Minority Lyrics - Green Day

Review The Song (12)



I want to be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I want to be the minority


I pledge allegiance to the underworld
One nation under dog
There of which I stand alone
A face in the crowd
Unsung, against the mold
Without a doubt
Singled out
The only way I know


'Cause I want to be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I want to be the minority

sponsored links
Stepped out of the line
Like a sheep runs from the herd
Marching out of time
To my own beat now
The only way I know

One light, one mind
Flashing in the dark
blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
For crying out loud she screamed out to me
a free for all
Fuck 'em all
you are your own sight

'Cause I want to be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I want to be the minority

One light, one mind
Flashing in the dark
blinded by the silence of a thousand broken hearts
For crying out loud she screamed out to me
a free for all
Fuck 'em all
You are your own sight

'Cause I want to be the minority
I don't need your authority
Down with the moral majority
'Cause I want to be the minority
(I wanna be...) the minority (x4)

Just so you know | Reviewer: GD RULES | 1/9/11

Moral Majority is refering to the group that was about conservatism and christianity. Basically, Billie Joe's enemy. So I'm guessing this song was written by the means of him being different then this big social movement runned by the Moral Majority and he is saying f them, I can be what I want and you can't tell me what I have to be.



meaning | Reviewer: william alexander | 1/4/11

This song is mocking standard rebel culture. green day is a punk group, but I think they were trying to mock the stereotypical "rebel without a cause" deal that their fan base was becoming. Nevertheless, a dank song.



good way to be | Reviewer: kaiju | 10/15/10

for a while all my life was trying to aviod conflict, which usually ment being what others wantd me to be. but since i've heard this song i realized not everyone is going to like me. they won't know me well enough to understand, and i'm okay with that. i've got friends who love me for me. now that i've realized that, i don't care what others think. i like me for me and that's wat matters.

bjaluvr4evr!



Explosive | Reviewer: Liam | 6/8/10

This song has so much power in ever lyric, drum solo and riff played. It's awesome, awesome, awesome!!

At their live concert Bullet in a Bible their performance of this want you to jump up and scream along with the chorus. Along with Hitchin' a Ride, Longview, Welcome to Paradise and Waiting, this is one of the best Green Day songs composed since their debut 21 years ago.

Bullet in a Bible | Reviewer: Alissa | 8/29/09

I love Green Day sooooo much. It was the first band I ever listened to. I took a lot of shit for it too. I really love the 'one light, one mind flashing in the dark' part. It sounds really REALLY familliar.

I think... | Reviewer: Rob | 2/8/09

I think most people miss the point of this song.
It is generally accepted that "Minority" means to be yourself, be different from society, rebel against authority etc...

What I believe it is really doing is mocking that sort of behavior. It is elaborating on how those idiot kids see the world. They want to be "unique" just for the sake of being a rebel to society and authority.

So to mock this sort of disillusionment, it perfectly captures the naive and shallow mentality of "rebels".



:) | Reviewer: Emily | 11/1/08

This is one of the songs I love most by Green Day. Whenever I hear the live version from Bullet In A Bible, it makes me wish I was at their concert and just fucking rocking out to this song. Hahaha

Love Billie Joe <3



MinORITY THE MAJORITY | Reviewer: Rubén | 10/11/07

Billie Joe is only a guy that wants express something, but he does throgh his own songs,
Whoever listen tghis song and pay attention in the lyrics is gonna be realized that it's a greta song°!!!
