One of the first Green Day albums I ever heard which I think is the same for older fans as well. This has also become my running album. Whenever I set out to go for a run I stick this on from the start and leave it playing. Makes me feel aliiiiive!

Anyway, I'd say my favourite tracks are Having a Blast, Longview, She, Coming Clean & F.O.D. That said, what is with all the hate for F.O.D? I absolutely LOVE it's love/quiet dynamic.

I was listening to Pulling Teeth this morning... for some reason this song always gets stuck in my head. :lol: i love the way it sounds humourous :happy:
that's one thing i like in this album. it's funny. some of the later albums imo are missing this.

I'd have to say Dookie's my favourite album. I used to change favourite albums all the time, but not for a while now. It's just brilliant all through. I can't pick one song to put on, 'cause it's always the whole album I want to listen to.
When I Come Around is my favourite song though. :wub:

I have to agree with you, Anna, my favorite album has been Nimrod for a long time, but Dookie is just .. perfect, I don't know how else to describe it

The third GD album i ever heard...and its amazing. I love listening to it on repeat especially Having A Blast (i can relate to that song so much). But coming clean its amazing too, and sounds so good live (still cant actually believe that i have heard them do this live!)

I don't know what it is about When I Come Around, but every time I hear it, I think back to the 90's.

My favorite Green Day album...last year, when 21st CB came out, a friend told me that 21st CB was awful. Yesterday, while the same person was listening to dookie, he told me "When I come Around is amazing!...and also She!...and also...every song!"...
I think that everyone should listen to this record, and then should fall in love with it :D

I dunno, I'm not a huuge fan of Dookie. I like it, it's not just as omfingawesome as everyone acts.

I like WICA, Welcome to Paradise... not much others have really held my interest =/

And I was proud 'cause I payed 14 dollars for the american version in a secret store instead of the 20 for the chilean version in a normal store :lol:

I don't know what makes me so unable to connect with Dookie... It just feels like there's something missing, and I don't know what it is. Every song is totally awesome, it just feels wrong. Really hard to explain.
When I Come Around, Longview, She, and Basket Case are all fantastic. The re-record of Welcome to Paradise makes the song SO much better than the Kerplunk version (which is already awesome). That's what I don't get though. I love so many songs from the album, but when I listen to it as a whole I just can't get as into it as, say, Nimrod or American Idiot.

nothing to argue about, this is the number 1 Green Day Album...

songs like Basket Case, She, When I Come Around or Coming Clean are some of the best songs ever written in my opinion...

This was the 1st album I ever loved. This album got me listening to music as a whole. I still love this and listen to it regularly. Fantastic album. Not a bad song. I still have my original one from 94. Case has had it but it plays fine!
