Today, October 3rd, marks the 13th anniversary of Green Day's Warning. This was their sixth studio album that was released and came three years after the moderate success of Nimrod. It went Gold in the United States and Platinum in Canada and Australia even though that the album was a completely different turn and sound from the albums that they previously released.
I don't know about any of you guys but if I had to choose a favorite Green Day album or one I could listen to 24/7, Warning will definitely be it. I didn't listen to it until about two years after it was released when I was getting into the beginning stages of becoming a Green Day fan haha. Probably my favorite song of this album is "Waiting" although, both my GDC username and my URL for Tumblr is from "Church on Sunday" which is another favorite of mine too. I would also pay so much to hear it front to back live and possibly be a puddle of mess in the process of hearing it.
Anyways for all of you guys reading this: Is Warning one of your favorite albums? Did you listen to it when it was first released or did you experience it a few years after the fact? Favorite song? Favorite line or lyrics? Do you wish Green Day should play more songs from the album live even though in the last years they have played "Minority", "Macy's Day Parade", and recently "Waiting" in the later leg of the 99 Revolutions Tour? Would it be an album you would like to hear live front to back? What's your opinion on it in a general perspective?
Let's take today to listen to this album once or twice or how many times you would like and appreciate the record for what it truly is.
