About this album

Dookie is the third studio album and the major label debut by American punk rock band Green Day. The album was the band’s first collaboration with producer Rob Cavallo. Released on February 1, 1994 through Reprise Records, Dookie became a worldwide commercial success, reaching number two on the U.S. Billboard 200 and charting in seven countries. The album helped to propel Green Day into mainstream popularity, amid claims from the punk rock community that the band had “sold out”.

Dookie produced five singles for the band: “Longview”, the re-recorded “Welcome to Paradise”, “Basket Case”, the radio-only single “She” and “When I Come Around”. As of 2008, Dookie is the band’s best-selling album, with over 15 million copies sold worldwide. Dookie won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 1995.

Following the underground success of the band’s second album Kerplunk (1992), a number of major labels became interested in Green Day. Representatives of these labels attempted to entice the band to sign by inviting them for meals to discuss a deal, with one manager even inviting the group to Disneyland. The band declined these advances until meeting producer and Reprise representative Rob Cavallo. They were impressed by his work with fellow Californian band The Muffs, and later remarked that Cavallo “was the only person we could really talk to and connect with”.
