These days when most bands aren't saying much, Green Day manages to convey an entire message in a song. After 20 years of singing Billy Joe still sounds exceptional on his newest track "21 Guns." The song is a departure of sorts for the group that has made fast-moving alternative tracks a mainstay. Instead it's a somewhat tragic and somber tune. But it still includes their signature beat and Billy Joe's voice always comes through loud and clear. I enjoy it very much and feel that it's one of Green Day's most original and reflective singles to date.

"21 Guns" is the anthemic recent single of the punk rock/pop group Green Day. As a protest song, it's catchy and verges on folk rock. It has an acoustic quality (yet somehow made it into the bombastic Transformers movie) The lyrics are,for a pop song,quite good. "21 Guns" has real firepower to it. Though this song is about peace, it packs lead. To quote singer Michael Franti, power to the peaceful.

This is one of the top three, in my opinion, Green Day songs of the 21St century, no pun intended. A lot of people I know don't like it's melodramatic
nature, but the heavy chords halfway through break up that feeling, so it isn't constant. Billie Joe's vocals are the best as ever on this song, all without a single growl or "yeah". My favorite section comes about three minutes our so in, with the "like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone": great vocals whatever the lyric means. It shows a beautiful step away from their punk side while not being predictable or boring. Something I liked.

I am a huge Green Day fan and I am always excited to hear new stuff from them, though this is not necessarily new. I recently purchased this as an MP3 download and can't get enough of it. The overall feel of it reminds me of some of their anthems from the American Idiot playlist, and brings with it a power punch full of music that seems purposeful. This song's lyrics speaks directly to me and is so coherently meaningful I can't help but feel the emotional fortitude behind it.

I remember the first time I heard Dookie. At the time these guys were way up on their game... they still are and this is one of the most melodic punk rock tunes out there...

I love the artist and the whole tone and mood of the song, a definite buy that will remain popular even when the song is considered to be vintage.

Green Day is not my normal go-to music, but this song is beautiful. It has a great message to it as well.
