Your Favorite and Most Inspiring Green Day Lyrics/Quotes

240 posts in this topic

Lyrics: Me personality it's, "Waiting" off "Warning". I really think that song tells you that, some times even if you put the work into something, it doesn't work out but to tell the rest of the word, "Good Luck, you're gonna need it. Where I'm going if I get there at all."

Another would be, "See the Light" off, "21st Century Breakdown" espically the chorus,

"I just want to see the light

i don't want to lose my sight

I just want to see the light

I need to know what's worth the fight"


"Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one." - Mike Dirnt

"To do something that you feel in your heart that's great, you need to make a lot of mistakes. Anything that's successful is a series of mistakes" - Billie Joe Armstrong

"If you start planning too far ahead, the next thing you know you forget you're living today" - Mike Dirnt

(When asked who the most inspirational band is to them at the moment) “Us, duh.” - Tré Cool

This is my favorite Tre quote for some reason... :lol:

“I’m a fucking pussy when I get tattooed. There’s an anchor on my wrist. I was in Oakland getting it and I was like, ‘Oh, let me get some air, take a break.’ I went outside and just passed out on the fucking sidewalk, on Broadway, in Oakland. This homeless dude runs up: ‘Yeah, he’s gone into shock. He needs a coke or something. Give him some sugar.’ I passed all the way out.” - Tre Cool, Inked Magazine.

My favorite lyric:

She's figured out, all her doubts were someone else's point of view

It's something I remind myself of when I concern myself too much with what other people think of me to the point of doubting myself. In fact, I just had it tattooed on my arm on Sunday, so now I have a visual to remind me.

"Oh god its time to say goodbye, time to say goodbye, i gotta say goodbye, gotta say goodbye, I'm gonna go and get on my big wheel, get on my big wheel, no i'm going to get on my bicycle, no im gonna get on my scooter, not my bicycle, I'm gonna get on my, get on my, get on my Tonka truck I'm gonna take it, I'm going to go down the strip and smash it against the window, gonna smash it against the window, yeah I am, gonna smash it against one, I gotta a pet rock, yeah i gotta pet rock and its really cool, its like like a its like a worry stone you worry? you rub it, you worry? you worried?"

The most inspiring and my favorite Green Day lyric is from "I Was There".

Looking back at what I done

There is lot more life to live.

At times I feel overwhelmed

I question what I can give.

But I don't let it get me down

Or cause me too much sorrow.

There is no doubt about who I am

There always is tomorrow.

My favorite quote is actually one of Billie's tweets. (Would it count?)

"There is no such thing as too many friends."

I prefere too:

'Home is where your heart is,' but what a shame, cause everyone's heart doesn't beat the same. It's beating out of time." (Jesus of Suburbia)

But I also like:

"She...She screams in silence A sullen riot penetrating through her mind Waiting for a sign To smash the silence with the brick of self-control

[Chorus:] Are you locked up in a world That's been planned out for you? Are you feeling like a social tool without a use?" (She)

Ok, the last one's a bit long^^ Sorry for that! ;)

"I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies"

And also the No One Knows song but this part in particular:

"Does it seem like all your memories fade

You soak up knowledge to fill the space

And still my answer remains...

I don't know"

“A guy walks up to me and asks 'What's Punk?'. So I kick over a garbage can and say 'That's punk!'. So he kicks over a garbage can and says 'That's Punk?', and I say 'No that's trendy!”

Not that inspiring but it's one of my faves. :)

Here they come marching down the street

like another desperation murmur of a heartbeat

coming back from the edge of town

"One of my lies" is one of the most inspired songs I have heard.

When I was younger I thought the world circled around me

But in time I realized I was so wrong

My immortal thoughts turned into just dreams of a dead future

It was a tragic case of my reality.


Why does my life have to be so small?

Yet death is forever

And does forever have a life to call its own?

Don't give me an answer 'cause you

Only know as much as I know

Unless you've been there once, well I hardly think so.

It's like it's describing the esence of life and youth, it's absolutely overwhelming.

My all-time favourite GD lyric is from When I Come Around:

"So go do what you like

Make sure you do it wise

You may find out that your self-doubt means nothing was ever there

You can't go forcing something if it's just not right"

They've always given me chills. I don't know why, they just speak volumes to me. Amazing lyrics.

Some of my other favourites are:

"I'm elated, medicated

I am my own worst enemy

So what ails you is what impales you

You are your own worst enemy

You're a victim of the system"

Super fucking great lyrics from what is, in my opinion, a vastly underrated amazing song.

"So when are all my troubles gonna end?

I'm understanding now that we are only friends

To this day I'm asking why I still think about you"

If you can't relate to these lyrics then you miiiight be a robot.

"Promises, promises, it was all set in stone

Cross my heart and I hope to die

Sugar fix, dirty tricks and a trick question

Guess I should have read between the lines"

When I was little and I'd just sit around listening to Nimrod all day, this was my favourite part of one of my favourite songs on the album. It's just cool. :toocool:

This post was a little long! Oh well.

Lately I've started to enjoy Before The Lobotomy more than I have before, especially these lyrics:

Well I'm not stoned, I'm just fucked up

I got so high, I can't stand up

I'm not cursed cause I've been blessed

I'm not in love cause I'm a mess
