Songfacts®: You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.
This is about a run-of-the-mill punk kid that the main character of the record, Jesus Of Suburbia, creates in his mind to make himself less vulnerable toward the world. Jesus Of Suburbia creates the St. Jimmy character in his mind to make himself less vulnerable toward the world. St. Jimmy is JOS's "rage" counterpart. When Jesus loses Whatsername, his tough side dies ("Jimmy died today, he blew his brains out into the bay"), and he reverts back to the vulnerable Jesus Of Suburbia.
