About the Song
American Idiot is the seventh studio album by the American punk rock band Green Day.

Following early recording at Oakland, California's Studio 880, the band finished the album in Los Angeles. The album achieved popularity worldwide, charting in 26 countries and reaching number one in nineteen of them, including the United States and the United Kingdom.
