometime before ‘American Idiot,’ my favorite album is ‘Warning.’

Although this album is considered by many 90′s Green Day fans to be different and weird, I think it shows everything that this super star band has to offer. Every single song on the album rocks, and if you get past the fact that it is heavy on production, the songs are really well written, sang and played by Billie, Tre and Mike. This is also the first album in which the band utilized a four or even in some cases five piece ensemble onstage.

Among my favorite tracks from my favorite Green Day album are “Blood, Sex and Booze,” “Fashion Victim,” and of course “Minority.” These, mixed with a plethora of other great tracks makes this my favorite Green Day album. I encourage another street fight in the comments section and hope that someone has the balls to say that the masterpiece that is ‘American Idiot,’ was there favorite album.

    Haha, btw there is no reason or scientific evidence behind that at all, just my personal opinion. So if someone fights me on it, I probably won’t bother to fight back.
