    Warning is the sound of three men growing old far too gracefully.

    A really great, under-appreciated album. This has to be their most experimental album, but that's something a band needs. It has four greatA really great, under-appreciated album. This has to be their most experimental album, but that's something a band needs. It has four great and even amazing singles; 'Warning', the title track, being the weakest, yet still being a blast to listen to. There's 'Waiting' which is one of the most underrated singles ever by Green Day, and one of the best. 'Minority' is the only song that gets attention on this album, which is understandable, as it's one of the best songs with its catchy chorus and great lyrics. Then Macy's Day Parade, which, I feel it the best song on this album, right in front of Minority. It features a bit of a folk element that works perfectly. 'Hold On' is a overlooked song which uses a harmonica. It may sound on paper that a harmonica and Green Day wouldn't work... but it just does.
    Favourites: Macy's Day Parade, Minority
    Least Favourites: Jackass, Fashion Victim (although they're quite solid songs)

    This shouldn't be your first Green Day album, but saying that; don't ignore this album. You'll regret it.
