First off, 90's music rocks.
Secondly, for some reason LJ cuts aren't really working for me lately. Fuck you, LJ cuts.
Thirdly- I'm not a part of a redneck agenda

Don't want to be an American idiot.
Don't want a nation that under the new media.
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mindfuck America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
Well that's enough to argue.

Well maybe I'm the faggot America.
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda.
And sing along in the age of paranoia.

Welcome to a new kind of tension.
All across the alien nation.
Everything isn't meant to be okay.
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
Well that's enough to argue.

Don't want to be an American idiot.
One nation controlled by the media.
Information age of hysteria.
It's going out to idiot America.

I think that this is a huge statement against the machine.
The lyrics express that they're sick of being in a nation that just is stupid and does nothing for them. The media controls our lives, and celebrities. Middle America idiots are the ones who seem to be focused on. I mean, our president is a stupid hick from Texas.

I've had the same thought of Johnny Depp does, that "america is a dumb puppy". But, I kept it to myself. But, fuck it. Start the uproar. We are american idiots.

If you think America is so bad and you consider yourself to be intelligent, why don't you leave to find some place which is currently better?

Seeing that I am 15, I don't believe that is possible at this time.

Buying a bus ticket for less than $100 will get you to Mexico or Canada.

I'm sort of under the theory that countries undergo the same developmental stages as people. America fits into the 'teen' stereotype. (No offense, by any means). But you know...all the things listed in the psych books- invincibility, still in the 'things are black and white' stage, superiority complex...

I just wonder how many more hundreds of years before we grow out of it :-/
