About The Song

American Idiot - Green Day

The first line of the song "Don't want to be an american idiot" really sums up how Green Day feels about America. By listening to the rest of the song, it's pretty clear why Green Day feels the way they do and why you should also. Afterall, they took the time to make an entire album called "American Idiot" in an attempt to make people understand the truth, especially about the media.

The second line of the song is "Don't want a nation under the new media." Followed by "And can you hear the sound of hysteria? The subliminal mind fuck America." The lyrics are very in-your-face so that people can "get it" the first time they hear it. By leaving no room for interpretation also leaves less room for misunderstanding. Fortunately, the truth reflects on television sometimes through musicians like Green Day.
