Objectionable Content

Dark tracks painted with large brush strokes of apathy, hopelessness, boredom and despair dominate this disc ("Pulling Teeth," "Longview," "Burnout"). Other obscenity-laced themes include self-diagnosed insanity ("Basket Case," "Having a Blast"), retreating into pornography and illicit sex ("Longview," "Basket Case," "F.O.D.") and self-loathing ("Sassafrass Roots"). Musical and visual images of drug use also appear. On "Chump" and "Having a Blast," the singer hatefully blames others for his woeful plight, even to the point of murdering them ("I'm taking all you down with me . . . no one is getting out alive").

Summary Advisory

The band's appearance at Woodstock '94 seemed to temporarily boost Green Day's popularity. Too bad. Dookie (slang for excrement) is, itself, nihilistic waste.
