The Static Age Lyrics Green Day

The Static Age is from Green Day's album 21st Century Breakdown. The lyrics appear to suggest the character cannot get any meaning from the world's means of communication as there is too much static - which is in the form of religion, advertising and corporate giant market power e.g. the coca cola reference.

The Static Age Lyrics:
Can you hear the sound of the static noise?
Blasting out in stereo
Cater to the class and the paranoid
Music to my nervous system
Advertising love and religion
Murder on the airwaves
Slogans on the brink of corruption
Vision of blasphemy, war and peace
Screaming at you

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

Billboard on the rise in the dawn's landscape
Working your insanity
Tragic a'la madness and concrete
Coca Cola execution
Conscience on a cross and
You're hearts in a vice
Squeezing out your state of mind
Are what you own that you cannot buy?
What a fucking tragedy, strategy
Screaming at you.

green day 21st century breakdown cover

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

Hey hey it's the static age
This is how the west was won
Hey hey it's the static age millennium

All I want to know
Is a God-damned thing
Not what's in the medicine
All I want to do is
I want to breathe
Batteries are not included
What's the latest way that a man can die
Screaming hallelujah?
Singing out "The dawn's early light"
The silence of the rotten, forgotten
Screaming at you.

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

I can't see a thing in the video
I can't hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age
The static age

  2. Yep, anything that sounds like Bad Religion is GREAT and this definitely qualifies. I just hope Green Day doesn't get too soft because there are a few songs on this album that indicate they are leaning in that directions (i.e. 21 guns, Last Night on Earth).

  8. The whole thing sounds like warning. Peacemaker sounds like deadbeat holiday.

  15. Yeah this and American Eulogy are two huge ripoffs from Warning, but whatever it's not like a band can't use old melodies.
