    Maybe September fits in better becasue it has three syllables. Or maybe there is no reason.

    I guess summer's the height of fun and revelry and Green Day's sick of childish pleasures and cannot wait to grow up. But you know, read whatever you want into the lyrics - it's open to multiple interpretations, I'm sure.

    Well seeing as they link the song with ideas of terrorism and terrorist attacks, I figured september was a connction with the 9/11 attacks. (*If you've seen the video you will understand.)

    Yeah it must've been about September 11th. I hate that video, it's so soppy and cheesy and the girl has a voice like a man. I jumped when I first heard her speak.

    It's nothing to do with 9/11. Billy Joe's father died in September.

    People, this song has nothing to do with September 11th.

    This song was written about the death of Billy Joes father, who died 20 years ago (at the time of writing the song in 2003)

    I'm in agreement with Mrs.Political.

    The fact that the "soldier" is on a tour of duty, and 'when September Ends' is when He gets back home?
