The first song I heard was "Boulevard of Broken Dreams", but I didn't care alot for that one. Then I heard "American Idiot" and thought it was good enough to buy the album when I was like 9. Then hearings songs like "Are We the Waiting", "St. Jimmy" and "Homecoming" made me a fan. :D

American Idiot back in like fourth grade or so. My friend brought in the album to school and from the opening chords of American Idiot I was in love and that weekend I went out and bought the album. That was the first cd I ever bought and I listened to only that album for about a year or 2.

It was "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" and this song is still my favorite because it always reminds me of how I listened the first time to Billie Joe's voice. :toocool:

I can remember my first time hearing a Green Day song too vividly x,x

 

I was about 5 and a half years old... we were sitting in the car, we just went on the highway to our grandmother and She's A Rebel came on. Ever since I can remember I always loved fast music and when I got home, I literally had it on replay for ages. My brother (who's about 3 years older than me so he knew shit) once learned me working with playlists instead of having to restart the video every time. Stupid childish me put in the song a million times, instead of hitting the 'replay all' button.

 

Ah, good memories. I never realized I've been a fan for so long, heh, I suppose this forum is good for something.

The first song I heard was probably off AI, but the first song I remember liking was 21 guns. Then I found Dookie and American Idiot that my sister and the first one that really made me a fan was probably Jesus of Suburbia.

"She" was the first song I heard. My dad had bought Dookie and Insomniac back in the 90's. He was a fan in the 90's but he'd kind of forgotten about them when Nimrod and Warning came out. When I was 8 or 9, I found the Dookie CD in the storage room and I heard "She" and was hooked ever since. I bought all of the CD's and my dad got back into Green Day. We went to see them on the 21st Century Breakdown Tour when I was 11 and My little brother was 9. I'm now 16 and have yet to see them again. I was gonna go to one of the canceled tour dates, so that kind of sucked.

Yeah that's it! It's playing in the background during a house party scene in American Pie 2. When Stifler tells Jim to put his shirt back on (I'm an AP nerd) :P

The song that made me a fan was WMUWSE. I remember being in the car on the way to school (I was 11) and it came on the radio and my mom asked if I liked it...my 11 year old self then received American Idiot for Christmas. :happy: I even a radio show in the car where the host was talking to Green Day fans over the phone and one of them mentioned Dookie and I thought it was such a funny word. I had no idea back then obviously :lol:

 

Pretty crazy to think that ten years later they'd be such a big part of my life. :happy:
