Green Day Albums, Ranked Worst to Best

No single band has done more to bring punk into the mainstream than Green Day, who’ll be recognized for this achievement in a few weeks when they’re inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. But where to start on a discography that reaches back to their 1990 indie debut 39/Smooth?

Our sister site Diffuser has sorted through every release, from early items like 1992’s Kerplunk – which saw Tre Cool solidify Green Day’s lineup alongside Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt – through to signature triumphs, like 1994’s Dookie and American Idiot, from a decade later.

Remember when Green Day released a trio of albums in quick succession called ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!, between September and December 2012? Which one comes in closer to numero uno? How does 2009’s 21st Century Breakdown, the band’s most recent chart-topping album, shape up?
