    • 1428 Words
    • 6 Pages

    Green Day launched American Idiot in September 2004. Soon after it’s launch the album became a massive hit – one of the most revered and critically acclaimed albums of Green Day. This Album is a story about an “idiot American” teenage boy – Jesus of Suburbia (JoS). JoS is a representation of everything the typical American outcasted youth is. He does drugs and drinks ("to fall in love and fall in debt, to alcohol and cigarettes") He's depressed, unloved and hates his Mom (and his step-dad, Brad) JoS is a cynical character who hates his small town. He leaves the suburbs for the city – hoping to find a new life for himself. There he meets St. Jimmy – who introduces him to a life of drugs, hangovers and homelessness. He also finds his love Whatsername there. Later we find that St. Jimmy is no one but JoS’s devilish alter ego that he created to protect himself from his weaker “innocent” self. Eventually, Whatsername gets tired of JoS’s loneliness, addiction and cynicism and leaves him alone.
