It a way Christian and Gloria are just the character progressions of Jimmy and Whatsername.

I'm torn. I think I love the story of AI just as much as I love the characters of 21CB. But I relate to Christian and Gloria more than JOS and Whatsername, which could either mean I like 21CB better for that or I like AI better 'cause the characters are different from myself..... x.x I've no idea.

I honestly like both, they're all very powerful characters and stories.

That's what I think.

They're a bit more believable as characters, in my mind!

I like to pretend that non of the characters exist now, after the video for 21 Guns which (sorry) annoys the hell out of me I really dislike that whole 'rock opera' concept.

The camera work,
the whole 'OMG!! WHEN THEY KISS IT'S THE ALBUM COVER!!!'
and at this day and age I really don't like the idea of seeing bullets nearly hit people I care about (on a fan level).

It's also not how I imagine the song.
Much like 'Wake Me Up When September Ends'.
It's also so stylised it's untrue.

I see the kiss as the two split personalities of Billie Joe's head coming together and merging into him. That's why the camera spins around and switches from Billie to Christian and Gloria. It's a wonderful effect.

I dunno really, i love both of them. I truly belive, however, that the [i]American Idiot/i] album had more depth to it rather than the 21st Century Breakdown album. I belive that they are BOTH good albums, but [i]American Idiot's/i] characters are more...realistic than the 21st Century Breakdown's character's. Than again Christian and Gloria are realistic as well. All in all, there both good albums, with good story plots and characters, and more importantly, there both made my GREEN DAY. So yeah, that's a win. Razz Razz Razz

It's something unpredictable, but in the end its right. I hope you fuck yourself every night.

Origianl, yes. True, also yes.

I agree. I find some little similarities. The only difference I see is Christian and Gloria have more of a love relationship than Jimmy and Whatsername. In my opinion, I like Christian and Gloria better.

I like Christian and Gloria better, however I really do like Whatsername/JOS. Their story is an intriguing albeit complicated story, that's why I like it so much.

I'm just beginning to understand the storyline of 21st Century Breakdown, so I prefer American Idiot because it's not necessary to listen to the album fifty times to understand the story--a person can listen to it once or twice and understand, but that isn't so with 21st Century Breakdown. For those of you who, like me, are having trouble understanding the storyline, here are various explanations/interpretations of the meaning of "Last Night On Earth" and the storyline of 21st Century Breakdown.
