Time for a Green Day binge, starting with their charismatic debut record here. The band are taking in influences from around them, but are still coming into their own pop-punk-infused sound. It’s solid for a debut of this genre, but didn’t add anything to the overall musical landscape of the 90s.

Color: Yellow
FAV TRACKS: The Judge’s Daughter, Green Day, At the Library,
LEAST FAV: Road to Acceptance, I Was There, Don’t Leave Me

Despite being the first and most unrecognizable album from Green Day, It's actually a good album, not a great album but has some great bops. The only great to good songs in the album were, Disappearing Boy, Road To Acceptance, I Was There, At The Library, 16 and, Dry Ice. Everything else is either decent, meh, or bad. All more I can say is that, More people should know about this album and should give it a good listen if ya want to, my favorite tracks are Disappearing Boy, Road To Acceptance ... read more
