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.
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

Top Customer Reviews
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."
P.S. If you hate me for my review, get a quarter and call someone who cares.
1. Suffocate: Second favorite song on the album. Fast song, funny lyrics, catchy 5/5

yeah..theres my review that was probaly no help at all. but so what
you should check out this album...
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.
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.
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"

In my opinion this is Green Day's most unique album, the soft sounding guitar riffs and slow drum beats are what gives it such a unique sound. It's a personal favorite of mine!Published 19 months ago by Andrew Teichroeb

This CD is a total load of junk, and not my type of music. If u take the CD and cut it down to Espionage and Ha Ha Ur Dead, I would be just fine. Read morePublished on March 11 2004 by Andrew Mehegan
Okay, maybe the heading is a little rough, but I had to get your attention.

This basically collects some of the B-sides from Dookie, Insomniac, Nimrod, and Warning. Unless you're a Green Day completist you really shouldn't worry about seeking this one out. Read morePublished on Jan. 10 2004 by R. Brown
