Top Ten Songs from Green Day's American Idiot678rob754
The Top Ten
So glad this is number 1
Every part of this song means the world to me and described most of my teenage life. I feel like I was raised by American Idiot and jesus of suburbia was the first lesson- the most memorable one!
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care!
In truth pretty much every song on this album is really good, just straight up quality rock. I think this one remains the most epic and each part is really perfect for conveying the emotion of the song. Besides it's a long song for a Green Day song. You gotta give em props for doing something different and big. They tried it again on down the album with homecoming, however I don't believe it was executed as well. Though it was cool to have dirnt and tre singing on different sections. Still I think this song kind of sets up the whole story and feel for what you are going to hear on the rest of the album. - LordJosh
I really like their idea of adding 2 medleys into the album. JoS is my favorite medley over Homecoming, personally. I like the introduction, Part I, the slow tempoed City of the Damned, the fast paced I Don't Care, the melodic Dearly Beloved, and the outro T.O.A.B.H.! - randomguy2005
This song is just so good... I could hardly speak when I first heard it! This entire song just speaks to me in so many ways! It draws me in with the beginning half, the second half is just so calming to me and it makes me want to listen to the rest of it. This was executed very well and each section had it's charms. It is one of the best songs on the album. The whole album is very good thought.
This is not a song.. its an inspiration for many people to face life no matter what... what is it doing at no. 2? This song is THE HEART of the album... it brings any heartbroken and depressed person back on his feet to face the world! I WALK ALONE I WALK A! the best song ever made!
I LOVE IT
I HEARD IT ON VH1 PLAYLIST AND FELL IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG... I REALLY LISTEN TO THIS SONG A LOT
I think the reason why this is voted the Best Green Day song and not best in this album is because JoS give more and is the most important song in the context of the story of JoS - SeagullBoi
JOS is awesome and is definitely in my top 10 favourite Green Day songs but Boulevard of Broken Dreams is just too good. The song is just too damn catchy to resist. It was my first full song learned on acoustic guitar. Like it's the highlight of the album in my opinion
Its insanely incredible
This list should go
2.Boulevard of broken dreams
4.Jesus of suburbia
5.Give me Novocaine/she's a rebel
But every song on this album is still amazing - Legend1221
Even though it's one of their best songs is generally underrated though it is amazing the guitar riff is just WOW the solo blows you away not to mention the meaning full lyrics
Oh my god my favorite song ever it has never changed since I listened to holiday my favorite song to play on guitar. It also has such a sick riff don't forget the awesome drums and bass you hear during the bridge dirmit rocks that bass
Such a beautiful song Billy made for his father that died not long before
Emotionally moving I wish I could go to sleep during September, hell all of the year...
the best song from the album. Not political but deals with the emotional pain from the loss of a father, this is music at its most beautifully fragile
This should be number 1
This is the best song ever
All you American idiots that made this f-ing SIXTH on this list are obviously deaf
How could you not fall for the incredibly catchy riff
Easily the best track of the album. Everything is perfectly balanced. Catchy with a powerful message. I'm a jazz guy, but truthfully, this is one hell of a song.
Great song, especially when its live it is quality
WHAT!? Are you people stupid or deaf!? This is easily the best song, listen to the 2nd half of this song, it's so powerful!
I'll be quite honest, all of the other songs are great and that's what makes the album so wonderful. But the way this album starts out and how it transitions into that epic middle part ("remember... Whatever...") it just is an emotional song for me and I connected to it way more than any of the other songs. It's so powerful and one of the best endings to an album that can be done and it get's me teary-eyed every time I hear that line "forgetting you but not the times" but maybe that's just me. Either way amazing song! Haha
Remember... Whatever... It feels like forever ago! I love this part of the song! So powerful and strong! Green Day forever!
Whatsername is definitely the best song. This brings me to tears every time, the song is so deep yet so powerful and extraordinary in every way possible. Billie's singing just makes it even better
In my opinion... Best Green Day song ever off of their best album ever. And for all of you fools who say that American idiot and so forth are not "Pure Green Day", SHUT UP! Really just shut up. Green Day recorded this album and this album has a bigger fan base than all the others. Trust me this is one of the only albums that is globally liked by pop music fans and Death Metal/Screamo fans such as myself. This song as well as letter bomb and almost this whole album just takes me out of this world to a place where I can think and get my head together. Anyway this song has a very soft and very nice intro then packs a massive punch with the first verse all the way to part two. Part one makes me feel really happy to be alive and when he sings "Jimmi died today, blew his brains out into the bay" I really connect to that because I have some friends who are considering that. The somebody get me out of here part that follows really describes how I feel when I'm in a very ...more
Best green day song of all time. Better than J.O.S with more feeling plus every member of the band sings, what more can you ask for?
Better than Jesus of suburbia. Just go for it one time...
I THINK THIS IS THE BEST Green Day SONG AND ALSO BETTER THAN JESUS OF SUBURBIA... VOTE FOR IT...
I hate To have this song at 8 but in my opinion all of the songs are great and they should all be #1
At this point in the album (she's a rebel/extraordinary girl/letterbomb) the singles try) really peak. These three songs fit together so well in their own story and in aiding the overarching story of the album, they succeed. Jesus of suburbia is and will remain number 1 but for pure rock fun, nothing can beat this (and she's a rebel) track
Letterbomb is easily one of the best songs on the alblums. Don't get me wrong, extraordinary girl is good too, but letterbomb really almost as good as holiday/boulevard, American idiot, and Jesus of suburbia
Incredible song. More energy than every other song on the album.
I can't stop repeating this song in my phone. - randomguy2005
Best Green Day Song.
The most underrated Green Day song of all time
All great songs, but I just feel like voting for this one. - georgielikesgreenday
*gasp* ST. JIMMY NO THIS DESERVES TO BE WAY HIGHER
Am I the only one who thinks this list is screwed up? This is one of the best songs on the album along with are we the waiting she's a rebel and extraordinary girl! Ugh fix this list people
I love this song. My other favourite one wasn't on the list so I just voted for my second favourite one instead.
WHAT! HOW IS THIS 10? This song is better than American idiot! This list is totally messed up
Dude this song rocks how is it 11
WHAT! This should be in the top three
No. 11? REALLY? This is one of the best songs I have ever heard...
This song is just AWESOME! How can anyone not like it?!?
I feel like my heart just shed a tear every time I listen to this. - randomguy2005
You kidding me? I can't listen to this song without shedding a tear.
AT LEAST the best b-side
It's a great song, too bad it didn't make the final release, but despite little attention, it's there and good
I like the way this song is like, the American Idiot album, but summarized. - randomguy2005
Too much too soon is a great song. Its just full out Green Day.
This song is too good to be a B-side. I love it.
