Green Day's 'American Idiot' Hits Chart With Record Breaking Debut

Published: 2004-08-16
The first single from the forthcoming CD by the band Green Day hits Canadian radio and the charts in record setting fashion. The single "American Idiot" debuted at number four on the Nielson Radio Airplay Charts. "American Idiot: is the highest debuting single in the history of the charts. The record breaking debut is quite an accomplishment for any band but especially for a non-Canadian band since Canadian radio limits airplay of artists outside of Canada.

"American Idiot" is the first single from the album "Green Day Presents American Idiot". The album - due out September 21 - is a politically charged punk opera.

In September Green Day will put on a select number of shows where they will perform the opera (CD) in its entirety. An exclusive stop in Toronto is to be included.
