a once great band who is now overrated. american idiot is hailed a politically-charged "rock opera". as optimistic as i am about the return of pop music to something deeper, more intelligent and controversial, green day has made a commendable effort, but fallen short. purely musically speaking, american idiot is mediocre. a couple decent songs, but interwoven with a tired theme. it seems the california garage band has taken themselves too seriously. rock and roll has always been an outlet for protest, but the message is misguided when it is intended for twelve year olds who only listen to green day for punk rawk street cred.
a valiant effort, delivered to a nescient audiance.

A fantastic album. I think more people would like it if they would sit down and listen to the message... beacause its a very good one, and people need to hear it. Sure, they may not like George Bush, but tahts not what the album is about. It's about American Youth and the decisions, trials, and tribulations we all go through, and the decisions we have to make. Its telling us to participate if we desire change, instead of having the same old "I dont care if you don't" attitude, and to be an individual, not a phonie.

2004 Album release from "Green Day," the influential punk/alternative rock band. The concept is a rock opera following the lives of youth in a world they portray as media dominated and where they have no voice.
American Idiot is the only album this year where every single song is great.

1.) name of album produced by Green Day, and Adeline records in 2004.

2.) track 1 on the album American Idiot

3.) What Jesus Of Suburbia hates in the album, but unfortunetly turns into, but then brings his act up.

a. An overrated conceptual rock-album by the "punk" band Green Day.

b. 1.) The modern overly-patriotic American. 2.) The modern tasteless mainstream consumer.
a. The new Green Day album "American Idiot" is an overblown album that conveys very few insightful ideas about modern politics and pop culture.

American Idiot is a good album. Sure, not Green Day's best, but they're talking about important issues and not just writing about the same blah blah blah most bands sing about. They've grown up! They have a right to create music about whatever they want. Green Day rocks! And damn, Billie Joe is HOT!
Green Day is an amazing band, with great song writing skills, a hot lead singer with a hot voice and cool political views.
