April 24, 2009. The Green Day have finally debuted a music video for their new single "Know Your Enemy", which will be listed in their new studio album "21st Century Breakdown". They are seen performing the song with fire burning on the background. Their performance is sometimes intercepted with a capture of basketball game.

Previously, the video's director Matthew Cullen of Motion Theory shared to MTV, "We shot in downtown Los Angeles - in a real urban center - and the video is Green Day performing. There isn't another single person in it." He added, "It's based very much on my interpretation of the lyrics, but it connects to the title of the song, and it plays to the environment of fear that we've created for ourselves."

Green Day have announced tour dates to support "21st Century Breakdown", which is slated for U.S. release on May 15. They will start touring on July 3 in Seattle, WA and finish it up with a live concert in Los Angeles, CA on August 25.

Green Day Know Your Enemy Lyrics:

Do you know the enemy?
Do you know your enemy?
Well, gotta know the enemy

Do you know the enemy?
Do you know your enemy?
Well, gotta know the enemy

Do you know the enemy?
Do you know your enemy?
Well, gotta know the enemy

Violence is an energy
Against the enemy
Violence is an energy

Bringing on the fury
The choir infantry
Revolt against the honor to obey

Overthrow the effigy
The vast majority
Burning down the foreman of control

Silence is the enemy
Against your urgency
So rally up the demons of your soul

Do you know the enemy?
Do you know your enemy?
Well, gotta know the enemy

Do you know the enemy?
Do you know your enemy?
Well, gotta know the enemy

The insurgency will rise
When the bloods been sacrificed
Don't be blinded by the lies
In your eyes

Violence is an energy
From here to eternity
Violence is an energy
Silence is the enemy
So gimme gimme revolution

Do you know the enemy?
Do you know your enemy?
Well, gotta know the enemy

Do you know the enemy?
Do you know your enemy?
Well, gotta know the enemy

Overthrow the effigy
The vast majority
Burning down the foreman of control

Silence is the enemy
Against your urgency
So rally up the demons of your soul

I dont own the song, all credit to greenday obviously... :)

    and 4) just plain stupid, again showing your true colors. it may help you to buy a dictionary and study up if your going to be talking smack to people on the internet that are far more intelligent than you. anyway i just want to say how happy i am to have talked to you, and i hope this helped you to think about things a little deeper. good bye and good luck in your future. :)

    3) both, well i dont think this should even earn a comment, it just shows the true you. please remember what i said before about thinking before you type. as far as the NEW WORLD ORDER its a conspiracy theory, it doesnt make it fact. a good conspiracy can not be proven, there for we may never know the truth. in my opinion i believe it is very possible.

    2) LIAR, well sir this is one thing that i have to say i try more than anything not to be. all tho everyone lies i have to say that you do not know me or know what you are talking about. as far as Bringers comment goes, im not saying that hes right im saying that i agreed with him 100%. its called an opinion and it doesnt have to be fact, the fact is its just what i believe.

  • Chemdog47

    now as far as your 1-4 goes all i have to say is wow. 1) i am a leg thank you. i wasnt aware that being airborne all of a sudden made you someone of great intelligences. now im not ripping on the airborne, as a matter of fact so of my best friends are airborne and i salute them. im ripping on you thinking that some how that makes you eligible for mensa. for your sake i hope you are joking.

    GDfan17 by the comments that have made you have proved a lot about yourself, the difference between us is class. im not going to sit here and make derogatory comments about you, you are proving my point for me. unlike you i can use my brain to debate an issue, so next time think before you type and remember to use your words. being an a$$ doesnt make you seem smart, the opposite actually.

    Being a soldier means absolutely nothing in this case? I've been a soldier for 4 years, that doesnt mean anything, and being a true punk fan? again, nothing to do with it? The fact that you belive in the New World Order doesnt really prove anything other than your:
    1. A leg
    2. A Liar
    3. Both
    4. Just plain stupid
