If you guys would actually READ the lyrics besides listening... Y O U would actually understand that this is talking about America being an idiot so why would it be our anthem where our one right now is talking ABOUT THE BEGINNING OF OUR COUNTRY?!?!? ! ?
So before you comment, read in between the lines and understand the song

Why does everyone being politics up at every possible time. Stop please, yeah I know this song is about America's government but just stop. Both candidates are complete dumb asses. At least Trump didn't keep hold of government secrets, cause countless American deaths, f**k up in Benghazi ,and then lie out his a** when the FBI has proof proving Hillary Clinton was guilty of holding government secrets and allowing them to be hacked.

I like this album but this is probably my least favorite song off it . Jesus of Suburbia is probably my favorite. This is 2000's Alternative. I was a junior in HS when this came out doesn't seem that long ago...

I LOVE this song a lot but I think 5 Seconds of Summer's version is just an itty bitty little bit better. (Nothing against Green Day- I love them and can't wait for the new album, but I love 5SOS a little more)
