  1. Insomniac

    Insomniac is the fourth studio album by the American punk rock band Green Day. It was released on October 10, 1995 through Reprise Records. Though it peaked at number two in the United States and went double-platinum by 1996, Insomniac did not have the sales endurance of its predecessor, Dookie, largely due to its slightly darker lyrical tone and heavier, more abrasive sound. Insomniac is the band's third-best selling album behind Dookie and American Idiot with sales at over 10 million worldwide and 2,100,000 copies in the US alone. The album was reissued on vinyl on May 12, 2009.
