Dookie, Green Day - The album that jump-started the Nineties punk-pop revival. The California trio Green Day sold plenty of tickets and indie records on their own, but nothing they did before or since had the impact of their major-label debut. The skittish Dookie was recorded in little more than three weeks, and singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong blazed through all the vocals in two days. “Right from getting the drum sound, everything seemed to click,” their A&R man Rob Cavallo marveled.

Bruh Greenday is punk!! Dookie is one of the best punk albums of all fucking time. It's has songs about masturbation, mental illness, being a street kid, if that's not fuckin punk then I don't know what is. (Granted I'll admit, they got less punk after that album). Plus yknow, Billie Joe Armstrong helped revive punk in the 90's.

Personally I would agree with you, but I also like all their new stuff too. I mean you talk to most people who like alternative music they will often mention Green Day (specifically American Idiot) being a band that got them into that kind of music. The previous anon seems to think you’re only punk if you listen to the music he has decided is punk, which is completely ridiculous. Punk ain’t about rules, there’s no requirement other than acceptance of others differences.
Anyway yeah Dookie is a fab album 👌

CHECK YOUR LOCAL INDEPENDENT RECORD SHOP THIS SATURDAY FOR OUR LIMITED EDITION Cassette Store Day REISSUE OF Green Day’s EPIC ALBUM “DOOKIE”!!! Find out how at cassettestoreday.us!!! #CSD2015

So today i was grocery shopping with my mom and she had to use the bathroom so i was awkwardly waiting by the cheese for her. Anyway an employee kept looking at me, and i just looked away. He stopped and said to me “dookie right?” I got kinda offended cause i thought he was calling me a piece of shit. So then i said “what?” And he said it again. Then i realized that i was wearing my dookie shirt. And then i said “oh! Yeah!” And he said “great album.” And then he walked away. I’m an idiot!

“I wanted the art work to look really different. I wanted it to represent the East Bay and where we come from, because there’s a lot of artists in the East Bay scene that are just as important as the music. So we talked to Richie Bucher. He did a 7-inch cover for this band called Raooul that I really liked. He’s also been playing in bands in the East Bay for years. There’s pieces of us buried on the album cover. There’s one guy with his camera up in the air taking a picture with a beard. He took pictures of bands every weekend at Gilman’s. The robed character that looks like the Mona Lisa is the woman on the cover of the first Black Sabbath album. AC/DC guitarist Angus Young is in there somewhere too. The graffiti reading "Twisted Dog Sisters” refers to these two girls from Berkeley. I think the guy saying “The fritter, fat boy” was a reference to a local cop.“

-Billie Joe Armstrong on the album art of 1994’s "Dookie”

Happy Anniversary: We don’t want to be melodramatic fools about this, but; it’s been exactly 20 years ago since the very first time Green Day graced our stage.  

Here they are making their first appearance on Late Show with “Basket Case” off of Dookie on June 29th, 1994.
