look up any word, like blumpkin:

an awesome green day song; the song is very instrumental (only aucostic guitar) and is soft (and not really punk like most of their songs); the song's real title is Good Riddance, but this is the common name; the basis of the song is a relationship gone bad and all the painful memories; after the realtionship is over, he hopes she had a good time, but thinks she need to move on
It's something unpredictable,
But in the end its right,
I hope you had the time of your life.

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.

looking at all of my friend Josh's definitions of green day song's...and he fucked this up only a litte bit. yes, good riddance is a break up song, but the thing is, it has nothing 2 do w/ good terms. billie is basically saying "i hope you had fun while we were 2gether, now get the hell out of my life"

Totally awsome Green Day song of thier album Nimrod. I've heard Billie Joe say once on this t.v show (forgot which one) that he wrote Time of your life (Good Riddance) as if to say good-bye to all the fans and stuff, cause they were gonna quit for a while..most people probably know that already. Thats why there was such a big gap between Nimrod and Warning(?)
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 test
And don't ask why
It's not a question
But a lesson 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
Hang it on a shelf of good health and good time
Tattoos of 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.....
