Green Day

The high watermarks in Green Day’s career comes down to two albums: “Dookie,” and decade later, “American Idiot.”  There’s a lot more, but those two albums speak to the angst of the time.

After two good, if unexceptional, albums, Green Day nailed it with “Dookie,” a blast of post-Grunge/Punk spoke to the ambiguity, lack of viable or even workable choices, not to mention the stark realization of expending a lot of energy to get nowhere. 

Green Day came out snarling on “American Idiot,” a concept album dubbed a “Punk Rock Opera,” it challenged the hubris that was the national coin of the realm.  It’s uncompromising and uncompromised.
