The album officially includes only 12 tracks, but the versions released on CD and cassette also include the 4 tracks from the Sweet Children EP. One of those 4 tracks is a cover of The Who’s “My Generation”. Another notable track on the album is “Welcome to Paradise”, which the band would re-record for their next album Dookie.
As of November 2006, Kerplunk has sold 699,001 units in the United States, and over 4 million worldwide.
In August 2005, Green Day pulled this album, as well as all of their other material released through the label, from Lookout! due to unpaid royalties. It was reissued on CD by Reprise Records, who Green Day has been with since leaving Lookout!, on January 9, 2007. Note that in Europe, the album was released by Epitaph Europe, and has remained in print. It was reissued on vinyl on March 24, 2009 by Reprise Records and includes a reissue of the Sweet Children EP.
