I might get some backlash for this one, but the "Hey-ohhh"s in the AAF recording of "Letterbomb" always get me.

Several highlights from both American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown:

 

The entirety of 21st CB (song) - especially the solo near the end and the lyrics throughout.

Jesus of Suburbia - obvious reasons

Boulevard - outro

21 Guns - final chorus

Homecoming - the beginning and 'Nobody Likes You'

Lobotomy - the guitar build up before the outro

 

 

...to name just a few - very powerful records imo.

 

Then from other albums - X-Kid, DRB, Macy's Day Parade, Redundant...

The middle breakdown of 21st Century Breakdown when it blasts into that sweet riff! It gets me every time.

Live version of 21 guns... " from a stooooooooooooooooone " and the piano of course.

Shoplifter - the whole song

Too much too soon - " I hope you rest in pieces, FUCK YOU " :wub:

American Eulogy - " Mike's singing ", especially in AAF where Billie and Mike both shout " and I don't give a shit about the modern age ", I've watched that part more than I should.

 

 

Green Day generally gives me chills.

Jesus of Suburbia Live in person...each and every time they play it, I feel like I have witnessed an absolute masterpiece.

 

Just from the records though - X-Kid, Good Riddance, Redundant, Last Night on Earth, Homecoming


Oh and the live version of American eulogy where Billie is singing "Nobody Likes You", Mike is singing "I don't wanna live in the modern world", and Jason is singing "Mass Hysteria" all at the same time...EPIC

That gets me sometimes too! In fact, that version in its entirety! It's even my ringtone lol. It starts at "Where will all the martyrs go..." and ends at "and don't look back."

 

I miss many calls just so I can hear it  :blush:

Jesus of Suburbia- due to its sheer epicness and emencity. The lyrics. The subject manner. The
Emotion.

Last night on earth- I know this song gets a lot of slack but its one of my favourite Green Day songs. It's about being in so much love. Yes I'm a girl and even though most of what I listen to is rough and tuff I still love a good love song.

Wake me up When September ends. I wrote the SOTW entry for this but it was probably the most real of lyrics. It was just an outpour of emotions on Billies part. And hearing it mixed in with my personal loss of my father always gets to me.

The Forgotten- just cause there was an instagrammer that I follow that lived near the Sandy Hook area and made this post about the sandy hook school shootings and used the lyrics of this song. It KILLs me to this day.

I'm gonna go for the first thought that comes to mind.. which would probably either be Whatsername in its entirety, or mostly the ending "and in the darkest night, if my memory serves me right, I'll never turn back time.. forgetting you but not the time." Maybe the beginning part of Before the Lobotomy, but not quite as much.

Very few songs in the world give me actually shivers up my spine (I Can See Clearly by Johnny Nash and Sugar Sugar by The Archies do for some reason (?)), but One For the Razorbacks does every time I hear it (something abou that intro and "you know I am lazy and a bit crazy"), 21 Guns, (all of it, but esp. the piano bit in AAF), the intro to Homecoming (popular choice I see), Misery, X-Kid (the first time I heard it, it made my scalp tingle) and Missing You (you're not around and I'm a complete disaster). Oh, and the end of Brutal Love. Oh and the strings section of The Forgotten.

 

And when 99 Revolution began at Emirates Stadium - Oh. My. God.

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? 

I'd say:

Green Day (1039 smooth)

Paper lanterns

Christie road

one for the razorbacks

one of my lies

having a blast

coming clean

When it's time

Time of your life

bouleavrd of broken dreams

give me novacaine

wake me up when september ends

whatsername

Restless heart symptom

21 Guns

Walk away

The Forgotten

 

 

And more that I've forgotten

Loads of them, all of American Idiot, most of 21st Century Breakdown, quite a number from the trilogy - Lazy Bones jumps out as the first one that comes to mind.  Also the Broadway cast recording of 21 Guns with Billie Joe, I love how he sings the high parts 'lower and longer', if that makes any sense.

For every GD's songs that I absolutely loved and used to listen all day long (all night long, even)... at some point I hated them !!!
And someday I listen to em, just like that, and I get the feeling... That feelings that make you, dont know how to say.. bury or deep ? into the song and ''make your stomach turn'' ;)
But mainly for Whatsername, Pulling Teeth, WICA...

I hadn't gotten chills when I heard 21 Guns until I heard this version.  

 

Also this: "I got soul, but I'm not a soldier."

X-Kid. Every time. And parts of J.O.S. because its insanely epic


And when i saw American Idiot, I was one of the lucky people to see the one and only Billie Joe Armstrong in it, so I got chills during a number of the songs most notably, when he came out during St.Jimmy (i even cried a little), (surprisingly enough) Know Your Enemy, and 21 Guns which I thought was 10 times superior to the original LP version
