shame they couldn't put in Jesus of Suburbia, but it is 9 minutes long to be fair.

will have to check out the ones I'm not familiar with as I do like what I've heard from them (though not really fussed with their most recent material)

21st Century Breakdown and Revolution Radio are faves of mine that are missing, but I suppose it's difficult to include everything if they only want 1 disc

Very glad Oh Love is one there, such an underrated song in their discography (and one of their only good ones from more recent eras).

That album cover looks like something out of Father Ted, I love it biggrin.gif

I might have to invest in this. I only have their 'American Idiot' album but I love a lot of their earlier stuff too.

I really don't like the chronological ordering on this, I don't know if it works.

It does seem a little lazy. I suppose the whole idea is to showcase the evolution of the band over time through their biggest hits, but I cant help feeling something big like American Idiot or Welcome To Paradise (or even Bang Bang to emphasise their latest album) would be a better album opener.

I agree. I feel Green Day have been one of those acts that have been crying out for a greatest hits collection since their other compilation was just before American Idiot, but this tracking list is a bit disappointing. Chronological tracking lists can work for some acts but seeing all the main hits in the middle just feels wrong. Maybe it'll sound better when actually listening and I suppose some fans may enjoy having their earlier stuff at the start (many rate Dookie as their best album, for instance, whilst anything post 'American Idiot' is sometimes considered too much of a change).

Yeah, I would have opened with a few of their most iconic hits, separated between albums, like this;

1 American Idiot
2 Basket Case
3 Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)
4 Wake Me Up When September Ends

And so on...

It's a shame Revolution Radio didn't make it on there as I much prefer it to Bang Bang, although I am glad Still Breathing is here wub.gif

Ok so this is my attempt at a reshuffled tracklist, listening through in this order I feel would be more exciting for the fans. Opening with Welcome To Paradise and closing with Good Riddance (fitting laugh.gif). I assume Ordinary World is the same version from Revolution Radio but with added vocals of course, and Back In The USA is just kinda there as I have no idea how it sounds.



1. Welcome To Paradise
2. American Idiot
3. Warning
4. Bang Bang
5. Oh Love
6. Basket Case
7. Holiday
8. Ordinary World (feat. Miranda Lambert)
9. She
10. 2000 Light Years Away
11. Boulevard of Broken Dreams
12. Longview
13. Minority
14. Know Your Enemy
15. Hitchin’ a Ride
16. When I Come Around
17. 21 Guns
18. Brain Stew
19. Back In The USA
20. Still Breathing
21. Wake Me Up When September Ends
22. Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)
