The Static Age!

by mkleit

This is one of the few songs that actually carries meaning. It does not talk about love, hate, happy life of consumerism, and it certainly does not describe how “fine” the girl is and how good life is being rich and famous.

“The Static Age” is a song by the Punk-Rock band, Green Day, that simply talks about the era we’re living in, a consumerist age where everything we see on TV or hear on the radio is true, billboards are our source of information on “true” needs, religion is only exposed as a bad state of hallucination, and global useless brands will save you from the “misery of life” and teaches you to be happy…

Consume and obey to be fly and high; buy and spend to be happy and glad; machines occupy our happiness, until we have become their machines.

Wake up people, it’s time we wake up!

Lyrics from metrolyrics:

“Can you hear the sound of the static noise
Blasting out in stereo?
Cater to the class and the paranoid
Music to my nervous system

Advertising love and religion
Murder on the airwaves
Slogans on the brink of corruption
Visions of blasphemy, war and peace
Screaming at you

I can’t see a thing in the video
I can’t hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

Billboard on the rise in the dawn’s landscape
Working your insanity
Tragic a’la madness and concrete
Coca Cola execution

Conscience on a cross and
Your heart’s in a vice
Squeezing out your state of mind
Are what you own that you cannot buy?
What a fucking tragedy, strategy
Screaming at you

I can’t see a thing in the video
I can’t hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

I can’t see a thing in the video
I can’t hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

Hey hey it’s the static age
Well this is how the west was won
Hey hey it’s the static age millennium

All I want to know
Is a God-damned thing
Not what’s in the medicine
All I want to do is
I want to breathe
Batteries are not included

What’s the latest way that a man can die
Screaming hallelujah?
Singing out “The dawn’s early light”
The silence of the rotten, forgotten
Screaming at you

I can’t see a thing in the video
I can’t hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

I can’t see a thing in the video
I can’t hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age

I can’t see a thing in the video
I can’t hear a sound on the radio
In stereo in the static age
The static age”
