"86" as written by and Billie Joe/wright Iii Armstrong....
What brings you around?
Did you lose something the last time you were here?
You'll never find it now
It's buried deep with your identity

So stand aside and let the next one pass
Don't let the door kick you in the ass

There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
Don't even try

Exit out the back
And never show your head around again
Purchase your ticket
And quickly take the last train out of town

So stand aside and let the next one pass
Don't let the door kick you in the ass

There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
Don't even try

There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
There's no return from 86
Don't even try

    General CommentThey pretty much got exiled from the Gilman ST club. They were called sellouts and on the wall the words "death to billie joe" were on it. in late 2001, the band played a set at Gilman for the first time in about 9-10 years using instruments from other bands. They played all old songs, and people liked it. So much for "there's no return from 86"
