    These are the lyrics of Green Day's new song "American Idiot". This pisses me off and I think we should find a way to boycott those lymie bastards.


    GREEN DAY LYRICS

    "American Idiot"

    Don't wanna be an American idiot.
    Don't want a nation that under the new media.
    And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
    The subliminal mindfuck America.

    Welcome to a new kind of tension.
    All across the alien nation.
    Everything isn't meant to be okay.
    Television dreams of tomorrow.
    We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
    Convincing them to walk you.

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

    Welcome to a new kind of tension.
    All across the alien nation.
    Everything isn't meant to be okay.
    Television dreams of tomorrow.
    We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
    Convincing them to walk you.

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

    Welcome to a new kind of tension.
    All across the alien nation.
    Everything isn't meant to be okay.
    Television dreams of tomorrow.
    We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
    Convincing them to walk you.

    short, simple, hard played, politicly or socialy motivated, sounds like real punk rock to me, in spite of the fact the greenday has been one of the biggest poser bands of the last decade. I don't like them, but I can recognise what they are trying to do. Bad Religion is a real punk band, in spite of the fac that they are a bunch of self important assholes, who think thier brand of punk is the only brand. Never mind that Brian talks way to much shit, including about our local scene wich gave him his start. Still fits the criteria, even if I don't like them.

    Tell me though, what do you think real punk rock is? I'm curious, because everytime somebody trys to call me on this, they've been wrong.

    If you are really pissed, just throw chunks of sod an mud at them the next time they have a concert. I'm sure that they will get pissed again and leave the stage.

    Another Anti Bush song... Maybe some American's will take the hint that maybe theres something wrong with the policies of their President... I've never heard so many negative songs about one single president..

    There is an election coming up... There is a push on for real change in America and everyone, including Green Day, who is in favour of a new 'better' president is doing everything they can to help..

    Anyone happen to catch NOFX's tv debut on Conan a few weeks ago..?

    In my experience when you try to rip on someone or something about being dumb, or in this case, being 'American Idiots', its always good to use proper english to save yourself from looking like the idiot... :bigthumb:
