Tales of Green Day Back after filling the past 10 years with mediocre albums Green Days American Idiot snagged six 2004 Grammy nominations and won a 2004 Grammy for Best Rock Album Some people call their music punk rock which makes me immediately thinking about the songs which are popular within the groups of wild children who appear in the streets If their music is only expressing the craze of adolescences and has not got much meaning then why are so many people flooding to the record stores and the Internet to purchase and download American Idiot Ive been wondering the same question until I actually heard their songs American Idiot-the anti-war anthem American Idiot was recorded around the time that United States began their invasion on Iraq and this song was also written due to the same event It is very obvious that the invited reading of this song is that Americans invasion on Iraq is so wrong it is such an unwise thing to do People who are supporting George W Bushs idea are all blindfolded by his propaganda Green Day conveyed the message of intense dislike for war and President Bush by belting out Dont want to be an American idiot Dont want a nation under the new mania And can you hear the sound of hysteria Throughout the whole song there are quite a few words and phrases such as American idiot new mania hysteria redneck agenda and paranoia which cogently speak out the disagreement to war and of course audiences are strongly positioned Also in the song it says One nation controlled by the media It is a condemnation to Bushs government of how they controlled the media to fool peoples views Every word in the song is so full of emotions each of them is like a stone pounding on our hearts From the countless awards which have been won by this song
