Green Day to release expanded Dookie 30th anniversary edition

Green Day will release an expanded Super Deluxe 30th anniversary edition of their 1994 smash, “Dookie”, on September 29.

Originally launched with the lead single, “Longview”, the California band’s third album and major label debut also featured instant classics like “Basket Case”, “Welcome To Paradise”, “When I Come Around” and “She.”

“Dookie” would go on to sell more than 20 million copies worldwide, including 10 million in the US alone as the band smashed its way into the mainstream while remaining true to their punk roots.

The "Dookie" 30th-anniversary Super Deluxe Edition will be available everywhere digitally as well as a limited-edition six-LP vinyl box set and four-CD box set; plus, a special version of the six-LP vinyl box set will only be available on the band's webstore and at indie record stores with each record pressed on a different shade of brown vinyl.

The sets will deliver the original album alongside 17 unreleased demos and 6 studio outtakes, as well as live recordings from Woodstock 1994 and a concert in Barcelona, Spain.

Loaded up with collector's items, the vinyl box set boasts a roll of "Dookie" dog poop bags, five-button set, air freshener, postcard, bumper sticker, kiss-cut large magnet sheet, paper airplane, a black-and-white "coloring page" cover litho insert, and a poster of the alternate cover art.

The CD box set consists of two stickers, the five-button set, air freshener, and single soft vinyl magnet.

Both box set versions feature a personal intro penned by Grammy Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo and extensive liner notes from Grammy Award winner Bob Mehr.
