On this day 19 years ago Green Day released their second full length album entitled Kerplunk. Kerplunk was released on Lookout Records, but then rereleased on Green Day's current record label, Reprise in January of 2007.

RollingStone.com says:
"Although 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hour and Kerplunk lacked the production value of later releases, they demonstrated the band's uncanny ability to meld irresistible pop hooks and charming, disarmingly honest lyrics with punk grit."

If you have a chance take an hour out of your day today, with us, and have a listen to this stunning album.
