Dookie ranks at #30 in the best albums of the 1990s
Recently, RollingStone.com took the time to look back at the best albums of the 1990s and ranked Green Day's Dookie at number thirty on the list.
"Millions of us made time to listen to Billie Joe Armstrong whine as he and his band of Bay Area punk snots won America's heart with fast guitars, bouncy drums and the fakest English accents ever recorded. Their hits fit together like a stack of Pringles: "Basket Case" takes off with a case of the creeps and a melody that plays tricks on you, while "Longview" and "When I Come Around" vent the usual teen spirit with groovy hooks that the Bay City Rollers would have appreciated. Green Day took the booming Cali-punk revival to middle America: Cuter than Muppets, funnier than Weird Al, Green Day showed no signs of growing up here -- which made their later transformation into politically charged arena-rockers that much more remarkable."

Other albums that made the list include Madonna's Ray of Light, The Smashing Pumpkins' Siamese Dream, and Nirvana's Nevermind taking the number one spot.
