Green Day not only improve on the pop punk formula, they also experiment and mix up the sound they already have perfected, with crazy fun and intensely entertaining results. From showtune, to surf rock, to My Chemical Romance-style emo alt rock, it's got something here for most rock fans.

Favorite Jams: Hitchin' A Ride, Platypus (I Hate You), Take Back

An album that I did need to grow to like, but when it clicked, it did a lot. The album loves playing around with random instruments such as the harmonica, and explore genres from surf-rock to punk, to make a confusing, yet just amazingly re-playable, eighteen-track mess. The magic of this album is that however much is strays into other styles, usually, you can tell that this album is rooted into the band’s signature sound.
