A visual history of this veteran punk band
1994: "Dookie" happens
After numerous label courtships, Green Day ultimately signed with Reprise Records. The trio entered the studio with producer Rob Cavallo, who had previously helped manage Prince's career, and recorded "Dookie" in a scant three weeks.
Fun fact: Tre Cool wrote and performed "All By Myself," the album's hidden track.
Cavallo went on to produce other efforts from multi-platinum acts like Goo Goo Dolls, Alanis Morrissette and Eric Clapton, though he also contributed production credits to critically-acclaimed acts like L7, Jawbreaker and Butthole Surfers.
