    When you're so hellbent on proving that American Idiot is about anyone holding Right Wing views, but fail to see the irony of it all.

    I wanted to be American so I could say something like "Fuck America" because patriotism for me is kinda dumb in most cases.

    1. "American Idiot" - An introduction to Jimmy's (the main character's) views on the state of the nation

    2. "Jesus Of Suburbia" - This illustrates Jimmy's life at home (before he leaves for the city). He calls himself the Jesus of Suburbia, and basically he thinks the world sucks. Some people think he's got a mental disorder (like multiple personality, which is quite possible)... but he's obviously confused and pessimistic and sick of suburban life. In the end (Part 5: "Tales of Another Broken Home"), he leaves home & sets out for the city.

    3. "Holiday" - At this point, I think Jimmy is just kinda running around doing whatever, plus the song is another political statement.

    4. "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" - He gets depressed. He's lonely, sad, possibly suicidal, whatever.

    5. "Are We The Waiting" - I think this is the song that confuses a lot of people when trying to break down the story. It's like a transition between the beginning and the rest of the album, when Jimmy is still trying to find himself or something. It's kinda hopeful, to me.

    6. "St. Jimmy" - First, let's get this straight: Some people say Jesus of Suburbia & St. Jimmy are two different people, some say they're just different versions of the same person. I am in the latter category. I think St. Jimmy is just Jimmy's other personality in the album. In "Are We The Waiting", it says "the Jesus of Suburbia is a lie"... now Jimmy turns into a hardcore, possibly drug-dealing/suicidal punk.

    7. "Give Me Novacaine" - Drugs.

    8. "She's A Rebel" - Jimmy meets Whatsername, the perfect girl for him. The song sums up her character pretty well...

    9. "Extraordinary Girl" - In the CD booklet, some of the lyrics are in Jimmy's handwriting, and some are in Whatsername's writing. The song describes their difficult relationship.

    10. "Letterbomb" - This is Whatsername's letter to Jimmy. She flat-out tells him "you're not the Jesus of Suburbia, the Saint Jimmy is a figment of your father's rage and your mother's love". She leaves him, fed up with the town & him.

    11. "Wake Me Up When September Ends" - In the storyline of American Idiot, this is Jimmy mourning the loss of Whatsername after she leaves. The song is about Billie Joe Armstrong's father dying (he died of cancer on September 1, 1982 when Billie Joe was 10 years old)

    12. "Homecoming" - With Whatsername gone and no one else around, Jimmy is unsure what to do. He has to figure some stuff out. The lyrics "Jimmy died today, he blew his brains out into the bay, in the state of mind, it's my own private suicide" mean Jimmy "killed" St. Jimmy (the self-destructive side of him, sort-of). "Rock 'N Roll Girlfriend" is a postcard from Jimmy's friend Tunny, wherever he is. By the end of the song, Jimmy realizes what he needs to do, and he goes home to Jingletown.

    13. "Whatsername" - He's been back home for a while, and he's no longer the Jesus of Suburbia or St. Jimmy, he's just Jimmy. But he still thinks about Whatsername. I think this song is kind-of a reflection on his time in the city and what he lost.

    Эта мелодия признана самой опасной для прослушивания за рулем авто: ее ритм более 189 ударов в минуту. Под нее участники водительского эксперимента ехали в среднем на 8-10 км/ч быстрее. Делайте выводы ))
