Green Day preview expanded Nimrod 25th anniversary reissue

Green Day are streaming audio of a previously-unreleased demo of “You Irritate Me”, as the first preview to a series of expanded 25th anniversary editions of their 1997 album, “Nimrod.”

Due January 27 in 5-CD, 3-LP and digital sets, the 2023 release will include the original album, one disc of previously unreleased “Nimrod” demos, and a live set from Philadelphia recorded one month after the album was released.

The 14 track demos disc includes two unreleased Green Day tracks (“You Irritate Me” and “Tre Polka”), plus an unreleased cover of the classic Elvis Costello song “Allison”.

The live album was recorded at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia on November 14, 1997, featuring a 20-song set that includes several songs from “Nimrod”, plus fan favorites from their previous albums and singles.

“BIG anniversary!! Nimrod is 25 years old,” says the group. “Already?? Where has the time gone?!”

The band’s fifth studio album was driven by the hit singles “Hitchin’ A Ride”, “Redundant”, “Nice Guys Finish Last” and “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” the latter of which has sold 5 million copies in the US alone; the album has sold over 3 million copies in the US (triple platinum) and has been certified multi-platinum, platinum, or gold in several other countries, including the UK, Japan, Canada, Australia, and Spain.

Green Day will next be seen appearing at the F1 US Grand Prix at Circuit of The Americas in Austin, TX on October 21.
