2005 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album!
The seventh studio album by Green Day was co-produced with Rob Cavallo. It was one of the most anticipated and controversial albums of the year in 2004 when it was originally released. Scathing yet self-effacing as it tells the tale of Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, American Idiot is a punk rock epic. Armstrong summed up the album: "Rock n' Roll can be dangerous and fun at the same time."
"A bold, polished punk opera." - Entertainment Weekly
"They're the biggest, most successful, punk band the world has ever seen. What's more, Green Day's next album may well be their masterpiece." - Kerrang!
Green Day took home a Grammy for Best Rock Album at the 2005 Grammy Awards for American Idiot.
"No song captured the rancid zeitgeist of the Bush era like this Clash-style rave-up, which bashed the USA's 'redneck agenda.' The starting point for Green Day's punk opera, later a Broadway musical, 'Idiot' signaled the band's evolution into righteously angry political rockers. 'We did everything we could to piss people off,' said Billie Joe Armstrong, who often performed the song in a George W. Bush mask." - Rolling Stone
