Green Day’s Dookie, arguably one of the best punk records of all time, is officially 20 years old today! The generation-defining album was the band’s breakthrough and has since sold over 20 million albums. Dookie remains a classic staple of alternative music; it was punk rock-meets-pop with toilet humor and casual swears – an accessible middle ground between the despair and earnest ambience of early 1990s music.
Last year at Reading festival, the band performed Dookie in it’s entirety, and rumours quickly began circulating that a 20th Anniversary Tour could be on the cards; but this has yet to be confirmed. Fingers crossed, guys!
