Music makes it clear...

American Idiot is not really a new album, but we only just recently sat down and took some time to review the lyrics. Yeah, punk disguises some particularly deep thoughts with its raucous delivery.  Always has.  The title song in particular:

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.

That speaks to us, deeply, succinctly putting into a few words an agenda of resistance to both overwhelming testosterone charged repression and its partner in thought crime: the glorification of ignorance.

We're certainly not part of the redneck agenda. Rednecks have always bothered us, even before they bred their herd into numbers sufficient enough to smother thought and take control. What's with all that "redneck pride"?  It's kind of like being proud of having crapped your pants. Look everybody, no bowel control - bowel control is for faggots! You a faggot clean-shorts boy? I can't smell any shit on you!

Well maybe not as grammatically correct, but the spirit's dead on...
