The Nimrods Podcast - new Green Day discussion podcast!

Recommended Posts

TheNimrodsPodcast

Hi all! 

We recently kicked off a new podcast all about Green Day and wanted to get it on the radar of our fellow Green Day fans! It's called The Nimrods Podcast, you can check it out pretty much anywhere you listen to podcasts. We'd love to know what you all think!

https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-nimrods-podcast/id1456010737

Each week we randomly choose three Green Day songs--one from the Lookout! Records "old school era," one from the Dookie to Warning "middle era," and then one from the "modern era" of American Idiot and beyond--then we dive deep into discussing each track and add them to our ever-expanding Green Day song rankings list. The goal is to eventually discuss and rank every single Green Day song onto one big "definitive" list ;) We're four episodes deep, we've already hit some classics from all across the catalog, and we'll be having guests from the punk scene join on future episodes too. 

We're just a couple goofballs chatting about our (and god's) favorite band, but we're real excited about it and would really appreciate you giving it a listen if podcasts are your thing. Thanks!!

@TheNimrodsPodcast  Dudes, I just listened to episode one on Spotify and this was awesome. You guys are funny and very entertaining. I usually just get frustrated by rankings and analysis because I never agree with them but I thought your analysis of the first few songs was really insightful and accurate. I know I might disagree when you get to more Trilogy stuff but that’s okay, it’s still interesting stuff to discuss and think about. Your appreciation of Billie Joe’s songwriting skill is pure love.  Consider me a regular listener ❤️👏

I’m ashamed to say I binged the first three last night ☺️

Didn't occur to me to come back and say thanks guys, these are great!  So far only had time to  listen to two but thoroughly enjoying them.

These are surprisingly really well done, like, I wasn't expecting a competent recording with nice microphones and an engineer! I had thought of doing a green day pod going through their discography, but i don't have the equipment or co-host to make it as nice as this. Also, One of My Lies over Stuck with Me is a crime. 💅

I watched the first episode. Very good sound and microphone. You're pretty good.
Sometime I wish I was bilingual to enjoy it better.

But I respect the fact that they made a good argument for it though. Some of these songs are difficult to compare but in the end going with the one that is played more often and considered more of a standout on the album it’s on is fair.  I know I won’t agree with every decision but I like the way they break the songs down and evaluate them.

Whoa thank you all so much for giving it a listen and all the kind words!! Seriously means a lot! We do new episodes every Wednesday and you can hear us get progressively weirder haha. We do a lot of joking around about our list being "definitive" but honestly the most fun part is hearing from other GD fans about their takes on where songs should land. I can only imagine how hard it's going to be to rank songs once there's even more on the list haha. 

Thanks again!!

I want to know what the first song will be that beats Good Riddance lol.  Also Billie’s weird old friends Mike and Tre will now be forever iconic to me. Keep up with the running jokes 😄

Yeah we definitely try to at least make a decent argument for our silly opinions lol. And we try to be honest about how a lot of our takes are tangled up in the sheer sentimental value we have for the records we listened to the most as kids haha.

I'm surprised you guys didn't mention Less Than Jake's Anthem when talking about Cavallo. That was one of the best non-Green Day records he produced.

Good call! That album is rad, Cavallo's got the magic touch!

A lot of the mixers and engineers were a big part of his albums as well. You guys mentioned that Billie Joe put two amps together to get that unique guitar sound in your second episode. That was actually something that Jerry Finn showed him. Jerry Finn was notorious for blending two amps together to get that guitar sound that you hear on those early major label records.
