My Green Day Blog.

As a child, I could never fit in at school. When I was five, I wanted to be a dinosaur (preferably a T-Rex) and I used to pretend to be a dinosaur in the playground at lunchtimes. Of course, it wasn’t that odd because I was only five or six years old, but I was running around the playground roaring at people rather than playing ‘Fairy Princess’ or whatever the other girls were playing.

Skipping to year four, I listened to Morrissey. He was my all time favourite person in the whole world. I don’t know why, because I didn’t really understand his lyrics, I just knew them all. Cliques had started by now, and I wasn’t popular…at all. Most of the people in my class hated me, apart from the odd few.

Year five, I found Green Day. First song I listened to was Wake Me Up When September Ends. I felt something when I listened to that song, I felt Billie Joe’s pain and I was amazed that such beautiful lyrics could exist.

I then listened to Boulevard of Broken Dreams, and I felt like it was an entire explanation of how I felt at school. I was alone. If I could change things, I would have done - but since I couldn’t, I’d just have to accept the fact that it was just the way it was.

I started to listen to their older songs, and the almost spite in the lyrics of the songs on ‘Insomniac’ are what made me love that album so much. I felt, and still feel like I can, relate to almost every song on that album. Hell, I feel like I can relate to most of their songs in general.

Green Day have been my rock for so many years now. Every time I’ve ever felt lonely, sad, angry or even happy I listen to them, and they make me feel better. I guess, they make me feel like I’m not the only one going through things like being lonely, being a minority (I tried to think of another word to use, but I couldn’t think of one) or even being angry (for a very long time, Platypus (I hate you) was the one song that I could vent my anger out to)

I love them more than words can describe.

Apologies for wasting anyone's time!
