Green Day is an American rock band formed in 1986 by lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and bassist Mike Dirnt. For much of the band's career, they have been a trio with drummer Tré Cool, who replaced John Kiffmeyer in 1990 prior to the recording of the band's second studio album, Kerplunk (1991). Green Day was originally part of the punk scene at the DIY 924 Gilman Street club in Berkeley, California. The band's early releases were with the independent record label Lookout! Records
Dookie is the third studio album by American rock band Green Day, released on February 1, 1994 by Reprise Records. The band's first collaboration with producer Rob Cavallo, it was recorded in late 1993 at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, California. Written mostly by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, the album is mostly based around his personal experiences, with themes such as boredom, anxiety, relationships, and sexuality
The album was Green Day’s first production with the major record label Reprise. Most importantly, Dookie allowed Green Day to blast from virtually unknown band to one of the most important in launching pop punk in the mainstream. The genre-defining album subsequently turned Green Day into a genre-defining band. As the lead single to the album, Longview helped boost Dookie’s success. The song is the only Dookie single to not appear as number one on the . Modern Alternative Rock Chart. Hit single Basket Case spent five weeks at the top of the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks. The song is based off of frontman Billie Joe Armstrong’s personal experiences with anxiety and bisexuality. The final single from Dookie, When I Come Around is no less powerful.
The album is self-produced by Green Day, recorded by Chris Dugan, mixed by Andrew Scheps, and mastered by Eric Boulanger at Bakery Mastering. TRÉ!
