Green Day

“American Idiot”

While they have no doubt gone mainstream long ago, there is a bit of deserving credit to be given to the trio known as Green Day.  Instead of releasing a completely safe and poppy album, they decided to write a “punk-rock opera”, complete with multiple songs in excess of 9-minutes (not exactly radio friendly).  We all know the hits that this album spawned, but kudos for the band still holding on to some artistic integrity.

Grade: C+

Favorite Track: American Idiot

Second Favorite: St. Jimmy
