GREEN DAY / Dookie [1994]

Breaking into the mainstream like nobody's business, Green Day's third album Dookie is easily one of the essential albums of the '90's. Their major label debut gives the drums more punch, the bass more bounce, multi-layered guitars for maximum crunch and the songwriting is tighter than ever. With no time between songs to catch your breath, Dookie is one melodic pop-punk hook directly after another.
With it's snotty, apathetic attitude and a middle finger up the nose, this album has been imitated on several occasions but has yet to be one-upped by anybody in the pop-punk world.
