Bang Bang lyrics by Green Day

Green Day have announced their first single since their triple whammy series of of albums were released (Uno, Dos and Tre!) -  "Bang Bang" is going to have an August 11 release.

Those albums turned out to be what one could call a 'comfortable' Green Day musical venture - nothing offensive, nothing amazing save for a couple of cool songs (Save the DJ...) but not necessarily the best collection of Green Day songs - given that, we are quite excited Green Day are releasing the new song 'Bang Bang'.



Yes, it’s been a long time between drinks for Green Day releasing a new single so fans are pretty happy about the announcement of Bang Bang.

Judging from the social media reaction the song will be a big hit and top the charts.


Green Day have had a lot going on behind the scenes (and in front) since their last trio of albums. Drug abuse and family sickness (good riddance!) have been faced head on by the band so it’s pretty cool the Billie-Joe, Mike and Tre are back on track as a power trio. Jason White appears to have dropped out from the official line up but is still prowling around.

The announcement of the new song signalled that Green Day have recorded a new full length album called Revolution Radio and that Bang Bang is the first single.

Lyrics to Bang Bang by Green Day

The lyrics to Green Day's Bang 
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


What do the lyrics to Bang Bang mean?

This is what Billie-Joe said about the song to Rolling Stone Magazine:

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
Here's the single's cover art - note that the words Rev Rad again appear... It's been confirmed that Rev Rad is short for Revolution Radio, the name of Green Day's new album. 



No word yet from the band's management about what they think of the Easter Eggs from Mortal Engines.
