Good Riddance (Time of Your Life) is so un-Green Day yet so wonderfully-Green Day at the same time. It is my favourite song and is played often at graduations, funerals etc.
Many people won't accept that this is the same people who did American Idiot. It is Green Day does MOR and it's just so appealing to everyone.

There are various theories about what Billie Joe Armstrong was meaning when he wrote this:
1 After a break up
2 Looking back on your life on your death-bed
3 Getting totally drunk
4 Green Day's way of saying 'ha ha ha, we don't need you' to the people who hated them after they became popular.
Another turning point a fork stuck in the road,
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go,
So make the best of this task and don't ask why,
It's not a question but an answer learned in time,

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right,
I hope you had the time of your life,

So take the photographs and still frames in your mind,
Hanging on a shelf in good health and good time,
Tatoos and memories and dead skin on trial,
For what it's worth it was worth all the while,

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right,
I hope you had the time of your life,

It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

A word used by stuck up teenagers who think that if music is popular and the album gets into the top 10 then the band are automatically are rubbish and are terrible.
One of the most 'sellout' bands of our time is Green Day. I am a Green Day fan and I will freely admit that but I have friends who in 2000 liked Green Day but since American Idiot claim 'Green Day are shit! They are such sellouts!' And these people haven't even heard of Kerplunk. I don't think that any band has sold out. Every band sets out to make music and to hopefully be famous. Everyone wants a limo. Everyone wants £1m record contract.
Being rich doesn't mean you make rubbish music. It doesn't mean you don't care anymore. It just means you are rich and have a lot of fans.

And Good Charlotte? MTV from the start in my opinion.
(Silly person) Omg I love this band! I'll always love Green Day!
(Silly person 3 or 4 years down the line) I hate this band! They have never made a good song in their lives. I always hated them! Green Day are such sellouts.

Someone part of the goth culture (or trying to be part of it) from the 90's onwards. Generally wears black, moans about no one knowing what goth really is and how goth hasn't been good since the 80's (they weren't even born in the 80's). Some claim to be wiccans or satanists but wouldn't understand either of these beliefs if they hit them in the face and many write poetry or have live journal in which they moan about the decline of music, the mental state of themselves and the state of the world in general.

Popular music with babybats includes HIM, The Cure, Marylin Manson, Funeral for a Friend and for some reason which I don't at all understand: Nirvana (since when was Nirvana goth?). These lyrics whine about life and being different and rarely get political.

For what it's worth, goth actually started out as a good idea: be yourself and see the difference in what others ignore. But now all it is is a bunch of bored teenagers outside Boots on a Saturday imagining what it would be like to smoke weed and yelling at passers by who 'conform to society'.

Goth failed because of a major, yet ridiculously simple flaw in the basis of it's philosophy. It says that we shouldn't conform and that we should be proud of who we are. The reality is that people think they are being different by wearing certain clothes, listening to a certain type of music and really are just conforming to another sterotype. Think about it, what's more individual: having a nose ring, going to some concert, painting your nails black and listening to a band that all your mates know whilst moaning about how life has let you down or wearing what the hell you like, listening to what you like and not caring whether what you like is popular or unpopular?

Goth is just another teen tribe now.
1) Look at those babybats.
