Rock opera

Rock opera is an opera in rock music. It fills the gap between a concept album, released by single band, and a musical, which is a theatrical play featuring songs. Rock opera may be composed and instrumented by a single rock band, or by musicians from the different bands. Nevertheless, unlike a simple concept album, it features many vocalists, who perform their roles, and a script. Read more…|Edit this Artist photo: The Who

    The description for this tag says it all. The missing element in American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown is that there are no guest singers sharing a script.

    Green Day is rock opera because of American Idiot. A rock opera is generally an album that tells a story. American Idiot tells the story of a man called "Jesus of Suburbia" who decides to leave his city.

    Why the fuck is Green Day tagged as Rock Opera? Theyre that commercial pop punk shit. Real Rock/Metal Opera artists are Ayreon, Savatage, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Meat Loaf, King Diamond, Avantasia, Pink Floyd, The Who, etc.
