99.1 PLR Perfect Album: Green Day ‘Dookie’

99.1 PLR Perfect Album: Green Day ‘Dookie’

Green Day was a San Francisco punk band that put out two records on the independent Lookout label, but in 1994 they released their major label debut and a record that made punk rock the most popular sound in the country. An album full of Generation X problems, dirty jokes and Ramones-style riffs, Dookie went on to sell 10 million copies and move Green Day from a club act to stealing the show at Woodstock ’94. The album gave us stoner anthem “Longview” and massive pop punk hit “When I Come Around”.

Fun Fact: Every member of the band has a tattoo that says EBPM. It stays for East Bay Punk Mafia.
