''nimrod.'' is the fifth album by American punk rock band Music/GreenDay, released in October 1997. After the release of ''Music/{{Insomniac}}'' (1995), which was seen as a critical and commercial disappointment compared to their breakthrough major-label debut ''Music/{{Dookie}}'' (1994), the band embarked on a world tour for the album that had the trio playing sports arenas (as opposed to their usual small clubs) and spending uncomfortable amounts of time away from family. This homesickness led the band to cancel the late 1996 European leg of the tour to finally spend time at home.

This homesickness led the band to cancel the late 1996 European leg of the tour to finally spend time at home.

In the wake of the cancellation, the band continued to write and had produced over 36 new songs come the start of 1997. ''Nimrod'' was made over a four-month span in the intent of being a collection of standalone songs instead of one cohesive album, since the band felt like they had driven their generic ThreeChordsAndTheTruth song structure into the ground. As a result, the album is easily the [[GenreRoulette most experimental and diverse output]] in the band's discography, and perhaps even one of the most kaleidoscopic albums in the punk genre.

''Nimrod'' received generally positive reviews, with critics applauding the band's musical forays, great melodies, and deeper songwriting. It has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
