Green Day is one of the most outstanding bands to have ever risen in the music scene. They are the one of a few bands who have stayed true to their roots since their inception early in the 90’s filled with Grunge and the leftovers from 80’s hair bands. They have stayed true to their style and haven’t let market influence and the rapid changing of the music industry effect their outlook.

International Superhits is a greatest hits album that features 19 of the bands major-label songs from their four album releases, and two new songs (“Maria,” and “Poprocks & Coke”).

The CD is laid in in chronological order starting with the bands breakthrough disc Dookie moving into the easily forgettable Insomniac then branching to the catchy Nimrod and finally settling down on the band’s latest, and greatest effort, Warning.

Looking over the track listing you still see at least six, if not more, songs that you can still hear on the radio today. It just goes to further intensify that Green Day has the staying power to be around long after the they are gone (but let’s hope that never happens).

Not to be outdone, Green Day also included two new tracks on this “greatest hits” album. The disc’s new single, “Maria” is a catch tune that shows that the band hasn’t lost their touch. The second new track “Poprocks & Coke,” while isn’t as catchy as “Maria,” is certainly well deserving on this CD.

Green Day is one of the greatest bands to hit the mainstay in a long time, and we can only hope that they will continue to produce the same high caliber music we got on their last four CDs. Sure any hardcore fan is going to have all of the CD’s that these songs came from, but same yourself some space in your CD player and pick up International Superhits, and have all of those great songs right at your fingertips.

On Tuesday, October 3rd, 2000, Green Day released their highly anticipated follow-up to Nimrod and this Green Day offering is awe-inspiring. They have managed to make an album that doesn’t have a bad song on it. Hey, it’s Green Day, would you expect any less? They retain their classic style with songs like “Minority”;. Unlike other bands that try to adjust or moderate their image to atone to the majority (::Cough:: ::Cough:: Offspring ::Cough::) [Editor’s Note: Shut Up Tom],  which isn’t a bad thing, but it can disgust the true fans. Warning is one of the best Green Day albums.

Green Day is the greatest band on earth! For those that have been under a frickin’ rock for the last ten years, Green Day is a punk rock band out of Rodeo, CA. The band consists of Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass, vocals), and Tre Cool (drums). Think Blink182, only much better and less trendy. They’ve been known to have some recurrent suggestive themes in their music, including, but not limited to: life-changing events, rebellion, love, heartbreak, and being “all by myself”; (wink, wink). What some of you might not know is their original name was Sweet Children.

Let’s look at the tracks, shall we? The five best songs on the album in descending order are as follows: (11) “Minority”, (6) “Misery”, (3) “Church on Sunday”,  (1) “Warning”, and (7) “Dead Beat”. “Minority”; is my life’s new theme song. Why be the majority when you can be the minority, go against the grain, and do your own thing? This is the ultimate Green Day song! “Misery”; reminds me of The Beatles’ “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite”;, only much, much cooler. “Church on Sunday”;, “Warning”;, and “Dead Beat”; are just plain cool. The best thing about “Warning”; is that those songs aren’t only entertaining tracks on the album.

ALL OF THE SONGS ON THIS ALBUM ARE AWESOME! Every time I listen to it, it gets better. By the way, according to the beginning of “Blood, Sex and Booze”; has a clip of “a very professional dominatrix, Mistress Simone”;, whipping Tone, Green Day’s 19-year-old engineer. Do I completely like this album? Damn Skippy! It has great lyrics and vocal work, awesome themes, and pointless cursing! There is no downside to this album. Get it as soon as you can! Run! Go!
