Seventh studio album by the American punk rock band. A concept album dubbed a 'punk rock opera' by the band members, 'American Idiot' follows the story of Jesus of Suburbia, a lower-middle-class American adolescent anti-hero. The album expresses the disillusionment and dissent of a generation that came of age in a period shaped by tumultuous events such as the Iraq War. 'American Idiot' marked a career comeback for the band. It charted in 27 countries, peaking at number one in 19, and sold 16 million copies worldwide. The album spawned five successful singles: 'American Idiot', 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams', 'Holiday', 'Wake Me Up When September Ends' and 'Jesus of Suburbia'.
