Green Day's new album

Green DayÆs long-awaited eighth studio album, entitled 21st Century Breakdown, premiered its very first single on worldwide airwaves -- Know Your Enemy on Thursday last April 16, 2009 at exactly 5pm.

21st Century Breakdown is the best-selling trioÆs first studio album since 2004Æs two-time Grammy Award-winning punk-rock opera American Idiot, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart, spawned five hit singles, and went on to sell more than 12 million copies worldwide. In a recent feature, Rolling Stone called 21st Century Breakdown ôeven more ambitious than American Idiotö and ôa record of die-hard punk idealsàtightly scripted, continually ascending classic-rock excitement.ö

Singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool have been at work writing, arranging, and recording 21st Century Breakdown since early 2006. And after a full three years in the making, hear the biggest and boldest record Green Day has ever made as the soundtrack of the 21st Century! Last May 15, 2009, Green Day gave the world another rockinÆ album that will megaphone the songs of this generation!
