21st Century Breakdown. Green Day. Released May 15, 2009. 21st Century Breakdown Tracklist. 1. Song of the Century Lyrics. 2. 21st Century Breakdown Lyrics. About 21st Century Breakdown. The follow-up to American Idiot threads the same rock opera ways. Now it’s the story of Christian and Gloria, a Detroit couple going through the challenges present in the . following the presidency of George W. Bush. 21st Century Breakdown Q&A.
21st Century Breakdown expands upon American Idiot in almost every way imaginable. It’s bigger, more ambitious, and somehow more conceptually vague/ridiculous than American Idiot (seriously). But rhyming fighting for and dying for can only be inspiring so many times before sounding trite, and 21st Century Breakdown spirals out of control in its own heroic glory and never regains focus, thus ending with a product that Green Day couldn’t afford to produce: an average.
21st Century Breakdown (song). 21st Century Breakdown" is a song by the American punk rock band Green Day from their album of the same name. Billie Joe Armstrong composed the song, which is mainly based on his personal life and musical influences. The song was released as the fourth single from the album on December 21, 2009.
Like American Idiot, 21st Century Breakdown is a Seventies-style epic, telling the story of two young punk lovers on the run in the wreckage of post-Bush America. The heroes are Christian and Gloria, two kids sold out by the church ( East Jesus Nowhere ), the state ( 21 Guns ) and every adult they’ve ever believed in ( We are the desperate in the decline/Raised by the bastards of 1969 ). All over the album, Green Day combine punk thrash with their newfound love of classic-rock grandiosity - one moment they’re quoting Bikini Kill, the next they’re wailing away like it’s the final minute of Jungleland. The title tune is a multipart opus that pays cheeky tribute to a host of 1970s-heartland radio anthems - Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, Sweet’s Fox on the Run, Mott the Hoople’s All the Young Dudes.
