American Idiot (Deluxe Version) Tracklist:
Without a doubt this is a great album but what I fail to understand is that there’s two of the same exact song called Jesus of suburbia. They need to remove the added version of the same exact song because I. Reality you’re wasting money for 2 of the same song featured on the album. Overall the track list is great with additional songs such as governator, shoplifter and etc. just need to make some obvious changes to how it’s set up
This is my favorite album, I will eat myself if a better one somehow comes out. Intense feels (+1) Rhythm I like (+2) Catchy (+1) Life (+2) Not obnoxious (+6) That earns... 12 brownie points. Thank you for this album.
Just going down memory lane from when I was and itty bitty little girl at the age of 2! This was and still is my favorite album! So sad to see how they’ve changed...😭 I miss the Green Day that was like this! My dad had shown me "When September ends" when I was around 2 and a half. My dad and I are so disappointed to see them become a popish band 💔💔💔💔
Nobody gives Homecoming enough credit. It’s so much better than JOS with so much more feeling. It has every member of the band sing. The parts are 1. The Death Of Saint Jimmy (10/10) from the opening vocals to where the song explodes with guitar and drums best part. 2. East 12th Street (8/10) filled with an amazing guitar part and some different styles of music. 3. Nobody Likes You (6/10) for some reason I just don’t like this part. 4. Rock N Roll Girlfriend (9/10) amazing hilarious song by the drummer. 5. We’re Coming Home (8.5/10) great way to end the song with amazing vocals. This is why Homecoming is the greatest song Green Day’s ever written.
I've been wanting this album for a long time now. I was thinking about at work recently and decided to go through with buying it. The only problem I'm having is getting Holiday/Boulevard of Broken Dreams to download, it's "Purchased" but it isn't in my music. It's a shame because I really love those songs. Hopefully I figure out soon.
I don't generally review albums, but I'm making an exception for this one. American Idiot was the first punk rock album I ever listened to, Green Day the first band I loved, & was even the first album I bought for myself. This album changed my outlook on music & who I had to be. I would say without hesitation that it is the most influential album I have ever listened too. My personal favorite is Give Me Novocaine/Shes a Rebel. "Kiss the demons out of my dreams" gives me chills every time. Every song is strong in its own way, from the rock opera stories of Jesus of Suburbia & Homecoming, to the general anger of politics & what's "socially acceptable" in American Idiot & Holiday, to the sadness & loneliness of Whatshername, Wake Me Up When September Ends, & Boulevard of Broken Dreams. I highly recommend this album to anyone who hates what the current political system is (basically any American right now), someone who feels alone, or anyone who needs to just escape to a musical journey, because trust me, this album is definitely worth it.
I love Green Day, and I love this album, but seriously all I want to buy off it is Boulevard of Broken Dreams. But I can't because it's combined with Holiday, and only available with the album. I will not pay $9.99 for one song from an album that I already own over half of for a track that is crappily merged with another track. Only gave it four stars for those awkward combination tracks that nobody wants.
can somebody please tell me where to find a non explicit version / why there isnt a non explicit version on here ? i cant buy explicit songs bc of parents, but american idiot and holiday etc are great. like what ?
My Favorite Music Genre: Punk My Favorite Punk Band: Green Day My Favorite Green Day Album: American Idiot Now, do the math or whatever logic you need to evaluate this STATEMENT, (not opinion) and unless you're battling with Abbey Road, don't you dare even try because you lost the moment you even thought about challenging.
This is the album. Besides Dookie, of course, this is the best album green day has ever had. Listening to them growing up and idolizing over them, nobody could beat this band. Period. Through all there ups and downs and being called a "sellout" or "mainstream" will never affect my love for this band. Long live and love Green Day forever 💕
Green Day has crafted a powerful and timeless album, simply epic in its concept and lyrics. The band have found the post-9/11 world a miserable time, and are expressing their anger towards Bush and the Establishment on powerful political anthems Holiday and the album's sassy title track. Meanwhile, they tell the stories of misunderstood kids striving for acceptance throughout the album. Jesus of Suburbia, one of the greatest songs ever written by and band, pushes the limits of a punk song in the acoustic "Dearly Beloved", and the powerful, emotional "City of the Damned". American Idiot will be admired for years to come as one of music's defining records.
