Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
Scream, with your hands up in the sky
Like you want to testify
For the life that's been deleted
Sing, like a rebel's lullaby
Under the stars and stripes...

Revolution Radio

Green Day


[Verse 1]
Scream, with your hands up in the sky
Like you want to testify
For the life that's been deleted
Sing, like a rebel's lullaby
Under the stars and stripes
For the lost souls that were cheated
We will be seen but not be heard

[Chorus]
We are Revolution Radio
Operation 'No Control'
And the headline 'My love's bullet proof'
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutantes in surgery
And the headline 'Legalize the truth'

[Verse 2]
Give me rage, like there's tear gas in the crowd
Do you wanna live out loud?
But the air is barely breathing
Rise of the slums to the obsolete
The dawn of the new airwaves for the anti-social media

[Chorus]
We are Revolution Radio
Operation 'No Control'
And the headline 'My love's bullet proof'
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutantes in surgery
And the headline 'Legalize the truth'

[Bridge]
We will be seen but not be heard
We are the songs of the disturbed

[Chorus - Revised]
We are Revolution Radio
Operation 'No Control'
And the headline 'My love's bullet proof'
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Debutantes in surgery
And the headline 'Legalize the truth'

"Revolution Radio" Track Info



The title track for the 12th album from Green Day, “Revolution Radio” was released as a single on Sept. 9th 2016.

It continues, in the same line as the previous single, “Bang Bang”, lashing out against social media, but this time in a much more positive and anthemic instance.

Lyrics such as ‘Legalize the truth' and ‘Under the stars and stripes' channel the same anti-establishment rage that filled previous singles such as “Holiday” and “Minority”, while lines of the likes of ‘My love's bullet-proof' and ‘We are the songs of the disturbed' are direct reminiscent of the romance-fueled revolution that served as a theme for the band's 2009 rock opera, 21st Century Breakdown, from which the first single was “Know Your Enemy”, with a similar rhetorical and musical approach, as well as some topics.

Rise of the slums to the obsolete.

While a contradiction, giving orders to start rebellion seems to work as a topic for Green Day:

So rally up the demons of your soul.

There are similar images of police violence, for example in this line:

Give me rage like there's tear gas in the crowd.

And this one from “Know Your Enemy:”

The insurgency will rise,when the blood's been sacrificed.

Musically – and, obviously, lyrically and ideologically too -, it has a direct predecessor in the band's previous album, ¡Tré!, in “99 Revolutions”, a song about okupas, an anti-establishment movement that stood against land profit and the increasing amount of homeless people opposed to unused land and empty houses all around the world, but mostly in the US and Europe.




  • What have the artists said about the song?

    “Give me cherry bombs and gasoline!” Armstrong sings on the title track. The idea came to him in New York two years ago when he ran into a Black Lives Matter protest; before he knew it, Armstrong had gotten out of his car and was walking up Eighth Avenue with the throng. “I was screaming, ‘Hands up, don't shoot,' ” he says. “I felt like I was on the right side of history. … It's like something is breaking in the world. A lot of the old people are dying off and the values of the Fifties generation are starting to break and what happened in the Sixties and is starting to manifest more now than it ever has before.”
