|Dookie album timeline|
"FOD" is a song of the album Dookie , American band of punk rock , Green Day , appearing as the last "official" track, because after a pause of about 2 minutes begins the hidden track All By Myself . It was not released as a single, however, it was heavily played during Dookie's promotional tour and being part of later set lists. The title of the song are acronyms, which mean "Fuck Off and Die" (Go to hell and die).
The song talks about a horrible feeling that we all must experience at some point in life, this being dealing with a person that is unbearable for one. This happens with a person who could be a boss, coworker, colleague or even the same parent, where you have to live with that person every day, talk to him and pretend that everything is fine, while in the mind you are enjoying the cut off his head. From time to time you have fights with that person, "setting fire to the bridge" that connects them, but in the end you would have to see the other every day, so you should keep those fires apart, but the hatred and irritation continues burning in the entrails, and one day he only vomits everything telling the other to be the disgust of how much he really is despised,
Musically the song consists of 2 parts, the quiet one (only the acoustic guitar and the voice sound) and the strong one (where all the instruments come in). This basically demonstrates the 2 stages of this hateful relationship, first you deal with that person and keep suppressing your anger, and then spit it all out. This rage is so destructive to dignity that when it really breaks out, you are almost proud to tell the truth, and the more insulting it is, the better it feels. [ 1 ]
