I enjoy Jesus Of Suburbia more than Homecoming. And sometimes when I'm impatient to get to Whatsername, I skip Homecoming.

I don't look at Whatsername as the closer - I see it more as an epilogue. Homecoming finishes the album - I consider American Idiot one long piece of music that has a beginning, a middle, and an end. Homecoming is the end.

Whatsername, to me, almost sounds like it takes place later. Kind of like looking back at the events of the album itself. So in that sense, it works well. For me, anyway.

You're right! Never thought of it that way! I see Whatsername like A Day In The Life or Her Majesty, something that occurs after the show comes to a close.

It's the only think I dislike in the album... the ending couple Homecoming/Whatsername. Not that theu're bad songs, but they're weaker and Jesus Of Suburbia is much better than Homecoming.
