Morrissey - Bonfire of Teenagers




Morrissey debuted the title track of his upcoming album “Bonfire Of Teenagers,” a song the artist says is about the 2017 suicide bombing at the Manchester Arena on May 22, 2017, during a July 1 residency show in Las Vegas. The 2017 attack, following an Ariana Grande concert, resulted in 22 people dead and left hundreds injured.

“This song is new,” said Morrissey during his concert. “It’s about England’s 9/11. Obviously in jolly old England, most people won’t talk about it, but I will.”

Singing Bonfire of Teenagers which is so high in May north-west sky / Oh, you should’ve seen her leave for the arena / On the way, she turned and waved and smiled Goodbye, the lyrics then take a jab at the Oasis’ 1995 song “Don’t Look Back in Anger” with And the silly people sing ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger,’ / And the morons sing and sway ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’ / I can assure you I will look back in anger ’till the day I die.

“Bonfire of Teenagers” then goes on to describe the female fan vaporized and ends with a refrain of Go easy on the killer.
