15 Songs, 38 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Green Day's major label debut is an explosion of punk-pop pleasure. They've found the promise of the American Dream a joke, but don't know who's to blame. Songs like "Chump," "Long View," and "Emenius Sleeping" point the finger randomly, including back at themselves. Dookie helped revive punk music, wrapping it in great pop songs like "Basket Case" and "When I Come Around," making furious dissatisfaction fun again.
