Green Day Rockers Recruit Bell And Wood For New Video

The members of GREEN DAY have recruited teen screen stars JAMIE BELL and EVAN RACHEL WOOD to add a dramatic touch to the video for their haunting song WAKE ME UP WHEN SEPTEMBER ENDS.

The track is about frontman BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG's father passing away - and the video features speaking roles by Bell and Wood, who portray young lovers.

Director SAMUEL BAYER says, "We wanted to make a mini-movie about a boy and a girl that fall in love and have the rest of their lives ahead of them, but the boy joins the Army and leaves her behind to go to war. It's my interpretation of Billie Joe's very personal song."

At a taping of VH1's STORYTELLERS in February (05), Armstrong called the track the most autobiographical - and difficult - song he's ever written, explaining, "I've never tackled an issue about that - about singing about my father. It's hard to sing, but definitely therapeutic, because it deals with the passing of someone that you love."
