Broadway is about to get the roof blown off by the political anthems of [lastfm]Green Day[/lastfm]’s “American Idiot,” and front man Billie Joe Armstrong has no qualms about it.

“What makes a true artist,” the band’s chief vocalist, guitarist and lyricist said, “is putting yourself out there and doing things that are dangerous and vulnerable.”

Building a Broadway musical around three-chord rock certainly qualifies as a risk. But then again, when an album sells 15 million units, it also has the potential to introduce a new audience to Broadway.
