Jesus of Suburbia

17 November 2005 » Music, Politics

I really got into Green Day’s “American Idiot” album around March of this year, thanks to my friend Mike York. I’ve started listening to the album again recently, and it’s amazing how its year-old anti-administration theme takes on even more relevance nowadays, particularly the lines

This hurricane of fucking lies
I lost my faith to this
This town that don’t exist

And I walked this line
A million and one fucking times
But not this time

From the excellent multi-part “Jesus of Suburbia.”
