Product Description

Product Description

Let this be a Warning: "Green Day have risen from their two-year slumber, ready to reclaim their title as punk provocateurs." (Alternative Press) Returning to the raw power, freedom and excitement of their early days. Green Day, the band that sparked neo-punk, punk metal and the ska revival, offer Warning:, the most passionate and hope-filled album of their career. Certified at 500 thousand units by the RIAA. (2/01)


After two years off following the release of the genre-expanding Nimrod, the usually insouciant trio Green Day are open to some weighty self-analysis. Gone are the raging rants, cartoonish antics, and anthropological musings about the punk scene, replaced by an introspection that brings to mind Michael Stipe and Bono. Like the U2 frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong still hasn't found what he's looking for, but he knows where he's been and is eager to move past the days when Green Day were considered the clown princes of rock. Witness "Jackass," which cautions, "Everybody loves a joke, but no one likes a fool." Proving that they aren't fools, Green Day take a substantial step forward, exploring new rhythms, sonics, and subjects. While many of the tracks are still cheeky and infectious, the deceptively simple melodies belie a quest for meaning, faith, and fulfillment. There's a tentative optimism here that's tempered by irony and flashes of self-loathing. Still, Warning transcends the darkness that clouded 1995's Insomniac. No longer so under the sway of the Buzzcocks and the Ramones, this time Armstrong and company dip into the early rock canon--the Beatles and Bob Dylan, among them. As a result, their first self-produced album is more "Nowhere Man" than "Blitzkrieg Bop." --Jaan Uhelszki

By now, if you've heard the opinions of many a punk rock fanatic, you'd believe Warning is the album where Green Day turns pop, sells out, and loses both the hardcore edge that propelled their 1994 album Dookie to smash status and, more recently, the genre-expanding innovation on 1997's Nimrod. When Warning debuted in October 2000, it generated a mixed reaction from both critics and the fan base. Its less than stellar reception was mirrored on the sales chart, where it debuted at #4 but quickly bottomed out.
But despite all the bad press, I really enjoy this album. While it rates a notch below Green Day's earlier outings, it's much more cathcy and upbeat than most other punk rock. Granted, Warning doesn't feature much of the high-octane intensity of similar bands like The Offspring, but I think Green Day sounds best in a simple, upbeat setting, the kind that made their 1994 breakout single "Basket Case" a smash. In Warning, the trio mixes it up a little with instruments like mandolins, saxaphones, and acoustic guitars, and the end result is a well-rounded package with plenty of zest and infectious hooks. Here's a track by track rundown:
Warning - 9/10 Great opener, nice use of acoustic guitars
Blood, Sex, and Booze - 9/10 Good guitars and chorus
Church on Sunday - 9.5/10 One of the album's best, upbeat and infectious
Fashion Victim - 8/10
Castaway - 9/10 Very catchy
Misery - 6.5/10 A little too unorthodox for my tastes, but at least they're not resting on their laurels
Deadbeat Holiday - 8.5/10 Great chorus
Jackass - 8/10 Pretty good. I especially like the jazzy portion
Hold On - 7.5/10 Also pretty good, I like the portion with just guitars and percussion
Waiting - 8/10
Minority - 8/10 Doesn't hold up fabulously over the years, but it's still catchy
Macy's Day Parade 9.5/10 A moving, quiet song in the vain of Good Riddance

After seeing the American Idiot musical, I decided to complete my Green Day discography. Out of the six CDs I ordered, I started with this one and was stuck on it for two weeks.

It's a little different from the others and for me it is a good thing. I am a huge GD fan, but let's face it, sometimes it feels like they copying themselves. Warning is a very good album, right up there with Am Idiot and 21st Century.

Don't hesitate to get!

This, Dookie, and Insomniac are what I like to call "The Holy Green Day Trinity" because they are my favorite (and therefore the best) Green Day records. Warning reminds me of "Road to Ruin" era Ramones mixed with "Give 'Em Enough Rope"/"London Calling" era Clash. It's just brilliant. It's like all of the catchy-ness of Dookie, the great punk rock lyrics of Insomniac, mixed with it's own sense of style. Although a much more laid back album than Dookie and Insomniac, it still maintains this sense of punk rock sneer that gives it so much character. Let's do a run through of the songs real quick.
1. Warning - Proof that acoustic guitars can still rock just as well as electric. This song just gives the message to live your life and stop worrying about all the rules society gives you to obey.
2. Blood, Sex and Booze - An almost rockabilly-esque song about a sadist/masochistic lifestyle.
3. Church on Sunday - Taking us back to the songwriting style of early Green Day, this basically comes from the perspective of a guy telling a girl that he likes that he'll do anything if she'll be with him. (Ramones - I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend, anyone?)
4. Fashion Victim - I love this song. A driving punk rock fist pumping song about life style obsession and materialism. Reminds me of early Clash.
5. Castaway - A catchy song about being a social outcast and liking it that way.
6. Misery - Is this really Green Day? A great experimental song (featuring Tre Cool on Farfisa, hey!), telling a great story about several characters all interlocked with each other in some coincidental way. Great songwriting.
7. Deadbeat Holiday - Absolutely my favorite song on the album. Foot-stomping pop-punk featuring great lyrics about being an outcast by definition but still holding true to yourself.
