|If Green Day's trilogy were one good album|
Watched artv's video doing exactly this and it's kinda garbage lmao. I like Green Day's trilogy way more than I should (definitely partly because of nostalgia and partly because I have bad taste).So yeah, here's what the trilogy should've been.
Track 1: 99 Revolutions
This perfect opener packs a lot of energy, vaguely references something political and is just a ton of fun; your typical Green Day song. Fuck knows why this was near the end of Tre.
Track 2: Rusty James
Naturally, the second song on any album should be less good than the opener. Rusty James is catchy, fun, and somewhat forgettable.
Track 3: Stray Heart
Stray Heart keeps the fun and would probably have been the lead single. Simply a very cool track, even the bass is audible!
Track 4: Brutal Love
Since we're 4 tracks in, it's time to shift to something a bit more... sentimental. This one features some violins, definitely sentimental. Cool, that's the change of pace done.
Track 5: Loss of Control
You thought this album was getting soft now? Nah, track 5 is super rowdy and edgy! The lyrics are sure as hell about rebelling against something! Fuck! I never liked you anyway! Stupid motherfucker!
Track 6: See You Tonight
Halfway through the record, time for a pointless interlude. It's kind of nice, I guess.
Track 7: Dirty Rotten Bastards
Oh yes! A long song? Full of seemingly randomly changes? You bet! This song is solely part of the album to show that Green Day can, in fact, still make long songs. It's kind of cool, though mostly since it follows a one-mintue one-dimensional interlude.
Track 8: 8th Avenue Serenade
Yeah, this is where the filler starts. This song has some nice melodies. It's mainly nice because it's barely two and a half minutes, though.
Track 9: Nuclear Family
Another relatively cool song that doesn't do much. Who cares about these sections on any album anyway?
Track 10: Walk Away
Ah, sweet, the penultimate track. Of course it's sentimental... but, plot twist, it's got a nice kick to it as well! Time to wake up after the filler section, since it seems like shit's actually going to get interesting again for a little bit.
Track 11: X-Kid
Yeah, fuck it, this song is actually gorgeous and would make a perfect closer. Thanks.
|despite my sarcastic descriptions i do actually really like all these songs n think this would flow well|
|finally a good fucking list |
|It's still terrible|
|list is feature-worthy|
|I love Green Day and hated all three of these releases. Still, it's been years since I've jammed any of these songs, so I'll give this playlist a go.|
|I always thought X-Kid would be an excellent closer|
Still like most of the tracks on these albums but I need to give them another listen
|If Green Day had more than two good albums. :P|
|You owe me a treat, Jesper.|
|thanks for the feature haha, treats 4 every1|
there's a bunch of really nice ideas buried in the trilogy (mostly tre tbh), sadly most of them are slaughtered by repetitive structures or horrendous lyricism
|green day hasn't had a good album since 2004|
|Rusty James is amazing thiguh|
|had one of these when i religiously listened to them years back good times think it went like this|
1. nuclear family
2. missing you
3. stay the night
4. let yourself go
5. stray heart
6. lazy bones
7. 99 revolutions
8. dirty rotten bastards
9. rusty yames
10. x kid
|gotta say its hard sifting through em to find good songs tho|
|LMAO I think everyone who bothered to sit through these albums did this|
|11 is fucking beautiful|
|I’d have either X Kid or Oh Love as the closer (yes I’m one of those sick fucks that enjoys Oh Love)|
|1. Nuclear Family|
2. Stay the Night
3. Let Yourself Go
4. Loss of Control
5. Rusty James
6. Stop When the Red Lights Flash
7. Lazy Bones
8. Stray Heart
10. Missing You
12. Sex, Drugs & Violence
14. Walk Away
Maybe 99 Revolutions, 8th Avenue Serenade, Sweet 16, Fuck Time, Carpe Diem and Fell For You could've been released on a deluxe edition or some B-sides EP.
|Lazy Bones has to on every list |
|1. Oh Love|
2. F*** Time
3. Kill the DJ
4. Drama Queen
6. Sex, Drugs & Violence
8. Angel Blue
9. F*** Time (Reprise)
10. The Forgotten
|those are the worst songs on the trilogy, agreed|
|No Carpe Diem? Best song on the trilogy IMO.|
