lyrics to Green Day's bang bang song


Bang Bang song lyrics by Green Day

Unless you're a bit of a basket case or an American Idiot, you will not have missed the fact the the greatest punk (!) band to have survived the 1990's, Green Day have announced a new song called Bang Bang from the Revolution Radio album.

The song is a social commentary s about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media.

Green Day's singer Billie Joe Armstrong said of Bang Bang's meaning "There's this sort of rage happening, but it's also now being filmed and we all have ourselves under surveillance."

He further said the song is from the view point of a killer who is contemplating or about to commit a mass killing:  "I don't know why someone would ever do something that horrific because I know I never would. It's just sort of meant to also reflect the culture a little bit without sounding pretentious."

Lyrics to Bang Bang by Green Day
Spoken word introduction 
/This is definitely not the first video to surface of an execution. ...of men, they claimed responsibility for the executions. Described as severely mentally disturbed. Videos show another hostage executed by the terrorist group. Deserve to be annihilated./
Billie-Joe sings:

I get my kicks and I wanna start a rager
I wanna dance like I'm on the video
I got a fever for the violent behavior
I'm sweatin' bullets like a modern Rome
Bang, bang, give me fame
Shoot me up to entertain
I am a semi-automatic lonely boy
You're dead, I'm well fed
Give me death or give me head
Daddy's little psycho and mommy's little soldier

I testify like a lullaby of memories
Broadcasting live and it's on my radio
I got my photobomb, I got my Vietnam
I love a lie just like anybody else

Bang, bang, give me fame
Shoot me up to entertain
I am a semi-automatic lonely boy
You're dead, I'm well fed


Give me death or give me head
Broadcasting from my room and playin' with my toys
I wanna be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
Hoorah, bang, bang, hoorah, bang, bang, the hero of the hour
Daddy's little psycho and mommy's little soldier

I wanna be like the soldiers on the screen
It's my private movie (Holy War)
Oh baby, baby, this is Viva Vendetta
Oh this is love or it's World War Zero

I wanna be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
Hoorah, bang, bang, hoorah, bang, bang, the hero of the hour
Daddy's little psycho and mommy's little soldier
I wanna be a celebrity martyr
The leading man in my own private drama
Hoorah, bang, bang, hoorah, bang, bang, the hero of the hour
Daddy's little psycho and mommy's little soldier
