Sounds like Insomniac era GD....

Funny as The Offspring have gone right back in their sound also.... The new album isn`t poppy at all.. well apart from Hit That.

Green Day, sounding like themselves, but it sounds like Billie has been spending a bit too much time with fat mike :)

Certainly politically driven :D

Political Green Day. Beautiful.

Fit? Isn't minority about not conforming and being in the ..... minority .... and berly-alternative?

As for this tune' date=' aye - it's prety mental, i'll definately be purchasing this album - kinda surfy and poppy, but you can tell it's destined for the radio. I like the band -> drum/singing bits, just another decent song, catchy song. As for political, i hope the whole album's not overly 'fuck bush' as they've done pretty well up 'till now without in-yer-face political punk. If it is, i think i won't be as impressed as it just seems to be a onther mainstream band suddenly hitting the political concept.... bandwaggon?

And [b']CHEers for the link :p

Zane Lowe played it twice in a row last night on his Radio 1 show, it's fookin' great.

I think the last two GD albums had proven that they are certainly no bandwagon-jumperoners, they do their own thing. Billie Joe has ALWAYS been political but has never really chosen to sing about it. In the K! interview recently he was talking about that but I cannae mind off the top of my head what exactly he was going on about. I do remember him saying that being directly political like RATM wasn't his thing though.

But no matter what the subject of the songs are, it's still a great tune and as one of the biggest bands on the planet, of course it's gonna be on the radio. I shall be singing along every time :up:

American Idiot Lyrics

Don't wanna be an american idiot

Don't wanna a nation and other new media

And can you hear the sounds of hysteria

The subliminal mind fuck america

Welcome to a new kind of tension

All across the alienation

Everything isn't meant to be ok

Television dreams of tomorrow

We're not the ones that are meant to follow

Plenty of emptyiness to argue

Well maybe, I'm the fuckhead america

I'm not a part of a red neck agenda

Now everybody kill the propaganda

And sing along to the age of paranoia

Don't wanna be an american idiot

One nation controlled by the media

Information, nation hysteria

It's going out to idiot america

good stuff, but about green day being political. i'd say that warning is a bit political, i mean listen to the lyrics "is the cop or am i the one's that's really dangerous" and "question everything or shut up and be a victim of authority"

I've heard people calling Warning a political album, but I find it hard to agree with that. Warning is more about, the more obvious links, of not following everything you're told to do.

Minority could easily be mistaken for a political song, but the lyrics are actually about getting people to not to follow the norm and to be a have a bit more of their own identity. This same themes is present on the whole album, even through to sexual preference in Blood Sex and Booze.

American Idiot is Green Day's first 'full frontal' political album.

Stephen - as for the connection to Ruby Soho, I'm not really hearing it..I've tried listening to Ruby Soho a few times to make the connection but can't..Ah well :)

I'd love them to go backwards in their sound :) But not all the way...the insomniac era would be perfect :)

I certainly wasn't keen on Warning. The singles were terrible and the album only slightly better..

Awesome!!! What an excellent return to form!! Really back into Green Day lately, American Idiot sounds pretty similar to Nice Guys Finish last.....but still ok....Favorite son would sit more nicely on the Warning album (which is my fave).....lovely guitar tones too...yum....will no doubt track down the whole album :D
