The credit for popularising punk rock in mainstream music and adding commercial success to it solely goes to Green Day. Green Day gained widespread popularity with their third studio album, “Dookie,” released in 1994. The album included hit singles such as “Longview,” “Basket Case,” and “When I Come Around.” Dookie put Green Day up the charts and became a musical sensation around the globe.
