American Idiot - the seventh studio album by the American punk rock band Green Day - achieved success worldwide, charting in 27 countries and peaking at number one in nineteen of them, including the United States and the United Kingdom. Since its release, American Idiot has sold over 14 million copies worldwide. The album won a number of awards, including a Grammy for Best Rock Album, and received acclaim by critics. In 2009, Kerrang! named American Idiot the best album of the decade. Rolling Stone also listed "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" and "American Idiot" among the 100 best songs of the 2000s…
Green Day imploded after the December 2012 release of Tre, the final part of a triple-album project. The very unwieldiness of Uno, Dos, and Tre – all released in rapid succession in the autumn of 2012 – suggested that Green Day were perhaps suffering from a lack of focus, but the group wound up taking a forced hiatus once leader Billie Joe Armstrong entered rehab in the middle of the triple-album rollout. Given all this chaos, it's hard not to view 2016's Revolution Radio as a consolidation, a way for the band to shake off all distractions and get back to basics. Discarded alongside the mess and garage rock affectations that marked Uno, Dos, and Tre is any sense of concept at all – a marked departure from their work of the past 15 years.
Have you been a bad boy or girl this year? Worried that Santa's going to bring you a bag of coal? Maybe he'll bring you some dookie instead. Green Day's patented pop-punk is as timeless as any classic Christmas carol. These all-new holiday versions prove it. Instead of fast licks of guitar solos, you will be getting the jingle of bells and horns. From now on, you'll be singing about the Green Days of Christmas…
The DVD issue Green Day - American Idiot represents something of an unofficial companion piece to Green Day's Bullet in a Bible unofficial in the sense that Critical Review has not been officially authorized by the band or its representation. Review, like its predecessor, examines the band during its 2005 world tour promoting its seventh album, the 2004 Who- and Queen-influenced rock opera, American Idiot.
During the summer of 2012, Green Day unveiled their ambitious plans for the fall and winter: they would release not one but three new albums. The records — ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! — would appear in September 2012, November 2012, and January 2013, respectively, with each individual bandmember gracing one of the album covers on his own. ¡Tré! was moved up to a December release.
This iTunes release includes all 3 albums.
¡Dos! is the upcoming tenth studio album by the American punk rock band Green Day. The album is set to be released on November 9, 2012 in Australia, November 12, in the United Kingdom and the next day in the United States through Reprise Records. It will be the second of three albums in the ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré! trilogy.
