Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has revealed that he had hesitation about one of the band’s most successful songs.
In the latest edition of Audible’s Words + Music, Armstrong believed that Green Day fans would hate the song “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).”
“I remember the first time I ever sang it live. I thought people were gonna throw bottles at me because the single was gonna come out,” Armstrong said.
Armstrong continues, “And so right at the end of our set, I remember going backstage. I was like, ‘Okay, I’m gonna do it.’ And I grabbed a beer and I chugged it. And then I went out with my guitar and I played it, and it got an amazing response.”
