ten years of american idiot
I bought it in spring 2005 and for me, that’s the album everything began with. not only green day wise but music-wise. of course, there were other CDs before but AI felt special, bigger. at the beginnig, I couldn’t really understand it even though I liked the singles. after some time I liked it more and more until it became my favorite album. also my interest in punk rock grew and everything I listened to in the last 9 years had something in common with this album. angry stuff, funny stuff, slower stuff, pop and some big ass rock n roll.
“The idea of ‘Ghost Stories' was: How do you let the things that happened to you in the past, your ghosts, how do you let them affect your present and your future because there was a time when I was feeling like they were going to drag me down, and ruin my life, and of those around me.” - Chris Martin
