"Dookie" Turns 20 Tomorrow

Posted by - 10:47 AM on 01/31/14
Green Day's Dookie turns 20 tomorrow. Our own Thomas Nassiff puts a retrospective look on arguably the most influential pop-punk record of all time. Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard, and New Found Glory and others weighed in with their own opinions on the matter. Reflect on the album in the replies.

Soupy, you're not alone I came to the same conclusion at that age of what a shrink and a whore were based on Basket Case.

Nice article. Will always love this album. Was in the "cool" teacher's classroom before class in middle school and someone had it jamming. This band started it all for me. Living now in the East Bay, it's crazy to think of what the scene must have been like in its hey day.

green day is pretty awful now, but I'd be lying if Kerplunk, Dookie, Insomniac and Nimrod didn't get me into punk rock

First album I ever learned to play on drums from beginning to end. I went through about three computer desk chairs before my parents finally relented and bought me a kit. Love this record.
