Machine Gun (F--k The NRA)

Album: 21st Century Liability (2017)

  • Lyrics
  • This track about gun control was sparked by Yungblud's bafflement that in America it's easier for people to purchase an assault rifle than buy a beer. He told NME:

    "I'm not even American, but for the sake of humanity, something has got to change. People are going to say, 'Oh god, this song is really uncomfortable', and good, because you know what is uncomfortable? Being 16 years old and someone walking into your school with a f---ing shotgun or assault rifle. I want people to be at my show to bounce around, but also because we all see a better future."
