Day 16: A Song That You Used to Love But Now Hate – When I Come Around by Green Day
Green Day is on the same plane as Nirvana, at least in my head. Their popularity and reputations as groundbreaking musicians are both something that I cannot completely wrap my head around. By saying that, I don’t mean to discredit either one of these bands and take away what the rest of the world has obviously felt they deserve, which is unbridled adoration.
Whatever. I think it’s because they named an album Dookie and everyone, especially teenage boys in the 90s, got a big kick out of it.
So here they are, nearly 20 years later, with a Broadway show and a spectacular wall of awards while I, still totally and utterly confused, sit here wondering…What did I miss? I had to have missed SOMETHING!
I don’t get it. Never have – never will. But I will, out of the kindness of my heart, admit that I once liked this song.
Let’s never speak of this again.
