Tablature Legend:
/ =slide
^ =bend
X =mute with hand


(Guitar 2 (Jason White) is optional.Live Jason plays the solo,I said 
Guitar 1(Billie Joe) plays the solo so if he/she is playing by themselves
they wouldnt get confused.To hear this song(live) besides going to one of 
their concerts is to watch Sessions @ AOL airing on fuse or YAHOO! Launch.
You can also play the CD version with this tab,just dont play the interludes
& two chorus' after it..I've been to a couple of Green Day shows 
& this looks like what they play.You could use the CD to get the rythm for 
this song.For all the riffs use downstrokes & upstrokes.I went to a Green 
Day concert and noticed after the interlude he plays more chorus' then I 
put.They play more chorus' because BJ talks to the crowd.This is what they 
play when they don't talk.I even wrote where Mike sings along.When playing
the verse' I labeled where to sing when playing what chord.This tab is 
off of YAHOO! Launch.The first riff with the "X's" is optional.Billie Joe
does not use pedals.Jason does not use pedals.)

(0:21-0:23)    And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
(0:26-0:28)    The subliminal mindfuck america.

(0:31-0:49)    Welcome to a new kind of tension. 
               All across the alienation.
               Everything isn't meant to be okay.
               Television dreams of tomorrow.
               We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
               For thats enough to argue.

(0:57-0:59)    Well maybe I'm the faggot america.
(1:02-1:04)    I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
(1:07-1:09)    Now everybody do the propaganda.
(1:12-1:14)    And sing along in the age of paranoia.

(1:18-1:35)    Welcome to a new kind of tension.
               All across the alienation.
