Punk rock continued to thrive in the underground in the early 1990s, but it reached unheard of levels of popularity in the mid '90s when Green Day's Dookie sold 10 million copies and became the best-selling punk album of all time. Bands like Rancid enjoyed similar success, garnering airplay on alternative and album rock radio. Many fans were surprised that punk rock finally found mainstream success nearly 20 years after it first emerged, and the popularity of these bands allowed various forms of punk to grow. Many bands who survived the '80s like Bad Religion signed deals with major labels, and the Sex Pistols and Misfits surprised everyone by reforming for reunion tours and albums.
