Description:
"Boulevard of Broken Dreams" is a song by American punk rock band Green Day. It was released as the second single from their seventh album, American Idiot. The song was written by Green Day, with lyrics by lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. The single peaked at number two in the United States, making it Green Day's most successful song.

The song speaks from the point of view of American Idiots main character, Jesus of Suburbia, and is a moderate midtempo song characterized by somber and bleak lyrics. This is in contrast to the previous track on the album, "Holiday", which illustrates Jesus of Suburbia's high of being in The City. MTV's Green Day Makes a Video described "Holiday" as a party, and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" as the subsequent hangover. "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" remains one of Green Day's signature songs.

It was ranked the #1 on the Reader's Choice: Singles of the Decade by Rolling Stone magazine in 2009 and #65 on the 100 Best Songs of the Decade list by Rolling Stone in 2009. As of 2010, it has sold 2,084,000 copies in the United States, and was certified 2x Platinum.

"Boulevard of Broken Dreams" won the Grammy Award for Record of the Year.
