This is the way music should be going.  Instead of a nice, radio-friendly (i.e. boring) album, Green Day has put out one of the most innovative and addictive cd's of the new decade.  The title song, which many reviewers are slamming, is the perfect tune to open the album. From the catchy chorus to the excellent drum track, and the great guitar work, American Idiot just clicks!  You will not be able to get this tune out of your head! "Jesus of Suburbia" is amazing. The time changes, the lyrics, the variety of muscial styles.....you just have to hear this tune.  If you are looking for an answer to today's American Idol-Jessica-Ashlee-Simpson-Spears-Timberlake no-talents...then treat yourself to some music that will get your blood pumping...music that features actual musicians.  Pick up American Idiot!
