This is about 2 lovers who have had a fight. The song is saying that they need space, but eventually they will "come around" and get back together. (thanks, Eric - Pittsburgh, PA)
MTV released 2 videos for this song when it became a single. They had the concept video for the song directed by Mark Kohr, and they also released a live version from Green Day's infamous Woodstock '94 performance (lots of mud was in the air). They used this video to promote the MTV Woodstock '94 retrospect video tape and it went into rotation. (thanks, George - Islip Terrace, NY)
Jason White, who sometimes played as a second guitarist for Green Day, is in this video. He's the guy kissing the girl. (thanks, fungus - Scotland)
When performing this song at Woodstock 94, a fan threw a clump of mud onstage and Billie Joe stuck it in his mouth. This caused the fans to keep throwing mud and started the infamous mud fight. A security guard (in a rush to get fans off of the stage) accidentally slammed bassist Mike Dirnt into an amplifier, causing him injuries to his arm and three of his teeth.
