Kill the DJ lyrics by Green Day

Kill the DJ could almost be described as dance song but featuring  power-drill guitars. Billie Joe described to Rolling Stone Magazine that Mike asked him to "write a song with a four-on-the-floor rhythm." He suggests Kill the DJ is 'kind of like Sandinista!, Ian Dury's "Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll" and the Tom Tom Club song, "Genius of Love."'

Who is the DJ that Green Day want to kill? 

Billie Joe has said that the song is about 'static and noise' and that it's 'a song about being drunk, going through this chaos, feeling fucked up and all you want to do is get more drunk: "I don't even want to know about it anymore."'

Kill the DJ lyrics from Green Day's Uno album.

(This is a rough as guts version . Please leave corrections in the comments!)

Walking after dark
In the New York City park
Your thoughts are so unholy
In the holiness of old
On with Christian soldiers
Filled with jivin' mind control

The bull left on the dance floor
Ridin', runnin' red
The bullet that you asked for's killing you to death
Unless you....

Someone kill the DJ, someone shoot the DJ
Someone kill the DJ,  someone shoot the DJ
Someone kill the DJ,  someone shoot the DJ
Voices in my head are saying, "Shoot the DJ down."

We are the vultures
The dirtiest kind
They cut you once
In your heart and your mind

Walking after dark
In the New York City park
I'll pick up what's left in the club, a pocket full of pills
Sodom and Gommorah, in the century of thrills

The bull left on the dance floor
Ridin', runnin' red
The bullet that you asked for, killing you to death
Unless you…

Someone kill the DJ,  someone shoot the DJ  x three
Hold him under water til he suffocates and drowns

We are the vultures
The dirtiest kind
We'll cut you once
In your heart and your mind

OOOHHHHHHH

Shit's about to get you boy
Shoot the DJ down

Repeat chorus

Voices in my head say shoot the DJ down

Check out the lyrics to another song from Greenday's Uno album, Fuck Time.

  13. I think "Bull" in the section: "The bull left on the dance floor
    Ridin', runnin' red" is actually supposed to be the word "blood".

  14. This isn't the album version, its the radio edit, if you want the original version this is the chorus:
    Someone kill the DJ, Shoot the f***ing DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, Shoot the f***ing DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, Shoot the f***ing DJ
    Voices in my head are saying Shoot that f***er down

    and where you've put "hold him underwater 'til he suffocates and drowns" its:
    Hold him under water 'til that motherf***er drowns

  16. AnonymousAugust 14, 2012 3:46 PM's version matches almost exactly with what I hear.

    "On with Christian Soldiers" is definitely "Onwards Christian Soldiers"

    "We'll cut you once" is "The culture war's"

    "Unless you..." sounds more like "And lets see" to me, though I'm far less sure of this one.

    "In the holiness of old" could be "in the holiest of old" - there is definitely no "n" pronounced, nor is there a final "t" - so either fits with the audio. One we have a live version to listen to we'll know, but it would be harder to miss the "n" in holiness than it would be to end an "st" word with just an "s."

  17. It's very un-GreenDay-ish, but I like it! Sounds a bit like Maroon Five :)

  19. Hey, Jack White, what is this, a fucking...

    you know what, Green Day, just go lick your own cocks and FUCK yourself with this "I Bought Piranhas" horseshit

    I swear to Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior that I am sick of this fucking copy-paste fucking album already

    Please just STOP all the fucking drinking and write ONE good song, for the love of GOD, dude

    (And I also LOVE the White Stripes almost as much as I love Green Day, too, you drunk fucking out-of-control fucking drug-user fucking asshole, what is this bullshit for real)
