Having a Blast
Green Day Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm taking all you down with me
Explosives duct taped to my spine
Nothing's gonna change my mind
I won't listen to anyone's last words
There's nothing left for you to say
Soon you'll be dead anyway

Well, no one is getting out alive
This time I've really lost my mind and I don't care
So close your eyes and kiss yourself goodbye
And think about the times you spent and what they've ment
To me it's nothing
To me it's nothing
To me it's nothing
To me it's nothing

I'm losing all my happiness
The happiness you pinned on me
Loneliness still comforts me
My anger dwells inside of me
I'm taking it all out on you
And all the shit you put me through

Well, no one here is getting out alive
This time I've really lost my mind and I don't care
So close your eyes and kiss yourself goodbye
And think about the times we spent and what they've ment
To me it's nothing
To me it's nothing
To me it's nothing
To me it's nothing

Do you ever think back to another time
Does it bring you so down that you thought you lost your mind?
Do you ever want to lead a long trail of destruction
And mow down any bullshit that confronts you
Do you ever build up all the small things in your head
To make one problem that adds up to nothing
To me it's nothing




To me it's nothing
To me it's nothing

Overall Meaning

Green Day's song Having a Blast seems to be about someone who has snapped and is planning to take others down with them. The first stanza portrays this idea, with lyrics such as "I'm taking all you down with me" and "soon you'll be dead anyway." The singer in the song has explosives duct taped to their spine and refuses to listen to anyone's attempts at persuading them to stop.


The second stanza seems to be about the singer's mental state. They have lost their happiness and are now taking out their anger on others. The lines "loneliness still comforts me" and "my anger dwells inside of me" are particularly telling.


In the final stanza, the singer asks if the listener has ever felt like they have lost their mind, or if they want to "lead a long trail of destruction." They also ask if the listener ever builds up small problems in their head to make one big one, which to them ultimately means nothing. The singer seems to be trying to justify their actions by suggesting that others might understand their mindset.


Overall, the song seems to be exploring themes such as mental health, violence, and the way our experiences shape who we are.

@Fa5Squad

If you kids want a vibe of the 90s listen to this album. The chorus has such a vibe that i cant explain, same with macy’s day parade. I would blast macy in the morning getting ready for high school back in 04.

Ps: i was playin this song on my guitar the other day 🤘

@Memorh19

Also "She". Green Day is a great band!!

@thearsweirdvideoclub8663

The initial chorus melody makes me feel nostalgic for some reason

@stardustspeedway

Such a timeless classic. This whole album is amazing from beginning to end. One of the very few albums for me where every song is a banger.

@VelcroKittie

Really is isn't it? Solid all the way through.

@tonywhite8162

One of the few you must not finish

@guilhermesemi8644
