JUST SAYING 'BUSH SUCKS' IS NOT, IN ITSELF, A POLITICAL ACT

We've harboured the feeling that Green Day's supposed political rebirth has been tolerated more in a spirit of encouragment than because they've done little more than adapt a fourteen year-old's worldview; and yet nearly everybody has seem content enough to take 'American Idiot' as being on a par with Gramsci at his sharpest. Thank God Kele Bloc Party has broken with the consensus:

"I recently went to see Green Day play in Norway and was really disappointed. The whole premise of the new record seems to be dissatisfaction.

"They seem to be riding on this pubic sentiment of anti-Americanism among teens across the world. It just seems to be the emptiest of sound bites and that's something we were always conscious of trying to avoid."

And who doesn't want to ride on some pubic sentiment every now and then?
