Boulevard of Broken Dreams is a song by Green Day which is about estrangement and the recognition that the American Dream can let you down. (thanks, Mary - millville, MA)

This follows the main character from Green Day's song "Jesus Of Suburbia." He leaves town, has one crazy first night and now it's kind of like the hangover. He's just walking, thinking about whether it was the right decision leaving where he used to live. (thanks, Brad - X, NJ)

"Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" is a famous painting by Gottfried Helnwein depicting Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, James Dean and Elvis Presley hanging out in a bar. Helnwein's painting is a parody of a painting called "Nighthawks" by Edward Hopper.

A different song called "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams," also known as "Gigolo And Gigolette," was written in 1934 by Al Dubin for the movie Moulin Rouge. It has been recorded by Tony Bennett and Nat King Cole. (thanks, Evan - Mountain View, CA)

In the music video for this song, you can also hear the last faded bits of "Holiday," the other hit from the album, in the background, as this song is the follow up to that. They are using the same car as the one in the "Holiday" video.(thanks, Gautam - Rockville, MD)

This won a Grammy for Record Of The Year.

In Rolling Stone's Decade-End Readers' Poll, this song was voted the Best Single of the '00s. Green Day proved they are the band of choice amongst Rolling Stone readers by also grabbing the #1 spot for Best Album (American Idiot) and being named Top Artist of the Decade.
