Green Day: Know Your Enemy

“Know Your Enemy” is a song by the American punk rock band Green Day. It was released as the first single from their eighth album 21st Century Breakdown, through Reprise Records on April 16, 2009. Billboard described the song as being lyrically “just as politically charged as last time (on American Idiot)”, having a “Modern Rock radio-ready chorus”, whilst the song’s producer Butch Vig “brings enough punk sheen for mass appeal.” It was the first, and one of only three songs, to top the Rock Songs, Alternative Songs and Mainstream Rock Tracks Billboard charts at the same time. Know Your Enemy has been certified Gold by the RIAA and has sold 798,000 copies as of August 2010. Wikipedia®

“Know Your Enemy” LYRICS
Do you know the enemy.
Do you know your enemy.
Well gotta’ know the enemy, ohaooh!

Do you know the enemy.
Do you know your enemy.
Well gotta’ know the enemy, ohaooh!

Do you know the enemy.
Do you know your enemy.
Well gotta’ know the enemy, ohaooh!

Violence is an energy.
Against the enemy.
Well violence is an energy, right.

Bringing on the fury.
The choir infantry.
Revolt against the honor to obey (Ohaooh).

Overthrow the effigy.
The vast majority.
We’re burning down the foreman of control (Ohaooh)

Silence is the enemy.
Against your urgency.
so rally up the demons of your soul (Ohaooh).

Do you know the enemy.
Do you know your enemy.
well gotta know the enemy, ohaooh.

Do you know the enemy.
Do you know your enemy.
well gotta know the enemy, ohaooh.

Insurgency will rise,
When the blood’s been sacrificed.
Don’t be blinded by the lies in your eyes.

Say!

Ohaooh..
Ohaooh…

Well, violence is an energy, ohaooh.
From here to Eternity.
Well, violence is an energy, ohaooh.
Silence is the enemy.

So give me, give me revolution!

Do you know the enemy
Do you know your enemy
Well gotta’ know the enemy, ohaooh!

Do you know the enemy.
Do you know your enemy.
Well gotta’ know the enemy, ohaooh!

Do you know the enemy.
Do you know your enemy.
Well gotta’ know the enemy, ohaooh!

Overthrow the effigy.
The vast majority.
We’re burning down the foreman of control

Silence is the enemy.
Against your urgency.
so rally up the demons of your soul (Ohaooh)..
