While a great song, it's depressing to listen to. I don't really listen to it that much.

The rendition of it at Brixton was absolutely spellbinding. I've always liked it but I never saw it as a highlight of the live show, or even American Idiot, but I was absolutely speechless after the performance at Brixton. It's really made me appreciate the song a lot more, I don't know what it was about it.

Also, "30 years have gone so fast." *cry*

This is such a beautiful song as well as an emotional roller coaster. It doesn't bring about great memories but even then I listen to it again and again. The emotions attached with this song are overwhelming.

Having lost my own father, I find this song much too hard to listen to very often. It just makes me so sad with its powerful words and message. This song, imo, really shows Billie's songwriting genius.

I haven't been posting much here the last few months (been super busy), but I feel like I need to say something about this song.

I always loved Wake Me Up When September Ends, ever since I first heard it years ago when I was just getting into Green Day. My dad had a lot to do with it, and over the years he always told me that Green Day was his favorite band that I listened to. His favorite song was WMUWSE. He sometimes played it even when I wasn't there.

Almost three months ago, just after his 50th birthday, my dad unexpectedly died. I was still in Spain, finishing my master's degree, when he was suddenly torn from my life. He's the only person I've ever lost, and it was really difficult losing someone so close to me, especially when I hadn't seen him in so long. Last month, once I had graduated and returned to the States, we finally had a memorial service for my dad, and during my speech I played this song.

Wake Me Up When September Ends has never had such personal meaning to me before, but now I will always think of Daddy whenever I hear it. It was his favorite song, and a song that now applies to his untimely passing. I miss him so much.

I've always loved this song even if no personnal feelings are related to it.

But I've never understood what the sentence "wake me up when september ends" really means.

I mean is is something personnal to BJ? or is it a reference to the 9/11 beacause the clip is about the Iraq war?

Could anyone explain it to me please?

Cause I feel like I miss part of the song, and it is already so great that I don't want to miss any little part of it

Thank you. Hourra to GD

Admittedly, this song was WAAAAY over played when the American Idiot hype started to calm down, but it is still a very emotional and powerful song concidering it was mainly written about Billie's father.

And to watch Billie sing it in 'Bullet in a Bible' and to see how much the song means to him, it's a beautiful heart-wrenching moment to see that slight moment of vulnerability he shows.

He dedicated it to his father who died in the month of September

I'd not listened to When September Ends for quite some time, and then when they played it at Brixton it brought it back to me how powerful and emotional this song is, just amazing

This is one of the most beautiful Green Day songs for sure. The way Billie sings it is gorgeous every time! You can tell that he puts his whole heart and soul into that song and completely opens himself up for everyone who's listening or watching. It's a timeless song and will always be stunning and relevant.
