Best Songs From Green Day's Nimrod

These are the ten greatest songs from Green Day's fifth studio album, Nimrod.

The Top Ten

1 Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)

It's not something expected from Green Day of all bands but it's a great song, and is by far the best song on this album followed by Redundant, Hitchin a Ride and Prothstetic Head. One of my favourite songs to play on acoustic guitar.

This song is a masterpiece of music and it's the most punk thing Green day could have done to separate themselves from their past

Great song! Reminds ne of the "American Pie original movie"Takes me back about 20 years ago and life was so much simpler!

Definitely the best song I've ever heard, or at least the leading on the list of my top ten. :) good riddance.

2 Hitchin' a Ride

In my opinion, the best song ever!

It’s straightforward punk music where each instrument has their part

I Love this song very much. Because it's song's means very good maybe best for me. YEah

MUCH better than Good Riddance. Good Riddance is overrated, listen to the 2nd half of this song. - FOB20

3 Redundant

Redundant is better than Scattered

The lyrics decribes love so perfectly.

It deserves the place it's in right now good songs and whoever says good riddance is overrated shut up you have no sense of music then

Hitchin a ride is just to brutal this is calm and soothing this deserves second

4 Scattered

Vocals are so beautiful that for some reason, I almost cry when listening to it.


Should've been the single instead of Redundant

If this was a single, it would get the appreciation that it most definitely deserves. A heartfelt, upbeat punk love song, Scattered is truly great. - RestlessHeartGrenade

6 King for a Day

This is the epitome of what Nimrod is.

This should be higher. Has anyone SEEN the videos of it live? And besides, it's a good message for young people that are confused about their sexual identity as it's a very open and fun track.

Best song my GB ever! Although it talks about sex and lingerie it's awesome, and the beat is amazingly different from their other songs.

7 The Grouch

This is a great song and also does anyone notice how it kind of sounds like 867-5309?

I bet nobody likes this song because of all of the swears. Nonetheless, I personally think it's a really great melody and the lyrics are true... I had a young and optimistic point of view... It reminds me how their's never any youth to be wasted.

Very catchy beat. It's so underrated! I dot get it people think uptight is such a good song either, but I'm not dissing peeps opinions

Perfectly captures the anger of a generation.

9 Prosthetic Head

What a good way to finish an album

So good though

How can this masterpiece be so low on this list! It's amazing! The riff, the lyrics, the meaning... Maybe not the best but at least top 5

This is better than the majority I of the album except maybe the first three or four songs on the album

10 Walking Alone

Best song after Good Riddance... Rocking vocals, rocking guitar riffs and harmonica... Love this song... Green Day ROCKS...

Simple, shows a meaning to anyone who looks for it. Powerful lyrics and an all around great song.

It have to be on the place of Scattered such a mind-blasting song I have ever heard by Green Day..

This is with scattered is totally the best songs on this album NIMROD BY Green Day...
