Essential Listening: Green Day – WFMU, New Jersey, May 28th 1992 – FM Broadcast (CD)

WFMU, New Jersey, May 28th 1992 – FM Broadcast (CD)

Two years shy of Dookie but already banging out "Welcome to Paradise," this is GREEN DAY live for WFMU Radio in New Jersey in their 100% punk rock era. The trio still sounds raw, which is naturally part of the appeal of this performance: they're stumbling toward greatness, occasionally tripping into the transcendent but most often just knocking out these three-chord anthems with invigorating abandon, and that energy makes this mandatory for any Green Day die-hard fan!
