American Eulogy Part One: Mass Hysteria Lyrics Greenday

Green Day have bravely used the term 'niggers' in the lyric. It will be interesting to see how people react to it.


American Eulogy Lyric:

Sing us the song of the century
That sings like American eulogy
The dawn of my love and conspiracy
Of forgotten hope and the class of 13
Tell me a story into that goodnight
Sing us a song for me

Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria

Red alert is the color of panic
Elevated to the point of static
Beating into the hearts of the fanatics
And the neighborhood's a loaded gun
Idle thought leads to full-throttle screaming
And the welfare is asphyxiating
Mass confusion is all the new rage
And it's creating a feeding ground
For the bottom feeders of hysteria

Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria

True sounds of maniacal laughter
And the deaf-mute is misleading the choir
The punch line is a natural disaster
And it's sung by the unemployed
Fight fire with a riot
The class war is hanging on a wire
Because the martyr is a compulsive liar
When he said
"It's just a bunch of niggers throwing gas into the hysteria"

Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria
Mass Hysteria

There's a disturbance on the oceanside
They tapped into the reserve
The static response is so unclear now
Mayday this is not a test!
As the neighborhood burns, American is falling
Vigilantes warning you
Calling Christian and Gloria

  1. They're not using the word as if they have said it, or at least that's what I perceive from the song. So I think nothing's gonna happen :)

  3. I'm not starting nething! Green Day have. The term is out there, it will be commented on, here or eleshwere. It's also clear the song use's it a quote. That said, Green Day have still used the quote to make a point.

    I'm interested in the reaction to this use - Think how Peter Jackon's production of new film Dam Busters is having difficulty with how the dog's name is to be treated as it was called 'Nigger' in the original film http://www.flicks.co.nz/news/no-nigger-for-dam-busters/

    Or compare to the fuss that was made when GNR released 'one in a million' that song refered to niggers AND faggots - and made #5 on the Bill Board.

    Is Green Day being brave to make a point they care about or are they using the word to upset and court publicity?

  9. I just think they were using the word Nigger
    to proove that When you hear the word nigger you feel disgusted,
    but when your in gangs and stuff,its "okay" to use it because
    gangs can cause extreme Hysteria.

    However,its not written solely on gangs,
    i thinkit been written about how people are becoming
    violent,carelss,selfish and greedy.

  10. How about the deeper meaning of the song! Really scary that they would be singing about this, but it IS coming...

    First of all, American Eulogy, A eulogy is a speech or writing in praise of a person or thing, especially one recently deceased or retired



    Then it continues with Mass Hysteria-The masses being Hysterical, The second verse goes on to say Idle thoughts lead to full throttle screaming: Comfy Satisfied Americans suddenly experiencing what most of the rest of the world does on a daily basis-Hunger-Starvation-Chaos. 99% Of Americans have never even come close to real hunger, or real discomfort.

    They say welfare is asphyxiating, which means sucking dry, sucking dry the economy, the hard workers the middle class

    Mass confusion is creating a feeding ground for the bottom feeders, The survivors who take your food and break into your home because they ARE bottom feeders trying to survive

    The deaf mute is misleading the choir, our government is misleading us, and the punch line is "A Natural Disaster!" (That's why there's a shortage of food and chaos has broken out. So. For a small fee (All your freedom) The government will make it allllll better (; I love it next he sais "And it's sung by the unemployed" (they swallowed it hook line and sinker that they actually SING it lol)

    Mayday this is not a test!
    As the neighborhood burns, American is falling
    Vigilantes warning you
    Calling Christian and Gloria

    I don't wanna live in the modern world
    { From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/g/green-day-lyrics/mass-hysteria-lyrics.html }
    I don't wanna live in the modern world
    I don't wanna live in the modern world
    I don't wanna live in the modern world

    Well, I'm the class of 13 in the era of dissent
    A hostage of the soul on the strike to pay the rent
    The last of the rebels without a common ground
    I'm gonna light a fire into the underground, well,

    I don't wanna live in the modern world
    I don't wanna live in the modern world
    I don't wanna live in the modern world
    I don't wanna live in the modern world

    I am a nation without burecratic ties
    Deny the allegation as its rainin'
    Fuckin' lies!

    Well i wanna take a ride through the Great Divide
    The army up-to-date and the neogentrified
    The high-definition for the lower resident
    Where the value of your mind is not held in contempt

    I can hear the sound of a beatin' heart
    It bleeds beyond a system that is fallin' apart
    With money to burn on a minimum wage
    Well i don't give a shit about the modern age!

    I don't wanna live in a modern world
    I don't wanna live in a modern world
    I don't wanna live in a modern world
    I don't wanna live in a modern world

    (Mass hysteria)
    I don't wanna live in a modern world
    (mass hysteria)
    I don't wanna live in a modern world
    (mass hysteria)
    I don't wanna live in a modern world
    (Mass hysteria)
    I don't wanna live in a modern world
