"Too Much Too Soon" is a song released exclusively on the American and Canadian pressings of the "American Idiot" single, and also some of the European pressings.[1] This song is also included as a bonus track on the deluxe digital editions of the American Idiot album.

Just like Green Day's other B-sides, "Too Much Too Soon" was never performed live at their concerts. However, it is performed regularly at the American Idiot musical. A broadway performance of "Too Much Too Soon" is the 11th track on American Idiot: The Original Broadway Cast Recording, an album based on the musical. This version is sung by Theo Stockman, Michael Esper, Mary Faber and Alysha Umphress.

On a March 2010 interview with Q104.3 FM, Billie Joe Armstrong confirmed that "Too Much Too Soon" was originally on the cancelled album Cigarettes and Valentines.[citation needed]

"Too Much Too Soon" was recorded in 2003, the year when Green Day began to produce American Idiot.[citation needed]
