The cult “American Idiot” by Green Day is now of legal age!

Last week, one of the most popular albums of the last 20 years celebrated its 18th birthday. I’m talking about the album “American Idiot” by Green Day. It is worth noting that the album is as iconic as it is accidental, because it was created when the material for the album “Cigarettes and Valentines” was stolen from the recording studio. The haphazardly created album became a hit, selling 10 million copies in the United States alone. Billie Joe Armstrong – the singer and songwriter of the band Green Day did not spare criticism on the album of the then President of the United States, George Bush.

Regardless of political sympathies, each of us has stomped our feet many times to such songs as “Jesus of Suburbia” or the title “American Idiot”. Often among music critics there is a belief that the last “revolutionary” and at the same time something changing album in “Rock’n’roll” music was “Nevermind” by Nirvana. However, there are many voices that the dot should be put just 13 years later with the album “American Idiot”. Let’s stick to this version.

On the occasion of the birthday of “American Idiot” it is impossible not to say a few words to the band itself. Green Day entered the music market in 1987 and was initially perceived by listeners like Offspring in two ways. Is it punk or not punk? It was much more melodic music than, for example, SEX PISTOLS or punk bands from Poland. However, they quickly sealed their position on the music market. In 1994, the album “Dookie” sold 15 million copies. Looking at the current music market, whether in Poland or in the world, it is hard to imagine such a sale. Green Day started a new wave that continues today.

At one point, every American high school had its Green Day, and fashion spilled over into Europe as well. Inspirations by the California band could be heard in later years among such bands as:

Blink- 182 – American punk rock band. The group was founded in Poway in 1992 and was active until 2005. Then the members of Blink suspended their activities and formed their own bands. We would love to hear you again together.

SUM 41 – the band is valued for organizing long concert tours (on average 300 concerts a year), often lasting more than one and a half years[ThegrouphasbeennominatedfortheJunoAwardsseventimes(theCanadianequivalentoftheGrammyAwards)winningittwice-forthebestbandin2002andforarockalbumin2005DerycksingerJasonWhibleyisalsothehusbandofAvrilLavigneThecoupledivorcedin2009[Grupabyłasiedmiokrotnienominowanado NagrodyJuno (kanadyjskiodpowiednik NagrodyGrammy)dwukrotniebędącjejlaureatem-zanajlepszyzespółw2002rokuizaalbumrockowyw2005rokuWokalistazespołuDeryckJasonWhibleytotakżepóźniejszymążAvrilLavignePararozwiodłasięw2009roku

Green Day inspired and inspires not only rebellious boys, but also women, as exemplified by the legendary Avril Lavigne. She appeared on the music scene in 2002 with the release of her debut album Let Go. In 2006, Canadian Business Magazine ranked her as the seventh most influential Canadians in Hollywood. She has sold over 90 million copies of her albums worldwide.

The spirit of the Green Day band can also be heard in the music of a young Slovakian girl – Karin Ann. The uncompromising representative of the Z generation is known for her strong lyrics. Her work to date has touched and still touches upon the more difficult aspects of entering adulthood, including gender equality, toxic relationships, mental health and cyberbullying. We wish Karin good luck in your career development.,

According to the old success, we keep our fingers crossed so that Punk does not die, and everyone mentioned above, that they keep recording new albums. Punk’s not dead!
