Label: Reprise

When Green Day dropped their major label debut and won over the mainstream, punk fans complained that the band had "sold out." They had no idea by 2010, the "punks" would be taking their music to the least punk place possible: Broadway. Despite the fact that Green Day's mainstream success drastically changed the direction of their sound, Dookie still stands as the perfect balance between a brash rock album for the rebellious youth and something catchy enough for millions to embrace.
