Hey everyone, it’s that Time Of Year Again and so here is your yearly reminder to Not Be A Dick.
Some backstory; back in 2004 Green Day released American Idiot, the hit album with the single of the same name. On this record, came another fairly popular song entitled, Wake Me Up When September Ends. This song was written by Billie Joe Armstrong for his dad, who died from cancer when Billie was 10 years old.
And every year, since 2004, there are these Funny People who make these “lmao september’s over wake up greenday” jokes and like….. can ya’ll maybe not laugh at the loss of this guy’s dad.
i make this PSA every year bc it’s just a dick move in general and i saw green day perform just two weeks ago and during the performance of wmuwse billie, broken up, changed the lyric from “20 years” to “30 years” like…. it’s obviously still a big thing for him so maybe, don’t laugh at his loss.
i have and will continue to break mutuals/unfollow if i see anyone reblogging those jokes. it’s like literally so easy to Not make these jokes. so if you didn’t know why people get so offended about these jokes, now you know.
