An album by my favourite band green day. Released in 2004.
It is a "rock opera" and tells the story of some young kids in modern america, and says a big fuck you to politians. some fucktards believe this album made green day sellouts, but they are just trying to be cool and thinking they are the true fans because they have nimrod and dookie! well fuck you so do i! And if you arsewipes actually sat your fat asses down and listened to it you would realise it is good, maybe not as good as dookie, but still good. Green day are NOT SELLOUTS. Its not their fault people liked american idiot. They didn't know people would, they have always said they write for themselves not others. And yes, some people have only got american idiot, and you find it extremely funny to call them teenyboppers and shit, but its not their fault they were only like two went dookie was realised, and how were they to known MTV was shit before they actaully watched it. Nothing is going to change by you telling the world you don't like it! And just admit it Billie Joe is hot!

American and Idiot are interchangeable.
George Bush in and American

George Bush is an Idiot

1) A teeny bopper who claims to be Green Day fans solely due to the release of the album American Idiot. Play them any album track from an earlier Green Day album, even Dookie, and they will say "thats not Green Day"

2) Kids who are fed up of being called idiots for liking Green Day solely due to American Idiot, who say "but I was only 3 when Dookie came out"
1) Green Day Fan: Hey do you like Green Day?
American Idiot: Yeah I really like Boulevard of broken dreams
GRF: Here's a REAL Green Day song *puts on Welcome to Paradise*
AI: What the hell is that? It sounds like good music, but I'm used to the modern shit Green Day *head explodes*

2) American Idiot: "Don't slag me off for only liking American Idiot, I was only 2 when Dookie came out"
Green Day Fan: "But they have had other albums since then, and besides I was only 4 when Dookie came out, but when I was 16 I went out and bought it because it is highly rated. So don't give me that I'm too young bullshit"

an incredible album by green day. if you don't like this album you suck. And dont go and call me some poser because i love who wrote holden caulified, andriod, coming clean, worry rock, and all the songs before american idiot too. There is no rule saying you can't like both...but you're lying when you say jesus of suburbia doesnt have incredible lyrics.
I'm gonna go buy American Idiot because i like green day!

Politically charged, anti-Bush punk rock album.

For the accusers who claim that Green Day are sellouts, read their fucking interviews and see how damn passionate they are about the situation.

Green Day is still Green Day, but aged a few years. And despite that fact, they're still a kick ass band with so much more to accomplish.
"Dude, American Idiot has 2 nine minute long ballads"
"Who else can pull that shit off?"
"Green Day, you fucker!"

The american guy on here who wanted something removed and said it wasn't urban cos it wasn't american Here's the actual quote "Urban, as in AMERICA you 'tards." I think he needs an actual dictionary to see what urban means
He really was an idiot

To claim you are a die hard fan of Green Day when you only started liking them after American Idiot came out.

Instead of appreciating Green Day's older music, you play the two or three songs you downloaded on repeat until next week, when you will probably like a different band.

*Note: Newer Green Day albums are still decent but people who only like Green Day for songs like Know Your Enemy, don't really know what Green Day are all about.
Guy 1: "Oh man! I just love Green Day! I love their new stuff like Know Your Enemy, but I also love their old stuff like Holiday as well!"

Guy 2: "Shut up you American Idiot."
