Billie Joe writes great songs. There are definitely no songs that just "take up space". Walking Contradiction talks about bands that are "sell outs". "Talk is cheap and lies are expensive." The album itself is about when Billie went back to his hometown and everyone hated him and thought him and his band were sellouts. "Insomniac" is definitely Green Day's darkest but one their best albums.
Overall Impression — 10
The only album I can even compare this to is Dookie. And I still dont know which album is my favorite. If you like Dookie definitely get this album but if you dont have Dookie either definetly get that. They are both definitely worth the money. The standout tracks (my favorite) are: Armatage shanks, Brat, Geek stink breath, 86, Panic song, Brain stew, Jaded and Westbound sign. I do like the other songs but these are my favorite. Other bands I listen to are NOFX, Rancid, Offspring, Finch, The Used and more.
