Whatsername

Found a pretty decent fan made video for it on youtube.

Am I the only person here that loves American Idiot (the album) to death? I swear I've seen other people like bsp talk about their love for it before. As much as I liked Dookie, it was quite juvenile in parts. This is mature, ambitious and rocking Green Day at it's finest! Letterbomb and Whatsername are such perfect rock songs! But I can understand if the videos ruined this album for some of you. The videos could have been so much better!

You're definitely not the only one!...I've taken some time away from Listening to Green Day of late...but I put on American Idiot on Sunday afternoon...and its been a few months since i've played it in full..and wow...yep its such a good album!

Here's hoping for a follow up in late 07 but more likely 2008.

Nice video I thought the album was really good, in fact I still think that. I overplayed it a bit and consequently haven't listened to it in a few months - but it really is fantastic, and it really irritates me, the people who refuse to like it because it bought them back into the mainstream or whatever Meh, their loss.

Apparently they've got some huge album planned, and they're also doing the soundtrack to the new Simpsons movie, which I'm a bit dubious about

Yeah, I think they are covering the theme song.

This is still one of my favorite albums from the past 5 years. People dislike Green Day mainly because of their earlier output, but American Idiot is a classic and one of the best albums of this decade - I don't care what anyone else says.

It's one of the only albums in the last few years that I listen from start to finish without skipping any tracks.

While I'm not sure if it's a classic just yet— simply because it still is fairly recent— I believe that this album will stand the test of time and still sound good years from now.

I keep thinking this topic is about Whitesnake.

This will kill my credibility, but I must say that I really, really liked American Idiot as well. Whatsername is one of the worst songs, unfortunately, but it's decent. Every album they did before it just sucked, however.

Why are you seeing liking Green Day as losing credibility? Guilty pleasure? Different music move different people.

I agree too that Whatsername is one of my least favourites on the album.

But it's fun to sing along to and has a great ending!

It's not a bad song, exactly...it's just that Homecoming is so much better, and Whatsername is a bit disappointing as a closer.
