Dookie, Green Day's third full-album and first breakthrough release, came out nineteen years ago today: February 1, 1994. The album's first single, "Longview," was also first widely released on the same date.

If American Idiot was Green Day's second "world-takeover,", Dookie undoubtedly marked the beginning of the first. It goes almost without saying that the band would not be where they are today if it weren't for the exposure, fans, and revenue generated by this album (named after poop, of all things). Go listen to Dookie in full sometime today!

An interesting side-note: Mike said in a recent interview that the band has fooled around with the idea of playing Dookie in full sometime in the maybe-not-so-distant future. How cool would that be?! Talk about a tough ticket, though...
