Oh dear. Is Brandon one of those lead singers who open their mouth and earn a bad reputation for their band?

well Brandon is a big U2 fan, and i know that a number of people here feel the same way about ATYCLB and HTDAAB, so i don't see what the big deal is.

Let's not forget Edge's awesome porn stache during Pop!

I agree. I feel pretty much the same way as him on that subject although I hope U2 don't go back to that sound.. just the attitude. But comparing his own band's brand new album to classics like Achtung Baby & OK Computer just comes off as incredibly arrogant!

While I don't like Green Day or The Killers
I may be in the minority to say that I love Brandon's current outfits

What does he mean he thinks American Idiot may have been misunderstood in the same way Born in the USA was misunderstood? If anything, people misunderstood Born in the USA in the sense they thought it was about how great America was when it was really about how America crapped all over Vietnam veterans when they came home. Does this dofus really think Springsteen meant to write a pro-American song and people misunderstood it as anti-American?

American Idiot? Sounds like a good description of Brandon Flowers.

Actually, I think he looks like he should be in Back to the Future 3.

I understood it as Green Day meant it to be critical of the USA but not anti-American persay....like Born in the USA was.
