[FLASHBACK] Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends

每年這個時候都會想起 Green Day 的 Wake Me Up When September Ends,沉醉在nostalgic mode的渡過。歌曲收錄他們在2004年推出的「朋克搖滾歌劇」概念專輯 American Idiot,故事講述居住在郊區的少年 Jesus of Suburia 內心在憤怒和愛之間爭扎。每首歌曲記錄不同情節,表達那一代人所經歷的各種動盪,包括伊拉克戰爭帶來的失望和爭議。

“Wake Me Up When September Ends” by Green Day is a single cut from their triumphant album, American Idiot. The band referred this concept album as “punk rock opera,” which follows the story of Jesus of Suburbia, an adolescent anti-hero that is divided between “rage and love.” Through its plot, the album expresses the disillusionment and dissent experienced by a generation which came of age during various turmoil including the Iraq War.
