Green Day: Insomniac (1995)

green day insomniacBy Scott Goldfine

Green Day, Generation X’s favorite trio of angst-ridden rowdies, remains locked into their simple, direct and catchy brand of punk rock on their fourth album, “Insomniac.” Hot on the heels of the band’s shockingly successful, multiplatinum “Dookie,” this 14-song collection assaults the listener with short bursts of Ramones-meet-the-Who precision.

Ideal for those who find Nirvana too heavy.
