...until 2004, when Green Day made a comeback with the rock opera ''Music/AmericanIdiot''. (Actually, they were recording another album in 2003 named ''Cigarettes and Valentines'', [[WhatCouldHaveBeen but the master tracks got stolen.]]) The album is very anti-establishment in tone and [[{{Anvilicious}} frequently criticises President Bush]], as the Iraq War was going on at the time. ''American Idiot'' marked a complete departure from their earlier pop/punk style and [[BrokenBase alienated a portion of their fanbase]], although it also won over new fans. ''Music/AmericanIdiot'' also received controversy for being "Anti-American," despite only a few songs having any sort of political message. Interestingly, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff the album was very popular in Europe]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Mondegreen}}: Look up any live video, especially where Billie's smashed off his ass, and you can barely tell what he's saying if you haven't heard the studio versions of the songs beforehand, or looked up the lyrics at any points. Even on some studio recordings of songs, he can sometimes be hard to understand. Usually, though, he's pretty clear in what he's saying in most other studio recordings.

**"Still Breathing" is also an example, as Billie will have the Audience sing "My Way to You" at the end of the chorus.



**21st Century Breakdown's title track and closing track open and close with the same riff.
**Revolution Radio gives us Somewhere Now, a classic rock-inspired song about war, politics, and online society, and "Forever Now" a fast-paced Rock Opera about Billie Joe himself which features a reprise of "Somewhere Now"



** After ''American Idiot'', however, oh boy. "Jesus of Suburbia" is just over nine minutes, "Homecoming" is just under ten, "21st Century Breakdown" is just under 7, "American Eulogy" is just over six, and "Dirty Rotten Bastards" is just under seven.

**From Revolution Radio, "Somewhere Now" fades into "Bang Bang", and "Youngblood" fades into "Too Dumb To Die"



** "Basket Case" is a up-tempo and fun SanitySlippageSong. "Good Riddance", which many people think of as a ballad, is actually a BreakupSong, wishing your lover to leave forever and never come back. and "21 Guns," is a song about peace and the evils of war.

And "Revolution Radio" is a surprisingly upbeat rallying call inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.

**"Ordinary World"


Added DiffLines:

**Most of American Idiot is a one to the Bush administration, while many on Revolution Radio are used against then-presidential candidate, now president Donald Trump.

* GriefSong:
** "Ha Ha You're Dead" is a subversion for obvious reasons.
** "J.A.R." plays it straight, being about Mike Dirnt's old friend who died in a car crash at age 19.
** "Amy" plays this trope straight, as it was written as a tribute to Music/AmyWinehouse.

** Billie Joe likes to swear in concerts as well ("And don't fucking wear it out!"), specially if [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g9zogQOmQVM&feature=player_embedded the organization screws the band and cuts their concert short.]]
*** The rant is made all the more memorable for the fact that Billie Joe says "fuck" and its variants 21 times, rips on Music/JustinBieber, and smashes his guitar repeatedly into the ground until it breaks apart. Interestingly enough, he checked into rehab the following day to be treated for "Substance Abuse".

* AwesomeMcCoolname: Almost literally with Tré Cool, meaning "very cool" in French. His real name, Frank Edwin Wright III, is also impressive.

Added DiffLines:

* RadioVoice:
** "Holiday".
--> ''The representative from California has the floor...''
** The beginning of "Bang Bang".


Added DiffLines:

* WalkieTalkieStatic: "Song of the Century" and the beginning of "American Eulogy", since the two use the same tune as well.
** Whatsername's song in the beginning of "Letterbomb".

'''Green Day''' is an American PopPunk[=/=]AlternativeRock band from the [[UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco Bay Area]] (Oakland, to be precise). Around 1987, Billie Joe Armstrong (lead vocals/guitar) and Mike Dirnt (bass) formed the band Sweet Children; in 1988, John Kiffmeyer (Al Sobrante) joined as the drummer.
