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. 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
Most of all, Nimrod is Green Day’s best album because of where it found them. It’s still got the scrappy, street-smart songwriting and caustic bar philosopher’s songwriting of Dookie, but there’s also the overpowering confidence that would – eventually – give the world something as ambitious as American Idiot. In hindsight, 1995’s Insomniac – a record where Dookie’s smart nudges and winks to neurosis and angst had turned into a much darker sense of self-loathing and fear – sounds like a band stepping off the fame roller coaster, feeling a bit nervous and a little sick
Green Day:Nimrod (1997). Album by Green Day. Nice Guys Finish Last.
Green Day tried to grow up on their previous album, 1995’s Insomniac, but didn’t seem quite sure how to go about it. The lyrics got nastier, and the characters more depraved, while the music clung stubbornly to the brisk tempos and concise melodies of pop-punk formula. With Nimrod, Armstrong’s juvenile sense of humor is back. On The Grouch, he complains, I’m turning out like my dad, and on the ska romp King for a Day, he imagines life as a drag queen.
