"Punk purists may turn their nose up at Green Day, but Dookie, their punk-pop classic album, has stood the test of time, with its sarcasm, self-deprecation, humour , and pop-guitar hooks still standing.
Released in 1994 as their first album on a major label, Dookie arrived at the end of the Nirvana-era, and blasted a hole in the moody grunge enveloping the music world. Spikey, pop-y, arrogant as hell, Dookie is full of attitude and tunes. From opener "Burnout", the album rarely lets up pace, with manic tempos, loud guitars, funky bass and pissed-off lyrics lacing every track.
Dookie is by no means perfect, but it is a stand-out album. If you're looking for 40 minutes full of punk attitude, tunes and biting lyrics, you won't find much better than this." - BBC.co.uk
