DON’T WANNA BE AN AMERICAN IDIOT

*stands on chair*

ONE NATION CONTROLLED BY THE MEDIA 

*kicks over lamp*

INFORMATION AGE OF HYSTERIA

*punches wall*

IT’S CALLING OUT TO IDIOT AMERICA

Green Day wrote this song during W’s administration. There are references in the song to toxic masculinity (non-Republican men were called f******s), media black-outs, “free speech zones”, hating the French (really really hating the French - “freedom fries” anyone?), and the glorification of ignorance.  I’m not saying W is the same as Trump, but I am saying this may be a good time to pop in this album and other mid-2000s protest music because it will probably speak deeply to you. 

YOU GONNA DIE GONNA DIE GONNA DIE FOR YOUR GOVERNMENT DIE FOR YOUR COUNTRY THAT’S SHIT
