Green Day's American Idiot
Green Day's newest album American Idiot is another concept album that actually holds up to its grand concept. Based on the saga of “Jesus of Suburbia,” Green Day explores all that is wrong with America today. The demise of the American dream in a media saturated age finds it's way across the 13 tracks.
The lyrics of the title track say it all:
“Don’t want to be an American Idiot
Don’t want a nation under the new mania
Can you hear the sound of hysteria?”
Now maybe Green Day will tour American Idiot a la Neil Young's Greendale.?!
