American Idiot Politics
The Harvard Political Review has released an article on Green Day's "American Idiot" and the politics of the album. It includes an original interview with Billie Joe Armstrong.

Titled "Growing Up With Green Day: Millennials and 10 Years of American Idiot", written by Emily Wang, it's truly a great and smart in-depth look at the story and meaning behind the album and why so many people got attached to the album. Here's a bit from the article, comparing the storyline of Jesus of Suburbia and the choices he makes when faced between "rage and love".

"Millennials today face this exact choice. Anderson notes that “[t]here are two simultaneous narratives for the millennial generation. The first is that they are cynical and disappointed. Polls show a high level of frustration. On the other hand, millennials are also very focused on problem solving and really believe they can make the world a better place. We see a lot of millennials going into nonprofits [and] Teach for America.”"
