Green Day first achieved popularity in the 1990s with a string of successful albums. Following disappointing sales of their sixth album, Warning (2000), the band took a break before recording their next album, titled Cigarettes and Valentines. The recording process was cut short when the album’s master tapes were stolen. Rather than re-record that material, the group decided to start over. A concept album dubbed a punk rock opera by the band members, American Idiot follows the story of Jesus of Suburbia, a lower-middle-class American adolescent anti-hero.

Hey Green Day. I've been listening to your music for around five years now, and I can say that although I like a good amount of songs from other artists, your music is the only music that consistently strikes a chord with me, from 1039 to RevRad. Somehow, nearly everything you guys make is quality material. Anyways, I normally don't ask questions in AMAs since there's such a slim chance that I'd ever be answered, but I'm asking here because this is probably my closest chance at interaction with you guys, since I can't afford concerts and stuff like that. Huge Green Day fan here, and super stoked to see you guys play at the Aragon Ballroom on Oct. 23rd. I am taking my little brother along with me to his first Green Day concert ever. Couple questions for you. In this Rolling Stone interview Billie mentioned that he plays bow guitar on songs like Outlaws and Forever now.
Some of my other favourites album by album would be: -Haven't heard anything from their first two albums. Dookie gave us the aforementioned Basket Case, Welcome to Paradise, When I Come Around, Longview and She. I must say imo all the songs on the album are great. I've only heard bits and pieces from Insomniac though what I have heard I thought was decent, not amazing but not the worst that could be done. One of their other signature hits, this song is about being lonely and alone because you feel no one is there for you. The tune of this song really fits the lyrics. Many Green Day fans know this song, probably the first Green Day song they heard. I personally think all their songs are the best, but I am going for the songs everyone (and fans) love(s).
Revolution Radio is Green Day‘s first album in 15 years with no extra twist – no high concept, no triple LP – but it’s full of fiery politics and big emotions
