I just got finished streaming the Wake Me Up When September Ends video, and I have to say I cant believe it. I never knew that "Samuel Bayer' (who directed the other GD vids) was capable of something so intense.

Probably the only music video I've ever watched that had me on the verge of tears. Amazing stuff.

Your thoughts?

Yeah, this video was just...perfect. Sitting next to the Ghost of You video, this video nearly made me cry. Samuel Bayer is just a pure genius.

There was a topic on this, but it was so long ago that posting there would probably be necroposting now.

I personally loved the video. It had me crying by the end. It was actually much better than I had anticipated. I was very dissapointed by the 'American Idiot' video, and the BoBD video was okay, but I thought it could have been much better.

I was pleasantly surprised by the WMUWSE video. It's probably my favorite Green Day video out there now.

Yeah he picked the right actress for the video. Rachel Wood was really emotional.

I cant get over how she looked like Avril Lavigne though. :lol:

She looked like Avril? I didn't notice that. Now I've got to go find it and watch it again. :lol:

Its a great video no doubt,however the people talk to much for a music video :lol:

Its still a great video which points out more of Green Day's anti-war stuff.

Yeah, you're wrong there my friend. They may have played it a lot in England, but they rarely play it here.

Well, I&#39;m not surprised, it&#39;s 7 minutes long, for crying out loud. Maybe they&#39;ll release an edited version with the acting cut out, but then no one would get the idea of the video...I think. :blink:

They don&#39;t play it in the US (not until late at night) because of the battle scene near the end. Not because it was too long.

Ive only seen the edited video and thats without the acting. It didnt make me cry, or on the edge :lol: I like the video though, i like wars :whistle:

Samuel Bayer can direct a nonsensical vid like Holiday, but he still manages to pull off something like this really well. Awesome, awesome vid. I love the setting where GD was playing.

Its a good video. My girlfriend knows Jamie Bell, who&#39;s in it.

But then again, the single hasn&#39;t gotten much airplay which is a shocker to me because that sounds like the perfect song to be ruined by radio play.

Well......actually, I never got that, either.



Because teenage girls are still too busy listening to Boulevard of Broken Dreams to request it.

I like to walk around school with my hood up singing it and listen for more people singing it. It works.

I don&#39;t see how it&#39;s being hardly played in the US since over here it&#39;s being butchered by MTV and the radio.

That is an amazing video&#33;&#33; I could arguably be Green Day&#39;s finest work.

I doubt the full version will get any airtime in the states. videos that are critical of the war in any way don&#39;t get the airtime that they deserve. MTV is too busy to play videos, and I am a little surprised that I have not seen it on Fuse yet to be honest.

That&#39;s one of the Jason&#39;s. He&#39;s been around since the Live Without Warning tour. If you listen through American Idiot, you would notice that there are more than one guitars playing. So that&#39;s why he&#39;s there. They&#39;re many other people that are on tour with Green Day to play extra instruments like the piano.
