20th Anniversary Limited Edition Vinyl Reissue Of Green Day's Seminal 1997 Album, 'Nimrod!'

Recorded at Conway Studios in Los Angeles, the album was written with the intent of creating a set of stand-alone songs as opposed to a cohesive album, and peaked at number ten on the Billboard U.S. charts.

The album yielded the acoustic hit "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)"

Retrospectively, Nimrod is noted for its musical diversity and experimentation. It contains elements of folk, surf rock, and ska; the lyrical themes discussed on the record include maturity, personal reflection, and fatherhood

Nimrod (stylized as nimrod.) is the fifth studio album by American rock band Green Day, released on October 14, 1997 by Reprise Records. The band began work on the album in the wake of the cancellation of a European tour after the release of their previous album Insomniac (1995). Recorded at Conway Recording Studios in Los Angeles, the album was written with the intent of creating a set of standalone songs as opposed to a cohesive album. Retrospectively, Nimrod is noted for its musical diversity and experimentation, containing elements of folk, surf rock, and ska. Lyrical themes discussed include maturity, personal reflection, and fatherhood.

The album peaked at number ten on the Billboard U.S. charts and was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The record was also certified triple platinum in Australia and double platinum in Canada. Upon release, Nimrod received generally positive reviews from critics, who praised Armstrong's songwriting. The album yielded the acoustic hit "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)", which appeared in numerous pop culture events, including the series finale of the sitcom Seinfeld in 1998. To promote the album, Green Day embarked on an extensive touring schedule. The album was also reissued on vinyl on June 16, 2009. The album was released in Europe as an HDCD. The songs "Nice Guys Finish Last", "Hitchin' a Ride", and "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" are featured in the video game Green Day: Rock Band.
