...As a teen-angst tale, the album has much in common
with the Who's rock opera "Quadrophenia." "Idiot" even
shares the name of the Who record's main character:
Jimmy.

While Armstrong says he's a huge fan of
"Quadrophenia," he says that choosing the name Jimmy
wasn't an homage to that album, but was a twist on the
King James version of the Bible...
