BTW, talking about references, here's a video which reveals all the references on 21st CB Rhapsody commercial.

In "Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj", Taj has to tell his favorite English poem (its a rather posh University and he doesn't know any traditional English Poems" so he ends up using Rolling Stones and Police lyrics, then at the end uses American Idiot and Good Riddance, i was surprised, anyways watch the film if you wanna see it, it happens about 40 mins into it, not a bad film although in the Van Wilder series, "Party Liaison" is much better in my opinion :)

I remember there was an episode of How I Met Your Mother when they were planning a wedding and something along the lines of Playing Time of your Life on a list of top ten terrible wedding cliches.

I was at a festival yesterday and one of the bands played a cover of Longview and later at the "beer tent" a guy came up to me and started singing Basket Case, but only the first few lines because then he had to bend over to puke on my shoes.

But he gave me one of his flip flops, so it's ok.

In the song "Underclass Hero" by Sum 41 he says " We're the elite of just alright" which could be a reference to Stuck with Me's "I'm not part of your elite I'm just alright"

On Cleverbot:

And in one little wayne song on the album rebirth i think, idk the one that was supposed to be "rock" he says "do you have the time to listen to me whine"

It's more Die Toten Hosen reference, cos the song is on compilation from 2011, but I think I can put it here. There is song of DTH called "Uno, Dos, Ultraviolento"

Not sure if this counts, but I'm a journalism student (I work at newspapers) and I'm constantly finding myself subconsciously slipping Green Day references into my stories... or resisting the urge to. Science story about space? 2,000 light years away. Sleeping pills story? Insomniac. I tried to make a headline for a photo of an environmentally-friendly event "Green Day," but then I realized I'm probably the only one who would find it clever. It's becoming problematic... :P

My mom saw a picture of my cousin doing a sign (same as the Tre’ sign) with his fingers. She asked me what does this mean? I told her Tre’ or backwards seven in sign language. Then I showed her Uno, Dos, and Tre’, haha now my little bro goes up to everyone and shows them. Still don’t know what my cousin was doing doubt it was for Green Day.

Just seen a trailer for an abominably awful E4 programme called Beaver Falls that features American Idiot playing in the background. Because it's set in America and there's idiots in it I think.
