#14. 21st Century Breakdown

"21st Century Breakdown" is a song by the American punk rock band Green Day from their album of the same name. Billie Joe Armstrong composed the song, which is mainly based on his personal life and musical influences. The song was released as the fourth single from the album on December 21, 2009. Much of the song was written about the personal life of its writer, Armstrong. According to David Fricke of Rolling Stone, its opening lyrics "Born into Nixon, I was raised in hell" refer to Armstrong's birth year of 1972, while "We are the class of the class of '13" references his eldest son Joseph's high school graduation year of 2013. On September 10, 2009, Green Day's official site announced that the song would be the band's next single. However, on September 25, Green Day instead said that "East Jesus Nowhere" would be released as the next single and offered a release date of October 19. On October 21, the band again asserted that "21st Century Breakdown" would be released as a single and gave a release date of December 21. Reception to the song has been mainly positive. Spin thought that it was "Green Day's most epic song yet". AbsolutePunk stated that the song "bursts forth with resilient aplomb".
