Review: Green Day – American Idiot (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Green Day – American Idiot.

This track was released in 2004 on an album of the same name.

A major element of this track is the message the lyrics deliver. While not every element in the lyrics makes sense, it is still more than capable of delivering the general message where the singer is sick of the country he lives in and that he feels the country does not represent his views or beliefs. Of course, describing the lyrics is a lot more boring than how they are actually delivered, but that is the gist of it. One thing to note is that this track was released around the George W. Bush era in America, so that will help explain some of the lyrics. Still, even today, portions of lyrics can still apply today such as the criticism handed to the general American media.

Another great element in this track is the guitar solo part way through. I thought this was very nicely done and added a nice dimension to the track.

The vocals are, of course, not to be forgotten as I thought they were also a great part of the track.

Overall, I thought this was a great track. While it may be fading a little bit into history for some, it’s still a well produced track.
