Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer and guitarist of Berkeley-based Green Day reportedly wrote "Wake Me Up When September Ends" in memory of his father who died when Armstrong was 10. It's a simple, repetitive tune, and in this live version, recorded during 2009-2010 the band's "21st Century Breakdown" tour, the crowd enthusiastically accompanies Armstrong throughout the otherwise stark voice-and-guitar first half of the song. The recording has all of the clarity and immediacy you want from a live show, and although the arrangement is nearly identical to the studio version, the song captured live has even more power than the original. Definitely recommended for fans of the band or this particular song.

This was purchased as a gift. Everything looks and works as advertised. I would have heard back by now if there were any problems. They loved this gift!

Just didn't think much of the song in a live setting. I wasn't too impressed with this recording, no fault to the provider.

There is no question that when it has came down rock music, Green Day has been honestly one of the powerful groups out there right now. Whether it has been their acclaimed records like 21st Century Breakdown, or their music being showcased on Broadway with American Idiot, Billie Joe & company have shown no signs of slowing down when it has came down to great music. That has shown with their live rendition of their American Idiot classic, Wake Me Up When September Ends, on their live album, Awesome As F***. My only gripe about the track is that I thought it was going to be longer. It isn't bad as a freebie. But, if you're new to Green Day, you should stick with the original recording of the song from American Idiot. Still, for longtime Green Day fans, this is a nice download to tide them over, until Green Day comes back alive and kicking with something brand new.
