Longview was one of those songs I would always hear, but never cared enough to find out the artist.

Then a few years later, it was the song that got me into Green Day.

I honestly cannot think of the "first song i ever heard by them" but when i was about 6yrs(maybe younger, not sure)
My brother was(still is) a big fan of them and he would always play their music but i didn't care much for music back then lol
If i had to say, i'm just going to say the whole Dookie cd- it really stuck in my head and Good Riddance(Time of Your Life)
But i didn't really get too much into Green Day, til after AI was released

When I Come Around, but I was really young. The first song that got me interested in them was Welcome to Paradise.
