Green Day

I think, for anyone who knows me, this will be an obvious choice for ‘G’. I’ve been a fan of Green Day since I first heard Basket Case back in 1995 when I was 15. I’ve pretty much grown up with them and been ‘with’ them while they’ve dabbled with different genres and styles – but they always make great albums. They’re certainly not ‘punk’ any more, but they’ve grown older and their style has changed. But see them live and you’ll see they still have all the energy – particularly when they surprise you with a very old song mixed in with the more recent stuff. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen them and they are, by quite a long way, my all time favourite band. As such, this Music Monday will be slightly different. Instead of simply listing my 5 favourite tracks (that’s too hard!) I’m going to list my favourite song from each of Green Day’s major album releases.

  1. 1,000 Hours (from ‘1,000 Hours EP’)
  2. Paper Lanterns (from ‘Slappy EP’)
  3. Road To Acceptance (from ’39/Smooth’)
  4. One Of My Lies (from ‘Kerplunk!’)
  5. In The End (from ‘Dookie’)
  6. 86 (from ‘Insomniac’)
  7. Prosthetic Head (from ‘Nimrod’)
  8. Church On Sunday (from ‘Warning’)
  9. Homecoming (from ‘American Idiot’)
  10. Murder City (from ’21st Century Breakdown’)
