Kill the DJ (3:41)

Cover of ¡Uno!

From ¡Uno! and 3 other releases

The Kill the DJ Songfacts says: The second single from Green Day’s ¡Uno! album finds Billie Joe Armstrong proclaiming threateningly: “Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ.” Before you dial 911 and accuse the Californian trio of advocating the murder of record spinners, consider that the lyrics are not as they seem. “‘Kill the DJ’ is not about, you know, killing a DJ,” Armstrong laughed to MTV News. “It’s not literal. It’s more of a metaphor for information overload.” The song premiered on August 13, 2012 during Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show.

    Green Day is a perfect example of a band that started off so good...but should have left the seen before they turned into whatever crap you could possible call this. What happened to lead singers overdosing and the band disappearing.

    I came here expecting a hatefest, all prepared to (obnoxiously) voice a minority report, but now I'm a bit at a loss for what I'm supposed to say.
