Rolling Stone has released their end of the year list of the "50 best albums of 2012," with Green Day's ¡Uno! coming in at number eight.
"Green Day took a vacation from sweeping rock operas and spent 2012 banging out hot, hook-mad punk rock like it was 1994 all over again. The first installment in their ¡Uno!-¡Dos!-¡Tré! album trilogy flails and bashes and rants like a spiky dervish - from the Clash-disco of "Kill the DJ" to the mod-Who blood rush of "Carpe Diem." Billie Joe Armstrong blitzes past his 40th birthday without losing the bullshit-calling rage that keeps a man young, cranky and always on the lookout for girls who think "Won't you be my bloody valentine?" is a cool pickup line."
It would be pretty cool if all three albums from the trilogy were included in the list, or even in order, but sadly that was not the case. Other band's that made the list include Bob Dylan, Frank Ocean, and Bruce Springsteen taking the number one spot.

So effectively, they put Uno to represent the trilogy?
