Can't believe it's the same guys that made Dookie!!!

Just watched the video for Wake Me Up When September Ends. What a good video and song! Green Day have more than proved themselves as good songwriters IMO. American Idiot is arguably the best record of the last 4 or 5 years! I was blown away the first time I heard it... the first time!!! It didn't have to grow on me at all unlike certain other *cough* atyclb *cough*. Holiday is my favorite song of 2004. Whatsername is one of the best closers I've ever heard. Still can't believe that it's the same 3 goofy guys of Dookie and Nimrod fame!

Love WMUWSE! Took me a while to get into BOBD but love it now. Am not too keen on American Idiot. Haven't heard any of the other stuff.

American Idiot [album] certainly seems to have bought Green day a massive new fan base in the UK, so it must be doing something right!

Took me a second to figure out what you meant by WMUWSE.

Holiday, Wake Me Up, Jesus of Suburbia and Whatsername are my favorites here I think. Boulevard is okay. Love 'Are We The Waiting'... a wall of sound so different from their style of punk!

Btw, I realize that there are other threads about American Idiot in the band index. And I know I'm gonna get a bunch of smilies for that! But I can't help it... I just never tire of this album, NEVER! I don't know how they're gonna top this with the next album!

I thought you might, and I especially thought BOBD would confuse people but what can I say? I guess I'm just lazy.

I can't tell if you're serious or joking.

'September' is a great song. Wish the guitar solo in the middle was better, though. "Holiday" is a real good pop song. Right there with "Vertigo" and "Take Me Out" as the best pop/rock songs in recent years, although I'd put those 2 ahead of it. 'Broken Dreams' is nauseating to me. It sounds heavy handed, to me. 'Idiot' is another great song. It's got some force behind it. I like that. All in all, a big step forward for Green Day.

I think this is one of the two weakest songs off the album (the other being "Are We The Waiting") Green Day don't do the mushy ballad thing as well as their three-chord bulldozers, IMO.


And I wouldn't use a mediocre Radiohead album as the benchmark of the last 5 years either..

The 3 songs Ive heard from their new album are pretty decent, although our radio round here kind of spoilt WMUWSE for me by playing it way too much (still, Id rather that then the majority of the crap in the charts to be fair).

All decent songs, but have to say that from the songs Ive heard they aren't as good as they are hyped up to be though IMO.
Nothing Ive heard that would make me want to go out and buy their album anyway.
