    This is just my opinion, but I really don't think of 21st Century Breakdown as a concept album. I know that it does meet the guidelines, but it gets confusing at some points. American Idiot, on the other hand, is personally my favorite concept album. Much easier to follow than 21st. Also, OMG!!!!!!!!!! NEW LINKIN PARK SONG TOMORROW!!!!!! (or at least part of the song)

    Well LP have gone out of their way recentely to say its not a concept album, despite an interview with Chester from last year saying otherwise.

    So for now let's assume that it is NOT a concept album. We don't need anyone being disappointed.

    So my fears are alleviated, we won't have to wait a month just to hear the single. Hopefully we'll get the entirety, if not, hopefully at least 30 seconds.

    I'm 99.3% sure I've read Green Day say that 21st Century Break Down was NOT concept album, as it didn't follow a specific story and only had some recurring themes. The Music Videos on the other hand definitely have an intersecting storyline.

    Go tell that to Trent Reznor: http://www.ninwiki.com/My_Violent_Heart

    And on that note, isn't any remix that isn't done by the band considered a fan remix? Unless you somehow are able to get someone who ISN'T a fan to remix a song.

    Yeah I agree, if Mike says it's not a concept album then it's not.

    "We may choose a remix of the song, and put it on the album…or, we may choose an amazing keyboardist, string quartet, guitarist, percussion group, or other musician, and invite them into the studio to play on one of our songs."

    So it would either be a remix of Catalyst OR a lucky fan playing an instrument in one of their songs (Catalyst or other).

    If you want a good concept album, listen to Year Zero by Nine Inch Nails

    Looking at how this thread only has 150 some comments, it makes me realize how those 1000+ were just that amazing. I'm gonna miss those puzzles. Maybe there will be more revealing other song names?!

    This is pretty sweet.

    Ah, so exciting! :)
    I'll try to enter the contest, but I'm not that great with music. It'll be fun to do, anyway. :D
