When questioned why the album has had such a lasting legacy to be included in the Library of Congress, Billie Joe said “the lyrics are just so honest and from where my life was at that time. We always wanted to be in this band forever, I think in the back of our minds was to be able to play music together for the rest of our lives. So that’s, that’s quite a goal when you’re 20 or 21 years old. But, you know, we’ve managed to do it, and it’s just been an amazing journey so far.”
