New Green Day video, 'Last of the American Girls': Guns, golden sand, girls

Posted on

Green Day’s back with a video for “Last of the American Girls,” off 21st Century Breakdown. It’s sort of a sequel to the 21 Guns video, in which album protagonists Gloria and Christian endeavored to make out despite having their apartment shot up by the cops. Not sure what happened to the boyfriend, but Gloria appears to have relocated her remaining possessions to the desert, where she is living a glamorously desultory life, complete with television and manicure supplies. Then she decides to blow up her car. Also, there are blond go-go dancers/American Apparel employees following her every move, while the ageless Billie Joe Armstrong and his punk band friends stand nearby and serenade her individuality. You can watch it after the jump. It’s super symbolic n’ stuff. Oh, Green Day. Remember that one time you named an album Dookie?

What do you think, Mixers? Hey, anybody out there got plans to see American Idiot on Broadway? Who wants to spot me plane fare so I can see it, too?
