Origins & Musical Style
The band was the most sought after act in San Francisco’s Bay Area, before they started to tour nationally and signed a record deal. Their first two albums, 39/Smooth, and Kerplunk came at the time when punk rock was being revived in the US and therefore Green Day is credited for reviving this subgenre along with other bands. These albums however enjoyed moderate commercial success.
Dookie and More
In 1994, Green Day’s Dookie was released. The album was such a huge hit that it was certified Diamond by the RIAA and debuted at No.2 position on the Billboard 200. In addition to being a commercially successful album, Dookie also impressed the critics with the New York Times calling it "Punk turns into pop in fast, funny, catchy, high-powered songs about whining and channel-surfing; apathy has rarely sounded so passionate."
After Dookie, the band released Insomniac, Nimrod, Warning, American Idiot, 21st Century Breakdown, Uno! Dos! Tré! and Revolution Radio. At their upcoming concert, they’re expected to play from these albums. So get your Green Day Des Moines tickets today and enjoy live punk rock from the best punk rockers of the world.
