Marking three decades of one of the most influential albums of all time, five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning band Green Day announce the massive Dookie 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition out on September 29, 2023. Pre-order/pre-save HERE.
As part of this blockbuster collection, the California trio celebrate their landmark 10x platinum, diamond-certified GRAMMY® Award-winning third full-length offering and major label debut by unveiling previously unreleased Dookie demos—4-Track Demos and Cassette Demos—and Outtakes as well as two seminal live recordings, Live At Woodstock (1994) – for the first time on DSPs – and the previously unreleased Live In Barcelona(June 5 ’94).
Of course, the record also houses signature generational anthems “Basket Case,” “When I Come Around,” “Welcome To Paradise,” and “Longview,” among others.
Dookie 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be available everywhere digitally as well as a limited-edition 6-LP vinyl box set and 4-CD box set. Plus, a special version of the 6-LP vinyl box set will only be available on the band’s web store and at indie record stores with each record pressed on a different shade of brown vinyl.
Loaded to the brim with collector’s items, the vinyl box set boasts a roll of Dookie dog poop bags, five-button set, air freshener, postcard, bumper sticker, kiss-cut large magnet sheet, paper airplane, a black-and-white “Coloring Page” cover litho insert, and a poster of the alternate cover art. The CD box set consists of two stickers, the five-button set, air freshener, and single soft vinyl magnet. Both box set versions feature a heartfelt personal intro penned by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo and extensive liner notes from GRAMMY® Award winner Bob Mehr.
Dookie’s influence remains downright inescapable. It has sold a staggering 20 million copies worldwide and stands out as "the first punk album to be certified Diamond by the RIAA for North American sales in excess of 10 million.” Out of four 1995 GRAMMY® Award nominations, it notably garnered “Best Alternative Album.” Rolling Stone touted it on the “500 Greatest Albums of AllTime” and Pitchforkretrospectively christened it “one of the greatest teenage wasteland albums of any generation.”The Daily Beast remarked on “How Green Day’s Dookie Defined the 1990s and Changed Music Forever.” Speaking to its sustained impact, it has generated billions of streams to date.
To put it in perspective, Dookie has lived through five presidential administrations, Y2K, social media, a global pandemic, and the birth of countless acolytes.
However, there’s still nothing like it after all of this time.
