Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong shared his thoughts on Dookie in an Instagram post on Friday, as the punk band's breakthrough album celebrated its 25th anniversary.

Armstrong said the band thought about playing Dookie in its entirety at the pyramids in Egypt or Machu Picchu but the ideas never came to fruition.

"Dookie makes me think about Berkeley a lot. Our house on Ashby and Ellsworth a block from telegraph avenue. Living in a basement with a band called East Bay Weed Company," Armstrong wrote.

He added, "'The Ashby house' was our little punk house. I would write songs all night and wake up at 2:00 pm. Have a bagel and a coffee on the front steps."

Armstrong also mentions wanting and dreading to be a rock star, facing local punk scene backlash and stress but notes, "You have to have gratitude for the bad and the ugly too."

"Well... that's the random thoughts I have for now... I hope people keep listening.. cause we'll keeping playing," he says in conclusion.
