I was reading old reviews about American Idiot (the album) and alot of the critics argued that the album would fade into obscurity and be forgotten about because the album was written about a very specific point in history.
And that’s where they’re wrong because American Idiot is not only a political album, but it is also a very personal album that deals with the universal themes of coming of age, heartbreak, loneliness, drug addiction and dealing with one’s personal demons.
So no. I don’t think this album will ever be forgotten about. It’s timeless. It will never stop being relevant. Yes, the Bush years are over but things discussed thoughout the album like war, alienation, heartbreak, drug addiction and rage and love will always exist.
