Green Day: Uno!

A black-and-white cutout of Billie Joe Armstrong's head, with his eyes crossed-out with pink X's, on a geometric, neon electric green background. The word

2012

Uno! showed a return to a more straightforward punk style album after Green Day’s previous two “Rock-Opera” albums; (American Idiot 2004) and (21st Century Breakdown 2009). While some fans thought this album to be to “poppy”, others liked it for its fun, stripped down punk sound, and sense of youth. The album definitely has high energy and plays well from start to finish filled with moments of love (Stay the Night, Fell For You and Oh Love), moments of angst (Let Yourself Go, Kill The DJ, and Troublemaker), and an overall flow that works well both in sound and subject matter.
