This is simply a beautiful song. I don't care that it might be a bit over-played. Better Green Day than most of that pop crap that's making the rounds these days.
Worst Green Day Song
Yup, this is the WORST Green Day song ever written, its so slow and boring, the hook is terrible it sounds like he is going through puberty. Obvious pandering to the military. THIS IS COMMERCIALISM
By James Owl
just a blan, unimaginative release that has nothing to contribute except the catchy melodic chorus (that they stole from Electric Light Orchestra's "Telephone Line" to the T). not worth the 5 year wait, not even better than the incredibly annoying and repetitive "Know Your Enemy"
This song rocks
This song has good lyrics
By GD is god
For all of you who say this is not their best work or I'm a hard core GD fan but give a four star review, then your are obviously not a true hard core fan because a hard core fan will appreciate their music even if it isn't the same as dookie or insomniac, ok w/e it's still amazing music from an amazing band, so if you call your self a hard core fan but hate their new music, then you obviously are not and don't appreciate great music. Nuff said
The best is with the cast of American idiot!!!!! The original is good too!
Old Green Day is way better
By Say Your Prayers
Listen to their first 4 albums, 39 Smooth, Kerplunk, Dookie and Insomniac. Then listen to 21st Century Breakdown. Then you will say "What Happened".
But they need to get over the fact that it's not the best song they've ever released, and people won't like more if they release it ten million times. I'm sure that there will be a 21 Guns Single.
This song (the whole 21st century breakdown album) is different from usual green day songs. But thats okay because this song rocks! 9.8 / 10.
Mojo Buford: You Don't Understand! By Greendayrockband
It's not about what you think! It follows the story of Gloria and Christian-- a couple. They are in a divorce. That's why it says "Give up the fight". It you took the time to listen to 21st Century Breakdown, you would understand how 21 Guns goes along with the album. Albums like 21st Century Breakdown are called "concept albums", which tell a story. Anyway, it's not about the war and government. Hope this helps!
