Green Day Confirm 20th Anniversary Reissue Of Nimrod
We all love an anniversary. Well, up to a point – when the big numbers start looming on the horizon, shit. But 20? Twenty is a good number. And that’s how old Green Day’s album Nimrod will be when it celebrates its birthday on October 14.
To mark the double-decade, the trio’s fifth studio LP will get a fancy reissue, on limited-edition yellow vinyl. It comes out through Reprise on October 13 – and is actually available in two separate versions.
Twenty-five bucks gets you the album on double LP – the fourth side is etched. While for 35, you get a t‑shirt thrown in, too. Check out (and maybe pre-order) these bundles here.
The LPs are all individually numbered because, as we were just saying, numbers are cool. And, again, with limited-run records: the smaller, the better.
Nimrod was the album that gave us Hitchin’ A Ride, Redundant, Nice Guys Finish Last and Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) as singles – though the latter was previously a b‑side to the Brain Stew/Jaded single. (I know, I’ve got a copy in the loft.) Good Riddance sold over two and a half million copies as a digital download, making it one of Green Day’s biggest-ever hits. Refresh your memory, below.
In the past decade, streaming has become synonymous with music fandom and consumption. But commercially it’s still an unequal playing field, to the detriment of our favourite rock bands…
Lamb Of God and FEVER 333’s Jason Aalon Butler have teamed up for a live quarantine cover of Bad Brains’ I Against I.
