    Green Day have unveiled a new box set to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their fifth album, Nimrod.

    Nimrod 25 – 25th Anniversary Edition contains the 1997 LP along with a compilation of demos and a live recording from a headlining show at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory on November 14th, 1997, one month after the album’s release. The 14-track demo set features early takes of album cuts like “Nice Guys Finish Last” and “Walking Alone” as well as unreleased songs like “Tre Polka” and “You Irritate Me” and a cover of Elvis Costello’s “Alison.”

    Due out on January 27th, the box set is available as a 3xCD or 5xLP collection. The vinyl package will come with either a black or silver vinyl, 20-page book, poster, cloth patch, exclusive slip-mat, and commemorative back-stage pass. In addition, Green Day are releasing exclusive merchandise from the Nimrod era, including a vintage t-shirt, via the band’s website.


    Nimrod was largely left off the setlist for a pre-Lollapalooza club show that saw the band revive several live rarities from early albums like Insomniac and Warning. After a summer of headlining appearances including Lollapalooza 2022, Green Day have already been tapped to lead 2023 festival lineups like Las Vegas’ When We Were Young. Grab seats to all of the band’s upcoming shows here.
