The title track off 21st Century Breakdown, the structure and flow of this song is reminiscent of Jesus of Suburbia. However, unlike that song and the rest of the songs on American Idiot, this song is tuned to Eb, like several other songs on this album.

In the guitar chord chart below you will find that the chords are written without sharps or flats that would normally be associated with a song that is tuned a half-step down. We do it this way because a bunch of sharps and flats everywhere can be confusing for some, and ugly for everyone.

So, tune down a half-step to Eb. If you don’t know how to do that, this online half-step tuner will be helpful. Then play the chords below like you normally would, and with a little luck, it will sound beautiful.
