Green Day “Dookie” 2-1-94 [VIDEOS]
Today is the day. Green Day’s Dookie albums turns 20. The song that began the explosion into the mainstream scene was a song that Billy Joe Armstrong said was basically written about boredom, masturbation and smoking weed. Even though the album came with a much more polished sound, that and other lyrics from Dookie were pretty punk rock. Ever wonder how Mike Dirnt came up with the bass line at the beginning of the song? He was fooling around on the bass while on LSD.
After that came future classics “Welcome To Paradise”, “Basket Case”, “She” and “When I Come Around.” Crank up Dookie today!
