WHATSERNAME UNRELEASED MUSIC VIDEO[edit]

http://www.musicsrc.com/video/Green_Day_-_Whatsername_%28Official_Unrele.php?id=7F_9ND5SEDQ&artist=Green+Day&song=Whatsername Inclucde in article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.200.230.74 (talk) 23:13, 14 September 2009 (UTC)

Section reinstatement[edit]

The section that explains the story of the album and the meaning of the songs should be reinstated. --Arcai, 12:04, 17 July, 2008 —Preceding unsigned comment added by Arcai (talkcontribs) 16:05, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

There is a section that explains the story. WesleyDodds (talk) 20:38, 17 July 2008 (UTC)


The section about the various releases that was deleted on 20:31, 3 June 2009 should be restored.

Spelling errors[edit]

there are multiple spelling errors under story, would someone be kind enough to fix this? Tq6993 (talk) 20:03, 18 August 2008 (UTC)

Did people bring the album back into the past to steal it?![edit]

"In mid-2003, Green Day convened at Studio 880 in Oakland, California, and recorded about 20 songs for a new album titled Cigarettes and Valentines.[3][4] However, in November 2002 the master tracks went missing."

How could they have made the album in 2003, and have it stolen in 2002? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.217.61.141 (talk) 17:08, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
check your sources again it mght have been a typo or something else along those lines. but there has been speculation that Cigarettes & Valentine was never recorded and that the band made the whole thing up, personally i think its true but look it up and decide for yourself. Tq6993 (talk) 19:55, 18 August 2008 (UTC)
The title song, "Cigarettes and Valentines" was played during the warm up for a show in Las Vegas back in mid-July. The album is most likely real, and the 2002 thing was probably a typo. AlexanderAwful (talk) 21:14, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
It was also played on yesterday in Denver. http://www.greendayauthority.com/news/738/ —Preceding unsigned comment added by QWERTY531 (talkcontribs) 11:25, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Pop punk[edit]

The songs "Homecoming" and "She's a Rebel" are pop punk. This album is also pop punk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.122.158.14 (talk) 14:15, 19 September 2008 (UTC)

No. how about this...compare "She's a Rebel" to, say, blink-182's, well, anything. NO F*CKING SIMILARITY! same for homecoming! compare this album...hell, this band, to blink-182 or simple plan or +44 or Sum 41. NOW compare to ramones, sex pistols, or Anti-Flags less aggressive stuff. MUCH better comparison. --Greenday21 (talk) 20:32, 24 September 2008 (UTC)Greenday21
Don't be daft. It's just as pop punk as Blink, Sum 41 etc. They don't have to sound exactly the same. There's nothing wrong being pop punk, just accept it. Nouse4aname (talk)
True, Green Day are definately pop-punk. Sonic Youth don't sound too much like RHCP but both are (arguably) alternative rock. Calling a band pop-punk isn't an insult, but if blink-182 are pop-punk then Green Day are too. Try listening to 'Feelin' This' next to 'Holiday' and it might seem a little clearer.--Rikkyc (talk) 04:45, 1 December 2008 (UTC)
Green Day are, actually, the real pop punk band. Blink-182 aren't punk at all, people label them as pop punk just because Blink call themselves punk. Blink-182 is Power Pop. A good example of a pop punk album is Green Day's Dookie. Excuse the stupid labels like Alternative rock (which Dookie had nothing to do with) and Punk Rock (taking punk rock as a base genre, pop punk being a "happier" and lighter form of it)..Allmusic just isn't good..--Revilal90 (talk) 22:27, 21 January 2011 (UTC)
To be really honest, there's a good reason the genre says 'alternative rock' first then punk rock. American Idiot is a alternative rock album. Jesus of Suburbia, Boul. of Broken Dreams, Are We the Waiting, Give Me Novacaine, Extraordinary Girl, Wake Me Up When September Ends, Homecoming, Shoplifter, and Whatsername are ALL DEFINITELY NOT punk, but most likely altern. And that list of songs is most of them on the record. The only albums that have mostly punk songs by gd are all their indie lps/eps and the album Insomniac. Someone please change the second genre to 'pop punk' for this album and change the American Idiot song's genre to pop punk too, not punk rock.
  • Edit: Nevermind. I searched and searched and searched but no ones calls the American Idiot album pop punk. I only found stuff about the musical being pop punk.

STOLEN SONG![edit]

American Idiot is a rip off of the Dillinger Four song Double Whiskey Coke No Ice!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 198.169.13.183 (talk) 19:36, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

LOL. Found a video here. Sounds plausible, but it's original research if the claim is not covered in reliable sources. If no sources can be found, then it doesn't belong in Wikipedia. Interestingly, this isn't the first time there's been a complaint of plagiarism on American Idiot. Oasis complained that they ripped off "Wonderwall" for "Boulevard of Broken Dreams". I know that claim is notable because of the wide coverage it received, but can anyone find anything on this latest claim? --Pwnage8 (talk) 06:46, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
Doesn't look like any copyright issues were ever brought up between the two bands but yes, there is a definite resemblance between the song "American Idiot" and the older "Doublewhiskeycokenoice" which can be found listed on the wikipedia article "Midwestern Songs of the Americas", the name of a Dillinger Four album from 1998! 69.177.131.77 (talk) 20:04, 29 July 2009 (UTC)
I know I'm late to the party on this, but the other day I was listening to some old Nirvana and noticed GD's "She's a Rebel" bears an unmistakable (though superficial) similarity to Nirvana's "Molly's Lips" (itself a Vaselines cover) off the Incesticide CD. Thought it worth a mention. 24.79.89.131 (talk) 03:18, 12 July 2010 (UTC)

Tracklisting[edit]

Shouldn't "Jesus of Suburbia" and "Homecoming" have subheadings regarding its different song parts, along the lines of:

  • I. "Jesus of Suburbia"
  • II. "City of the Damned"
  • III. "I Don't Care"
  • IV. "Dearly Beloved"
  • V. "Tales of Another Broken Home"

which is actually how it's listed in the "Jesus of Suburbia" article itself. Also the tracklisting in any Record store website or the actual CD itself doesn't list it as having 21 tracks, but rather those two tracks are 9:10 and 9:21 long respectively and have subheadings. I'm pretty sure that's how it was at one point and someone changed it for some reason? Feudonym (talk) 09:16, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Possibly, that's how it is on the back, It would be fine, if not better if someone put what you have up there, but with roman numerals, and spaced like an outline, and not put as seperate tracks —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kiraisgod666 (talkcontribs) 04:08, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

Master Tapes Lost?[edit]

I thought the master tapes for Cigarettes and Valentines were stolen, instead of lost —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.206.139.28 (talk) 15:56, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

The problem I think is that no one has come up with a reliable source to use as a reference for this bit of background. As soon as someone can link to, say a journalist who had just been told this by Billie Joe, there would be little question. HelpnWP (talk) 06:30, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Bonus Tracks[edit]

The bonus track "Favorite Son" (as Favorite Son (song)) redirects to this article, yet there is not even a mention of this song or any of the other American Idiot bonus tracks on this article. Shouldn't we include them? 69.177.131.77 (talk) 20:35, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

No. indopug (talk) 04:19, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
Why not? 98.203.152.242 (talk) 06:21, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

I added a section for the b-sides and out-takes, but people keep removing it. Check it. It should still be there. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.109.27.250 (talk) 18:50, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

Musical?[edit]

I've heard that a musical of the album is being made right now - supposed to start in Berkeley in a few months if I'm not mistaken. If we can get reliable sources, shouldn't this be included? 98.113.19.51 (talk) 22:24, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, I just read an article in the LA Times about this... here's the link: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/culturemonster/2009/08/berkeley-rep-announces-cast-for-green-days-american-idiot.html If I have time, I'll throw this into the article, but feel free to do it yourself Thomas Dzubin (talk) 18:02, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Whatsername[edit]

Anybody know if Whatsername was going to be a single or something, because on youtube, I found an unreleased music video for the song. I found that kind of strange. —Preceding unsigned comment added by RickWilliams75 (talkcontribs) 03:30, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Probably fan made. Don't think they would have gone with 6 singles off the album, too many for a rock band usually. k.i.a.c (talktome - contribs) 05:45, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Over 16 Million Copies?[edit]

According to the page, over 16 million copies have been sold of American Idiot. Is that really true? I tried checking the source but unfortunately it's not a website link or anything - it's just the name of an article or something. --Jesant13 (talk) 01:21, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

I haven't got the magazine, so can't verify it, but the same source was used way back in February to state it had sold 10 million copies; here. So it is probably inflated and incorrect. k.i.a.c (talktome - contribs) 03:07, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Punk Rock?[edit]

Hell no. there is no song on this album that is punk rock. in case you didn't know, punk rock may b green days earlier music but not this. The Ramones are punk, The clash The Misfits, Unsane, Suicidal Tendencies, maybe even some CKY. CrowzRSA 00:34, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

oh yea?how about letterbomb? notice the similarities with gd's early stuff? I'm sick of all those guys like you who like the ramones just because they were first in punk rock. there's nothing punk in "hey ho, let's go" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.27.126.108 (talk) 15:05, 1 June 2010 (UTC)

     American Idiot is punk. Have you listened to any of 
     the lyrics? This is what punk is all about.Duh.
     Maybe not as punk, but still punk.

Bias[edit]

This article is completely written in favor of the album. Where are the ratings? Also, in the reception section I see nothing but praise, even critics that slammed the album are represented in a positive way. This is garbage, some parts need complete rewrites, especially reception. 67.236.85.90 (talk) 20:15, 15 December 2009 (UTC)

Feel free to fix any issues yourself. Wikipedia does not employ people to edit, we are volunteers - if you demand us to do something, chances are we will not be interested. kiac. (talk-contrib) 01:25, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
I'd rather not, as I don't care about the album enough to rewrite it's Wiki entry. I was just making it known that this article is very biased. 67.236.85.90 (talk) 14:08, 16 December 2009 (UTC)
I'm more perplexed why a quick synopsis of the album reviews, as seen on other album pages is not present. I think it would be worthwhile bringing them back. Yanksox (talk) 22:40, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
You might want to see WT:ALBUM. A change looks to be on its way. kiac. (talk-contrib) 02:03, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

The Original Broadway Cast Recording 'American Idiot' Featuring Green Day[edit]

Does this album require a mention? Does it also merit it's own article upon its release? It's going to be released on April 19, 2010. Cheers, Rock drum (talk·contribs·guestbook) 11:45, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Whatsername length[edit]

"Whatsername" is not 6:44, it's 4:14, i'm changing it. --Chickenguy13 (talk) 02:30, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

The length was per Allmusic, though I note that [http://www.amazon.com/American-Idiot-Explicit/dp/B0011Z10PC/ref=sr_shvl_album_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1285903050&sr=301-1 Amazon] lists it at 4:17 and iTunes at 4:12. Sources are inconsistent (my own mp3 file shows up as 4:12). --IllaZilla (talk) 03:26, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, and my CD says 4:14. --Chickenguy13 (talk) 09:10, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
A difference of a couple seconds can usually be attributed to a difference in format (CD vs. MP3 vs. vinyl) or player (different CD players sometimes have slightly different read speeds or may judge the length slightly differently). I usually sum this up as "your mileage may vary", but yeah none of these are even close to 6:44. I have no idea where Allmusic got that from. --IllaZilla (talk) 14:15, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Oh okay, i did not know that some players can read song lengths differently, yeah i have no idea where Allmusic got that. --Chickenguy13 (talk) 09:00, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

paired songs[edit]

holiday and boulevard of broken dreams are the same songs. They are paired together. So are Are We Waiting and St Jimmy. Also Give me Novacaine and She is a Rebel. Please fix it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.92.148.221 (talk) 22:26, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Heh.—indopug (talk) 05:57, 20 October 2010 (UTC)
That's not how a tracklist works. Even though these songs flow into each other seamlessly on playthrough, there are track separators between them. They are listed as separate tracks on the album sleeve, third-party sources like allmusic, and retailers like itunes. --IllaZilla (talk) 19:22, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

Also, Extraordinary Girl and Letterbomb are "paired songs", but that's not how it lists them, that's how it lists them if you download itfrom Rhapsody. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.109.27.250 (talk) 18:53, 11 December 2010 (UTC)

B-sides?[edit]

I keep adding a section for the b-sides and out-takes for the album. Why do people keep deleting it? It seems to be fine that other albums have a section like this, but not American Idiot or 21st Century Breakdown (as 21st Century Breakdown is protected). Why do people keep removing the b-sides? --75.109.27.250 (talk) 17:43, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Songs that are not on an album are not pertinent to the album. If the prose sections cover how many tracks were recorded, & that some were left off during the track selection process, that might be an appropriate place to mention any B-sides that were later released. But they would have to be referenced and placed in proper context. Adding a tracklisted section of "B-sides" isn't appropriate, as they are (almost by definition) not part of the album. --IllaZilla (talk) 22:58, 12 December 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, it's just that the other Green Day albums have a sub-section for b-sides. I think this is given too much credit. It's not their first, or their best. Anyway, please quit reverting the b-sides. It's frustrating and adding a subsection for b-sides would be informative. --75.109.27.250 (talk) 01:28, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
"It's informative" is subjective. Again, b-sides can be mentioned in the prose sections about the album's recording process. A list of b-sides is not pertinent to the album itself. Any b-sides that actually get released will of course be mentioned in the sections/articles on those releases (ie. several of this album's b-sides are listed in the bonus tracks portion of the tracklist, and b-sides released on singles will be listed in the articles on those singles). --IllaZilla (talk) 04:22, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Whatsername (Again)[edit]

Does the song Whatsername deserve its own article? It doesn't have a single, but the music video was leaked. Most people say it's fan-made, but the girl in it is the same girl that was in the Jesus of Suburbia music video. I see no reason why it shouldn't have it's own article. Prosthetic Head was released as a promotional single in Germany only and it has its own article. --24.255.37.229 (talk) 12:04, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

See WP:NSONGS for criteria for stand-alone articles on songs. That the song has a music video doesn't make it worthy of a stand-alone article; the important thing is whether it's received enough coverage in reliable secondary sources to build a decently-detailed encyclopedia article. --IllaZilla (talk) 19:17, 22 December 2010 (UTC)
Well, considering the music video was leaked and not officially released, I think that alone provides enough content for the article, along with a short intro and synopsis of the music video (is synopsis the right word here?). --24.255.37.229 (talk) 01:32, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
Again, the criteria is that there's enough coverage in reliable secondary sources to build a decently-detailed encyclopedia aritcle. See Wikipedia:Verifiability for more detail. If all there is to say about the song is "there was an unofficial video that was leaked", that's not enough for a detailed encylopedia article. If you can verify those claims, the info could well be added to this article. --IllaZilla (talk) 02:01, 23 December 2010 (UTC)

Critical Reviews[edit]

i think more should be written about this albums critical reception (see Metacritic for more information) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.214.129.15 (talk) 00:57, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

Correct the tracklisting[edit]

The standard tracklist is wrong, according to Amazon and iTunes the tracklist is this: 1. American Idiot 2:54
2. Jesus Of Suburbia 9:08
3. Holiday / Boulevard Of Broken Dreams 8:13
4. Are We The Waiting / St. Jimmy 5:38
5. Give Me Novacaine / She 's A Rebel 5:26
6. Extraordinary Girl / Letterbomb 7:40
7. Wake Me Up When September Ends 4:45
8. Homecoming 9:18
9. Whatsername 4:12
Please modify it!. --190.42.25.218 (talk) 00:04, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Fantastic. However, for us who actually own the physical copy of the album, THAT track listing is wrong.
I know I'm being an ass, but it's a matter of apples and oranges. iTunes has a (slightly) different track listing that pairs songs, whereas the actual album has all the songs as individual tracks. No biggie.--Gen. Quon (talk) 23:09, 4 December 2011 (UTC)

GA Review[edit]

This review is transcluded from Talk:American Idiot/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.

Hi! I will review this article. Cheers! Basilisk4u (talk) 17:07, 16 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Can I please make a request that to keep this open for at least 2 weeks if there are problems within the article so that I could fix them. Happy editing! →TSU tp* 01:51, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Unfortunately, after reading through the article, I believe it was nominated prematurely. There is much more information about the album out there that can be used to complete the article. I have a book about Green Day with a lot of great info about the recording of the album, and I plan to help add more information and eventually re-nominate the article. For now, I have decided to fail the nomination in order for it to be more complete in the future. I am very sorry about this, but I plan to do a lot with the article. Best wishes, Basilisk4u (talk) 16:00, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Parental Advisory[edit]

How is saying that American Idiot has a parental advisory sticker "Trivial?" Sonic4fan (talk) 17:32, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

What makes this important to take note of? An infinite number of albums have been released with this sticker. Has a third-party source written about this or taken note of it? If so Sonic4fan, you can cite them. Otherwise, "If no reliable third-party sources can be found on a topic, Wikipedia should not have an article about it. If you discover something new, Wikipedia is not the place to announce such a discovery." (WP:STICKTOSOURCE) Dan56 (talk) 23:27, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Orphaned references in American Idiot[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of American Idiot's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

Reference named "MC":

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 23:40, 23 November 2014 (UTC)

I don't agree that it's "explicit"[edit]

"The album was not sold in Wal-Mart stores due to its explicit content." What "explicit content"? Is it like hardcore pornography or something? I do not accept that the mere use of a word in its "intensifier" form, that doesn't intensify much these days due to its more recent overuse, is explicit. And also in countries whose first language is not English, the content does not qualify as "explicit" there since, for those places of the world, it's in a foreign language. So, not universally agreed at all and should not be stated as if it were a fact. A labelling of "explicit content" or whatever is the opinion of a record company, a music industry, a classification board or an industry body that has no legal authority and does not mean it is explicit or make it such. If people believe it is, that is because they have simply blindly accepted, without question or challenge, the assertion of those bodies. Besides, swearing (which I presume is among what is being considered "explicit") can be used in phrases where its meaning is ambiguous - can have two or more meanings - and therefore is not "clear" as to its meaning at all, hence is not "explicit". Example: "I was fucking with him." Could mean "I was messing around with him" or could mean "I was having sexual intercourse with him". It's ambiguous, not clear, and therefore not explicit.

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 19 July 2017[edit]

Could you change the certificate level of 6x platinum by the riaa, to 7x platinum as it states over hear[1] 176.188.211.28 (talk) 15:31, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Done jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 17:46, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
Not done and reverted. It is the responsibility of the RIAA alone to administer certifications, regardless of reported sales numbers (which I'm not even sure are reliable). They have not done this. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 00:57, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
@DannyMusicEditor: The same editor has requested the same edits be made to the Green Day and Green Day discography articles as well. Feel free to revert those edits as well. jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 01:01, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Done jd22292 (Jalen D. Folf) (talk) 00:47, 20 July 2017 (UTC)
Not done and reverted for the same reasons above. Note any given certification can only account for sales numbers when there is no source independent from the industry association available. dannymusiceditor Speak up! 00:58, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 23 July 2017[edit]

Could you change the RIAA certification in the commercial performance from six times platinum to eight times platinum, and where it says 6.2 million to 8 million and where it says certifications and sales where it says 6,056,000 to 8,000,000[2] 147.30.130.43 (talk) 15:46, 23 July 2017 (UTC)
