How to follow a 12-million-selling phenomenon like American Idiot?

For these power-poppers, the answer is, record another "punk-rock opera" for the Ritalin generation – this time in the shape of an 18-track concept album in three acts.

Never mind about that, though: what we actually have here is more Guitar Hero-friendly rock with just the right amount of sweary angst to prove credentials remain intact. What are Green Day against? What are they for? Impossible to say, but that won't concern the tatooed teen army.
