Yeah, my room is just brimming with awesome.. totally forgot to include that in the original cool-count list! I don't have the darnedest where I got that.. I think my buddy was moving on from his band-posters-in-his-room days and just gave it to me.. I love it. Just for the full count, my room is chocked with posters, and here's the list -- TV/Movies: Kill Bill, Fight Club, Napoleon Dynamite, Star Wars, School Of Rock, Snakes On A Plane (because it's absurd and Samuel L. Jackson is the man), Family Guy. Bands: The Academy Is, Fall Out Boy, Houston Calls, Foo Fighters, Everclear, Millencolin, Treaty Of Paris, Green Day (American Idiot), All-American Rejects, New Found Glory, Motion City Soundtrack, Midtown, Anberlin, Coheed And Cambria, Yellowcard, and a panoramic picture I took at Warped Tour this summer. Whew.

Actually, (as you can see above,) I really enjoyed American Idiot, almost as much as Dookie, and that's saying something. The songs are really varied and they weren't afraid to overstep their usual three-chord boundaries on that record.. they've matured, even if they are singing songs about Bush being an idiot.
Edit: Man, do I feel like I hijacked this thread with that picture!
