Apparently Green Day have had the idea in their head to do a rock opera for a long time... this is pretty cool.

it's actually 11 years in the making since American Idiot came out in 2004, not 2010 xD

but yeah, it's funny. they were just joking around about having a rock opera about a guy named Jimmy and 11 years later, it's one of the most iconic albums of the past couple decades!

That's old news, that video got out a few years ago. Green Day's was dropping hints about it for years. They brought up The Who and Tommy a few times, and talked about creating their own rock opera in a few different magazine articles I've read from the 90s. But they'd always say it 'jokingly.'
