Green Day

Nimrod (25th Anniversary Edition)

Release: 27-01-2023 | Label: WMG / Warner Music

Indie Only Silver Vinyl

Five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning band Green Day celebrates the 25th Anniversary of their triple platinum, fifth album ‘Nimrod’ with a 25th Anniversary Edition box set including the original album, one disc of previously unreleased demos, and a live set from Philadelphia’s Electric Factory recorded on November 14, 1997 one month after Nimrod’s release. The 20-song live set includes several songs from Nimrod, plus fan favorites from their previous albums and singles. The 14 track demos disc includes two unreleased Green Day songs (“You Irritate Me” (OUT NOW) and “Tre Polka”, plus a cover of the classic Elvis Costello song “Alison” (previously unreleased).

Nimrod was originally released on October 14 1997. The Billboard Top 10 LP was driven by the hit singles “Hitchin’ A Ride”, “Redundant”, “Nice Guys Finish Last” and “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” the latter of which has sold 5 million copies in the US alone.  The song was written as a spiteful ballad and has evolved into the soundtrack of everyone’s seminal life moments; even being featured in the Seinfeld series finale.  The album certified triple platinum in the US and has been certified multi-platinum, platinum or gold in several other countries, including the UK, Japan, Canada, Australia and Spain.  In retrospect, KERRANG! asserted, “If Dookie was the album that put the band on centre stage, Nimrod was a multifaceted spreading of wings that saw them begin to master what to do now they were there,” and Alternative Press cited it as “a game-changer.”

The vinyl box comes with a 20 page, 12” x 12” book, poster, cloth patch, exclusive slip-mat and commemorative back-stage pass. The 3 CD box set includes booklet, cloth patch and commemorative back-stage pass.
