"Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)" is a song by Green Day

Lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong wrote this when his girlfriend moved to Ecuador. He tried to be levelheaded about it, but to show his anger, he named the song "Good Riddance" and made "Time Of Your Life" the subtitle. The song shows us about life, how we are not to question it and keep moving on. (thanks, Rainah - Tacoma, WA)

This was written as an acoustic song to distinguish it from the heavily-produced Rock music that was popular in the '90s. Armstrong recalled to Spin Magazine in a 2010 interview: "That was really the first time we attempted a ballad. The first time we ever played that song was during an encore in New Jersey - I had to pound a beer backstage to get up the courage. I knew we were gonna take a tomato to the face." This was used on an episode of Seinfeld where they looked back at all the adventures they had on the show. It was right before the last episode aired. (thanks, Nick - Paramus, NJ)

This was used on the TV show ER in an episode where a young boy dies of cancer. (thanks, Natalie - Little Rock, AR)

This played when England walked onto the pitch in their football match against France in the 1998 World Cup. (thanks, Leanne - Crawley, England)

The album version begins with guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong playing a wrong note. He begins again, repeats the wrong note, and proclaims "f--k!". Then the actual song begins. Radio versions, of course, omit this. (thanks, Tom - New York, NY)

This was the official theme for golf's PGA Tour in 1998. (thanks, Bertrand - Paris, France)

This won for Best Alternative Video at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.
