Buy the ticket, take the ride ( Dr. Hunter S Thompson)

What joy I had when Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown came out. I've been a big fan of them since forever. Eversince they're breakthrough album, American Idiot, these punks from California have become an iconic band. Green Day consists of Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool.

21st Century Breakdown is the story of two lovers Christian and Gloria, who live in post-Bush Jr. era. Armstrong describes Gloria and Christiian. " I look at Christian and Gloria, and it's me. Gloria is one side: this person trying to hold on to this sense of belief, still trying to do good. Whereas Christian is deep into his own demons and victimizing himself over that."

Songs like " East Jesus Nowhere, Peacemaker, or Vive La Gloria, make this album another classic for this punk rock band.

ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
