  1. Awesome As Fuck captures the intensity of a live Green Day show while giving you a nostalgic throwback into what made you fall in love with this band in the first place.

    Awesome As F**k doesn't repeat much from its predecessor, nor does it lean too heavily on 2009's 21st Century Breakdown, which provides only five of Awesome's 17 tracks. Instead, this album is something of a victory lap, as Green Day plays its most popular songs-and a few deep cuts-in front of huge, roaring crowds.

    As it stands, Awesome as F**k is a good representation of Green Day today.

    Green Day does its best to trap both the manic and the melodic energy of the big venue tour it undertook for "21st Century Breakdown" on Awesome as (Expletive).

    The title says a lot about the tongue-tied delight of a great rock show, and Green Day played plenty of 'em on their last tour. This set is a contagious account of the power-fun streak that still runs through the band even after the two punk operas.

    Not one for the casual fans, but more than enough to remember the good times.

It has a great set list made up of some of Green Day's newer songs & some of the greatest older Green Day songs. If you're gonna buy this anywhere, make sure it includes the bonus tracks because hearing "Christie Road" once again & with a little kick of newer Green Day styling was simply amazing. Full Review »
