'''''21st Century Breakdown''''' is the eighth studio album by Music/GreenDay, released in 2009. It was released as a follow-up to their comeback album ''Music/AmericanIdiot'', produced by Butch Vig of {{Garbage}} and ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' fame. The plot follows [[BattleCouple two lovers]] named [[MeaningfulName Christian]] and [[ThemeNaming Gloria,]] who are followed in the story as they witness the many new trials faced by the common man in the recent years of America (Mainly told in first-person from the point of Christian). Several of the themes looked at by [[AntiHero Christian]] (Who is [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation most definitely *not*]] [[WesternTerrorists a terrorist]]) include [[CorruptChurch religion,]] [[AmericanPoliticalSystem politics,]] and [[BestServedCold vengeance,]] along with being heavily involved in his relationship with Gloria. He is very cynical about most large organizations, and feels he and Gloria must stand up for TheEveryman. Gloria, meanwhile, is trying to hold onto her original beliefs while trying to help Christian as well.

He is very cynical about most large organizations, and feels he and Gloria must stand up for TheEveryman. Gloria, meanwhile, is trying to hold onto her original beliefs while trying to help Christian as well. \n The album saw the band's best chart performance to date, reaching #1 in various areas around the world such as America, the UK, and Europe. It additionally won the GrammyAward for Best Rock Album. Critics were generally favorable to the album, while nitpicking was common around the album's concept and its lingering sense of familiarity compared to ''Idiot''.

The album is split into three acts: Act I: Heroes And Cons (from the title track to "Last Night On Earth"), Act II: Charlatans And Saints (from "East Jesus Nowhere" to "Restless Heart Syndrome") and Act III: Horseshoes And Handgrenades (from "Horseshoes And Handgrenades" to "See The Light").

* ClusterFBomb: We get five in "Horseshoes and Handgrenades". The rest of the album is pretty clean, save for one F-Bomb in "Before the Lobotomy" and "The Static Age" each. "American Eulogy" would be the next dirtiest song, with one F-Bomb, one S-Bomb and one use of "nigger", which caused screams of outrage among black Green Day fans.
