American Idiot Featuring Green Day (Cast Album)
by Green Day
Released: Apr 2010
Back in 1994, when Green Day's punkish sneers were plastered all over MTV, did anyone think that Broadway would be calling a decade and a half later? Probably not, especially Green Day themselves, but their 2004 Grammy-winner American Idiot has such a relevant storyline and so much drama, heartbreak and redemption that a translation of it for the Glee set only seems natural. Written by frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and Tony-winning director Michael Mayer, the show features music from American Idiot, plus B-sides and songs from 2009's 21st Century Breakdown.
