Dookie Turns 20 on Saturday!
I’m surprised there isn’t much talk surrounding this. There are a lot of classic albums hitting that milestone this year and I made it a point to mark my calendar so they don’t slide by unnoticed.
While we’re on the subject of 20, Dookie has sold over 20 million albums worldwide and produced five hit singles. Longview, Basket Case, When I Come Around, Welcome To Paradise, and She. It’s still to this day their best selling album to date. What were you doing in the winter of ’94? Did you own Dookie? I was a sophomore in high school and was listening to it continuously.
Listen for cuts from the album all week. Here’ the CYY Dookie video of the day!
