Green Day: International Superhits
0

Sound — 8
This is a collection of Green Day's best hits and it's a pretty decent album which has heavy songs like Brain Stew and slow ones like Time of your life. Billy Joe Armstrong uses really catchy riffs which are relatively easy to play on the guitar.

Lyrics — 10
The lyrics are good which are about lots of different things and when it comes to songwriting Billy Joe is a genius. Who would have thought simple riffs like Welcome to paradise and Brain stew would be so catchy with only about 3 chords. The best lyrics are probably on Basket case.

Overall Impression — 8
It's their best album with 21 of their best songs put together to make one good album.The best songs on the albbum are Basket case, When I come around, Brain stew, Hitchin a ride and Minority. If it was stolen I'd probably get it again or get a friend to copy it. It's worth buying now that the price has been lowered. And if you're into Green Day or punk get it.

    Um, was that even English??? Green Day rocks. And kfong3, J.A.R. is NOT a 'gay' song. It's a very personal feeling song written when one of the band's friends died. Minority is da bomb though.

    I love International Superhits, it has to be one of my favorite CDs of all time. I especially love Poprocks and Coke, Longview, and Brain Stew.

    Although American Idiot is by far their best, this album is easily best value for money. A mega 21 songs!!! I'm still not quite sure what to think of Macy's Day Parade. Good to relax to, but i'm not often in a relaxing mood...

    And who gives a ****? They write good music, is it not loud, fast, or angry enough to be "punk"?

    ok, so like on my limewire i was searching green day songs,and there is this green day song called ''on my own here we go''. so like is that a song?? cuz when i saw that brain stew just like went through my head. and so like that couldve been a mess up of the song name,or i could be wrong and that could be a song i never heard of,but watever.

    Vrstone87, dude, whadda ya talkin about? How do you know what punk is when you dont even know Johnny Rotten's name? I respect Johnny, dont get me wrong, but i strongly disagree with that statement....how could you say that man? Thats really not good to say they're not punk considering the fact....uh...they kinda...uh...sorta...uh...no definantly...REVIVED IT!!!! Green Day (and Sex Pistols) ROCK!!!! (And they're both punk)....
    belavista man
    I like Green Day and they do rock (Good one stjimmy1810) but some of the songs on this album could have been a whole lot better...
