Green Day Revolution Radio lyrics

Revolution Radio song lyrics by Green Day 

Revolution Radio is the song from the album of the same name by Green Day..


The inspiration of the song and meaning of it came to Billie Joe Armstrong when he was driving into Manhattan when he came across a large group of protesters.

They were outraged by a Missouri grand jury’s decision not to indict a police officer for the killing of young black man Michael Brown so they filled the streets and backed up traffic for miles.

Armstrong was inspired this protest action.

 "I got out of my car and marched with the people," he says. "It was a trip to see people rebel against the old order."

And that kind of sentiment is classic Green Day so he tapped into it for the song. 

Revolution Radio song lyrics

[Verse 1]
Stay 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
In the headline, my love's bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Carry guitars and treachery
In the headline, we call lies the truth

[Verse 2]
Give me rage like there's tear gas in the crowd
Do you want 'em allowed, but the air is barely breathing
Lies, all the slums to the obsolete
The dawn of the new airwaves for the anti-social media

[Chorus]
We are, revolution radio
Operation no control
In the headline, my love's bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Carry guitars and treachery
In the headline, we call lies the truth

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

[Chorus]
We are, revolution radio
Operation no control
In the headline, my love's bullet proof
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
Carry guitars and treachery
In the headline, we call lies the truth
