ten years of american idiot
I bought it in spring 2005 and for me, that’s the album everything began with. not only green day wise but music-wise. of course, there were other CDs before but AI felt special, bigger. at the beginnig, I couldn’t really understand it even though I liked the singles. after some time I liked it more and more until it became my favorite album. also my interest in punk rock grew and everything I listened to in the last 9 years had something in common with this album. angry stuff, funny stuff, slower stuff, pop and some big ass rock n roll.
This write-up is basically everything I feel about American Idiot. This album changed the way I looked at music and has had a profound influence on my life and my tastes. I am forever grateful to it!
Happy 10th Birthday American Idiot!
