Oldie But A Goodie #1

I've been getting into the music I used to adore as a teenager again, rediscovering old loves, and so I thought maybe I might share it with you all... I was a massive rocker in my mid to late teens, and lately I've been harking back to the old days, pining for my youth if you will!

Today I'm bringing you some absolute gold from the behemoths that are... Green Day!

Here's the title track from American Idiot, the first album I owned by them, and probably one of my favorites, though I do own the whole back catalog...

Top Lyric: "Everything isn't meant to be okay..."

I absolutely adored Green Day as a teenager, they were upbeat but punchy and I found they heavily influenced my style. My friend at the time was a huge fan of them, and she was a little bit in love with Billie Joe Armstrong, the frontman. I can't say even now that I disagree, he was pretty charismatic back in the day.

Oldie But A Goodie is going to be a weekly thing, I hope, so please keep your eyes peeled for more of these in the future!
