“Bang Bang” – Green Day [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

Green Day “Bang Bang” Lyrics
[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.]

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 Romeo

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

Green Day “Bang Bang” Video Credits

Green Day have shared a music video for “Bang Bang,” the lead single from their upcoming album, Revolution Radio. Watch the video above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

This is the band’s first new music since 2012 (aside from last year’s holiday jam “Xmas Time of the Year”), and serves as the first single to the group’s upcoming album Revolution Radio — scheduled to be released on October 7, 2016.

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong spoke with Rolling Stone about the song’s meaning and why he chose to write something from the view of a mass shooter:

It’s about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media. There’s this sort of rage happening, but it’s also now being filmed and we all have ourselves under surveillance. To me, that is so twisted. To get into the brain of someone like that was freaky. It freaked me out. After I wrote it, all I wanted to do was get that out of my brain because it just freaked me out.

Directed by Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, the action-packed video shows three costumed people dressed as the band and robbing a bank. When they get away with the loot, they swing by a rocking house party where Green Day is playing.

Pick up Revolution Radio on Amazon.
