Woah! This song is amazing! And its weird that it fits my writing so well. I have these two characters who were really close, but they were seperated because of a death curse (stay away from eachother or one of them dies). But when the curse is broken and they can be together again, they've changed and they feel like they're strangers. More the girl than the boy. He tries to make it work, but she's sick of hearing him complain (Don't wanna hear your sad songs). And when he finds out who she starts dating afterwards (a vampyre, of course! He hates them, haha) he starts judging her and they really do become strangers.

So at least we agree that he was an amazing, influential genius, missmindfreak2010. I don't know every little detail because I'm not like a csi or anything. So. Whatever. But I just find it odd that as soon as Kurt was gone, she tried like a madwoman to get the rights to millions of dollars worth of the band's music and albums and everything. There was lengthy court battle between her and Dave Grohl (former Nirvana drummer, current Foo Fighters frontman) for the rights to all things Nirvana. Fortunately, Grohl won. Yes, I do understand that his lyrics have a twisted feel to them. Actually, a lot of songs by other bands do, too. Maybe not in quite the same way, but twisted none the less. He was a genius, and maybe he really was mad. But I still say the pieces don't connect for suicide. Oh, and Van Goh was truly an amazing artist. I love his work.

Wow, I really do see the connetion between this song and Lord Of The Flies! (Great book, by the way) I really like how sockpuppet872 broke it down, too! You pointed some great key points there! It makes a ton of sense! Also, when he says "See 'em running for their lives" I think he's referring to the ending, when Jack and his tribe are hunting Ralph and really do plan to kill him and put his head on a stick like they did with the sow. By then, Ralph really is running for his life.

This song means a lot to me - now more than ever. I'm leaving for college in two years and my mom is still trying to control everything that I do. She searches my room, reads any paper she finds, goes through all my stuff, texts my friends on my phone pretending to be me just to see what kind of information she can get. Its ridiculous! I've gotten to the point where I've had my best friend hide my sketchbooks at her house because my work is a bit dark, and my mom would never allow "devil worship" in the house. Its not! Its just. What I felt when I drew it. Like the one with a gun to the head. But anyway, she tries controlling everything. She wants me to be the perfect little christian housewife/mommy, and I don't want to be. For one, I'm studying to be Wiccan (and keeping that under wraps from her), I couldn't care less about getting married right now, and I don't want kids. I take care of my little brother enough to know its too much work for me on top of everything else. She sees what she wants to see, and I just let her believe it. I'm just not really what she sees anymore. Its sad when you leave the house, get to where you're going, then change you're clothes or call up whoever you're really meeting just because its not "mother approved" even when its not bad at all.

No, personally, I did not know Cobain. Neither did you, I can assume. Yes, I know he was on drugs and all of that, and sure, I know he had some problems. But I do not see why someone who was one of the most famous and influential people of his time would kill himself over drugs or selfishness like depression (don't take that the wrong way, trust me. I know what depression is like and it f*****g sucks, but there are ways to fix it without killing yourself). I mean, I would see it as selfish because, if it was suicide, he's leaving his bandmates/friends in the cold without him, abandoning his new baby, and - of course - it hurt his millions of fans, all because he felt bad and wanted his drugs. As for the B. S about suicide vs. Murder - I just have to say we'll have to agree to disagree because I prefer not to argue over something neither of us witnessed.

This is the final piece of the 21st Century Breakdown story. I see it as written in both Christan and Gloria's views. They're saying they've traveled their lives, fighting for a revolution of their beliefs, for their freedom from the constraints of a mindless, self-indulged society. As they grow, they realize that fighting wasn't as necessary as they thought, and that trying to get other people to see life the way they saw it was a waste of time. All they want to do now is live according only to themselves. "I drank the water from a hurricane, and I set a fire just to see the flame" they've realized there are little things that make them happy and that huge riots aren't really all they wanted. The best way to describe this is that they were like inmates who wanted out, so they caused a huge riot, and when they got what they wanted (freedom) they didn't know what to do with it. In all, I think the album has a bit of a message - not only know your enemy, but also know your cause.

This is the 15th installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. It is written in Gloria's point of view. Christian has finally given up, and they have found eachother, and they're picking up the pieces of their relationship. She knew it wouldn't last and she's hurting because he's hurting. She still loves him. He realizes he shouldn't have left her, and she understands how he's feeling, all his pain. All his regret, because she's been there.

Meaning
This song is the 13th installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. It has no clear definition of whose perspective it is written in, but could very easily be both. I see it as Christian's. He's pissed because Gloria has run away, and maybe he thinks she was cheating. It sounds almost like he's making fun of her. He's saying that he's leaving her, and that he's going to send their relationship up in flames and forget her.

Meaning
This song is the eleventh installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. It is written in neither Gloria's nor Christian's perspective. It is more of a collection of all of Gloria's doubts and fears. Its almost like a voice in her head telling her that she isn't good enough, its making fun of her for cutting and using drugs, telling her that nobody loves her, and that everyone would be better off without her. It is laughing at her, telling her to run away from herself.
+1
Meaning
This song is the tenth installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. It is written in Gloria's perspective. There has been a riot, a demonstration of their ideals and beliefs. Its midnight, and Gloria is lying awake while Christian is in the bathroom, trying to hide the fact that he's crying. They both feel hopeless because they are beginning to think their efforts are wasted and there is no point in their lives. She knows they aren't finished yet, but she still feels desperate, like its their last chance, and she wants it to be worth it.

Meaning
This is the eighth installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. There is no clear give away as to whose point of view it is written in, though it is very likely to be Christian's. He's finally getting his revenge on those that have done him wrong, beginning his reign of blood. When he says he will call the peacemaker, he's talking about Gloria. He knows she's on his side because she thinks he is right, though I think she is somewhat against the extrmes of his violence, maybe turning her cheek and ignoring it because its the only way to get what they want.
+2
Meaning
This song is the seventh installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. Its written from Christian's point of view. After his epiphany in Last Night on Earth, he has renewed faith in himself and pushes foreward with his attempts to reform. He's turning religion into satire, making fun of the church and the bible. *Don't test mesecond guess meprotest meyou will disappear*. This makes it sound like he has turned to ultimate violence, and murder. Anyone who dares to question him faces his wrath, and possibly their death. He doesn't see it as a crime, he sees it as a necessity.
+1
Meaning
This song is the sixth installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story. It is never stated whether this song is from Christian's or Gloria's point of view, though I believe it to be Christian's. He is in a state of numbness, and his mind has wondered to Gloria, and all he can think about is how much he really does love her. He texts her and tells her he loves her, hoping she gets it. The way he sees it, his life could end at any moment, and in this moment of realization, he feels that he needs to tell her how he feels about her. He says that even if he loses everything, the thought of her being there for him keeps him going.
+1
Meaning
This is the fifth installment of the 21st Century Breakdown story, written back in Christian's point of view. He's pissed because his revolt against the modern regime isn't working as well as he thought it would, and it sounds as if he's going a little insane. *There's fire in my veinsand it's pouring out like a flood* this line shows that he is on edge, and making friends with the blade. He's getting full of himself and saying he's the 'chosen one', and thinks he's the only one who can change the world. He really believes that if he's unsuccessful, man will return to ape.

Meaning
This is the fourth part of the 21st Century Breakdown story, written in Gloria's point of view. At first, its a reflection of how her life used to be, how happy she was, and how much time has changed her life. Then her emotions take hold of her retrospect, and she's angry with herself, admitting to her involvement with drugs and how she's really just a f*k up and not the person everyone thinks she is. She does love Christian, but she doesn't think she can be in love when she's so messed up. Her mind takes hold again, and she goes back into retrospect, mourning the loss of her past.

Meaning
As Billie Joe said, this song is a "call to arms" It is the second part of the album's story, right after 21st Century Breakdown. In this song, Christian is in revolt. He's stopped fighting his inner demons for the time being, using the energy to fight his oppression. He's resorted to violence in his one-man revolution (violence is an enregy Against the enemy), and he thinks that silence will work against him, so he makes sure everyone knows where he stands. *The insurgency will rise When the bloods been sacrificed Don't be blinded by the lies In your eyes* he's saying that people have to realize what's really going on, and realize they're being lied to and controlled. He even plainly says "give me, give me revolution". The story continues into! Viva La Gloria!.

Green Day have once again proven themselves to be one of America's greatest bands to grace our stages! While I loved American Idiot, I must say that 21st Century Breakdown is actually somehow better. This song opens the album, another Punk-Rock Opera, introducing the first character, Christian, who hates being just an average guy, born into a world of chaos that was ruined by his predicessors. He feels lost and confused, and he's at war with himself and his demons inside. He has a very negative outlook on his life at this point. He hates how things are going for him, resents that he is condemned to a life of less than mediocrity, and he hates that everyone believes religion can save them. At the end, he seems to be Taunting America itself, by telling it to go ahead and scream, bleed, die, believing the liars of the world. The album continues into Know Our Enemy.

Meaning
This song is part of the American Idiot story. Its the fifth installment, right after Boulevard of Broken Dreams, and before Saint Jimmy. In Boulevard of Broken Dreams, the Jesus of Suburbia realizes he can't make it on his own (and he's really badly hung over). In Are We the Waiting, Jesus is basically on his knees and screaming at the sky, asking why he has to be the s***w up, why life seems to hate him. The story continues in Saint Jimmy.

Meaning
This song has two meanings that I know of. The first, that everyone knows, is basically Green Day's rant/song about how the government is currently a load of crap. The meaning that mostly only die-hard fans know is that this song is part three of the American Idiot story. This song tells about how, after the Jesus of Suburbia leaves to live on his own, he feels completely free and parties it up, getting high and drunk, going crazy. But he can't do this forever, which is why Boulevard of Broken Dreams is the next piece to the story. The story begins with american idiot, jesus of suburbia, holiday, boulevard of broken dreams, are we the waiting, saint jimmy, and so on.

Meaning
I don't think anyone fully understands this song. Not here, anyways. Its about this kid, who we only know as Jesus of Suburbia, who is fed up with the way his life is going. The story begins in American Idiot. This is part two, and it continues into Holiday and to the end of the cd. He's sick of living a pointless life and not feeling like he was worth anything, and you hear his complaints in American Idiot. Then his complaints become anger, and he begins to resent his life. So he packs up and leaves. The next part of the song continues in Holiday.
+1
Meaning
Green Day has been my favorite band since my brother first introduced me to them eight years ago, and I've never given him his cd's back. St. Jimmy is about when Jesus of Suburbia finally leaves home, he meets Jimmy. Or maybe Jimmy is a figment of his imagination, an alter ego. So he starts listening to this Jimmy guy, and likes how care free the guy is, how nothing you do is wrong. The first part of the story is American Idiot, then Jesus of Suburbia, then Holiday, Boulevard of Broken Dreams, Are We the Waiting, then Saint Jimmy. It continues on to the end of the cd.

Uhm. Wow. I have to agree with essentialmama! All anyone ever gets is sugar-coated fluff. And when they do get facts, like how many people died in the war, they forget its A freaking war! People die! And I know people are losing their loved ones, but they knew there was a war going on and that there was a possibility that they were going to die for this country! They knew what all the possibilities were. Those men and women out there are the bravest this country can put in uniform and send to defend. Yes, it is a pointless war, but its not over untill its over. We can't just run away from our mess again just because people died. If you're so worried about adults dieing, why don't you worry about all the children being kidnapped, starved, and sent to war in Africa? At least ou soldiers are being fed and cared for. I just wish everyone wasn't so concerned with how everyone feels and more with things like finding out how to take care of everyone. We complain about the economy, yet buy everything from China. I hate how stupid peole are.

This song is so sweet! No matter what, you just have to keep holding on, staying strong. Is it just me, or does anyone else think this song has a bit of an irish feel to it? Even just a little? But I really love this song because it has the best advice I could ever imagine. Keep holding on, be there till the end, never give up. If you love someone or believe in what you are doing, you can't give up on it. Or maybe you can't give up even if you wanted to because you know the best thing for everyone else is for you to keep going like always, even if it hurts you.

Meaning
Great song! Evanescence is so original and very distinct. You can always tell them apart from anyone else because they combine metal with classical music. Of course, Apocalyptica does, too, but they sound nothing like this. This song sounds like a final plea for help, like maybe she's suicidal, but its that almost secret 'help me'. I don't know. This can be seen in so many different perspectives, but that's just how I see it.

Meaning
Papa Roach I one of my top ten favorite. No to five favorite bands. And this song is so energizing! I can just read the lyrics and I'll start to hear the song in my head like I was actually listening to it! And it isn't necessarily about relationships or anything. Its just about having a crappy pastr and wanting to let go of it. Something tells me this siong will be playing when I move out.

Meaning
Eheheh. Unfortunately, my mom heard this song. I love it, but then she started getting on my case because I'll be going to college soon. I can't wait to get outta the house, but she thinks I'm going to end up like all those druggies and alcoholics. Sure, I know a few (that she doesn't) but that doesn't mean I'm going to be stupid. Even though this song got me in trouble for something I didn't and will not do, I still love it. I think its funny because he makes some very valid points. But people mostly get into things like that because they're finally away from overbearing, controlling parents and have the freedom to do whatever, to let go.

I adore kelly clarkson! Why is it that the best winners of ai didn't plan on ever being on the show? Kelly's frien made her go, and David Cook was only there to support his brother who was auditioning, but they made him try out, too. I really love this song because its so. Heartfelt. You can just feel it. She's saying that she's screwed up now because she let you influence her so much, and now she's afraid to trust anyone. God I know how that feels. It really sucks. I'm glad she has songs like this and not just the pop fluff I would have expected from ai.

Meaning
Wow. Married, burried? Oh, the ironic foreshadowing! His wife (at the time) Courtney Love, was the one who killed him (he had no reason to want to kill himself, so I don't believe it was sucide). So, essentially. He was married then burried. I just wish he could have seen it coming. The world suffered an enormous loss, and the infamous 27 list claimed another victim. So sad. Hey, um. If you people are going to post a comment, could you please make it legible?

I love this song! Words cannot express! My friend katie and I used to sing it all the time when we were about five. It drove our parents nuts! Especially when they were stuck in the car with us. But I haven't seen her since I was seven, so about nine years. I always wondered who sang this song originally, and then I remembered my mom mentioning something about an 'angry garden' as I remembered thinking. So, I looked it up and it turns out it was savage garden.
