Overview

Nearly two decades after their predecessors first started assaulting dinosaur-rock's fortress with a three-chords-and-a-cloud-of-dust attack, this young, loud, and snotty Bay Area trio conquered the charts without compromising their punk approach one whit. Thanks in part to the fine-tuned songcraft and heartfelt angst of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day touched a nerve with millions of disaffected suburbanites -- not to mention urbanites and rural denizens. Songs such as "Longview" and "Basket Case" filter Green Day's influences -- poppier first-wave punk acts like the Buzzcocks and the Undertones -- through a decidedly modern American worldview, one that's both pissed and resigned, full of protest but not averse to a hearty laugh. More than their prior indie releases, Dookie focused the trio's energies, sharpening the fangs of gnashing songs such as "Burnout" and "F.O.D." while using a lighter hand to underscore the genuine emotionalism of finger-poppers such as "When I Come Around." Some people insist that punk died in the late 1970s, but Green Day's remarkable resuscitation proves it was only sleeping one off.
