I remember the day when music took over my life; I was on the bus on the way to school and my sister’s friend’s brother handed me a burnt CD with ‘Green Day – American Idiot’ written on it in permanent marker. I put in my CD player and literally could not stop listening to it. I loved everything about it: the angst, the rawness, the distorted guitars; it almost took me out of my reality. I loved the energy and the emotion in all the parts; there was power in the songs. Every time I heard the opening chords of the album American Idiot, it always made me wonder how they wore the album.


this speaks to me on the highest of levels
