Permanent Records is an ongoing closer look at the records that matter most.

 

For a record that’s sold 10 million copies, it’s hard to imagine that, at one time, Green Day’s Dookie was subversive. The band’s early, underground years as a Bay Area punk band have been well documented, and given that in Dookie’s wake the band’s independent offerings (the collection of its first album and early singles, 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, and its sophomore LP, Kerplunk) would be certified gold and platinum, it’s almost even harder to imagine the group had ever been classified as obscure

 

When Dookie hit stores on that first day of February 1994, it was unknowingly serving as Nevermind’s follow-up. Not because of stylistic overlap, but due to Green Day’s status as a virtually unknown band jumping the ranks and setting up a seismic shock that would bring about punk rock’s heyday with the culture-at-large.

 

That kind of integration proved even though Green Day was on its way to superstardom, these guys were dead-set on doing it without compromise, and were attempting to take all their friends along with them.

Why would you post in a thread for an article without reading teh article or even the OP? You don't even need to click teh link to see that it's praising teh album you can see just from reading that extract.

Anyway great summing up of teh album. teh title is a brilliant way of putting it.

Are you guys commenters on the Daily Mail website? Yay for the culture of whining about articles without reading them.
