Product Description

Product Description

Green Day fans have rocked out this spring with a blockbuster tour, and now this summer the party continues with Shenanigans, a collection of rarities from the modern rock superheroes. Following the gold-certified greatest hits package International Superhits! and gold International Supervideos (both released in late 2001), and Green Day's musical omnipresence during ESPN's Winter X Games, Shenanigans provides core fans a bridge to the band's next studio album, expected in 2003.

Amazon.ca

Green Day's 2001 singles collection, International Superhits, was nice, but now these San Francisco East Bay punks are really spoiling us. Shenanigans sweeps up Green Day's assorted rarities, oddities, and B-sides into one surprisingly coherent package. The poppy "Suffocate" is just as good as anything that showed up on the previous compilation. "I Want to Be on TV" is unruly American pop punk at its best. And the smart surf-guitar instrumental "Espionage" will already be familiar to anyone who owns the Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me soundtrack. Meanwhile, the straight-faced cover of The Kinks' easy-listening favorite "Tired of Waiting" is truly something to behold. Sure, some of these tracks would have benefited from withering in obscurity forever--like "DUI," a questionable, mariachi-flavored tribute to drinking and driving--but the rest capture Green Day in fine style. --Aidin Vaziri

This Album is so unbelieveably cool. I'll give you the rundown:
Track 1 (Suffocate): A soothing, yet cool song. One of my faves
Track 2 (Desensitized): A heavy beginning. Turn up the bass for cool sound. Second only to "Basket Case" (on Dookie)
Track 3 (You Lied): A relatively slow song for them. Not on my Top Ten List.
Track 4 (Outsider): A Great song. The story of my life. Nice pace, beat, notes, lyrics.
Track 5 (Don't wanna Fall in Love): My least favorite song. Words are ok, but the notes make it sound like country. Eww[...]
Track 6 (Espionage): The only non-lyrical song on the album, it still kicks.
Track 7 (I wanna be on TV): Great tune. It's just too Short.
Track 8 (Scumbag): Great song, easy to sing.
Track 9 (Tired of Waiting for you): Just OK
Track 10 (Sick of me): So cool, so easy to remember. Go on, dance. You know you want to.
Track 11 (Rotting): Cool, but a little too depressing.
Track 12 (Do Da Da): cool, smooth, great guitars. Major props.
Track 13 (On the Wagon): Same as Track 5. Ew[...] Country
Track 14 (Ha ha you're dead): Oh yeah. This rocks. Need I say more?
Well, thats it. To those who like it, Rock on. To those who never heard it, take a walk on the wild side. This is the gateway of CDs (It is a gateway to punk rock and heavy metal)
To those who hate it, "When you're ship is going down, I'll swim by and watch you drown. Haha you're dead, Haha you're dead, Haha you're dead."
Thank you
P.S. If you hate me for my review, get a quarter and call someone who cares.

This just has to be the greatest B-Sides and Rarities compilation ever. Because most of the time when I get a b-sides album there are usually a few weak tracks. But this album is void of weakness.
Some things that I WAS disapointed in was it didn't include all of their b-sides. They took "DUI" off and put it on the UK release only, they didn't put "The Ballad of Wilhelm Fink" on there, even though it's only 30 seconds long, it is still a great song. They also didn't put the original version of "Good Riddance" that was a b-side on the "Brain Stew/Jaded" single. Well, even with that said, it was a great album. It was just too short and could have had 3 more songs on it.
1.)Suffocate: 5/5.
2.)Desensitized: 5/5. This song was originally supposed to appear on the South Park:Chef Aid album, but for some reason never made it.
3.)You Lied: 5/5.
4.)Outsider: 4/5. Not my favorite Ramone's song, not my favorite cover.
5.)Don't Want To Fall In Love: 5/5.
6.)Espionage: 5/5. Originally used in the Austin Powers movie I guess, I wouldn't know, I never saw it. It sounds like 60's spy movie theme song.
7.)I Want To Be On TV: 5/5. Cover of the 80's hardcore band Fang. I love it even more than the original.
8.)Scumbag: 3/5. Poorly written lyrics, but a catchy song. I usually skip this one.
9.)Tired of Waiting For You: 4/5. I didn't like the Kink's version and I really don't like this one except for the fact the song is a Green Day song.
10.)Sick: 5/5.
11.)Rotting: 5/5. Dark and sort of monotonous. This is the song which started me into doom metal bands oddly enough.
12.)Do Da Da: 5/5.
13.)On The Wagon: 5/5.
14.)Ha Ha You're Dead: 5/5. More poorly written lyrics via Mike Dirnt, but this song is a winner. They better start playing this one at shows, this'll be another fan favorite like "King For A Day"

Pop-punk followers like Blink-182 may have eclipsed Green Day in the past few years, but the Bay Area trio's 2001 greatest hits collection, International Superhits, was an excellent reminder of how seductive this band can be when pumping out those Modern Rock radio gems. Shenanigans is the flip side of Superhits, collecting Green Day's b-sides and cover tunes into a compilation that jells. It kicks off smashingly, the boys cranking out "Suffocate", "Desensitized", and "You Lied" with all the energy and snottiness of their biggest hits. The covers of the Ramones ("Outsider") and the Kinks ("Tired of Waiting for You") are faithfully executed; but the next two ("Don't Wanna Fall in Love" and "Rotting") are uninspired filler; and the surf instrumental "Espionage," seems out of place amid the bubblegum punk and hardcore. That's not to say there isn't plenty of fist-pumping fun here, particularly for die hard fans; the fast and furious "I Want to be on TV" thrashes like the band's pre-Dookie performances on Berkeley's Gilman Street punk scene. "Sick of Me" and the previously unreleased "Ha Ha You're Dead" are both very solid anthems; "Ha Ha You're Dead" along with "Desensitized" are my two favorite tracks on this album. Even the shuffling "On the Wagon Again" is a surprising countryish charmer. This collection of odds and sods proves Green Day were every bit as passionate as their first generation punk heroes.
