Green Day | God’s Favorite Band
The last time Green Day released a greatest hits album, 2001’s ‘Superhits!’, things were looking a little shaky. ‘Warning’, from the year before, was their first LP since signing to a major label without multi-platinum sales figures. The wave of success that had followed their breakout ‘Dookie’ was crashing. And the trio hadn’t yet released ‘American Idiot’, the decade-defining record that would become not just their ‘Sgt Peppers’ or ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’, but a hugely successful Broadway musical and a major reason their career didn’t go the way of The Offspring.
