Green Day's Troubled Times lyrics

A song from the Rev Rad / Revolution Radio album by Green Day.

Troubled Times was inspired by the Paris terrorist attach on the concert goers at the Eagles of Death Metal show.

Trouble Times is exactly about what it seems to be. Billie-Joe is making a commentary on the current state of America and the world at large  - it's politics, religions and it's powers and how they are appear to be falling so many people.

This is actually part of the theme of the album from which the song comes - Bang Bang in particular serves notices that Green Day is sick of the media endowed celebrity status given to those who commit mass murder using guns.

This should be no surprised to anyone as Green Day's American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown albums have covered these concepts a fair but - 21 Guns being an obvious consideration of the use of guns and war.

Green Day 'Too dumb to die' lyrics

'Too dumb to die' is a song from Green Day's Revolution Radio album. The song's lyrics are demonstrative of the kind of ethic, that if you're gonna be dumb you gotta be tough.

But it's more than that.

You could argue that it's a 'masses against the classes' type mentality but what really songwriter Billie-Joe is saying is that while there's a lot of shit going on in this world (see the lyrics of Bang Bang for his current views), there's a certain kind of population that just won't quit, even though they possibly should.

The song's title, of course, a play on the expression, too young too die. In the sense of Tre was a good bastard, he was too young to die.

Maybe.

Green Day's Youngblood lyrics.

Youngblood lyrics Green Day

Not to be confused with the John Rambo film, First Blood! Young Blood is a song from Green Day's 12th studio album, Radio Revolution.

Young Blood was self produced by Green Day after they decided to take a break from their long time producer and friend, Rob Cavallo.

Youngbloods are usually referred to as up and comers with drive and determination, a trait often found in young people. If you want to get cryptic, this song called perhaps be a reference to Fall Out Boy as their fans have been known to be referred to as youngbloods. Billie Joe has spoken of wanting to claim back what pop punks means from bands such as Fall Out Boy. We could of course be reading way too much into the song's meaning!

Bouncing Off the Wall lyrics by Green Day

When someone is described as bouncing of the walls, it's often used an expression to convey that that person appears to be exhibiting nervous excitement or agitation. Oft borne from a sense of restlessness and an itching just to get out side and get on with it - hence bouncing off the walls.

Green Day's song captures this feeling.
