39/Smooth is the debut studio album by the American punk rock band Green Day. It was released on April 13, 1990 through Lookout! Records.

Background

39/Smooth is the only album by Green Day to feature John Kiffmeyer on drums. It was released in 1990, with its first releases being black vinyl. It was then made in green vinyls, with only 800 existing. Old versions of the album have the old Lookout! Laytonville address printed on the back.

Only 3,000 copies of the album were sold when it was first release. After the release of Dookie however, sales went up to 55,000 copies.

Jesse Michaels of the Berkley punk rock band, Operation Ivy, contributed the artwork of the album. The inner sleeve features lyrics written by Billie Joe Armstrong and letters by Kiffmeyer and Lookout! owner, Larry Livermore that were addressed to I.R.S. Records that rejected their offer to sign Green Day to the label.

A CD version of 39/Smooth was never made, but the album's tracks were later featured on the band's compilation album, 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours along with tracks from Slappy and 1,000 Hours.
