14th Anniversary Of Green Day's 'Dookie'...

Just thought I'd start a thread commemorating the 14th anniversary of Green Day's 'Dookie' It was released on February 1st, 1994, and was one of the biggest records of the 90s.

Do you have the time
to listen to me whine
about nothing and everything
all at once?
I am one of those
melodramtic fools
neurotic to the bone
no doubt about it


no time to search the world around
'cause you know where I'll be found
oh when I come around


Some call it the slums
Some call it nice
I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home
Welcome to paradise


get it straight:
you're just a fuck
i can't explain it cause i think you suck
i'm taking pride in telling you to fuck off and die


Twiddle my thumbs just for a bit
I'm sick of all the same old shit
In a house with unlocked doors
And I'm fucking lazy
Bite my lip and close my eyes
Take me away to paradise
I'm so damn bored I'm going blind !!!
And I smell like shit


etc

A few very good songs, a ton of filler, extremely repetitive.

American Idiot is better or, at the very least, more creative.

Dookie was obviously their breakthrough and considered their best album for a long time.

American Idiot changed that, though.

I love Greenday in a guilty, high schoolish kinda way. Kind of like No Doubt.

Wow, they've come so far...

I hated this album, sounded so juvenile, even the title

But have liked some of their most recent stuff...

They're one of those bands I'll listen to on the radio, but have never bought any of their albums. I almost bought American Idiot, but then forgot.

Same here, for the most part. Billy Joe Armstrong was an awful singer back then.

I've liked some of their songs over the years and I only have one album of theirs—American Idiot. That's a solid album from start to finish and I consider it one of the best albums of 2004.

It's perhaps the most telling album title of all time.
