Green Day Dookie Album Review
by Peko4

Dookie(19 milion copies) is the third album by the pop punk band Green Day. It is named after the slang term for human feces. The album was retitled after the original title, "Liquid Dookie," was deemed too obscene for mainstream audiences.

It was released in 1994 as their major label debut for Reprise Records and became a sensation among the American mainstream, causing considerable controversy in the punk community, with many critics claiming the band had sold out. With singles like "When I Come Around", "Basket Case" and "Longview" all going to #1 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart, Dookie was propelled to #2 on the Billboard 200 album chart.

The songs on Dookie blend fast and slow punk and included a transition between "Chump" and "Longview" that some see as an inspiration for the rock opera of 2004's American Idiot.

Dookie's first single, "Longview", refers to boredom-induced masturbation. Tré Cool's drum lead and Billie Joe Armstrong's fast fretwork evoke The Damned's "New Rose" and features a trademark Mike Dirnt bassline.

Dookie won a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. It is placed as number 100 on Rolling Stones list of the The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It was also placed as #10 on MuchMoreMusic Top 40 Greatest Albums Of The Past 25 Years in 2005. With a diamond certification, Dookie has sold 12.6 million units as of August 2006 in the US alone, making it the best selling punk album of all time,and 0ver 19 milion records over the world.album who changed the music in punk and rock.
