Released in 2004, American Idiot is the seventh studio album from the American punk rock band Green Day. A concept album dubbed a 'punk rock opera' by the band members, the album follows the story of Jesus of Suburbia, a lower-middle-class American adolescent anti-hero. The album expresses the disillusionment and dissent of a generation that came of age in a period shaped by tumultuous events such as the Iraq War.
American Idiot marked a career comeback for Green Day. It charted in 27 countries, peaked at number one in 19, and sold 16 million copies worldwide.
The album includes the singles 'American Idiot', 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams', 'Holiday', 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' and 'Jesus of Suburbia'.
