Yeah mostly was the cussing and bratty attitude of the album but also the songs were catchy as #### and infectious. I still think Dookie doesn't really have a bad song. All the songs are memorable, short and sweet and catchy.
REM Green was also in a memory for me when I was younger too. When I first started driving, a year or so later I had a car and played nothing but REM's Green in the tape deck for several months.
Of course when one dumbass friend of mine heard me hearing REM they asked me about if Micheal Stipe was gay.
