Product Description

Amazon.ca

Punk had flirted with mainstream attention before--the Clash and Sex Pistols had hits--but didn't fully advance from the underground until this pure-punk 1994 album. In singing catchy, tight rock & roll tunes--including "Longview", "Welcome to Paradise" and "When I Come Around"--Green Day sneered its way into the hearts of millions. The Berkeley, California, trio also ignited a debate: Is it selling out for punks to sign with a major record label and become multi-platinum stars? Fortunately, this band didn't seem to care as much as Kurt Cobain did. --Steve Knopper

5.0 out of 5 stars Pop-Punk Perfection Jan. 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is the first album I ever bought, and I remember it changing my life. When you're a teenager the words of Billie Joe Armstrong on this album just really seem to speak your language. This album is filled with infectious catchy hooks, amazing bass lines, and driving beats, it's just one of the greatest albums of all time. As Ben, a friend of mine, would say; "This album should be issued to kids when they turn 13". I couldn't agree more. Every song on this album is an absolute gem, there really isn't any song on here that I felt could have been left off. Let's take a look.
1. Burnout - A song about getting old but instead of feeling like you're growing up you just find yourself feeling bitter, jaded, and burnt out. Features an awesome drum solo.
2. Having A Blast - More themes of frustration with the people around you.
3. Chump - A simple verse/chorus/verse number in the vein of Ramones style simplistic punk.
4. Longview - The big radio hit from Green Day, featuring the greatest bass line ever with subtle hints towards boredom and resulting "fun time with self" time.
5. Welcome to Paradise - A song originally from "Kerplunk!", this song talks about moving away from home and at first being scared to be alone, but then suddenly enjoying the freedom. Catchy as hell.
6. Pulling Teeth - The story of a sadistic girlfriend and the poor bastard involved with her.
7. Basket Case - Yet another of the big radio singles, Basket Case is basically a story about cracking up. going crazy man! going crazy!
8. She - My take on it is that it's a story about a girl that has to live up to certain social expectations, and her eventual moment of breaking out of the shell she lived in. Great song that kind of changes pace for the first time on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars So it's not exactly punk.... who cares? June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
In the ninetees, things were looking bleak, musically speaking. Rock had oficially been replaced by sub-standared hip-hop and techno-pop. The boybands were taking over, and popular music was generally... sh*t. Pure bullsh*t. But in the time of darkness, as always, there were heroes. The most notable, of course, was Nirvana, who gave the world Nevermind when we needed it most. Green Day came a close second with 1994's Dookie, a brilliant, even heroic, punk-pop record that seemed to channel the spirit of Joey Ramone himself (I think he was alive at the time, but that's not really important).
Dookie was great because it rekindled a love for the punk of old, the stuff of the Ramones and the Buzzcocks and the Undertones, that had seemed so long gone in those dark days of '94. But Green Day didn't just borrow old styles. They were innovators too, adding their own special brand of pop savvy, giving their songs an almost maddening catchiness. Naturally, the band became an overnight success, making millions in the process. They diserved every penny.
And it's not just the legendary slacker anthem "Longview," or the surprisingly touching ballad "When I Come Around" that give the album it's magic. Every single song is an instant gem.
The first song, "Burnout," for example, kicks off the album with a powerhouse drumbeat, along with a light speed, three power-chord guitar riff, and the catchiest sing-along lyrics this side of... the next song on the album. Halfway through "Burnout," drummer Tre Cool shows off his skills with three hyper mini-solos.
"Burnout" is so powerful that I actually had to stop and take a deep breath when the song was over.
The next song, "Having a Blast" doesn't let up the intensity.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Piece of Pop/Punk June 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
In my honest opinion, I believe this to be the best album Green Day has produced. "Dookie" was the album that finally got them recognition as a serious band and bought them an entire legion of fans. It also helped set the stage for a new generation of musicians and was one of the most influential albums of the '90s. A common complaint is that their sound was simple and sophomoric with "Dookie", but I do not believe that to be the case. Sure, their later albums exhibit a different style in some aspects, but your liking of this album just depends on which type of music you're looking for. Another complaint I have heard is that "Dookie" lacks depth, and I believe that to be false because songs like "When I Come Around", "She", and "F.O.D" provide meaningful lyrics intertwined with catchy melody.
When "Dookie" is compared to later albums, the difference is noticeable, but Green Day can still retain their trademark sound and mature at the same time. Other bands have failed in doing that (i.e. blink-182). When I heard blink-182's self-titled album, I was throughly disappointed because while taking creative license, they totally screwed up their sound and the old blink is dilluted in a haze of special effects. I know I'm a little off-topic, but the point I am tyring to make is that Green Day got their start with the sound on Dookie and were able to build on it later in their career. But these loud, catchy, and sometimes profound tunes stay stuck in your head for days and allow you to see everything that is going on around you in a more comical way. There is not a bad song on the CD and I suggest in wholeheartedly.

Fun lightweight pop-punk. Nothing terribly interesting or in any way groundbreaking, but not horrible either. I'd burn a copy, no way would I pay for it. Read more
