  • Walkin' after dark
    In the New York City park
    Your thoughts are so unholy
    In the holiness of old
    On with Christian soldiers
    Filled with jivin' mind control

    The blood left on the dance floor
    Runnin', runnin' red
    The bullet that you asked for
    Killin' you to death
    Unless you

    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Voices in my head are sayin'
    "Shoot that fucker down"

    We are the vultures
    The dirtiest kind
    We'll cut you once
    In your heart and your mind

    Walkin' after dark
    In the New York City park
    I'll pick up what's left in the club
    My pocket full of pills
    Sodom and Gomorrah
    In the century of thrills
    The blood left on the dance floor
    Runnin', runnin' red
    The bullet that you asked for
    Killin' you to death
    Unless you

    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Hold him underwater
    'Till the motherfucker drowns

    We are the vultures
    The dirtiest kind
    We'll cut you once
    In your heart and your mind
    Someone's gonna get you boy
    Shoot that fucker down

    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Shoot that fucker down

    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Someone kill the DJ, shoot the fucking DJ
    Voices in my head are sayin'

  • Ben from LondonKill the DJ is a great poppy mixup for Green Day. I'd heard of this song called Kill the DJ forever and I'm always like "i'm not a sociopath, my brother is a DJ".
    Spoilers: I love it. NOT WHAT I EXPECTED.
