Green Day are back with new album 21st Century Breakdown. Produced by Butch Vig the March of the Dog Lyrics hint at Pink Floy's Dogs of War but the song's lyrics really reflect an a concern with religtion:
"“I want to know who’s allowed to breed/All the dogs who never learned to read/Missionaries, politicians/And the cops of a new religion.”
According to Rolling Stone magazine It’s a biting indictment of contemporary religion that starts intense and never lets up, even for a marching-drum bridge."
Hard and fast from start to finish, this spiky four-and-a-half-minute tune finds Armstrong ranting, "I threw my conscience in the river in the shadow of doubt," referencing the famous Biblical passage, Psalm 23:4, which reads, "I will walk through the valley of the shadow of death... I will fear no evil."
