Alfred Music Publishing, a leading provider of high-quality music products since 1922, is thrilled to announce the release of Green Day’s latest album, 21st Century Breakdown, as album-matching easy guitar TAB and authentic bass TAB songbooks in addition to the authentic guitar TAB and piano/vocal editions currently available.

Upon its release, 21st Century Breakdown reached number one on the album charts of at least fourteen countries. The album subsequently achieved number one on the Billboard 200, European Top 100 Albums and UK Albums Charts. Possibly the first true punk rock opera, 21st Century Breakdown, Green Day’s brilliant concept album, features larger-than-life storytelling with the spirited writings of Billie Joe Armstrong that runs through the narrative of Christian and Gloria, a young couple working through the shattered promises of this century. The 18 compositions included in this album flow effortlessly, ranging from the power punk that the band’s become famous for to sensitive ballads and featuring interesting tempo shifts, key changes, and instrumentation that keeps things popping. The music inside the 21st Century Breakdown songbooks features authentic, professional transcriptions, ensuring accurate and precise playing for your ultimate enjoyment.

In addition to the easy guitar TAB and authentic bass TAB editions, Alfred is proud to announce the publication of four additional songbook editions of 21st Century Breakdown: authentic guitar TAB and piano/vocal—now available—and easy piano and drum transcriptions—coming soon.
