I'd like to start off by saying that I am in love with this song. Letterbomb and Whatsername are the two best songs on American Idiot, in my opinion.

The meaning of this song is self-explanatory. Jesus is reminiscing about Whatsername and is thinking about how their lives would be if they had stayed together. (Might I add that if you're in the right mood and are listening to this song at the right time, you can burst out in tears. I know this by experience. x]) Well anyways, this was pretty much a pointless entry but I figured I'd throw my two cents in anyways. =]

yea, it is pretty sad. but i think if u listen to it at the end of the day, before you go to sleep, you'll associate yourself with your own personal Whatsername. maybe a friend that moved away, or a grandparent that has passed on, or an Ex-.

that's how it is for me anyway.

letterbomb is about how everything is all fucked up in the world and about the feeling when ur alone and you scream, scream like the devil, and u KNOW no one will hear u and youll never amount to anything but u dont care because youll kick and struggle and cry,

and just try.

The song "Letterbomb" is about a letter that Whatsername wrote to Jesus to break up with him. Whatsername and Jesus/St. Jimmy actually dated, and the song "Letterbomb" describes the letter she wrote to him to tell him that it's over.

Supposedly (according to the new Green Day biography book Nobody Likes You, "Whatsername" is about an ex-girlfriend named Amanda.. who was also the inspiration for the song "Good Riddance".

A lot of the songs must be about her. Maria, Whatsername, the whole Whatsername character is probably based on that girl....she must have really hurt him.

it also reminds me of blvd.of broken dreams How sad!!!!!

I've had bad relationships in my day and this song heals me. I love the beat and meaning of the song. Definite bonus.
