In many ways Green Day's first "proper" album--the debut 1039/Smoothed Out SlappyHours was stitched together from multiple sessions and didn't feature the definitive lineup with drummer Tre Cool--Kerplunk is an early-1990s milestone. One listen to this album makes it clear why Green Day, rather than any of their Bay Area peers, were the band that won the major-label lottery; they were simply better than the vast majority of their contemporaries.

This record's version of "Welcome to Paradise," while rougher than the eventual hit single from 1994's Dookie, is only one of several clearly brilliant pop songs delivered with an approach that's part Buzzcocks, part Go-Go's, mixing sharply drawn neuroses and sweet pop hooks. "Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?" and the downright sweet "2000 Light Years Away," an unabashed love song to the woman who singer Billie Joe Armstrong would soon marry, are just as good. This edition also adds the four-song weet Children EP, which includes a brash cover of the Who's "My Generation."

Bio

Coming out of the grass-roots Gilman St. punk scene of the early-1990s Bay Area, Green Day exploded into the mainstream with their third album, 1994's Dookie. The trio's punk energy and pop hooks, influenced by first-generation punks like the Buzzcocks, in turn inspired a huge legion of punk-pop followers. Their energy level flagged a bit following the smash success of Dookie, but the band's enormously successful 2004 Grammy-winning political concept album, American Idiot, proved they were mature artists and far from a one-trick pony.
