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.

If you really think about it, Green Day has been around for a long time. While other bands break up and so on, these guys still know how to put out great music. Some people have given them a hard time for sort of breaking away from their punk roots with the album, "Warning," but I still was able to see the punk side of them. Especially if you've ever seen them live. They have to be one of the best bands ever to see live.
"Schenanigans" (excellent title, by the way) is an outstanding album! It's not a CD of new songs, it's rare songs, B-Sides, cover songs, outtakes, and more. This CD takes me back to the "Dookie" era. There is nothing but punk on this album. There are some serious songs, but most of them are fast and upbeat.
I really enjoy every song on the album. My favourite songs are, "suffocate," "you lied," "don't wanna fall in love," "scumbag," "sick of me," "do da da," and "ha ha you're dead." (Especially "ha ha your dead." An excellent finale to the album.) The only downside to the album is that it is very short. Though it is true that this is how Green Day have always been, it would've been nice to have it just a couple minutes longer. But, that does not take away the greatness from this CD.
If you love Green Day, now or back then, "Schenanigans" is the CD for you. Great songs, great band, and just a great time.
P.S. If you haven't seen these guys live yet, you don't know what you're missing. They are AWESOME live! See them live and see if you can still convince yourself that these guys have no talent.

You know, I've talked about this album with a lot of 'die hard' Green Day fans, and nine times out of ten, I've come away startled after hearing 'Shenanigans' viciously slated. Why? I owm and praise everything produced by Green Day themselves, and (while I favour Greenday's early work of 'Kerplunk' and '1039/smoothed out Slappy Hours' - brilliance) am in love with this album, even more so than the ever popular 'Warning'.
Yes, there's a lot of cover work here, but it isn't just Green Day singing some one else's songs; they've added they're own personal flare and made them uniquely green. I get the definite impression that Green Day weren't necassarily wanting a critically aclaimed number one album. This is Green Day doing what they do best and enjoying it to the full, and I believe they've come up trumps once again.
Something I love about this album is the two additions from Mike Dirnt. I love Billie Joe jsut as much as the next fan, but let's give credit to the under-rated bass player who has given us 'Ha Ha You're Dead' and 'Scumbag'. Thought it was Bille Joe? If you listen to these unforgetable tracks, they have their own style, branching from the Green Day tree but oddly different.
So, what I'm trying to get across here is that 'Shenanigans' is a brilliant and much under-rated masterpiece, inculding remodeled classics and displaying the same talent Green Day fans everywhere know and love. Buy it; you won't regret it.

omg omg omg haha you're dead is such a good song!!!! go get the album just for that song!
this cd's good if you have discovered green day through american idiot or couldn't get their singles.
good kinks cover, sounds practically the same only different singer. espionage is a james bond typa thingy, it's better than their other effort at instrumental (last ride in - nimrod). they are all great.

I've been a Green Day fan for some years now, but tracking down old singles for the b-sides proved beyond my limited patience and opportunity for trawling second-hand music stores. So, having heard all of the tracks (and having just stumbled on the CD and ordered it), I'll walk you through them in chronological order rather than as they're arranged on the CD...
"On The Wagon" is laid-back, simple and lo-fi... very early track but still very pleasant. "Tired Of Waiting" is another ballad, this one a slow and soothing cover. "Do Da Da" is an upbeat "Insomniac"-era recording, "I Want To Be On TV" is decent oldschool punk, and "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" sounds most like most like the "Kerplunk!" recordings.
"Sick Of Me" marks the beginning of the style newer Green Day fans have come to expect; bouncy and fun! "Espionage" is a groovy instrumental 'spy theme' which was noticed and included on the soundtrack to the second Austin Powers film. "Desensitised" features the sound of things smashing, heavy drums and classic Green Day. "Rotting" is a happy jangly track with ludicrously depressing lyrics. "Suffocate" moves on to another happily drum-pounding song, this one about hangovers, and then we have "You Lied", one of my favourite Green Day songs as it has a fantastic bass line to dance or mosh to. "Outsider" and "Scumbag" are newer tracks which mix the older styles with the new approach of "Warning" very successfully.
It's a bit of a shame that this CD doesn't provide the original recording of "Good Riddance" (from the "Brain Stew / Jaded EP"), as I prefer it to the version on "Nimrod".
