I just bought this Green Day shirt with a guy wearing a gas mask, and i get that Christian and Gloria are the Gas Mask Lovers but why gas masks? what does it stand for?

    Green day talk rubbish, they made a big fuss about american idiot, they said theres a big story through the whole album. I got the special edition thats like a book. It was rubbish. Inconsistent story. I have respect for mike dirnt, tre is ok but billie joe is a full on T W A T. Anyway my point is, don't read into anything green day churn out. They lost there perception on whats real a long time ago.

    I am not really answering this question, but I am telling other responders to stop knocking Green Day. If you complain about little things like this, then you shouldn't be listening to their albums. Go listen to the Jonas Bothers, homos.
