Re: They played it at my 2004 graduation
I don't know about "most iconic" but it's certainly become, over time, the one you hear the most, and it blows. "Wake Me Up When September Ends" and "Boulevard Of Broken Dreams" are still everywhere too. Actual Green Day songs that I can stand, like "Brain Stew," "When I Come Around," "Armatage Shanks," "86," "No Pride" and "Nice Guys Finish Last" seem to have disappeared. So in other words songs they did from 1997 onwards are going to be better remembered than the stuff from when they made it big?
I mean, they're Green Day, a totally silly inconsequential band and all, but I'm still kinda miffed here as I don't like "Time Of Your Life" OR the A. I. hits.
Wasn't "Time Of Your Life" the theme to some youth angst WB network show, too?
