  • This track was supplied by Green Day for American Idiot: The Musical. The song was originally written by singer Billie Joe Armstrong for his then girlfriend Adrienne in the early 1990s around the time Kerplunk was released.
  • Billie and Adrienne met at one of Green Day's early shows in Minneapolis, Minnesota and they eventually married on July 2, 1994. Here are some other songs Billie penned for Adrienne:
    "2,000 Light Years Away."
    "Church On Sunday."
    "Last Night on Earth."
    "Westbound Sign."
  • The song was first performed by Green Day during encores on the 2009 leg of the 21st Century Breakdown Tour, when it was played solo by Armstrong on an acoustic guitar.
