21st Century Breakdown: Green Day’s critique of the world

21st_Century_Breakdown_Album_Cover

Green Day’s newest album “21st Century Breakdown” is already out in stores since yesterday, May 15. The album contains 18 tracks which still follow the rock opera style of their 2004 album “American Idiot.”

In a post at www.greendayauthority.com,  Billie Joe Armstrong, Green Day vocalist and guitarist describes their tenth studio album as “a snapshot of the era in which we live as we question and try to make sense of the selfish manipulation going on around us, whether it be the government, religion, media or frankly any form of authority.”

“Created over the past three years, 21st Century Breakdown veers from hard-charging garage rockers to oversize Queen-style grandeur. Chronicling the life of a young couple as they deal with the mess our 43rd president left behind”, the band said in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

Here’s the official music video of “Know Your Enemy”, one of the songs in the album.
