I can't stand how 'Whatsername' is portrayed in JOS so it's be the Gloria and Christian one.

Well since I know the story of JOS/Whatsername more, I'd go with that one. I just can't seem to grip the story of Christian and Gloria. Although they're truely in love, I connect with their feelings, but the story just seems a bit too political for my liking. But whatever...

The JOS/Whatsername one is just written in a way where it's open ended in many levels, kind of like a "choose your own adventure" book, but for awesome people. xD

oh i like her a lot in the video.
I don't like jimmy though, he looks like some 12 year-old scene kid wannabe. I don't know if it's the hair or something.

I hate the visualy representations of them all.
I think that it's more the way that they are portrayed in the music which makes them excellent characters.

I love the story of The American Idiot Album alot better. It just seemed like it had a better storyline. The 21cb just seemed like it was nothing. It's almost like they were trying to hard to make a story line.

I really like both stories, but on American Idiot, I always had a difficult time linking all the characters together but they have so much depth to them. With 21CB, it's clear how Gloria and Christian are connected, I also enjoy how the personalities off set one another. That and I'm a sucker for a love story.


Both are wonderful but in my mind Gloria and Christian have a lead.

I really love both of them..
There two very different stories, yet in ways quite the same..
They are both not straight forward, they each have their own twist, complicated, hidden means behind each song..
But I think Christian and Gloria's story is just that bit more difficult to decipher lyrically. Possibly a bit more open to different interpretations.
Either way, no matter what, cannot diss them as they are clever thought out and well worded, hidden stories among an epic record.
Love each for it's own great uniqutenticity.
=D.

I like JOS/Whatsername better for the Sid and Nancy of it all.
But maybe when I get more into the new CD I'll change

i like the gloria/christian story.....maybe its because i've gotten older and i relate to it more.....but both stories are great....but in their own time; relating to my life, they have their own place in my heart

The thing with people not grasping the storyline of 21CB- Billie's said on a few occassions there isn't really a "storyline." The songs don't follow a linear story. They just talk about these two people, two people that really live inside most people anyway.

I'm torn. I really like Jimmy and Whatsername because of the story line and all they went through. But there's also Christian and Gloria who have that unbreakable bond that gets them through everything whereas J and W were in love and she left him in the end. But to choose, it'd be Christian and Gloria because of the deep connection they have.

I think that's actually why I prefer it. It's more personal and relatable, to me, anyway. I love the story of American Idiot, but I love the characters of 21CB more.

But I mean, really, you can't lose. Razz

i agree with your opinion, plus i very well think jimmy and whatsername have more history in AI. by history like you know more about them by listening to the album.
