OK, if you know of Green Day before American Idiot its because of this record, If you don't own, for £2.99 its the sale of the century, for £9.99 its still a bargin.
this album have shifted over 15 million copies. Each track is listenable, packed with classics, almost every song can stand the test of time... with catchy hooks, sensational bass and near perfect drums, green day really came into their own with this record
it was the bands debut on major label warners subsiduary label reprise... after two early albums, one with potential and one showing that potential.
dookie is a step further with anthens that have lasted over 10 years at parties, rock clubs, live shows and more...
basketcase - the hit that most will still consider green days greatest song.
when i come around - my personal favourite song of all time
long view - the song of a generation bored of everything expressed though one voice and one fantastic series of lyrics floating over the masterpiece bassline from the fingers of mike dirnt
more classics that you can't sit still too, air guitar/drums are side effects of this contagious record, you will sing, dance and smile with dookie.
argueablly this is one of the top 100 records of the last 50 years.
a must own!
