This year marks the 10th anniversary for one of the weirdest moments in recent pop music history. Green Day somehow released one of the most critically acclaimed rock operas of all time. They were an entity primarily known for a series of respectable snot-punk slammers throughout the '90s, and then they were decorated poet laureates, winning trophies and inspiring hilariously overwrought write-ups.
American Idiot has not retained its resounding importance, "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is no longer getting remote adult-contemporary spins, and you have to imagine a lot of music writers might regret some of the breathless words they spent praising an album that turned out to be a momentary fad. But honestly, that's worth celebrating. American Idiot's lasting legacy will be that, for a few months, everyone really really cared about American Idiot. Seriously, people wrote some crazy things about this album. So crazy, that we've created a little quiz. In the following questions you will see four hypothetical quotes from reviews for the seventh Green Day album. Only one of them will be real. Can you figure out which one is which? Let's find out!
