actually,
I'm listening to Jesus of Suburbia now.
it's a very solid 9 minute song.

I may give this album a chance yet. Especially since I have heard some very credible people say it is a good record.

I'm going to see Greenday in Concert on the 7th of May, got 3 GA's, and I hear they kick some serious ass live. I LOVED their Grammy performance, and the American Idiot album is the only one I have in my truck that isn't U2. I figure if Bono can acknowledge them as a talented group (in his acceptance speech at the Grammys) I'm in good company when I say GREENDAY ROCKS!

you will NOT be dissappointed... I saw them in November last year and Green Day put on one HELL of a show, and if you're expecting more of what you saw during the Grammy's you'll that and a LOT more... they're show is a lot more dynamic than what they showed at the grammy's

as for the album, it's phenomenal, it's something I definitely wasn't expecting from them.

I'm very excited about the Greenday concert (even if it now falls under the shadow of the impending U2 concert I didn't expect to get tickets to) The LOUDER I listen to American Idiot the more I love it; I've got to be careful not to screw up my speaker system in the truck. Even worse, the louder I listen to it, the faster I drive... made a 45 minute drive in under 20 minutes the other day (Then I was sad that I only got to listen to 20 minutes worth of the CD)
I really loved Greenday around the time Dookie came out and then, to be honest I all but forgot about them. Then I caught that performance on the Grammy's and bought the CD the next day. I'm totally hooked.

The more I listen to this album the greater it gets. Anyone want to discuss the story of the rock opera? I'd love to hear analysis.

Oh man! American Idiot is fuckin' genius. Album of the year 2004, with respect to U2's HTDAAB. I'm getting really interested in The Who's Quadrophenia because of Green Day. Another album I've owned for ages and I prescribe whole-heartedly is Pink Floyd's The Wall. Genius!!!!!!!!!!!! Concept albums:

Can someone tell me if "Saint Jimmy" and "Jesus of Suburbia" are the same guy? If not, who is Jesus of Surburbia?

and zootlesque, is there a connection between the Jimmy in Quadrophenia and this Saint Jimmy?

um... I don't know much about Quadrophenia My interest has just been piqued, so I'm planning on buying it.

I haven't really analyzed American Idiot too much but my understanding is that St. Jimmy is the main running character who calls himself the jesus of suburbia.

I'm the son of rage and love
the jesus of suburbia...

that's my take on the song...as for the rest of the album, i can't comment as i plan to never hear the rest of it.
it all comes back to this post.

the thing is, i can't even see how boulevard could ever be a guilty pleasure of mine. it's not even catchy, nevermind good.

their popularity befuddles me.

At least mine was funny. This guy is an idiot, probably a republican who can't understand the genius of concept albums like American Idiot.
