4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for a b-side
Okay, so this CD is mainly made up of cover songs and album rejects... But So What?! It's great, every song is as good as the next (even if some are a bit short).

Ha Ha You're Dead is the Gem of the album. It makes you want to jump about like an idiot and shout the lyrics. Other tracks such as Rotting and On the Wagon are lovely and Do Da Da and Outsider are...

2.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, again...
The latest Green Day regurgitation, following compilation "International Superhits" (2001), should be met with a deserving lack of enthusiasm; the songs will be long known to anyone who has followed the band over the past 7 years, while the quality of music is insufficient to greatly impress any newer fans. "Desensitized", one of the more noteworthy...

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Day King's Of Punk, 29 Jun. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Shenanigans (Audio CD)
Green Day have already proved their worth with song after song album after album of sheer pop-punk heaven all thats left to do now is to round it all up with a B-sides album with cover versions and rare unreleased tracks. Although a B-sides album it can still compete with the best of them for your cash. Billie joe armstrong could write decent songs in his sleep. This may not be the best Green Day album ever but it's enough to put a smile on your face. If you've never heard Green Day with their melodic pop-punk riffs and amusing lyrics then you would'nt go far wrong splashing out on this beauty with it's perfect cover of punk legends The Ramones 'Outsider'. Green Day have released another album of pop-punk heaven. LONG LIVE THE KINGS OF PUNK!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 10 Dec. 2003

Green Day are legends on the pop-punk scene, as many know, around the world. They bring out top quality albums, such as 'Dookie', which is probably the most well-known as far as Green Day albums go.
This album is no exception. It's pretty damn awesome! Having been a fan of Green Day for many years, I own most of their albums, ranging from the true punk songs from some of their earlier albums, to the more casual songs from albums like 'Warning'. This CD has a range of tracks on it, varying from fast, lively, and loud 'I wanna be on TV', to the slower, quieter 'On the wagon'.
The album is different to most albums for one particular reason - the tracks on it aren't just popular songs that thousands of people in the world have over-played. The tracks on here are songs that they've chosen NOT to include in past albums. Out-takes, such as 'Desensitized', are brilliant, as nobody has EVER heard them before this album came onto the market.
Each of the songs is different, in its own manner - 'Scumbag' offers something not unlike 'Basket Case', but it's got its own different sound to it, although something that's easily recognisable as Green Day.
The album goes out with a boom, with the final track 'Ha Ha, you're dead'. The song has a great tune to it, as well as something not heard before on ANY of the Green Day albums. The lyrics are brilliant, and the song, in my opinion, is one of Green Day's better ones.
For all Green Day fans, this is essential to add to your collection, and for anyone just discovering Green Day, it's guaranteed to impress.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting ... i guess ...., 3 July 2002
This review is from: Shenanigans (Audio CD)
Green Day - gods of pop rock undeniably, and this album helps to set their title in stone. A refreshing blend of the fast-paced yet almost irritatingly catchy songs of their earlier years combined with the more tranquil covers and slower b-side songs which combine together to form an album which is sure to bring a tear to any true Green Day fans eyes. Although lacking the continuity and solidarity of earlier albums - noteably Dookie, Nimrod and Kerplunk its serves its purpose, although occasionaly i cannot help but feel the true Green Day sound is lost slightly, only to be jolted back by songs such as "Scumbag Keith Dakin, in which Billie Joe re-asserts his near nasal quality vocals to provide a true Green Day song which is certain to confirm any fans idea that Green Day have again pulled it off. A Must Buy for any fan, although newer fans may wish to consider earlier albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veteran punkers pull it off again with their latest release, 24 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Shenanigans (Audio CD)
Although most Green Day fans would rather have had a brand new album than a collection of b-sides and cover songs, it has to be said that this album is truly marvellous and shows that, even with b-sides, Green Day are far and away better than any of the new breed of punkers snapping at their heels. Even though Green Day have been around as a band for quite a long time now, their musical skill and talent as band increases with each subsequent album and they so no sign of growing stale. The only downside to this album is the inclusion of cover songs. geen Day have plenty of talent and surely do not need to resort to doing covers of other peoples songs - with their former albums Green Day have shown that they have a mastery of song writing and a clever turn of lyrics not to be forund elsewhere. Nevertheless, this is a truly great album and one all punk fans should own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punk Kings Return, 3 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Shenanigans (Audio CD)
"Shenanigans" is a very appropriate title for these non-album odds and sods tracks. This B-Sides collection will sit perfectly next to your copy of International Superhits.
Billy Joe once again proves his skills as a song writer in such gems like "Desensitized" and "HA HA Your Dead" both concerning violence to other people and not giving a damn while doing it.
This improves on the "Warning" album by miles as all instruments are at equal positions rather than just the drumming skills of Tre Cool.
Green Day also prove they are capable of making classics out of orignals with their cover of the Ramones' "Outsider" and The Kinks' "Tired of Waiting for you".
The music blends well with the lyrics, i mean who could start a song with a guy brutally beating himself up with different objects "Desensitized", or sing about the night after the party "Suffocate" and of course there is "Espionage" taken from the Austin Powers 2 soundtrack.
Green Day once again have risen to the top with this collection of "Shenanigans"

5.0 out of 5 stars Bits and Pieces, but magnificent, 3 July 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Shenanigans (Audio CD)
I got this album and I didn't know what to expect, but it truly is a valuable addition to my Green Day collection. It has a really diverse range of songs (some old, some new, some covers)- and this diversity of styles just adds to the appeal. Songs like "Desensitized" and "Ha Ha Your Dead" are so very, very good but the rest all come very close and are all amazing.
If you don't have this- buy it.
