Product Description

Product Description

The group's second full length album was released on Lookout Records before their fortuitous move to Warner Brothers. This is where the trio solidified with the addition of Tre Cool on drums who fit like a glove with Mike Drint's bass lines to form one tight rhythm section. They provided the instrumental backing to Billie Joe Armstrong's energetic guitar licks and searing songs that firmly esconced the group at the forefront of a neo-punk movement of the early 1990's. Includes "2000 Light Years Away", "Christie Road" and the outstanding "Welcome To Paradise".

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome CD! Buy it! Nov. 1 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you like Green Day's debut album (39 Smooth), chances are you'll like this one too. This album is the first to feature Tre Cool as the drummer, and he's still in the band to this day. Well, on to the album. Though the songs it are all great, a few really stand out:
2000 Light Years Away - Billie Joe wrote this one about his girlfriend at the time, who was living in a different part of the country (they're married and have 2 kids now). Quite the interesting little track.
Welcome To Paradise - The original version of the hit single from Dookie. Though not quite as perfect as the Dookie version, you really must give them credit for having a song this cool way back in 1992.
Dominated Love Slave - This song isn't really that good, but it sure is funny. I'm not even sure if it's Billie Joe on lead vocals, and if it is, he sure sounds messed up!
My Generation - Cover of a song by the Who (a classic rock band), which Iron Maiden would also cover later on. Green day made an already cool song even better!
Of course, there are other songs on this album that are great, but you've got to listen to it to decide for yourself. Get out there and buy it now! And if you can't find it in a local store, that's what this web site's all about!

After Green Day released 1,039/Smooth in 1990 and going on their first tour, they released their second album, which would be their last for Lookout! Records. Also, this was their first album with Frank Edwin Wright III (better known as Tre Cool) behind the drum kit.
If 1,039/Smooth was more unpolished and punk, then this album has slightly more of a "Dookie" feel, but still raw. For "Kerplunk!", Green Day's overall feel was, 'If it ain't broke, why fix it?'. And fix it they didn't. For the most part, it features Green Day's now infamous and loved three-chord, two-to-three-minute punk-pop style. But WAIT! That's not all. For a few tracks, Billie Joe and company tried some experimentation...
A hick love song. ("Dominated Love Slave")
Acoustic Guitars. ("Words I Might Have Ate")
A ballad. ("No One Knows")
And, also on this CD, are four extra tracks recorded by Green Day when they were 15, under the title "Sweet Children". The songs on here are actually really good, including a punk rock version of The Who's "My Generation". (Take that, Wimp Bizkit.)
One thing to notice on this album: Green Day improved their songwriting skills. Take this line from "One Of My Lies": "Why does my life have to be so small / and death is forever / and does forever have a life to call its own?". Or "No One Knows": "Call me irresponsible / call me habitual / but when you think of me / does it fill your head with schemes? / Better think again / 'cause no one knows." Somehow I doubt that the Juliana Theory can come up with that. (Or anything beyond breaking up with your girlfriend.) So there's talent to be had here.
Anyway, if you want to hear some great vintage Green Day, check this one out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic sophomore album Dec 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
Kerplunk! (1992.) Green Day's second album, and the first to feature Tre Cool on drums.
These days, Green Day stands as one of the best-known pop-punk bands on the face of the earth, and they are unquestionably the masters of the genre. For nearly a decade and a half, they have been serving up music that has rarely failed to please. Recently, the band's first two albums, 39/Smooth and Kerplunk! were rereleased, with EP tracks featured as bonuses. This review is for the latter, Green Day's second album. Read on for my review.
The first thing I should probably state about this album is that this IS NOT the pop-punk Green Day most people know and love, nor is it straight-up hard and heavy punk. It's more like a happy medium between the two. However, the band's musical quality is nothing less than that of their better-known material. Following the release of their first album, drummer John went off to college, so they replaced him with the now infamous Tre Cool. The opening track, 2000 Light Years Away, is one that Billie Joe Armstrong, the band's lead guitarist and vocalist wrote for a girl he met while he and the band were touring America (the girl in question is now his wife, and they have two children.) This a excellent melodic pop-punk song as only early Green Day could do. Another excellent song that uses similar stylings is Christie Road. Since Green Day is normally considered a "punk rock" band, it's amazing how good their melodic stuff is! One major track of interest featured here is the original, pre-Dookie version of Welcome To Paradise. This version is less polished than its Dookie counterpart, but it's still a good track, and certainly a premonition to their future successes.

5.0 out of 5 stars When punk was good... Nov. 11 2003
Format:Audio CD
Green Day's "Kerplunk," along with Blink-182's "Cheshire Cat" and the Goo Goo Dolls' "Hold Me Up," shows two things: what happens when undergrounds make it big all of a sudden ("Dookie," "Enema of the State," "Boy Named Goo") and give up their punk roots. Some fans say "39/Smooth" was Green Day's best, but I can't get enough of "Kerplunk." From "2000 Lightyears Away" to "One for the Razorbacks" to "Christine Road" to the original version of "Welcome to Paradise," there's nothing not to love. Even their scrappy 4-track EP tacked on the end here holds a strange charm. Billy Joe's voice is much younger, Mike's basslines are more straight punk (no 'bass solos' a la "Longview"), and Tre rocks as always. One reason I feel this album passes "39/Smooth" is because Tre is just a better drummer than John, point blank. Much more driving. Anyway, this album isn't for the Green Day fan who picked up "Warning" and thinks "Time Of Your Life" is the band's best song (in my opinion, one of their best songs happens to be "2000 Lightyears Away"). So here's a list--if you liked the songs on the list, you'll like "Kerplunk."
1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours: anything
Dookie: "Burnout," "Welcome to Paradise"
Nimrod: "The Grouch," "Prosthetic Head"
Insomniac: "Geek Stink Breath," "Armatage Shanks"
Warning: "Blood Sex and Booze" (see "Dominated Love Slave")
