Album Art: American Idiot

Porfirio Rangel is a 2019 Audio Academy Fellow here at KALW. He profiled a ton of great local music, including a story on The Y-Axes. He's got an ear for future stars and today he brings us a classic from the past.

"Holiday" is from Green Day's American Idiot album. Was it anti-American? Listen to today's mixtape to find out, and potentially get pumped up while you learn.

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue
