    Not seeing much Green Day love, so I thought I'd make a thread about their new single. Personally, I've been playing it practically non-stop for a few days now; such a great tune and the video is amazing. I pretty much see this as their first single off their new album.

    So, what do guys think. I'll post a link:

    I LOVE this song. Actually I love the whole album and every other of their albums. Guess I'm just a little obsessive!
    But, yes, 21 Guns! Definitely amazing =D

    Also, I love how they make the actors in the video look like the album cover. The pyrotechnics are brilliant too. Have you seen the 'making of 21 Guns' video on youtube? Tre's hilarious as always.

    Wow, you sound like a huge fan. Good on you! I didn't notice the two actors, no. That's actually very smart and very cool. And I shall check out that video, thanks.

    Excellent, so the general consensus so far is positive. :cool:

    Love Green Day, and this song's great, but I find the chorus gringe-worthy. The random high pitched parts would sound much better if he was a girl, but he really isn't :p:

    "Do you know what's worth fighting for?
    When it's not worth dying for?
    Does it take your breath away
    And you feel yourself suffocating?
    Does the pain weigh out the pride?
    And you look for a place to hide?
    Did someone break your heart inside?
    You're in ruins"

    The lyrics to this song sound like they were written by a 13 year old. I honestly feel embarassed for the band when I hear this song.

    That's probably because they suck.

    In what way do these lyrics seem like they were written by a 13 year old?

    1. The lyrics sound like they're trying too hard to be profound and deep
    2. The rhymes are REALLY bad (own home stone. die try died. Control toll soul.)
    3. The rhyme structure is inconsistant.

    1. I really don't see that they are trying too hard to be deep and profound. They make sense and it's quite easy to understand what the song is about.

    2. None of the rhymes feel forced or seem out of place. I think that the lyrics flow really well and that everything is coherent.

    3. Does the rhyme structure have to be completely consistent? They are song lyrics not some highfaluting poem.

    I really don't see any of the lyrics as being an embarrassment to the band.
