On a recent Instagram post, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has revealed the unknown truth about the ‘Dookie’ album of the band and stunned his followers with this information.

Billie Joe unveiled that the cover photo of the album was different before it got officially released. As he stated in, Ernie from Sesame Street was on the original back cover of Dookie, and he revealed that it was the idea of his grandmother.

Here is what Billie Joe Armstrong said:

“Ha! This is funny. Ernie from Sesame Street was on the original back cover of Dookie… the story goes a grandmother bought dookie for her grandchildren because she thought it was a children’s album.

Whoops. And well… We had to take Ernie off… This photo was taken in 1993. We opened for Bad Religion at Roseland ballroom in New York. I always wondered whatever happened to the girl just to the right of the puppet with short hair? Anyone know? thought of the day.”

A fan named Timoty Justus wrote:

“Longview was the greatest song on that album!”

Another fan named Chris added this comment:

“Haha, I still love Ernie on the back. But I would buy the album again if this was the back cover 😂”
