21st Century Breakdown is divided into three acts: "Heroes and Cons" (tracks 2-7), "Charlatans and Saints" (tracks 8-13), and "Horseshoes and Handgrenades" (14-18) and follows a young couple, Christian and Gloria, through the mess and promise of the century so far." Musically, the album continues the rock opera style of American Idiot.
