American Idiot
Green Day Lyrics


Don't wanna be an American idiot
Don't want a nation under the new mania
Hey can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind-fuck America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Well maybe I'm the faggot America
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda
Now everybody do the propaganda
And sing along to the age of paranoia

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

Don't wanna be an American idiot
One nation controlled by the media
Information Age of hysteria
It's calling out to idiot America

Welcome to a new kind of tension
All across the alien nation
Where everything isn't meant to be okay
Television dreams of tomorrow
We're not the ones who're meant to follow
For that's enough to argue

A Green Day song that just gets better with age. Thats quite common with this band. Songs that stand the test of time.

@NONNO COZZALO Sorry, aber der letzte Satz gibt in Google Translate keinen Sinn. Irgendwas mit "familienfreundlich". Und wer meint, ein Punk-Song müsse familienfreundlich sein, hat den Sinn von Punk nicht verstanden.

NONNO COZZALO

@MyRegardsToTheDodo è vero la parte in cui dice " fuck" è censurata.
C'é un vuoto....
Ma il family friendly si può fare I cazzi suoi almeno nelle canzoni dei green day?

One of the great things about Green Day (beyond their music of course), is that unlike other punk rock bands at the time, they didn't take themself so seriously that they always had to be edgy. And this song and music video perfectly shows the serious and fun sides of Green Day.
