Serving as the perfect companion compilation to 2001's INTERNATIONAL SUPERHITS! collection, SHENANIGANS delivers an assortment of rarities, B-sides, covers, and previously unreleased material. Throughout this 14-track anthology, it's easy to hear how Green Day was able to successfully make the transition from scruffy skate-punks to unofficial heads of the nouveau-punk movement that became the mainstream in the mid-'90s. Staccato riffs, hooks aplenty, and lots of harmonizing are just part of the engine that drives cuts like the thunderous "Suffocate," the relentlessly driving "I Want To Be On T.V." and the pogo-worthy workout that is the previously unreleased "Ha Ha You're Dead."
Surprises include the ambling pop of "On The Wagon," sterling surf instrumental "Espionage," and spot-on covers of the Ramones (a wildly infectious "Outsider") and The Kinks (a worthy "Tired Of Waiting For You"). SHENANIGANS reinforces Green Day's rep for creating quality pop-punk. This collection of odds and sods could easily pass as any other group's A list canon.
