American Idiot is the seventh studio album by Green Day. It was released on 2004-09-01 on CD and produced by Rob Cavallo and Green Day and published by Reprise. The album has a pop punk and alternative rock sound with the songs forming a semi-cohesive narrative often described as a rock opera.
I bought this album around 2005, after it had already become popular and received a lot of airplay. I was enjoying the songs, and enjoyed them even more when I could listen to them at my leisure. In particular, I really enjoy the anti-authoritarianism of the songs.
I own this album on CD.
All lyrics are written by Billie Joe Armstrong except portions of track 12. All vocals sung by Armstrong.
This is the order in which I enjoy the songs from this album, and their individual song ratings.
|1||Jesus of Suburbia||10|
|5||Give Me Novacaine||7|
|6||Wake Me Up When September Ends||7|
|7||Boulevard of Broken Dreams||7|
|8||She's a Rebel||6|
|11||Are We the Waiting||5|
The album's total score is 1,009.
