Every thing comes back to GREEN DAY!!!


I am a 90s kid. ( I love being called kid, growing up is boring). I grew up with Green Day. Punk rock ruled our generation. Every Goddamn person wanted to have a picture with Guitar and wanted to look cool…… And then came new singers, new trends, but for me there was just one God!!!!

I met this girl in my college. We got along well, and now it really surprises me. She was such a good girl, and I was such a brat, I still am. We talked for hours, we roamed around the city, we watched movies and did all clichรฉd things people in relationship do. Everything was so fine, till she started changing things,changing me.

” you got to stop, cussing.(I cuss in a very sophisticated manner, no MC BC)”

Very well I thought,I love her, I can do this much for her.

She was on a drive to make me a gentleman, and Green Day doesn’t sound like a gentleman’s band. She said.

“Why don’t you listen to 1D or Arijit Singh. Green day fills your head anarchical ideas”

Damn it couldn’t believe she said that.

She deleted all Green Day songs from my phone, from my iPad, from my Computer

I loved her, and accepted her choices, 1D and Arijit Singh. They sure create very Good music, but for a heart that’s grenade shaped, you need band like Green Day.

From my hairstyle to my wallpaper everything changed. And I became a different person, a person who loved someone else so much that he forgot to love himself.

And one day we split.

And I was sitting in my room, wondering what was happening. Tears rolled down my cheek, not because she left me, but because I left myself. I distanced myself so much that now I was different person altogether. A space on the wall which once bore a 21st century breakdown poster, I was looking at it.

I felt some song in my heart, and Armstrong was shouting in my head!!!

wearing my heart on the noose, revolutions and insurgencies, blood booze and sex and too dumb to die

I had come back to Green Day!!! I was once again Ishan…. The raw, the wild, the untamed.

What I learnt is; ย don’t change, if it doesnt come from inside. Maybe someday, I’d like to be a gentleman, when I’d grow up, when I’d embrace responsibilities. But for now , let me be punk, let me be a brat, let me love Green Day.

    Quite a story Ishan. I guess people do change sometimes. But as you said one shouldn’t leave oneself in order to change.

      Exactly…. There will be a person who will love you for what you are……
      Self analysed changes are one thing and changing to impress someone is another

    One should never change themselves for others, unless it’s only to better yourself.

    Haha,what actually it was. Rather than a relationship it was like a movie drama which ends in next few hours. I am sorry,I am no one to say and neither have any experience but a relationship is like a plant it needs to be nurture. But that doesn’t mean that after few days you are not liking that white rose plant and you will cut off and try to change its color to red or yellow eventually it will have the same color as it was earlier. Don’t ever change for anyone unless you want to.๐Ÿ‘โœŒ

      Life is a drama….. Purva๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ
      But the crux is in a relationship both are free to have their own favorites and their likes,things start getting messy if you interfere…..
