Trivia / American Idiot

  • The Other Darrin: Inverted in the musical when Billie Joe filled in for, and eventually replaced, Tony Vincent as St. Jimmy.
  • Special Guest: Kathleen Hanna (of Bikini Kill and Le Tigre) sings the opening to "Letterbomb."
  • Unintentional Period Piece: The title track captures a lot of the despair many young left-wingers felt at the seeming invincibility of the Republicans and George W. Bush in the '00s.
