Green Day's seminal 1997 album, "Nimrod," will receive a 20th anniversary limited edition vinyl reissue on Oct. 13 on Reprise Records.
The reissue will be available in two configurations, with both including double 140-gram bright yellow vinyl. Click HERE to see details on each configuration.
Originally released on Oct. 14, 1997, through Reprise Records, "Nimrod" was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Rob Cavallo. The critically acclaimed album debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 and has since sold more than 2 million copies and has been certified double platinum by the RIAA. The album yielded the acoustic hit "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)," which became a massive hit around the world and soundtracked the finales of several high-profile television series, most notably "Seinfeld."
Upon the album's release, the Los Angeles Times hailed: "Though Green Day clings resolutely to some powerful punk tenets - a clean-burning musical attack fueled by protracted teen angst and guided by a 'loser' outlook - the musicians' knack for whipping up incandescent pop songs transcends punk and makes them winners."
Green Day is currently on the second U.S. leg of their "Revolution Radio" world tour. The band performs Saturday, Aug. 26, at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center.
