The spectacular American Idiot

American Idiot

American Idiot

I love of energetic music but don’t know anything about punk rock. It always seems so angry and shouty; I’d rather listen to indie rock, power pop, bluegrass, or twang.

Despite this ignorance, I recently found myself on Broadway for a performance of American Idiot, Green Day’s punk rock opera—a Christmas gift to Type E.

And it turns out that I love punk rock, at least when it’s choreographed on an amazing set and has strings and vocal harmonies. What a spectacle.

And now I’m the proud owner of my very own punk rock album: American Idiot – The Original Broadway Cast Recording. That counts, right?
