This is such a brilliant tribute to all those brave and never forgotten heroes. Wootton Bassett will always be special and not just to the people that live there.this single just enhances how the whole town always come together and always have for our fallen heroes. Well done and good luck. Christine.x
@greendaytone I went to the page and saw what you said about it. No clue what it was about, so I watched the video and am blown away. @pixgreenday
@greendaytone I kept getting goosebumps over who and what came on-screen from the sides. Then the memorial stone... wow. @pixgreenday

Thanks to Paul Crouch for posting this. Great choice for Xmas Number One!
"I really enjoyed the day (playing drums in the street along with the other five was a rare treat) and the atmosphere there was very friendly, it was great to see so many people turning up to support the cause and sticking with it despite the rain. You must be pleased with the final result. All the best - Rick"

"Green Day Authority is delighted to be working alongside Wootton Bassett Rocks to help them achieve their goal of raising £1 million to go towards military charities for returning soldiers. Green Day fans all around the world can relate to the feelings of loss and despair that result from wars, and we want to help wherever we can to show our support for the people that make it home after putting their lives on the line fighting for their country's freedom."

"When I first saw the video to WB Rocks cover of Wake Me Up When September Ends, it blew me away! It was inspiring to see a community come together like that for a cause such as this. It's the kind of spirit and involvement that we try to encourage on our site with The Green Day Community. The video itself really reminded me of the 'American Idiot The Musical' version of the song, and it's extremely uplifting for a song with sad meaning behind it."
