26 Years Ago Today GREEN DAY Released “Dookie”
26 years ago today the pop-punk band GREEN DAY released their first record on a major label titled “Dookie” and it was a massive success. It spawned numerous singles including “Basket Case”, “When I Come Around,” “Longview” and “She.” The album ushered in a short period of time where punk rock was the new “in” thing and grunge was well an afterthought.

GREEN DAY in the meanwhilehas a new album coming out next week called “Father of All….” and is about to hit the road with WEEZER and FALL OUT BOY on the “Hella Mega Tour” this summer.
