I've always adored "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" even though that wasn't the first Green Day song I heard. I thought it was an awesome song when it first came out and realized how much I related to the song at the time. I got sick of it (like everyone I'm sure) and had forgotten its existence. Today, I heard it at the mall and emotion just nailed me right in the gut. All that feeling that I had from listening to it for the first few times came back and I loved the song all over again. Are there any Green Day songs that made/make you feel that way?

The song and lyric that always gets me is from Whatsername, and the "forgetting you but not the time" part gives me a poet-boner. Or "chills" as you put it.

A lot of Green Day songs I'm sure. Especially Jesus of Suburbia and Homecoming of course. But the song that gives me the chills every time is Letterbomb. When I finally heard it live last year.. oh my god. Amazing song. Also, when 21stCB came out and I listened to Before the Lobotomy I got the chills. Well, the first time hearing that album it had the same effect on me.

And about BOBD, I fell in love with that song again (and American Idiot the album as a whole) thanks to the broadway cast version. The ending of BOBD combined with "city of the dead".. wow

Lots of different songs have at some point. But, Viva La Gloria, Viva La Gloria (little girl), X-Kid, Armatage Shanks, Restless Heart Syndrome, Jesus of Suburbia...are some to name. Lots more though,.
And then, when you hear the songs live, that's a totally different experience all over again, and basically every song they play moves me in some way or another.
Listening to the songs though,I think any has the ability to give you 'the chills', but it all depends upon your current situation and how the lyrics and music connect to your life at that moment in time.

The "I won't feel any shame" bit in JOS usually gives me the chills.

This too. That part always gets me, no matter how many times I listen to it.

BOBD definitely! It made me get into them in the first place.

Also Having a blast, When I come around, RESTLESS HEART SYNDROME (oh boy yes that one...especially the autotuned part "Know your enemy" then the big blast out and the end with the drums and Billie screaming!)

Christie Road has given me the chills before too.

Walking Alone, Macy's Day Parade, J.A.R., Whatsername and Jesus of Suburbia, Letterbomb, Are we the waiting, Give me Novacaine, Before the Lobotomy.

Song of the century (mostly because it was the first song I ever hear live from them) iViva la Gloria!, Viva la Gloria (Little Girl) and Drama Queen...I'm so sure I'm forgetting a lot more though. :lol:

J.A.R. everytime. It really makes you think, proves that songs don't have to be ballads to be this deep.
