Although Dookie is usually credited for Green Day’s initial success, it was actually Kerplunk that first got their name out there and started drawing major mainstream attention. It was also the first Green Day album that featured Tre Cool on the drums. One of the best selling independent albums of all time, Kerplunk sold a whopping 10,000 copies on the day it was released.

The last four songs on Kerplunk were actually first released on the Sweet Children EP.
