I didn’t realize that Green Day’s "Jesus of Suburbia" (track number 2 on the American Idiot album) was just over 9 minutes long. There aren’t many bands who can record a good 9 minutes of anything, but I think that they do. I know they’ve suffered some flack from people who feel that they exchanged their punkier Dookie days for more mainstream tunes, but I love ‘em as much as I did in 1994. One of my favorite lyric snippets from "Jesus of Suburbia" is this, especially the second line:
Oh, therapy can you please fill a void
Am I retarted or am I just overjoyed
Not sure exactly why I like it, but I know that the pretty music certainly helps.
