Americana is a Rock Opera/Concept Album (and Oddly Prescient):

and it holds together better as one than American Idiot.

The concept/theme: life, politics, and culture in the United States in the 90s.

As for the odd prescience: These lines from the title track: My rights are denied By those least qualified.

This was before the 2000 election and the Patriot Act, yet they are also a perfect response to them.

What is this "Americana?"
Will my weary soul find release for a while?

An album by The Offspring. The singles off of it that got radio and MTV play were "Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)", "She's Got Issues", "Why Don't You Get a Job?", and "The Kids Aren't All Right". It came out around '99 or early aught aught.

sane enough
It's Andrew Lloyd Webber for sure.
The rest is still unwritten...
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
