Green Day stopped being punk a long time ago. They’re now a stadium-friendly behemoth, and have decided it’s high time for a concept album. 21st Century Breakdown follows a young couple – Christian and Gloria – through modern America detailing in three ‘acts’ everything that’s wrong with the world. Without the bite and edge of 2004’s American Idiot, it’s just a wee bit silly.

Best track: Know Your Enemy will have you dancing while you apply your eyeliner.
