Product Description

Certified at 10 million units by the RIAA. (2/01)

Take one part Ramones, one part Buzzcocks, and one part Husker Du, and you've got the basic foundation of Green Day, a punky, witty, melodic San Francisco Bay area trio who became overnight stars in 1994 when this album, their third overall release and major label debut, catapulted them to the top of the pop charts. Led by guitarist/vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong and their secret weapon, powerhouse drummer Tre Cool, Green Day put '70s and '80s punk in a compact '90s package with songs like "Longview," "Basket Case," "Pulling Teeth," and the hit semi-ballad, "When I Come Around." One the few modern alternative rock bands with a bona fide sense of humor. --Billy Altman

I remember the day I bought this album. I was thirteen years of age, and the year was 1994. It was the fifth CD I've "ever" bought, and it totally spun my musical tastes into high gear, driving me to discover a world that I had never been exposed to. Along with Offspring "Smash," this was the first album I've ever bought that I felt I could identify with on a personal level. This album was the cure for boredom in the lifeless suburb I grew up in. My buddies and I would just sit around listening to this album for hours on end; everybody had it, no wonder it sold over 14 million copies.

"Dookie" was a case of accidental success, much like Nirvana's "Nevermind". The latter could be thanked for Green Day's success in many ways. Green Day hit at the right time, with the right sound. Reviving punk rock isn't the easiest task, but Green Day made it seem like child's play. At their core, the California based punk rock trio were masters at reviving the fast and catchy three-chord punk tunes that everyone's grown to love. Even though Green Day would never out sell "Dookie," their influence has reached the masses. These guys opened the door for a revival of punk metal, third wave ska and pop-punk. I'd venture to say that Green Day is the most influential band to come along in the mid nineties, second only to Nirvana.

It's a good thing pop music was better back then, than it is now; because it makes my stomach turn to hear good music mixed up with garbage. But Green Day was in good company back in 1994 (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Live, Stone Temple Pilots, Beastie Boys, The Offspring, etc.). Undoubtedly, everyone remembers "Longview," "Basket Case," and "When I Come Around". Those songs and videos were played around the clock on the radio and MTV, earning them diamond status.

I see the cynical 1990s producing a "Generation X Holy Trinity" of angst-ridden rock. These three albums include Nirvana's "Nevermind," Nine Inch Nails "The Downward Spiral," and Green Day's "Dookie." These albums are the voice of teen and post-teen frustration.

While "Nevermind" was lyrically abstract and "The Downward Spiral" was more direct-both albums depicted themes of desperation and chaos. In contrast, although quite cynical, "Dookie" is a far more upbeat album. "Dookie" shares themes similar with the other two albums; nihilism, lethargy, entrapment, and hopelessness, but it has one thing that the other two albums lack-a sense of humor. The songs are mostly tongue-in-cheek. The same message is conveyed, but in a far more juvenile, albeit sincere tone.

Although "Dookie" was the band's breakthrough smash, it was actually the bands third album, following "1039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours" (1990, 1991) (a combined album and EP) and "Kurplunk" (1992). By the release of "Dookie," the band had perfected its pop/punk formula. Although it didn't start with Green Day, they brought popish assessable punk to the mainstream. Many other bands throughout the 90s/00s used/use "Dookie" as a blueprint for their inspiration.

Although singer/guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong's songs are straight-forward and simple, they are extremely infectious. These songs have an intense vitality, but are also highly melodic. Virtually every song on "Dookie" could have been released as a single. Although the songs sound similar, the album never gets redundant, because the album is well-paced with a good mix of fast and mid-tempo compositions. Drummer Tre Cool and Bassist Mike Dirnt provide an ample and stellar rhythm section.

i was a little skeptical about getting this album, because i was rather partial to Insomniac, which is a lot harder and angrier compared to Dookie. But i was pleasently surprised. though not as hard, it's full of what i like to call classic Green Day.

1) Burnout- Great song, i liked the drum part towards the end.
2) Having a Blast- my favorite song on the album, strong, angry, driving
3) Chump- i liked this one too. i don't mind the huge instrumental towards the end. it sounds cool.
4) Longview- very popular, but not my favorite. i liked the bass part
5) Welcome to Paradise- i honestly like the Kerplunk version better, but thats just me
6) Pulling Teeth- great lyrics, love this one
7) Basketcase- the classic. these lyrics are awesome
8) She- good song. good bass
9) Sassafras Roots- one of my favorites, Billie muses "so why are you alone wasting your time? you could be with ME wasting your time..."
10) When I Come Around- very true, wise song. some people consider it a ballad, but they're stupid. this is no ballad.
11) Coming Clean- a little short, but nevertheless true and timeless
12) Emenius Sleepus- really liked this one. awesome guitar part.
13) In the End- fast paced song about a guy apathetically mourning the loss of his girl to her own selfish tendencies. good song.
14) F.O.D.- one of the best on the album. starts out as an acoustic ballad and morphs into a hard angry rock song (F.O.D stands for 'F*ck Off and Die')
(**) "All By Myself"- okay, let's just say the first time i heard this, my first though was: 'what the HECK was that?!'

If you a fan of Green Day, get this cd. but don't forget to check out they're early stuff, Kerplunk and 1039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hour and such. you won't be disappointed.

The sex pistols and bands like them are real punk, why do people these...
The Offspring is a pop band??? Well, maybe more so now, but listen to their albums Smash and before and you'll see how much of an idiot you are. I agree with you on most of the other bands, but Green Day is one of the best modern punk bands around. Maybe they aren't hardcore like you would... Read More

wat is the best greenday album i can get with no curses?!?!
Warning is probably the "cleanest" of the bunch, and there's always the Foxboro Hot Tubs side project.

take this pop junk off the punk rock listings and give real punk rock...
Don't feed the troll...he's been going on a rampage across all of these pop punk sites while trying to co-erce people into Sex Pistols. This user really needs to be banned though.
