The album/story also tells a typical teen-angst-style love story that applies a double meaning to the cover (which is a hand holding a heart-shaped grenade).
The album is expected to receive negative criticism (especially by those who don't take the time to truly understand the story or are too quick to judge and disregard it as "left-wing propaganda"), since it was considered a highly experimental concept from the very beginning. Others simply don't like it because of its difference from the typical Green Day style, but many see this as a refreshing and much-needed break. Love it or hate it, "American Idiot" is Green Day's first new release full-length album since 2002.
