Lyrics
Who the hell are you to tell me what I am
And what's my master plan
What makes you think that it includes you?
Self-righteous wealth
Stop flattering yourself
So when the smoke clears here I am
Your reject all-American

Sucking up you social sect
Making you a nervous wreck
To hell and back and hell again I've gone
You're not my type
Not my type

What's the difference between you and me?
I do what I want, and you do what you're told
So listen up and shut the hell up
It ain't no big deal
And I'll see you in hell
So when the smoke clears here I am
Your reject all-American

Falling from grace, right on my face
To hell and back and hell again I've gone
Song Meaning
The origins of this song can be traced back to a fan letter received by Billie Joe Armstrong. In this letter, the mother of a little boy chastises Billie Joe regarding the content of the band's album, "Insomniac." She says that he should reconsider the language and tone he uses, and that she won't ever buy any of Green Day's CDs in the future.

As a reaction to the letter, Billie Joe Armstrong wrote this song. In it, he plainly states that he won't change the way he operates just because of one person's disapproval. He sarcastically calls himself a "reject all-American," which shows his acceptance of this label.
