So Billie Joe announces to his eager fans that the new album 21st Century Breakdown (nifty title) has been fuelled by his distrust of politicians.
He whined to Rolling Stone:
“A lot of people were born into an unlucky time, the era of George W. Bush. There is an optimism now with Obama… be aware. Don’t look at this guy as the answer to our prayers. You still need to be involved.”
I just thought it would be nice if they dropped the whole politics thing after really going for it on the hugely popular American Idiot. Maybe they could get back to just writing music about panic attacks, sexual orientation, boredom & ex-girlfriends.
