The Lyrics

Okay, I know everyone is fed up with this song. I just had to vent about it...
Turn on the radio
Hear this darn song ten million more times
Gonna go downtown
Scold the station with my picket signs

I once liked Green Day
Till this song became so overplayed
If I hear it again
I believe I'll have to kill someone

I'll kill someone, I'll kill someone
From MTV for this crap

My anger at this song is overwhelming
It's worse than telemarketers at dinner
I smashed my radio the other morning
Because it played this song

Once upon a time
Green Day came out with a new single
People loved it so much
That they want to always hear it

I guess it's possible
This song has some mental influence
And has brainwashed us
Into needing to hear it all the time

All of the time this song is played
From radio to TV

My anger at this song is overwhelming
It's worse than Pittsburgh traffic on a game day
I'd rather get run over by a dump truck
Than hear this song again

I'd rather have some teeth pulled

Turn on the radio
Hear this darn song ten million more times
Gonna go downtown
Scold the station with my picket signs

I'd rather have my ears ripped off than hear this
Making this parody is almost fatal
I wish the guy who wrote this song would just die
His fate is surely sealed

Oh, I'm flattered. Let me guess: You're eleven years old and have only heard this song and "American Idiot." Cheers, darling.

hey, know this is a few months late, but just wanted to say this is a cool parody and really captures the over-played-ness of certain songs. love green day, even love this song, but couldn't stand it for a few months for this exact reason. tho it's brilliant live :-)

i understand it was overplayed, but your parody sucked like the vacume on scary move 1, it wasn't funny, and it wasn't well paced, over all, i would give you a zero on everything because it wasn't original, and it wasn't funny...

I like this song though I agree it is overplayed. But your pacing didn't do it for me. 243.

Hmm...well, I don't agree with LadyGaladriel, that's for sure. I'm eleven, AND I'VE HEARD EVERY DAMN GREEN DAY SONG.[/vent] I do, however, agree with you. It's far too over-played. BUT, it's a good song, and that's why it's my favorite. It's also almost never played on my local station; it's usually 'Holiday' or the absolutely HORRIBLE cut-version of 'Jesus of Suburbia'. But, I know people who agree with you are glad someone spoke up, but... Please don't say Billie should drop dead; he's a damn good poet. ~Derakii
