It's OK. Hardly worth remembering though.

It's the most important pop punk album of all time and one of the most important albums of the 90s. It's not a stretch to say that Dookie catapulted punk music back into mainstream consciousness.

After Nirvana and the whole Grunge era,the mainstream was interested in Punk . Thats what they wanted. The bands that got mainstream attention was Green Day,Offspring,Bad Religion,Pennywise,Rancid,AFI,and some shitty band called Blink 182.

This was the album that made Green Day who they were and did in fact change Punk forever. Possibly the first band to get filth rich playing Punk. This is the album that made a name for themselves(hell people still think it's their first album). I can honestly say hearing my older sister play Green Day when I was 5-9 years old as the start for my love of Punk Rock. Green Day will always be a band I respect and love. Hate em all you want. This album rules and Green Day is the only mainstream Pop Punk band that matters. Billie Joe is still an inspiration.

Too bad they split up in 2002 after International Superhits came out. Oh well.

I don't care if it rolls over and plays dead, it's still not that good.

As far as "catapulting punk music back into mainstream consciousness", Nirvana took care of that a few years earlier. Dookie was a big album, to be sure. Most kids growing up in the 90's probably owned it. I even owned it at one time. But to consider it a groundbreaking or important album is seriously stretching the definitions of both words.

Not gonna lie. The popular singles (except September) in American Idiot were great along with St. Jimmy. And I loved Uno.

Theres a good chance Punk would be a forgotten lost genre without this. You know all those stupid Fashion Street Punx with their Casualties shirts that are always shitting on Green Day? Theres a chance they wouldn't exist without this album. It's ok to hate this album(especially for making Punk safe and enjoyable to old ladies) but this was definitely important.
