  1. It's fun, to be sure, especially for the fans who are the compilation's target audience, but everything here sounds like the classic definition of B-sides -- good and familiar, but not as good as what made the album.
  2. No acoustic stinkers. No Live And Unrehearsed At K-ROQ radio sessions. No ropy early demos. No remixes. Just Green Day, playing solid, dependable, familiar idiot-savant punk-rock.
  3. 70
    One of the band's most colorful listens.
  4. 40
    A great deal, unfortunately, fall into chugga-lugga tedium. [#9, p.148]
  5. A compilation that never quite jells.

    Bay area punks return with a collection, which will win fans over

    Green Day had enjoyed a massive amount of success during the 1990s,
    particularly with their mainstream debut album "Dookie." During the last few years Green Day had experience a major decline in their career, with their albums " Nimrod" and "Warning" not nearly selling as much copies combined as debut "Dookie."
    Three hit albums later and we have this, the album "Shenanigans which in short is a collection of the bands B-side and covers which where found on their singles.
