  • Lyrics
  • Billie Joe Armstrong recalls Green Day's early days on this surging midtempo power ballad, "When we were forever young. When we were outlaws."

    "I was feeling nostalgic," he told Rolling Stone, "thinking about when me and Mike (Dirnt, bass) would break into cars and steal tapes and lighters and s--t like that."
  • Green Day sees this song as a sequel of sorts to their 1992 Kerplunk! track "Christie Road," which also dealt with memories of the band members' adolescence.
