    What's everyone's favorite song from Green Day's new album, American Idiot? I would have to say mine would be 'Boulevard Of Broken Dreams'.

    Jesus of Suburbia probably, although Homecoming is a real good way to wrap up the album. (Whatsername is pretty much just an epilogue).

    "the death of st. jimmy" is freakin' awesome. I love the recurring themes in the album, but my absolute favorite is how st jimmy dies near the end. I was more attached to the first half of the cd at first because it grew on me quicker, and there's all these references to st. jimmy and whatnot throughout the songs. then suddenly when I listen to "the death of st. jimmy" and he sings "jimmy died today", it was almost sad. ****ing brilliant album.

    This is an incredible album - I was just going to make a thread on it myself.

    I personally think that Boulevard of Broken Dreams will be a radio smash, because it is immediately catchy. My favorite on the CD would have to be Jesus of Suburbia, though - I love how the different movements blend together to form a coherent and moving song (especially Part 4, the part with the xylophone!).
