’American Idiot’

’Jesus Of Suburbia’ (‘Jesus Of Suburbia’, ‘City Of The Damned’, ‘I Don’t Care’, ‘Dearly Beloved’, ‘Tales Of Another Broken Home’)


’Boulevard Of Broken Dreams’

’Are We The Waiting’

’St Jimmy’

’Give Me Novocaine’

’She’s A Rebel’

’Extraordinary Girl’


’Wake Me Up When September Ends’’Homecoming’ (‘The Death Of St Jimmy’, ‘’East 12th St’, ‘Nobody Likes You’, ‘Rock and Roll Girlfriend’, ‘We’re Coming Home’)
