Some of the catchiest rock tunes of all time tied together to a pretty cool story
Favorite track: Jesus of Suburbia

I do think this album is slightly overrated by pop punk fans, but it's a good album. It's political message is pretty generic and typical, but the songs themselves are good and the punk opera concept works well.

I think this album is great. Each track blends in effortlessly. I listen to it regularly.

Surprisingly excellent overall, although my attention admittedly waned toward the end.

This album was a big risk for Green Day after their underwhelming album Warning, yet rock and roll is a risk in itself. They hit hard with this hour and few minute long record with smashing singles and two 9 minute songs (Jesus of Suburbia and Homecoming) that develop the plot of the triumphant rock opera.

Saw a dude wearing a fresh new American Idiot T-shirt the other day and I thought, yeah, that's still a good statement. This album, unfortunately, is still all too relevant, isn't it?

This album and Dookie are really the only reason to like Green Day. I agree they sold out and the rest of their music is lame ,but I will always defend the quality of this album no matter what.
