  • This is the song Green Day were playing when authorities halted their free show at the Hatch Shell in Boston, on September 9, 1994. Many in the crowd of 65,000 had turned unruly (not uncommon during Green Day shows around this time), and security was overwhelmed.

  • Nelson from UsaThis song portrays his anger yet his ability to make a huge f--kin' slap, this song is great
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjYeah, but the line,

    "It's real and it's been fun, but was it all real fun?"

    What does that mean? Did he just contradict himself there? Or is it like, one person is saying "It's been really fun, " and the other one is saying, "But has it REALLY been that fun?" I just don't get it!
  • Hayes from Newark, OhThis song, it just takes this song to get me PUMPED! i feel so filled with rage, that it is morphed into energy, and i just lose it!
  • Crystal from Warren, PaI love this song sometimes I think about being in a bar and singing it to my exs
  • September Heaven from Lawton, MiThe bonus song called "All By Myself" is sang by Tre Cool. Tre (drummer) has always been the funny one. Mike (bassist) used to be funnier . . .but not that much any more.-Septemberheaven
