Jesus of Suburbia by Green Day

Summary

"Jesus of Suburbia" is a song by American rock band Green Day. It was released as the fifth and final single from their seventh studio album, American Idiot, and the second song on the album. It is Green Day's second longest song (their longest song being "Homecoming") and their longest song to be released as a single. The studio version of the song, a five movement piece, runs just over 9 minutes and was considered to be unfriendly for radio, so it was cut down to 6½ minutes for the radio edit. The long version was still played on many album rock and alternative rock radio stations. At most live shows on the first leg of their 21st Century Breakdown World Tour, the band would pick a member from the audience to play guitar for the song. The single has sold 205,000 copies as of July 2010.
