Green Day still has doubts

Billie Joe Armstrong is on the latest episode of Words and Music Audible. He tells the story of how he was so unsure that people would like his song 'Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)' he had to chug a beer before performing it for the first time live. He actually thought the audience would throw bottles at him. What??!! you say. It's such a good song! He didn't know we'd all think that! Now that we've heard that song a billion times it's hard to imagine Billie somehow not knowing how great it is. That's art. It takes courage to put your creations out there for the world to judge. Even after all the success that Green Day had before he wrote that song, Billie Joe still had doubts that his music would resonate with his audience. Be brave, the world needs art and music.
