    It’s strange because I never really got into Kerplunk. I loved 1,039/smoothed Out Slappy Hours and then I was blown away by Dookie. I even liked American Idiot. But damn, their new album sucks ass!

    I thought Kerplunk! was perfect, cause again, it was the last solid effort before all the slicksters moved in. It’s also another one fo those albums, that newer Green Day fans arent even aware of…Quite sad actually, but thats why we do this…
