  • "Back then, I just wanted to write songs I could be proud of and be able to play in five years," Green Day singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong says, recalling his state of mind exactly 20 years ago – on February 1st, 1994, the day his band's third album and big-record-deal debut, Dookie, was released. He has another, earlier memory, just after Green Day got their advance money from Reprise Records, part of the Warner Bros. company, which issued Dookie and is still Green Day's label.

  • Quick histories of punk rock often highlight the immortal class of 1977 (Pistols, Clash, Ramones) and then jump to the crossover success of Nirvana and Green Day in the 90s. That's entirely misleading, overlooking an multitude of amazing punk and post-punk albums in between, but there's a reason "Dookie" remains such a landmark. For those well-versed in Fugazi, the Replacements and everything in between, punk never went anywhere. But for major labels and the music biz at large, "Dookie" forced the powers that be to once again pay attention to punk rock.
