Best Non-Single Songs from Green Day's Dookie Through American Idiot

These are the best NON-singles songs from Dookie through American Idiot.

The Top Ten

1 Whatsername Whatsername

Why this wasn't a single, I have no idea. But it deserves number one on this list

I just love this song and I will vote this to the top on any list

2 King for a Day King for a Day
3 Burnout Burnout

Opening line pretty much sums up the album: "I declare I don't care no more"

4 Stuart and the Ave.

This song is awesome

This is basically the "Basket Case" of "Insomniac". The only difference is, I find this way better. One of the catchiest, non-single, songs they've ever written. (Along with "The Grouch" and "Emenius Sleepus".)


5 Give Me Novacaine

I can't tell you why this song is so iconic for me, but I think is one of the best GD non commercial songs

6 The Grouch

So fun but at the same time has a lot of meaning.

7 Letterbomb

This is my favorite Green Day song!

My second favorite GD song

8 Pulling Teeth
9 Homecoming
10 Armatage Shanks

The Contenders

11 86
12 Bab's Uvula Who?
13 Take Back

It's loud and angry and I love it. Once dedicated it to a girl I hate. She didn't understand until she read the lyrics. Gold.

14 Misery
15 Brat
16 Church On Sunday


17 Platypus (I Hate You)
18 F.O.D.

I love how it starts out slow but then the electric guitars kick in and it gets really crazy. Why isn't this farther up on the list?

19 Outlaws Outlaws
