Macy's Day Parade by Green Day

Album: WarningReleased: 2000
  • This is Billie Joe Armstrong's commentary on commercialism, and how people want materialistic things all the time (Macy's is a big department store that sponsored a Thanksgiving day parade in the US). The song explains that he wants something, but it's not material, all he wants is to have hope in his life.
  • Armstrong: "It's sort of about the lies and deceptions that you have growing up and how you have to find your own way around." >>

by the way life's been good was a song by the eagles that was written by joe walsh and i'm suprised he even remember's he wrote it i mean he admitts he doesn't remember a lot from his past anyway. but i like this song i think it's music video was exilent and it is an all around good song.Blake - Redhook, Ny
So why is there a Green Day Basher comment on here again? ne way I think it's very melodic which is great. .One of the reasons why I love Green day's songs is becuz you can listen to them at ne given time whether it be to PARTY or to just relax and be easy going. ♥☺September Heaven - Lawton, Mi
I think Greenday put this song on warning just to show people that there not just punk rocker.

I think this song is about billie stated that he wants to take a break from the media and trying to find the price for true hope in his life.

it kind of sounds like he's talking about maturing and growing up to meErik - Willow Hill, Pa
This song sounds like dying children, I rather listen to 24 straight hours of Gregorian Chants.
You want a poetic song about the dangers of materialism, try Hotel California or Life in The Fast Lane or Life's Been Good

Part of it seems to criticise the way that the corporate world cash in on people's deaths "Its a lifetime guarantee, stuffed in a coffin 10% more free, the red light special at the mausoleum"Ben - London, England
This is one of my fave green day songsTanya - London, United States
