  • Billie Joe Armstrong wrote this about "fake" people, like those in Hollywood. The lyrics, "All dressed up, red-blooded mannequin" show his feelings about them putting up a front and being "plastic." >>

  • After the bridge, right before Billie Joe starts singing, "I see you..." you can hear someone cough. It's probably Billie because he sounds out of breath when he starts singing again. >>
