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.

If anything it would be 'I don't feel any shame I won't apologise'.

Haha you're dead. Gets me every time. Very political punk song. Destroy the bastards I don't care, I'll laugh at you it's only fair.

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

Not every single time I listen to every one of these songs, but typically Macy's Day Parade, JOS, Extraordinary Girl, Letterbomb, WMUWSE, Homecoming, Whatsername, 21CB, Viva La Gloria!, Before the Lobotomy, See the Light, A Quick One While He's Away, Amy and The Forgotten.

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.

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.

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

Fell For You and Missing You gave me mad chills the first few times I heard them. Same with X-Kid and Oh Love.
