If you’re like me then you probably have an idea in your head about what your favorite rock songs are about. Right? We all know what “Free Bird” is about. We all know what “Highway To Hell” is about etc…
But there are a lot of rock tunes that are completely misunderstood.
For instance “Good Riddance (time of your life)” by Green Day is actually COMPLETELY misunderstood by most people. Let me explain….
If you have fond memories of belting out “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” at your middle-school graduation or during the last night of overnight camp with your friends, you aren’t alone. Many people seemed to misinterpret the lyric “I hope you had the time of your life” as an earnest one, and ignore the first half of the song’s title.
Green Day‘s lead vocalist, Billie Joe Armstrong, told Guitar Legends magazine in 2005 that he wrote the song while he was breaking up with his girlfriend who was moving to Ecuador.
“I was trying to be as understanding about it as I could. I wrote the song as kind of a bon voyage. I was trying not to be bitter, but I think it came out as a little bitter anyway,” he said.
So… now ya know!
