My favorite album of all time would have to be Dookie by Green Day. Though I didn’t quite discover it until American Idiot came out, it was the the album that had the most pivotal impact on me. I remember being 10 and hearing “Longview” for the first time and I thought to myself, “I need to be a rockstar. I need to make songs that make me feel like this one does.”
It’s an authentically rebellious “I-don’t-give-a-f***” piece of art. And it changed my life.
