So the first single from Green Days new album 21st Century Breakdown is online thanks to a radio rip. If you remember I posted the title track when it leaked in March. I thought it was enjoyable enough for GD but not their best. After giving their new single “Know Your Enemy” a listen I am dissapointed. The song is going to do well on the radio sure, it is pretty catchy. but I am not sure if it memorable. Even though American Idiot saw a lot of mainstream success I still saw a band with a fiery passion for what they were doing. From the 2 songs that I have heard from the new LP it seems like a tired sequel of American Idiot.
I hope I am wrong but so far I am not too happy. Maybe the songs go better in the context of the album? Anyway I am trying to withhold judgment considering it is a radio rip. What do YOU think?
