So as you guys may or may not know next year marks a very important year in terms of album anniversaries. In 2014 it will mark Dookie's 20th Birthday and American Idiot's 10th.
On February 1st 1994 Dookie was released and on September 21st 2004 American Idiot was released.
What I want to co-ordinate is a cover album made by you guys, the GDC users. I want the album to be completely reproduced.
I want the Dookie cover to be out on February 1st, the release date.
Now this thread is not for American Idiot cover. That will come along in mid 2014. This thread is for Dookie covers only.
No deadline has been put in place yet but I do want songs being reserved.
Songs can be recorded however you like (instrumental, team-up, electric, acoustic, piano....)
Songs go on a first come, first serve basis.
If you don't get a song you want, there can always be a possibility that it frees up or you could wait for the American Idiot cover.
Here is the song list:
1. Burnout (FoxboroBoy93)
2. Having A Blast (Insomniac45)
3. Chump (Cob)
4. Longview (Jimmy Strummer)
5. Welcome to Paradise (RobbieRandom)
6. Pulling Teeth (RusselJohnson225)
7. Basket Case (Braedon H)
8. She (Jhei Morisato)
9.Sassafras Roots (localinsomniac)
10. When I come around (Caroline Daniels)
11. Coming Clean (Tman684)
12. Emenius Sleepus (Al Minigun)
13. In the end (Jackinabox86 and GreenDazed)
14. F.O.D (Dirty Rotten Forgotten)
15. All by myself (Gregorovich)
**List updated as of June 3rd at 4:05 PM EST**
As a bonus (and also due to overwhelming amount of demands) we will also be releasing community done covers of the Dookie Demos.
Here is the list of songs:
Tired of Waiting for You (Uno,Dos,Tre123)
On the Wagon (West Side Highway)
Don't Want to Fall In Love (ThatJonGuy)
Metal Song (Idiotic Tendency)
Haushinka (Dookie style)
Walkin' the Dog
Food Around the Corner (Kyle Chastulik)
Billie Joe's Mom (maurokanvaz)
Comment to reserve a song. 1 song per user. Wait a bit before you choose a 2nd song.
Send your covers to: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any further questions you can contact me by:
or you could just simply send an e-mail to the adress that you will send your covers to. (Skype and FaceTime/iMessage will get a faster response though)
Thanks for the co-operation:
Update: So here's how everything is going on my side of things.
First off I would like to mention that Florence will actually be doing the album artwork for all of the cover albums that we will be releasing next year.
Second, stop asking me for a due date! I don't have a specific due date but have your stuff prepared for Last week of December- 1st week of January (Date TBD)
Finally, as far as downloading the album goes. Right now I have 3 options, iTunes (as a free download), Reverbnation or Soundcloud.
I can't exactly distribute through apple since I don't have a Mac. The company that could distribute seems like they can put it out for free which means you guys download it for free (Hooray ). I sent an e-mail to said distributor and I will give you the response in the next update I post.
