|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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A solid album no doubt, and I appreciate the "rootsy" sound they were going for, but
some of the songs are pretty average.
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.
|7 is 2 8 is 8|
|I have a feeling a lot of users will think Warning is too low, but I just think the middle of the album is very passable, except Misery of course.|
|Im glad you have Insomniac so high though, that album rules|
|1 is 1 and 8 is 8 so list is correct.|
|8 is not a pop punk album.|
|True. It's more Pop Rock/Power Pop/Arena Rock.|
|1 is 1 and 8 is 8 so list is correct [x2]|
|5 is 3 imo but 1 is 1 and 8 is 8 so I don't really have an issue with this list|
