He says that life is short; one day it may happen that you wake up and all your dreams have flown away. And I'm guessing it had something to do with war. However, I don't know him personally, so I can't say for sure. But he will surely remember him as Billie Eliott in the film of the same name. Green Day have sold out! And besides, so what if there's an extra guitarist? This crap is power pop, and I'm sick of all the blind compliments. He tells her he wants to stop the moment, remember her for what she is now and make sure that moment lasts forever.
Lost his friends, the only girl he ever loved, he's out of home, out of job, and back where he started, sad and alone on the streets. They soon added Al Sobrante born John Kiftmeyer , and went looking for a record deal. On the test that tells you so I love the acoustic guitar and how the drums and electric guitar come in with it after the first verse. All of the memories and stuff. In times of prejudice and terrorism its a message to all the people to wake up, to begin feel individual. I've never tackled an issue about that ' about singing about my father. The video ends on this juxtaposition, emphasizing the pain and heartache of losing loved ones due to the war.
Sam from Canada you're wrong. In this song reveals his feelings about who died in September of 1982 when Armstrong was 10 years old. I guess it could be interpreted in a number of ways. Then after my grandmother went my aunt age 26 who was was like a big sister to me and my little cousin age 6 were murdered. To all those that only have this album, check out the old stuff, you'll see the difference. A song that will always be on my mind and in my broken heart. He does a lot of recording with Green day when they need a second guitarist.
Nirvana pulled in Pat Smear Germs to help fill in the parts of In Utero for the same reason. It was the boy's descision and so many others decision to make that sacrifice and serve thier country, in my opinion it exhaluts the boy that he was strong to make such a hard descion. She's only 13, and now this song can relate to her too. Cancer is indeed a tragedy, I will agree with that. The definition of punk music is going against the norm. I like the acoustic feel at the beginning. Him crying even tho its been a while since his dad have died.
In what is either a remarkable stroke of luck, or the vlogger's artistry, the president's halting, I'm-in-this-with-you cadence exactly fits the folksy rhythm and earnest feel of the music. My brother thankfully returned home safe and your loved ones will too. In the for this song we see a young couple that gets separated by the circumstances. At his dads funeral he ran home and locked himself in his room. Anybody that wants to argue can explain to me why they had to add a third guitarist to me, a diss on their punk roots. Anyone who claims that this band is the best has obviously sufferd massive head trauma. Only saw the video to it last weekend - never knew the boy in it was the actor from Billy Elliot British Film all you other nations - but he was in King Kong too And yup - made my eys leak a leetle bit too.
I don't wear makeup, but that's not the point. I mean really, its not that hard to write music when all you use is three crappy power cords. Such a great song, it is a close second to Time Of Your Life Good Ridance but sadly, it just about beats it. Green Day are selling out, and are more popular than ever. I wasn't born when it happened but i was born a month later. The single was released on June of 2005 and did well on the Billboard top 100 charts reaching the 6th spot but was 1 in the Canadian charts. But I'm sure that the last thing that Billie Joe Armstrong would want is for a bunch of folks 'feeling sorry for him'.
About time someone appreciates the the soilders over in iraq. It was hilarious watching them pretend to know Brain Stew or King for a Day, though. I think it is meaningful to write about the loss of your father, i don't know why you would think it wasn't. I never knew how famous the song was until I listened to it. I think it's reallly cool that a punk band like Green Day can write such meaningful songs. I talk to him almost everyday but it's still hard.
The innocent can never last. Like my father's come to pass, seven years has gone so fast. It had to be very tough growing up without a father to love and care for him. It's one of his favorite songs, but he doesn't understand it, he only knows it's about september which is his birth month. Wake me up, When September ends.
People's lives tend to go in cycles: the best times and the worst times of their lives. Way to go Green Day on doing such an amazing job. This was confirmed by Billie Joe Armstrong. And to watch Billie sing it in 'Bullet in a Bible' and to see how much the song means to him, it's a beautiful heart-wrenching moment to see that slight moment of vulnerability he shows. But what I dont understand is why some people think the video is anti war. Setpember resembels death and how his dad died on that month. My aunt beth pasted away from cancer back in 2008 o n september 11th.
Anyone who doesn't think so can go away!!! Green Day is a terrible band. To celebrate, Green Day performed a two-hour-plus show at the House of Blues in Cleveland two days before the ceremony, featuring a special hour-long set as their original Sweet Children incarnation - complete with original drummer John Kiffmeyer performing with them for the first time in well over two decades. Twenty years has gone so fast. It makes me want rip out my ear drums and stomp on them. The song is really sad yes, it may even show a different side of him that we've never seen in this punk band. Green Day were one of the latter-day punk bands to emerge from the 924 Gilman Street club scene in Berkeley, California.
