Green Day just released their new album, Revolution Radio, last week. It’s an excellent record that combines their 21st century political awareness with their earlier straightforward punch. Songs like “Bang Bang” and “Revolution Radio” are energetic and raise important social questions, but the album actually ends on a more reflective note. “Ordinary World” is an acoustic guitar driven ballad that singer Billie Joe Armstrong actually wrote for his new film of the same name.
Today “Ordinary World” gets a fittingly simplistic lyric video. The words are the real focus, with only simple pictures of Billie appearing after each chorus. Even though we may wish for bright lights and excitement, Billie reminds us that “what we have is more than enough.” It’s a poignant song and a perfect close to Revolution Radio. Check out the lyric video below:
Billie Joe originally wrote “Ordinary World” for his new film. It’s his first starring role, and based on his acting skill, it shouldn’t be his last.
Ordinary World depicts a punk rocker turned family man who, on his 40th birthday, wants to reclaim his past. It’s a funny and impactful film and you won’t want to miss it. Watch the trailer and be sure to see the whole film when it comes out October 14th.
