℗ 1994 Reprise Records
“Dookie” is the most successful Green Day album. It has the most loved songs along with the album “American Idiot” and has 5 songs that were featured in “God’s Favorite Band,” the most of any of their albums. There is no way you haven’t heard “Basket Case” or “When I Come Around” because they are played on the radio literally all the time. Really can’t judge that. “Longview” has the greatest bass line you could probably ever hear. “She” also has an impressive bass line loved by me. Songs like “Burnout,” “Having A Blast” and “Sassafras Roots” are too underrated, and I really love them, but my favorite song on the album is “Welcome To Paradise,” which was a remade version from their previous album “Kerplunk,” but I have a different favorite song for that album which is “One Of My Lies.” So you should check this album out and buy it. It’s too good! 4/5.
I’m an old punk fan - (actually an old hippie who went punk in the ‘70s). I’ve loved punk since I first heard it, and Green Day brought a refreshing new series of albums for me to listen to. I wasn’t into them at first, though I’d seen them on MTV, and started with American Idiot. My kids said “no, mom, you have to listen to Dookie”! With all 3 recommding this album, I had to get it. It’s got more of the raw punk sound than their later albums, which are polished and tending more towards pop punk and just pop rock. Anyone who loves punk will love this album.
Green Day is my second favorite band, but one thing that I don’t like is that with iTunes Store and pandora say that fod (F*** off and die) is not explicit. It is explicit. Please change this so little kids don’t get mixed up and listen to songs with cuss words.
Green Day has been my number one favorite band since I was five, when American idiot came out. This was the second album I ever got of their’s. Basket Case is probably my favorite song from this. I wish iTunes would release the Dookie Demos album.
Even if I had the guts, I still was able to redeem my gift card for money and I finally have the song downloaded. Oh, and... LOL! I am like almost a teenager and my mom approved my balance for this and there! I am finally done for it all! But apple I still have a problem you will have to find on your main website before updating my iPhone! The problem can be found there! So anyways, THANK YOU SO MUCH GREEN DAY FOR MAKING SUCH A SONG!
Dookie is almost twenty five effing years old. It can vote. It can buy alcohol, it should be thinking about health insurance. AND IT STILL ROCKS. If you don’t buy this album, you’re a fool.
If you are a green day fan then the album summary they wrote will make you laugh since they said it was a 'pop punk' album and messed up song titles like by doing things like saying Long View and Emenius 'Sleeping'.
This along with The Wall, Mothership, and Counting Crows, and Speak Now are one of the few albums where I like/love every single song on it. Brings back wonderful Middle/high school memories.
i'm only 13 and ik just about every word in every song on at least 3 albums. This band is my favorite of all time! I've even been to one of their concerts! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NOT ONLY THIS ALBUM BUT THE BAND IN GENERAL. ❤️❤️
One of the all time best albums by a band to be created.... would recommend for anyone who wants to try listening to Green Day, cause this will totally get u hooked. Some great songs in this album are all of them except She.... I don't like She, no offense to anyone who does like it, I just don't like it. I also recommend Nimrod, that's also a great album
I don't like many bands old albums, but this one is perfect. Has great songs like "When I Come Around", "Longview", "Basket Case", and my all time favorite Green Day song "Welcome to Paradise". If your a Green Day fan, you should totally buy.
Even though i have been playing this disc for years and hear them on the radio, i know this was a smash album and holds the test of time today, with killer song after song. My challenge now: Can any band make a punk CD who tops it?
i began raiding my dad's cd collection a couple years ago and this was the first one i took, i thought, i like green day from all the songs my dad frequently play, i should listen to this, i'll probably like it. and now i'm here today obsessed with everything green day, but also i think it's because my last name is also Armstrong.
