Green Day’s Dookie At 25: The Full Untold Story – Only In This Week’s Kerrang! Magazine
On the 25th anniversary of Green Day’s Dookie, Kerrang! gather untold stories – revealed by Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, producer Rob Cavallo and more – to chronicle the 18-month ride that made world-beaters of three 20-something punks, and rerouted the course of punk rock history forever…
And, if our exhaustive Dookie anniversary cover feature has got you feeling all nostalgic, you can also hark back to a time when gigs were advertised on giant bits of paper rather than on Facebook with an art print of a classic Green Day tour poster from 1994!
Elsewhere in the mag this week, Oli Sykes celebrates Bring Me The Horizon’s chart-topping success by taking us deeper inside amo, while Dave Grohl fires up the grill at this year’s epic Dimebash. On top of that, King Diamond takes our career-spanning Kerrang! Interview, Don Broco reflect on 12 months of hard work and wonder (while also casting a hopeful eye towards broader future horizons), and …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead celebrate two decades of their breakthrough album Madonna.
In the reviews section, rising U.S. punk quartet SWMRS ignite on smart, stylish and occasionally bonkers second album, and Enter Shikari bring a double dose of noise on two killer live records. On the gig front, Parkway Drive torch the winter blues at their biggest, best UK tour to date, London pops its cork as Cali punks FIDLAR return for one night in Heaven, and hardcore heavyweights Sick Of It All join forces to smash the EMP Persistence Tour.
All this and more is available in the new issue of Kerrang! – which you can get anywhere in the world when you order online through Newsstand. But for UK residents, it hits the shops on Wednesday, February 6 from all good newsagents.
