Hey there :)

I'm not sure if this is the right place .. so if it is not, please move it :P

Ok, Well, both are great songs , but probably you like one more.

I'm not sure, but I THINK that I like "Jesus of suburbia" more.

p.s. - which section do you like the best in your prefered song? I'd say "City Of The Damned" :)

Pleasant discussion :)

I like the part on Jesus of Suburbia where Tré plays the drums.

You know the bit. He's all like BAM BAM BADDA BAM BAM TING BANG BAM.

It's cool.

Almost impossible to choose.

Probably gonna have to go with Homecoming... It's literally the band's song. First two parts of the song take the story of AI deeper, then Mike and Tre get their time to shine, then one of the best moments in Green Day's discography.

6:07 is one of the best riffs Billie has ever made and the whole act is almost like a celebration of their career.

This was the song that started it all for American Idiot.... Gotta give it the nod.

Homecoming is one of the best songs Green Day has ever made.

Hard to choose, but I'm just that small amount more fond of Homecoming.

I like both songs, but I gotta go with "Homecoming" for sure. It's one of GD's best songs and I have alot of fond memories with it.

I love both equally. All songs on AI are part of a whole story. It's like wether you like page 34 or page 87 in a book. Both are essential to the plot and over all concept. Homecoming, I love the beginning the best. "My heart is beating frim me, I'm standing all alone. Please call me only if you are coming home" Billie's voice is so beautiful during this. The fact that Homecoming includes Mike and Tre in their own parts gives it +1. The fact that it was the first song that was written to inspire American Idiot gives it a +2. Jesus of Suburbia is a story on its own, introducing us to the Jesus of Suburbia and setting the tone of AI's plot. Love both.

Tré sings lead, and Billie and Mike do harmonies and backing vocals. And randomly shout "YEEHAW" and "WOOHOO".

Mike only does harmonies and backing vocals on Homecoming. Hardly a starring role.

EDIT: I'm stupid when I'm tired, okay?

I'm surprised by the sudden love for Homecoming, I thought I was part of a small minority preferring it over JoS.
Everyone's always praising JoS and nobody ever mentions poor Homecoming.

I love both songs to bits, but i picked Homecoming! But only because i think it is an underrated song, not by the more hardcore Green Day fans, but by the more casual fans and people who just like the occasional song i think it is underrated (at least by the people i know)! Also i find it more fun to play on guitar and Mike and Tre's lead vocal parts earn it some extra points! :)

50/50. I'm surprised. Everyone's talking about how they love Homecoming. Anyone want to say why they voted JoS?
