Know Your Enemy - Single Tracklist:
I love Know Your Enemy and Hearts Colide. I'm pretty sure I would love lights out as well. Sadly, being the vynil fan that I am, I bought this in the form of a 45 rpm single, completely ignorant of the fact that they only included two of the songs from the three track EP. Bad iTunes! Bad! Stop having more to offer than vynil records! I can't live without them!
Know Your Enemy is not the best Green Day song ever written. What their best song is is debatable, but you won't find it here. What you will find is a couple of great songs that didn't make it onto 21st Century Breakdown, as well as a catchy but boring single.
Kevin1000- Good that you left. Green Day didn't need a hater like you bringing them down! >:( I admit it isn't my favorite song, and "Breakdown" certainly isn't my favorite GD album. But this is a great song, and deserves listening to! But if I had to pick a favorite song on the new album, I'd definetly pick East Jesus Nowhere! My fav GD song ever!!
Ok, I love 21 Guns, but seriously, it is getting way too popular for it's own good. Green Day also released 3 other singles. Know Your Enemy was the lead single (released April 16), East Jesus Nowhere was released as a single on October 19, and 21st Century Breakdown became a single on December 21
No Yor Enimee!! Ha Ha. This song is rockin' and just plain old AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do you know your Enemy? I do! Miley Cyrus is my enemy for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok. i already wrote a review for this song. so this is a review to defend them. to the w***e who thought it who be funny to call them "gay day"----stop being such a homophobe!!!! yes, billie joe armstrong is bisexual, but he is also a modern legend and the best songwriter since john lennon. and you are just a mindless loser who sits around on their computer all day writing nasty and hateful reviews about perfectly great music. so go save yourself and actually bother to listen to some of their stuff.
ok--i truely looooove green day--but know your enemy is kinda weak-it says the same thing over and over again...its a AWSOME SONG--just not theyre best--it is very catchy thoe--and fun to sing along with! my personal favorite is "Lights Out"--i know it is basically the same thing as "Know Your Enemy"--but it just gets stuck in my head--and its very catchy!--and its like channeling Nimrod and Dookie--which is so very awsome! but i would so buy this is if youre a long time fan of green day---if your new---listen to Dookie-Nimrod-and American Idiot--and a few older albums---THEN buy this once your a fan of theyre music!--it will do you the best-mmkay?
Green Day is proabalbly the most sick band ever. . . and i bought "lights out" the moment it came out at hot topic. Now here comes hearts collide which is hella yes. So here is the end of my review. if you keep reading this you will end up with no futher information. This sentance is completly pointless and so is the next one. I just wrote this so i can fill up the box and make it look like i gave an actuall effort.
Once again, Green Day sounds like, well, Green Day. For the last 20 years they have sounded EXACTLY the same. Here's an idea: Try something new. Maybe put a little spin on the ol' 3-piece pop punk outlet. Or, you could just sound like Dookie for the rest of your lives. Pun intended. Never was a big fan of Green Day and this is exactly why. Every time I've ever bought one of their albums, I've asked myself, "Now why did I just spend $11.99 on an album that I already had?" Not this time. I heard plenty of that same ol' Green Day sound from the 30 second previews so lovingly provided by iTunes. Thanks for saving me some cash there Jobs. Now maybe I'll go drop some dough on another pointless app for my iPhone. Or eat a cheeseburger. Either way, I won't be spending any money on ANYTHING Green Day.
The Bush Bashing was cute while he was in office, and Green Day made a phat stack of cash doing it. Its not cute anymore. They need to pick up the pieces of thier broken life and move on....
I liked this song better the first time...when Rage Against The Machine released it. So much for originality. I guess they were banking on today's youth being too young to remember. Do yourself a favor and buy R.A.T.M.'s self-titled album iinstead.
Green day is absolutely amazing. Don't listen to the ppl who say they sound like linkin park or tht they're too old. Billie Joe Armstrong is the most talented musician. His voice is beautiful and I can't wait to see them live on Tuesday night.
ive loved this band since the 5th grade, and recently saw them in concert where they played a solid 3 hours. These 3 songs, as well as the entire 21st century breakdown album, are nothing short of amazing! This band has shown their loyal fans time and time again that their music is here to stay, and they do not dissapoint! Thanks for another awesome album, guys!
Green Day continues to raise the bar in punk-rock/alternative music. "Lights Out" is a must have. The bass brings back memories of Green Day's album 'Dookie' and all in all the song is amazing. Do NOT believe those reviews that say Green Day has lost it. Green Day has come back with a hit album '21st Century Breakdown' and if you have not bought it you're missing out on one of their greatest albums yet.
HAHA! First review! No doubt this is one of the best songs on Green Day's new album. I know people think this is the weakest song on the album, but I bought this song as a single and this song helped me like the rest enough of the album to buy it when it came out. (And I am no poser, you can look at my review of 21st century breakdown and see that I like the album overall.) The song is well written, with great lines like "Silence it's the enemy, against the urgency, so rally up the demons of your soul." Now it is true that the song is repetitive, but is still catchy. As for the other songs, they are neat to listen to and I am surprised why they were not on the deluxe version of the album. I also reccomend buying the non-album tracks along with Know Your Enemy. A nice follow-up to American Idiot, Green Day! Let's hope that they release a new album soon. LONG LIVE GREEN DAY!
