Today’s song is called 21 Guns by the American punk rock band Green Day. The song was published on the album 21st Century Breakdown in 2009. Here are the lyrics, and below is the song:


I think the lyrics are deep, but I can’t really figure out what I think they mean, but they’re pretty cool all the same.  I especially like the build-up to the guitar solo “Did you try to live on your own?”, and of course the solo was good too. I actually really liked the music video to this one. It reflects the song nicely.


“When it’s time to live and let die, and you can’t get another try
Something inside you heart has died, you’re in ruins”
(21 Guns – Green Day)
