From Basket Case with entirely different lyrics to dog poo bags, there's so much coming that it's hard to take it all in. We'll start with the physical items.

Vinyl: six-LP box sets and baby blue vinyl

There are two vinyl box sets: one on black vinyl and a special edition on, well, Dookie-coloured vinyls, both $175 each. They also include those dog poo bags, a poster, colouring page, button badge set, magnets, a postcard, bumper sticker, air fresheners and a paper plane – all Dookie-themed, of course. Here's a close-up look at the included merch:

The box sets feature intros by producer Rob Cavallo and music critic Bob Mehr, known for writing Trouble Boys: The True Story of the Replacements.

There's also this singular baby blue vinyl, which can be purchased separately for $25 or as a "fan pack" with the t-shirt for $55.

CDs: four-CD box set

Again, all box sets offer the same audio. The CD one includes a 48-page book, button badge set, air freshener, magnet and two stickers. It's $50. A closer look at the extras:

Like the vinyl box sets, this one also features intros by producer Rob Cavallo and music critic Bob Mehr.

Apparel: t-shirts, a vest, cap, hoodie, thermal shirt and sweater

If your wardrobe isn't already full of Green Day stuff (calling myself out here), there's plenty to choose from. The shirts start at $30 and the most expensive item is the chore vest for $120.

Other bits and bobs: a dog bowl, bandana and numbered poster

If you love the Dookie artwork, you might want one of only 500 numbered, 18" x 24" posters. They're $50 each. Your own dog can even get its own Dookie bowl for $40. The bandana is $25 (and should probably be in the apparel section, but I already stuck it on the picture above).

Now onto the music!

There'll be six lots of music to enjoy: the original Dookie album, four-track demos, cassette demos, outtakes, the infamous Woodstock performance and an unreleased live performance from a club show in Barcelona, 1994.

So, we already know what's on the Dookie album, but let's have a look at the others.
