I like this record for several reasons:

* First: On Nimrod, the band started to "experiment" with the Green Day sound but Warning was the "Maximum expression" about it at that time. A new Green Day sound, so different to Dookie or Insomniac. More acoustic, less electric, more ideas, more instruments, etc.

* Second: The year it was release (2000) every pop punk band were "cloning" the "dookie sound". Green Day could do the same, but they had the balls to do SOMETHING DIFFERENT. Maybe it wasn't the right time or just it wasn't expected for the fans at that time.

* Third: Nimrod was the record in which has more serious issues about being adult, but Warning included some "social/political" statements

* Fourth: Good tour, better than AI era at least in my humble opinion.

* I liked the art related in this album.

For those reasons above Warning is in my TOP 3.

I really like this album. I like how they experimented and really showed how they grown musically from the nimrod era-. Waiting is my favourite song from the album. I can really only comment on the album though as I did not live through the era as a green day fan.

Warning will always have a special place in my heart. I thought Green Day had broken up or something after Nimrod and randomly saw the Minority video premiere on MTV after school one day. I remember being super fucking excited, and going to the mall immediately after school to pick it up on the day it came out. Blood Sex and Booze, Church on Sunday, Waiting, Misery . . the songs bring back so many memories. I miss when Green Day shows were just the 3 of them, dressed in the clothes they probably put on when they woke up, just rocking out. There was a lot less talking and a lot more music, and the setlists were great. Warning is probably the most underrated Green Day album, but is without a doubt one of the best. Big fan of the Warning era, that album was the soundtrack to my life at that moment in time.

I love this album. Deadbeat Holiday is probably my favorite. I wouldn't mind if Green Day returned to a more acoustic sound in the future.

I have always loved this album and I never understood why this album is so low on most people's list. My favorite song from it would have to be Deadbeat Holiday.

Yeah, directly taken from "I Should Have Known Better" by The Beatles, but anyway I love it too. :D

Warning is such a great album, I like his fresh sound, his use of many instruments as mandolin, harmonica, accordion,... and I think Mike's backing vocals are at their best. In my opinion, the slightly-overdriven-guitars sound on the Trilogy reminds me of Warning, but on Warning the result is way more successful maybe because there isn't this feeling of lack of power. Besides, I consider "Misery" as one of Green Day's masterpieces.

Some of the best times of my life or had during this era. The best sets I've seen the band play were from 200002. God, I still watch the video from Reading 2001 all the time. Probably my favorite Green Day performance

In a way, it was the end of an era; it was before the coordinated stage attire, before the concept albums (not that I don't love those), before the eyeliner. It was all so simple and fun.

But in some ways, it was also the beginning of an era. This was the album on which Billie really dove into the P-90/Les Paul Junior sound, never to look back. Cuatro had made his first onstage appearances with just a year before.

Warning featured in my opinion some of Mike's finest bass work. Every single song on the record is tied to a specific memory from my high school years.

The months and years leading up to this era were probably the darkest in the their career, as well. It might be the only time they ever came close to breaking up as a band. It was a strange time, but I'm thankful to have been able to experience it.

As someone else said, it's a great albums because as usual Green Day tried doing something else. Billie's lyrics were quite different opposed to anything else they did, and the acoustic guitar and harmonica were awesome. Billie said he needed to learn to play the mandolin for I think Misery. I could be wrong with the song though.

Since everybody is slurping this album like I don't know what, I'll come by and say that I hate this album. Maybe not hate, but really dislike.
