I get up I get down
And I’m jumping around
And the rumpus and ruckus are comfortable now
Been a hell of a ride
But I’m thinking it’s time to grow
So I got an apartment
Across from the park
Put quinoa in my fridge
Still I’m not feeling grown
Been a hell of a ride
But I’m thinking it’s time to go
(Here we go)
So put your best face on everybody
Pretend you know this song everybody
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
I’m way too young to lie here forever
I’m way too old to try so whatever
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
Feel like I’m gonna puke
Cause my taxes are due
Do my password begin with a one or a two?
Been a hell of a ride
But I’m thinking it’s time to grow
Man I'm up to something
Thank you all for coming
I hope you like the show
Cause it’s on a budget
So oo-dee-la-dee-doe
Yeah come on here we go
Yeah come on
(Here we go)
So put your best face on everybody
Pretend you know this song everybody
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
I’m way too young to lie here forever
I’m way too old to try so whatever
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
Been a hell of a ride
But I’m thinking it’s time to go
So put your best face on everybody
Pretend you know this song everybody
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang
I’m way too young to lie here forever
I’m way too old to try so whatever
Come hang
Let’s go out with a bang

Hi, welcome to my messy analysis (I’ve just had so much fun with this music video!) Thanks for stopping by, if you’re too lazy to read through the whole thing (I don’t blame you) please at least check the end, I try to summaries my main idea there.
I also have no clue whether or not these are at all accurate, it’s just how I read the song and video. If I’m completely wrong, sorry AJR

*Simple Scene Contemplation*
At first, the surrounding people are very interested in the chips, the money.
1:27 Then they suddenly back away, shocked or scared. This is while in uniform, perhaps meaning, by being “in the system” they realise that they don’t actually want any part in it.
1:33 Then they’ve got that trumpets (could this have something to do with honouring? A sense of duty Or splendour while still removed? Playing along?)
1:53 Then, using the umbrellas, they hide from the chips and the money. This scene, while of course the raining is the main idea (I’m not quite sure the meaning behind the rain, but it) also hold similarities to a funeral scene (with monochrome people under umbrellas looking down at a rectangle/coffin) Perhaps an acceptance or saying goodbye to ones innocence?
1:58 Then, they’re suddenly blind to it. Perhaps deciding to just ignore the corruption? suddenly AJR are interested in the chips, while previously they were basically the masters, in control. (Again, not quite sure of the meaning behind this)

*The Metronome*
1:20 I believe there’s much importance behind the “metronome”. Of course, Jack’s actions here are meant to imitate the movement of a metronome. However, it also has the feel of a hypnosis trick, with ones eye following the movement of a watch etc. This could show the start or end of an “illusion”, especially since, right after this, the surrounding folk are no longer interested in the chips on the table.
The metronome could also (perhaps) be talking about a sense of consistency (since metronomes are used to make sure you keep on beat). This could either be about the predictability of popular music, but perhaps more so about trying to be consistent while growing up? Stay “on time” while your life is changing. (I’m not too sure about this point)

*I’m Way Too Young To Lie*
(1:44 I also feel it important to point out the pun in “I’m way too young to “lie” here forever”. Which, could be talking not only about not wanting to “die” and be forgotten etc. But can also mean that being young, they’re not willing to lie. Or perhaps that young people are expecting to keep the lies of those before them?)

*Main Themes?*
I’m not entirely sure, it just seems that there are two big storylines throughout this song.
One: is about growing up, reaching ones peak but accepting it and deciding to “go out with a bang” in stead of miserably. This is followed through the lyrics.
Two: Visually, the people around seem to be indicating some message about society and greed and lies. How, when children everything is fine, and then as one gets older they realise what the world is “really” like and have to go through the whole choice of deciding how to deal with reality. In the end they seem to choose to simply ignore it (as shown by the blind folds in the end) and become a normal member of society “as shown by the slightly more mature clothes, most visible with the pink haired girl’s hair turning red)

I connect this song with something completely different than what is generally about. Before my ex stopped talking to me, we went and saw Neotheater live together at the concert, which was such an amazing night. Even so, I kind of knew that it could be the last memory that we could happily share with each other, “going out with a bang” so to speak. It was only a couple of weeks after that that she stopped talking to me, which I suppose I can’t control. I kind of hope that they will make a different version of the song that sounds a bit more slow and more acoustic. It can have a good and bad connotation depending on how I look at things.

Can we just acknowledge that, somehow, that ridiculous hat works with that outfit oddly well? It's a hell of a style
