GREEN DAY - NIMROD (2021 REISSUE)
Released in 1997, Green Day's Nimrod is celebrated for its musical range and experimental songwriting. The album was certified double platinum in the U.S. and Canada. Singles included "Hitchin' A Ride," "Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life)," "Redundant," and "Nice Guys Finish Last." Lyrics on the album deal with growing up and having children.
The members of Green Day were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day achieved breakout success with 1994's Dookie which has sold over 10 million copies to date in the U.S. alone. Widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, Green Day would go on to release Insomniac (1995), Nimrod (1997), and Warning (2000).
In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation's attention and sold more than six million copies in the U.S. Mojo declared, "It's exhilarating stuff, the kind of record that sets new parameters as to what is possible from a punk rock'n'roll band in the 21st century." In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway. The band went on to release the critically acclaimed 21st Century Breakdown (2009) and the album trilogy Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, and Green Day ¡Tré! (2012).
Green Day is one of the world's best-selling bands of all time, having sold more than 75 million records worldwide. The group has won five Grammy Awards. On April 18, 2015, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a part of the 2015 class in what was their first year of eligibility for induction.
