"East Jesus Nowhere" is a song by the American punk rock band Green Day. The single was released October 19, 2009. It was released as the third single from their eighth album 21st Century Breakdown. The title is derived from a phrase in the 2007 film Juno.
The music video was released on September 17, 2009. It shows a montage of live concert footage and pictures from their 21st Century Breakdown World Tour. The video is longer by about 30 seconds, because the bridge of the song is extended, although the studio version of the song is still used instead of a live version. The music video was directed by Chris Dugan and M. Douglas Silverstein.
