This DVD features live and studio performances by Green Day, rare interviews, and a host of other features. Runtime: 1 hour, 8 minutes. It actually contains clips of Green Day music videos relevant to each discussion topic, instead of whatever grainy live footage producers of docs like these normally lean on. The interviewees are also pretty relevant names.

Warning (stylized as Warning:) is the sixth studio album by American rock band Green Day, released on October 3, 2000 by Reprise Records. Building upon its predecessor Nimrod (1997), it eschewed the band's trademark punk rock sound and incorporated acoustic elements and pop and folk styles. Lyrically, the album contains more optimistic and inspirational themes in comparison to the band's earlier releases
18. 12. When I come around. What is surprising though is that Green Day are steadily approaching a second million-selling album. 1994's Dookie, which includes the singles Basket Case, Welcome To Paradise and When I Come Around, has sold 959,000 copies despite only peaking at Number 13 on the Official Chart. Rounding off the Top 3 is their 2001 retrospective International Superhits.
In 1995, I would have put money on Jay Farrar having a more celebrated post-Uncle Tupelo career than Jeff Tweedy. After the back-to-back releases of Wilco's lackluster . and Son Volt's lived-in Trace, Farrar seemed destined for greatness, and Tweedy destined for obscurity. A few years later, I saw how wrong I was: It wasn't simply that Being There was that great a follow-up, but that Straightaways was such a fatally dull second album. Now, amid a softening nostalgia for the mini-movement Uncle Tupelo helped define and plans for a new Son Volt album this summer, Rhino is issuing A Retrospective: 1995-2000. Making absolutely no promise of definitiveness, the title says it all: It's 20 tracks culled from the band's three albums, along with a handful of covers and live takes.
In 2000, Green Day released Warning, an album that had types of songs that Nimrod did. Though the Warning made the hit "Minority" and a smaller hit with "Warning", some observers thought that the band was losing popularity. Warning was certified gold by the RIAA. Most of their songs are fast and under the average song length of four minutes (4:00), though some of their songs run on longer such as "Jesus of Suburbia" which runs for nine minutes. Billie Joe Armstrong said that some of his biggest influences are alternative rock bands Husker Dü and The Replacements. Armstrong's lyrics mostly describe alienation, hysteria, girls, growing up, and what happens to someone if they take drugs.
