The Doubters Are Lacking An Excuse Now,
This review is from: Shenanigans (Audio CD)
The key to a Green Day song is the hook, one listen and you will never forget it, particularly every single they released in the 7 year span between Dookie and Warning.
Contributing to International Superhits is the flip side Shenanigans, B-Sides, covers, rarities, almost an new album with songs that never made it, and you wonder why they never did.
Nearly every song on Shenanigans has a charm, whether it be the straight forward punk anthems "Suffocate", "Scumbag", "Sick of Me" and "Do Da Da", or the more mellower tunes of "Rotting" and "On The Wagon".
I have to say the greatest assets of the album are the crystal decent covers of "Outsider" and "Tired of Waiting For You" sounding just like The Ramones and The Kinks respectively.
My reason for me giving it four stars is the slight problem of certain songs being overshadowed by greater tunes on the album, but overall its essential as it can get, a worthy purchase and shows that Green Day will never die.
