  • Overall, I really want to stress that the song is better in the context of the album and a pretty empty track without the rest of the album to be honest, nevertheless, hearing this track makes me encouraged for the record to follow

      Song Of The Century is a song by Green Day which is the opening track of their most recent record, 21st Century Breakdown. The song opens up with a bit of noise which is similar to radio static, giving the track a vintage type of feel.

      Armstrong comes in with the vocals of the track singing alone without anything behind him or accompanying him, it’s really just his own voice and this static-like effect.

      I’m not


      exactly sure if static would be the correct word here because it’s still very clear and everything, it just gives the song sort of a vintage vinyl feel.

      Song Of The Century is extremely short and it’s a very simple track : all this song has is Armstrong singing for around a minute and basically introducing the record, hence why this is one of those songs which is better to listen to in the context of ...


      • the album.

        Nevertheless, Armstrong shows, even on the first track of this record which is an extremely short song, that he still has his knack for melodies that have a nice rhythm to them.

        Also, the lyrics on this track seem to indicate Armstrong slightly maturing in this department which is another good thing.

        Song Of The Century doesn’t have much substance to it so it’s really not a song you’ll enjoy by itself, well unless

        you’re a huge fan of Armstrong’s voice, but in the context of the record, it does an excellent job of opening the record, the vintage feel on the track is also a nice touch.

        Overall, I really want to stress that the song is better in the context of the album and a pretty empty track without the rest of the album to be honest, nevertheless, hearing this track makes me encouraged for the record to follow.
