20th Century Pop! is a podcast that tries to understand the present by living in the past.  Each week hosts Bob and Tim take a sociological look at the pop culture of the '80s and '90s.  Its a ruining of their childhood that hopefully explains how they became adults.

COMPACT DISC-USSION: "“It’s those guys from the Angus soundtrack.” (1994) To Bob and Tim the word "Punk” meant spiked hair, safety pins and an un-listened to Sex Pistols album from BMG. Or did until they stumbled across the chord progressions of a power trio barely older than their teenage selves. That band was Green Day and, on today’s episode, they are discussing the anthems of apathy and symphonies of disconnect that make up the what-it-was-to-be-in-the-90s album “Dookie.”

Walk it once more around the block with their original music video for WHEN I COME AROUND.

Go a little behind the grainy footage of how Green Day dropped this with this episode of VH1 ULTIMATE ALBUMS: DOOKIE.

And indulge in a little peace, love and rampant commercialism with this complete performance of GREEN DAY AT WOODSTOCK' ‘94.
