Green Day

Kerplunk (Limited 180g Vinyl with 7" Single)

Reprise / Wea 517784.1

Released on March 24, 2009

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

Green Day's second full album was the perfect dry run for the band's later assault on the mainstream, containing both more variety and more flat-out smashes than previous releases had shown. With Tre Cool now firmly in place as the drummer, the lineup was at last settled, and it turned out Cool and Mike Dirnt were a perfect rhythm section, with the former showing a bit more flash and ability than John Kiftmeyer did. Together the two throw in a variety of guitarless breaks that would later help to define the band's sound for many - warm and never letting the beat go. As for Billie Joe Armstrong, his puppy-dog delivery and eternal switching between snotty humor and sudden sorrrow was better than ever, as were his instantly memorable riffs. The metal-strength chug that always informed the band's best work isn't absent either - check out Armstrong's opening riffing on "Christie Road." the whole thing starts with a note-perfect bang - "2000 Light Years Away" is the absolute highlight of the group's premajor-label days, with a great chorus and classic yearning lyrics. It got buried in the wave of Dookie's success a bit, but one other number didn't - "Welcome to Paradise," also a standout on that album, appears here in it's original form. Rob Cavallo punched up the radio-friendly sound on the latter take, but even here it's a treat and a half - quick, rampaging, and once again with a great stop-start chorus to spare. This vinyl version is on pressed on 180 gram vinyl.

I finally got around to buying this back in August and it's a really great re-issue. At first the price seemed a little steep but, in the end, it was worth the money.

The 7" that comes with it is awesome and it has 4 songs on it. I recommend this to anyone who loves Green Day and Kerplunk! as much as I do.

Green Day saved my life! JK. I bought 39/Smooth, Kerplunk, Dookie, and Insomniac over a decade ago, and now again this year. They aren't the same band now, but back in the day, they helped me find my ultimate passion: music. I actually bought these albums just to put on my wall and not open, but I'm wondering what the 7"s look like...

This is, as far as I'm concerned, the only Green Day release that will ever matter. If you haven't memorized the lyrics to Who Wrote Holden Caulfield? then you should probably go ask someone to kick you in the face. Just do it nicely, they may have had a bad day.
