I started listening to Green Day a few years ago and can't stop listening to their music.

I like this album but this is probably my least favorite song off it . Jesus of Suburbia is probably my favorite. This is 2000's Alternative. I was a junior in HS when this came out doesn't seem that long ago...

I LOVE this song a lot but I think 5 Seconds of Summer's version is just an itty bitty little bit better. (Nothing against Green Day- I love them and can't wait for the new album, but I love 5SOS a little more)
