Official Oh Love Music Video


Green Day were kids from working-class backgrounds who came of age in the underground punk scene in Berkeley. Though they had already released two albums (1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours and Kerplunk), the band truly announced its arrival with 1994's Dookie, a dynamic blast of exuberant punk-pop that sold 15 million copies and earned the band its first Grammy® Award for Best Alternative ...

Editorial Reviews

After two years off following the release of the genre-expanding Nimrod, the usually insouciant trio Green Day are open to some weighty self-analysis. Gone are the raging rants, cartoonish antics, and anthropological musings about the punk scene, replaced by an introspection that brings to mind Michael Stipe and Bono. Like the U2 frontman, Billie Joe Armstrong still hasn't found what he's looking for, but he knows where he's been and is eager to move past the days when Green Day were considered the clown princes of rock. Witness "Jackass," which cautions, "Everybody loves a joke, but no one likes a fool." Proving that they aren't fools, Green Day take a substantial step forward, exploring new rhythms, sonics, and subjects. While many of the tracks are still cheeky and infectious, the deceptively simple melodies belie a quest for meaning, faith, and fulfillment. There's a tentative optimism here that's tempered by irony and flashes of self-loathing. Still, Warning transcends the darkness that clouded 1995's Insomniac. No longer so under the sway of the Buzzcocks and the Ramones, this time Armstrong and company dip into the early rock canon--the Beatles and Bob Dylan, among them. As a result, their first self-produced album is more "Nowhere Man" than "Blitzkrieg Bop." --Jaan Uhelszki

Product Description

Let this be a Warning: "Green Day have risen from their two-year slumber, ready to reclaim their title as punk provocateurs." (Alternative Press) Returning to the raw power, freedom and excitement of their early days. Green Day, the band that sparked neo-punk, punk metal and the ska revival, offer Warning:, the most passionate and hope-filled album of their career. Certified at 500 thousand units by the RIAA.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warning! Green Day has grown up. October 3, 2000
Format:Audio CD
With the release of their fourth major label album "Warning" Green Day shows once again that they aren't your average "punk-rock" band. Gone are the three power chord angst filled songs, but the catchy harmonies that made "Dookie" a commercial success are back. However, this is "Warning" and not "Dookie." The title track in itself asks "Is the cop or am I the one that's really dangerous?" That's pure Green Day...defiance, questioning everything and so on. "Blood, Sex, And Booze" is a good track that has a catchy beat and you just can't help but to tap your toes to. "Church on Sunday" explores the new direction of Green Day, asking the question "If I promise to go to church on Sunday, will you go with me on Friday night? If you live with me I'll die for you and this compromise." "Fashion Victim" explores the pop culture of brand name clothes, asking "what's in the name?" "Castaway" is one of the best tracks on the album, telling the story of a loner trying to find his way. Then, the album gets incredible.."Misery" is a Russian-Spanish style song with acordians used very nicely, and with Bille Joe's vocals telling different stories of troubled people. "Deadbeat Holiday" is a decent song, with a message that attacks all losers who do nothing about themselves. "Hold On" is a song written by BJ for a friend who had three loved ones die in the same year. He says "When there's nothing left to hold on to, you gotta hold on to yourself." "Jackass" is a song about just that...idiots. The main line says "Everybody loves a joke, but no one likes a fool." How true. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars B.J Armstrong+Guitar=Awesome! October 8, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Green Day is the best alternative rock band on the face of the earth! While still retaining that same in your face, "I don't need your authority" style, they have expanded their horizons with great leaps and bounds. It sounds impossible, but they pulled it off. This is definintley their best album out of their other five albums. If you listen to one song off of every album up to Warning, you can hear their style maturing and expanding. This cd has nothing but good, catchy songs with great lyrics and awesome guitar riffs. Green Day has fine tuned their songwriting abilities so that no song is bad. From the haunting rhythm of "Warning", to the hard rock of "Blood, Sex, and Booze"&"Castaway". There's even "Misery", which has a Russian/Spanish beat, "Macy's Day Parade", an acoustic ballad, or the single "Minority", which has really funny lyrics if you listen. Green Day has come a long way from 1039 Slappy Hours, and they are still the best alternative band ever! If you're a green day fan, get this cd, if you like alternative music, get this cd. You won't regret it!

Format:Audio CD
First off I'm SICK of hearing Greenday "fans" scream 'sell-out' b/c ONE album isnt exactly what they like. Any true GD fan should be ashamed of criticizing a group that stayed true to themselves, even if they (GD) themselves changed.
I am like most ppl in saying their first CDs were awesome, even Insomniac. WARNING is a terrific album both lyrically and musically, and is easily the most listenable of any Greenday CD. Anyone who says the 3-chord power songs didnt get at least a TINY bit old is lying. That's why Nimrod was such a success, b/c they made it more interesting, just as they have here.
BS&B, Castaway, Jackass and Minority are all awesome songs, and good old GD. COS is good also as is Deadbeat Holiday and MDP. Waiting and the title track are both weak and annoying, and overall just garbage songs. The rest is nothing fantastic, but it's good solid music nonetheless. And GD still has the funny lyrics and good baselines that we love.
I think we can all agree that the main reason why we love or loved Greenday is because they were original and because they were real. COS, MDP and even Hold On are relative to BJ's life, and are REAL. I think Fashion Victim might've been a token song for us, but the rest IS Greenday, pure and true. Billie Joe once again, like in the beginning of his career, went against the crowd and came out w/ HIS music. He knew he'd ruffle some feathers w/ Warning, just as he did w/ Dookie and the Lookout! Records CDs, but he stayed true to himself. This isnt a group trying to be something it's not , and for that, I applaud them. Buy and enjoy this CD because it's terrific music, not because you're a punk-junkie living in the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars Green Day evolves yet again February 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Who would of thought these three ex-punkers would not only shed the punk image, but mature and evolve into a whole new band. After the release of 1994's "Dookie" Green Day suffered many insults from their once loyal punk fans, claiming they had "sold out". In response to much slandering the boys put out "Insomniac", their hardest, fastest, and most intense record to date, lashing back at the insults with fierce vocals and lyrics. Then it 1997 "Nimrod" was released, which seemed to be the bands farewell speech to the punk community, with the album came a new alternative sound that not only gained them respect in the music community, but a new loyal base of fans. Don't worry folks this whole history lesson does have a point to it, and if your still reading I'm assuming you have figured that out already. "Warning" is not only the band's most mature album yet, it's also another evolution in their sound. Acoustic instead of electric (there still is electric do not worry), integrity not intensity. Yet through all this the signature sound of Green Day has not dissappeared, in fact it's stronger than ever, and the patient fan will reap the enjoyment of listening to this excellent release.

take all of this pop and emo and art and nerd crap off of the punk rock...
haha, you do realize that you called Green Day "Art", right? I think that contradicts anything negative you've said.

But despite that, this might be the most mature thing you've done so far.
