u people don't know crap!!! | Reviewer: Ink Raven | 5/6/10
None of you know Green Day as much as I do. I have literally been listening to them my whole life. first song i remember by them i heard when i was, like, 2 or 3, is Good Riddance (Time of Your Life). I know history of Green Day. the rest of you are all just wannabes who hopped the border to punk-rock when 21st Century Breakdown came out. So many kids at my school were like, "Oh, Green Day is so gay! They're the worst!" Once the album came out, there were a hell of a lot more kids wearin' t-shirts for them! And that just pisses me off. You guys don't know crap! if there are any true fans out there, then accept my greetings. and also, R U "Burnin' up, and out and growin' bored?"
Okay | Reviewer: JEJEE | 2/12/10
I think this is a good song, a strong riff, but keeping it simple.
The message of this song is to start think about stuff, not finding your enemy. This is like the main message of this album, and the answer comes in Restless Heart Syndrome, which is track 13 on the album.
Seriously, people who think this song sucks because "their is no enemy" wake up. It's just music.
To Mr. UK | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/15/09
Well it seems to me that you completely misunderstood my last post Mr. UK so let me explain. I never used the word liberal, so no need to make that inference, and by normal Christian righty I meant that I am a NORMAL christian not a fundamentalist tard. I never said that christianity makes you normal but you probably couldn't see that cuz ur head was shoved too far up ur arse. I may not be a majority in the rest of the world which is why the rest of the world has such major issues, cuz they fail to use logic just as urself sonny chap. Maybe you will remember ur own prime minister who came before chruchill, I wouldn't cuz the man was a cunt, who tried to appease Hitler and recieved a nice big Nazi boot up his ass in return. Thats why we had to bail u guys out from the germans.....TWICE. Oh and studying American politics at an A-level, my word how fascinating of u, well maybe u of all people would know that every class has a bias especially in a backwards socialist country like yours. Maybe thats why with ur magical universal healthcare people are flocking to the united states while we still have normal healthcare to get treated. U should probably read up on the Great Society programs that we have that give healthcare to all people regardless of income, it just pays better if u have more money, hmmm an incentive to work how awful!!! Oh and Russia may not be as socialist as they used to be but they certainly are reverting back to it under the grand messiah Putin. Maybe it is u who should read a book after u take a trip to ur local universal healthcare hospital and get ur head firmly removed from ur ass.

That's exactly what we don't understand here in Europe. That the Christian Right are so afraid of their mirror image. We see many of the citizens of the USA looking for principles of a leader which match Usamah bin Ladan. I'm doing American Politics at A-level and looking at it all it's a brilliant political system for something built from scratch, but the history and the way the American people are astounds me negatively. I mean not that you care, so it seems. But apparently, according to my lecturer, you like asking what people think of your country: Nothing special about your land and I will not set foot on it until it has cleaned up its act. Oh, and Liberal is considered an insult over there? Well, call us in Europe that all you like and we'll thank you because well, it's more of an honour to where that badge. You're backward. A country who won't accept National Healthcare. Stop calling Russia socialist, it isn't anymore, it's capitalist as much as you lot.
Green Day and positively outspoken and I like them for it. They seem to confirm suspicions. Mr Republican you can be as proud as you like - in the USA you may be in a majority but across the world not so, even our conservatives think you're right pillocks. You think you're normal by being a christian right member? Again, only in America, you irrational lot.
Damn..... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/30/09
Haha thanks CPK you just brightened up my day with your lefty BS trying to make yourself seem above everyone else. I'll have to tell my "Voilence" loving Republican friends about this. And just so that you know, for future reference, we love violence against incredibly violent people such as the religious zealots of the middle east. The funny thing is that you lefty pussies stick up for some of the most brutal people who inhabit this earth: you can be killed over there for not being Muslim, women can't reveal any parts of their bodies, and homosexuals are beaten without remorse (all of these go against your strictly Progressive agendas). So the next time you try to accuse us normal christian righties of being religious zealots you need look no further than your terrorist buddies across the sea..... Oh and by the way, the vast majority of the country supports the war against Terrorism but they don't talk about it because they're afraid of being called: homophobic, xenophobic, war-mongering, racist and all of the other words that you lefties WAY-overuse....they also hate Obama and all of his blatant fucking lies.
P.S. Obama escalated troop levels in Afghanistan so maybe you guys should actually LISTEN to Green Day and stop buying the media bullshit, I'm a violence loving republican and even I agree with them on that one.
Wow... | Reviewer: CPK | 7/12/09
I love reading the claims that this song is a dig at the left. Hey, news flash, they supported Obama. But whatever, it isn't like this is the first time the right screwed up( Patriot Act, NCLB). So, all you "voilence loving republicans", please stop making fools of yourselves and realize the majority of the country hates what you're saying. This isn't a jab at Obama or an attempt to provoke idoits, not unlike yourselves, to attack the government. What the song says is to understand the problems that you face and correct them how you feel. We must remember people that this is first and foremost a punk band. Most punk bands talk about voilence as their medium, has anyone heard of bands like the Sex Pistols, Crass, or the Dead Boys.
Get a grip you "sold out" comment idiots | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/8/09
Whats with you people sayin that green day sold out. If you talent that you love to do why not get paid for it. They dont have a boring 9-5 job that they have to trudge to each day they get to rock out and have a blast, and heaven forbid get paid for it.
Bravo! | Reviewer: Matt | 7/1/09
Great song. Great energy. Green Day makes great music, regardless of people calling them "fake" or "sellouts". Oh, and maybe they dont write songs about smoking pot and want to be taken seriously because they GREW UP! You should try it sometime..
Psh. ha. | Reviewer: Kurt Ambrose | 6/25/09
I love how you're all trying to be smart by throwing your analysis BS at this song and pretending to be socially aware.
Face the facts. Green Day is everything "punk" and "anarchy" stood against: the corporate market. Big business. They're dogs of the RIAA just like most everyone else. Green Day sells records because of posers who do nothing but consume, consume, consume because they want to be part of the scene.
I love how Green Day spent the greater part of their career singing about being stoned, then suddenly they want to be taken seriously.
Why didi this song have to be so good?! | Reviewer: the enemy | 6/23/09
I used to be a hippy. I used to like the idea of peace. I used to settle matters non violently. I used to like it that way . . .until I heard Know your Enemy. Imspiration, ideology and a big chunk of comon sense in one blow. Bravo Greenday. Go and show Greenpeace(boooooooo!) who's the boss!
