Shenanigans is the third compilation album by the American punk rock band Green Day. It was released on July 2, 2002 through Reprise Records.

Album Information

Shenanigans peaked at number 27 on the Billboard 200 chart upon its release and has sold 280,000 units as of September 2010. Even though the original cover does not feature a title, several retailers fixed confusion over it by designing a sticker which was plastered on the front. In a September 2009 interview by Fuse on Demand, when asked who designed the cover for the group's eighth studio album 21st Century Breakdown (2009), Billie Joe Armstrong said that Chris Bilheimer designed it as well as the last four album covers. In 2002, Green Day embarked on the Pop Disaster Tour in support of the album; however, no songs from the album were played during any of the performances. This album was supposed to contain a #10 track called "D.U.I (Driving Under the Influence)". "D.U.I" was written by Tré Cool. However, it was removed in later releases of the album. "D.U.I." can be seen in the booklet for the album, but has been sprayed out with black spray paint making it impossible to look at any information about the song.

Shenanigans was issued on vinyl for the first time in the United States on September 15, 2009.
