They focused & it payed off for them. Only thing I could add is that Green Day are very talented and are being very well marketed in the U.S. and abroad. Also, the theme of AI was right on the money, released at the right time, in the right way.

I have Dookie and AI and enjoy them both...though I think the songs are a better quality on AI...except I skip September because as has been stated in this thread, it's been so overplayed.

Here's hoping for the second best album of 2009.

Christian's Inferno, huh? Can we dare to dream that this is about Bale's meltdown?

I am so legitimately excited for this album. The Wiki stuff sound kick-ass. I hope it's true.

Huh. I had no idea I even started a Green Day thread on Interference.

Pretty excited about the new album. I'm very curious to see how they progress from American Idiot.

Saw them twice on the American Idiot tour...LOVE LOVE LOVED THEM...one of the best shows I had ever seen, very crowd interactive.
Anxious to see what they have conjured up...It needs to be better than the Foxboro Hottubs release though...

Most likely. The concept's fantastic, too bad I don't like their music very much.

Oh, and the producer is Butch Vig. Nice.
