  • 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.

  • 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!
