Green Day Ranked

I'm not sure how often this list has been made, but since I'm very familiar with their entire discography, I figured I would make it anyway.
1Green Day
Dookie


As the album that ushered in the "Punk Revival", this obviously deserves the top spot. It's an instantly enjoyable album, while also being surprisingly complex for Pop Punk, with a good amount of unexpected, "change-of-pace" sequences sprinkled throughout. This also includes Tre Cool's most interesting drum work.
2Green Day
Insomniac


I love the heavier and darker approach to this album (for Pop Punk at least). However, the songwriting is a bit simpler than Dookie, which is why I feel this is slightly inferior, even though it's extremely solid throughout.
3Green Day
American Idiot


Green Day's most ambitious album and they pulled it off quite well. This may have too much of a produced sheen for some, but there isn't a bad song on here, there's good variety, and this contains arguably Green Day's most impressive song, Jesus Of Suburbia, which doesn't have any weak moments and flows perfectly.
4Green Day
Kerplunk


I find myself coming back to this album more than any other Green Day album. This is perfect for the summer. However, the comedic song, "Dominated Love Slave", is usually a skip-able track for me if I'm not in the mood for it. A lot of these songs sound pretty similar as well.
5Green Day
Nimrod


Green Day's most varied album, as it contains their softest songs and their heaviest songs. Some of these songs though, while still pretty good, are weaker and less catchy than needed for a Green Day album.
6Green Day
39/Smooth


This is pretty raw, juvenile stuff, but it's still pretty damn catchy, with some fan favorites. There's a strong lack of variety here as well though. "Rest" is the only song that changes up the pace, and it's one of my personal favorite Green Day songs.
7Green Day
Warning


A solid album no doubt, and I appreciate the "rootsy" sound they were going for, but some of the songs are pretty average.
8Green Day
21st Century Breakdown


Green Day tried to become bigger, better, and more varied than American Idiot on this album, and their ambition is admirable, but they simply did not execute well enough. Nearly half of this album is mediocre and some of the songs are very cheesy, even for Pop Punk.
