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)

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.

Ironically my least favorite song on nimrod

2 Hitchin' a Ride

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

The solo is AMAZING

One the best Green Day guitar solos hands down!

3 Redundant

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

This song represents my life quite well as I have lost the voice of my young self and growing up. Plus it's a fun to play on guitar as well

Sounds like Dookie-era instruments with 21st century breakdown vibe.

4 Scattered


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

Such a good song, it reminds me a bit of the warning album. Also king for a day should be much higher, at least #2

5 Nice Guys Finish Last

This is my favorite song on the album. I personally think it's better than hitching a ride and redundant

Such a funny music video. Classic

Should be #1

6 King for a Day

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 Uptight
8 The Grouch

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.

I like it lol

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...

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