Remastered 25th Anniversary Vinyl 2LP (with D-Side Etching) Reissue featuring Eight Rare or Never Previously Released Live Tracks Plus Cover Art Printed on Prismatic Silver Foil!
Insomniac is finally old enough to rent a car (or whatever else you can do when you're 25, we're not lawyers) so Green Day remastered it to celebrate, and they're throwing in some bonus goodies to boot! This 25th anniversary double vinyl reissue includes a bonus LP (with etched B-side) featuring eight rare or never previously released live tracks from the Prague stop of the Insomniac world tour on March 26, 1996 plus cover art printed on prismatic silver foil.
The Berkeley pop-punks' 1995 album served as the band's highly anticipated fourth release overall and follow-up to their breakthrough major label debut Dookie from the year prior. With Insomniac the group took everything that was great about its predecessor, i.e. its simplicity, hooks, lack of pretension and disdain for authority, and upped the ante with darker motifs and heavier songs. It resulted in yet another quality collection of uncompromising punk rock with breakneck drumming, pounding bass, catchy riffs and snot-nosed vocals.
The double platinum collection is home to the band's beloved singles "Geek Stink Breath," "Stuck with Me," "Brain Stew," "Jaded" and "Walking Contradiction."
