Best Songs From 21st Century BreakdownThe top ten best songs from Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown.
The Top Ten
A masterpiece. Easily the best song on 21st Century Breakdown, and better than many of Green Day's other songs. Shows that they can still be a force to be reckoned with.
Best song since boulevard of broken dreamsV 1 Comment
This is that song that sums up the whole album even though it is the second track of the album. Kind of like Jesus of Suburbia. Both are awesome songs.
This is by far my favorite song on this album. The lyrics are awesome; I don't understand why this isn't at least in the top three. - treyanthonyyeah
Love the song, it's my favorite song
This and East Jesus Nowhere are the only songs on the album I genuinely love.V 1 Comment
The adrenaline in this song is addictive. This song is definitively the best song on this album.
This song is WAY better than "21 Guns". "21 Guns" is just another ballad that got popular because it was a SINGLE.
A fire burns today, of blasphemy and genocide, the silence of decay, will infiltrate the faith fanatics.
"21 Guns" is terrible. This is way better.V 1 Comment
The military march type of sound at the beginning is awesome. Not my favorite on the album but is definitely up there.V 1 Comment
This is an awesome lyrical song off of this album...1. Know Your Enemy 2. East Jesus Nowhere 3. Horseshoes and Handgrenades 4. The Static Age 5. 21st Century Breakdown...my top 5 off of this album.
This is clearly the best song on the whole album. 21st century Breakdown for the win
This song is so heart pumping. It is completely amazing!
This is a completely underrated song. It is no doubt the best song of the album that doesn't get the good reviews and credibility as it should get. Also, why the heck is Know Your Enemy 4th, that song deserves to be 8th here instead of this remarkable song.V 1 Comment
The only song on the album, along with 21 Guns, I'd really like to call a masterpiece. Much better than most of the other songs. - BeeBlue
Beautiful, bittersweet and powerful. One of their all time best
Just when it says 'Know Your Enemy' I just get a chill. A brilliant song with great lyrics and great instrumentals. - UltraFX
Great Song! Well Written, Beautiful MelodyV 2 Comments
This is most definitely not my favorite. But it is very catchy at moments and fits 3 songs into a good length. They brought back they tune of Song of the Century which was cool. Man I gave it a review not an opinion
Amazing, Jesus of Suburbia-like transitions and was a very daring idea. Mike Dirnt on modern world is by far his greatest singing on any track and this song just makes you want to riot
My favorite, indeed. It's also a huge earworm. - somelifeonaplanetV 1 Comment
Really sounds like an old school Green Day punkish kind of song. Billie Joe has also said this was his favorite on the album because the album was nothing like their previous work because of huge amounts of piano of this album. This song goes back to the basic rocking Green Day songs and is the strongest most memorable song here
I like this song with before the lobotomy I love the whole album
One of the best songs of the past 10 years
It scares me that this song wasnt in the top 5. By far my favorite song on this album. Lyrics with a deep meaning that can make you rethink your life. Shame on the people who don't like this somg. I love every song on this album but 21 guns is far from the best.V 1 Comment
This song is so good! I requested it at my prom but they didn't play it :(
My favourite from 21CB. It even trumps my old favourite (now second favourite), American Eulogy.V 1 Comment
One of the best songs by Green Day and they perform it live... Better than east jesus nowhere and should be on no.2
Definitely an underrated song, this should be higher upV 1 Comment
Why is this song way down here? This song has an incredible guitar rifd and the whole song is incredible!
This song is too underrated and it should get so much more recognition
21 guns is my favorite but this should be higher
3) Little Girl
4) Know Your Enemy - ABD33
So catchy, I love it. - YoshiDragon240V 1 Comment
Why is this so low? I figure at least top 5 with this song!V 1 Comment
Great song better then the other viva la gloria
This song is a masterpiece. Super underrated and way better than the other Viva La Gloria. The way it is played almost makes it a little intimidating.V 1 Comment
One of the most underrated songs of the album. It's just incredible! Great guitar, drums, and the piano riff at the end gives me goosebumps.
I really don't understand how such a brilliant song has been voted way down here... Definitely better than Christian's inferno, last of the aAmerican girls and last night on earth in my opinion!
Don't listen to these other people. This song has one of the most kickin choruses ever. Woahh Christians inferno!
Absolutely awful. Possibly the worst Green Day song ever made.
We all know the moment when you put on the album for the first time, and you hear the static. Then, Billie Joe's clear and flowing voice starts the ballad sounding track. It may not be the best track but it is the best song to introduce you to the album. - gavinscousin
Why do I love this song so much? The slight static over it, the lyrics, the style of it. I just can't help but love it. - UltraFX
Lights Out, while not making the final cut, is still an awesome song.
Awesome song! Really catchy. It didn't quite make the final cut for 21CB but it was on the Know Your Enemy EP.
