Green Day's Triple Threat
by | September 27, 2012
So Green Day are putting out an honest-to-god trilogy in the next few months: three separate records named ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and, yes, ¡Tre!. To honor this week's release of the spirited power-pop throwback ¡Uno!, we dive deep into the catalog of what is in all probability the most successful punk band of the last several decades, offering an extended look at the new record (and the trio's, uh, recent troubles); a dissection of their zillion-selling 1994 breakout, Dookie; a greatest-hits playlist; deeper looks at both pop punk as a whole and the Lookout! Records scene from which the NorCal band initially sprung; and more. Enjoy yourself.
