When Green Day released "She" as the fifth and final single from Dookie in May of 1995, America was starting to get a little sick of the band. Their music had dominated MTV and radio for the past year, and they were starting to reach the saturation point. "She" was the only single from the disc not to reach the Top 40, and that was a clear sign to Warner Bros. to stop milking the album. That doesn't mean it's a bad song – quite the contrary. "She" is a brilliant, short and sweet kiss-off to an ex-girlfriend that has aged quite well. Many Green Day fans would be far happier to see this song busted out in concert than yet another run-through of "Basket Case."
