The Top Ten
1 It says home is where your heart is, But what a shame, Cause everyones heart doesn't beat the same - Jesus of Suburbia

All of Green Day's songs have this "do what you want and don't let other people's opinions affect you" vibe, and I love it! I feel like it's telling us that it's okay to be different and want something different from life than the people around us.

Green Day has so many inspirational and meaningful lyrics, especially in Jesus of Suburbia, but this is undoubtedly the best line from a Green Day song ever.

This is my all-time favorite. Who didn't cheer when they heard this?

2 It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right, I hope you had the time of your life - Good Riddance (Time of your life)

People don't like this song because it's overplayed, and that is true, but it's still a great song and the lyrics are beautiful.

3 Like my father's come to pass, 20 years has gone so fast - Wake me up When September Ends

Such an emotional song with such a beautiful meaning.

4 Oh therapy, can you please fill the void, am I retarded or am i just overjoyed - Jesus of Suburbia
5 I've been waiting a long time for this moment to come, I'm destined for anything at all - Waiting
6 Nobody likes you, everyone left you, they're all out without you, having fun - Letterbomb/Homecoming
7 When its time to live and let die, and you can't get another try, something inside this heart has died, your'e in ruins - 21 guns
8 Here they come marching down the street, like a desperation murmur of a heart beat, coming back from the edge of town, underneath their feet - Homecoming
9 Dearly beloved, are you listening? I can't remember a word that you were saying. Are we demented or am I disturbed? The space that's in between insane and insane - Jesus of Suburbia.
10 Summer has come and past, the innocent can never last - Wake Me Up When September Ends
The Contenders
11 Im sick to death of your every last breath and i don't give a f*** anyway - Let Yourself Go

I just love this line. In fact, this whole song is so good that I can't stop myself from listening to it! Every nomination on this list is so good that I'm going to vote for each nomination.

Billie and co., every time I listen to your music, it just rocks my world. I forget all my tensions. I listen to them in every situation I'm in, whether I'm in a pleasant situation or whatever.

Green Day is my life, the blood in my veins, and Billie is the love of my life. Hell yeah, Green Day forever!

12 I made a point to burn all of the photographs, she went away and then I took a different path, I remember the face but I can't recall the name, now I wonder how Whatsername has been... - Whatsername

Great lyrics in this song. My favorite one is "Remember whatever it seems like forever ago... and in the darkest night, if my memory serves me right, I'll never turn back time, forgetting you but not the time."

13 Here comes the rain again, falling from the stars, drenched in my pain again becoming who we are. - Wake Me Up When September Ends

These are the rawest lyrics I have heard from Green Day.

14 Jimmy died today, he blew is brains out into the bay - Homecoming

Gives me chills. A wonderful line.

15 Hold him underwater till the motherf***** drowns - Kill the DJ
16 With money to burn on a minimum wage, well, i don't give a s*** about the modern age - American Eulogy (Mass Hysteria, Modern World)

This is an extremely powerful line. This line brings back one of the biggest themes in American Idiot. The way our world is depending on technological advances, and that we just need to be able to live how we want to.

How society is now is that we all are basically forced to adapt to the modern world. This line is one of the many in American Eulogy that really gives the biggest explanation about nearly the entire album of 21st Century Breakdown.

17 My shadow's the only thing that walks beside me - Boulevard Of Broken Dreams

This line touched my deepest heart.

18 As my memory rests, but never forgets what I lost wake me up when september ends - Wake Me Up When September Ends

I love this quote. It has such a powerful meaning for thoughts of the past!

19 Did you try to live on your own? When you burned down the house and home? Did you stand too close to the fire? Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

This line is the best line Billie ever wrote! Whenever I'm disturbed, this line, in fact, this song, makes me feel like there is someone around me who cares for me. Yeah, this is quite stupid, but Green Day has helped me recover from all the drama of life. They are everything to me!

20 I walk this empty street. On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams When the city sleeps. And I'm the only one and I walk alone. - Boulevard of Broken Dreams
21 Sing us a song of the century, it sings like American eulogy, the dawn of my love and conspiracy, forgotten hope and the class of '13 - American Eulogy
22 D**khead, f**kface, c**ksmoking, motherf**king, a**hole, dirty t**t, waste of semen, hope you die - Platypus (I Hate You)

Cursing rants are always the best, especially when you've only got one minute.

Beautiful. Billie Joe kind of paints a Van Gogh with words. 11/10.

23 Information age of hysteria, It's going out to idiot America - American Idiot
24 I'm the Son of Rage and Love, the Jesus of Suburbia - Jesus of Suburbia

Such a meaningful line from Billie Joe.

25 Do you have the time, to listen to me whine, about nothing and everything all at once - Basket Case
