Are We the Waiting
Written by: Billie Joe Armstrong
Song length: 2:42
Album: American Idiot
Previous song: "Boulevard of Broken Dreams"
Next song: "St. Jimmy"

"Are We the Waiting" is the fifth track of American Idiot. In some countries and on digital releases, "Are We the Waiting" is the fourth track because the previous two songs "Holiday" and "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" are combined into a single track. "Are We the Waiting" and "St. Jimmy" are also combined into a single track in these releases, since "Are We the Waiting" segues into "St. Jimmy".

"Are We the Waiting" is the fourth song on Green Day's live album Bullet in a Bible; it is one of two songs that don't have DVD commentary, the second being "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)".

"Are We the Waiting" is one of the few songs on American Idiot that don't swear (others include "Give Me Novacaine", "She's a Rebel", "Extraordinary Girl", "Wake Me Up When September Ends", and "Whatsername").

Green Day has played "Are We the Waiting" in almost every live performance, their 99 Revolutions Tour being the major exception.[1]
