Joywave - Like A Kennedy Lyrics

My head is swelling like a Kennedy
I won't be afraid, I won't be afraid
I'm spilling on my Jackie next to me
She hopes for the best, but I'm losing faith

Are they gonna bomb us all?
I don't know
Do you think they'll build the wall?
I don't know

My TV's talking to itself again
Do we shoot 'em all dead?
Or should we let 'em all in?
Reporter stops me in the street and says
They'd love to get a quote, it'll only take a sec

Are they gonna bomb us all?
I don't know
Do you think they'll build the wall?
I don't know
Do you think they'll take it all?
I don't know
I just want to be fat and old
And happy

Are they gonna bomb us all?
I don't know
Do you think they'll build the wall?
I don't know
Do you think they'll take it all?
I don't know
I just want to be fat and old
And happy

Joywave Like A Kennedy Comments
  1. Stinger Bee

    Found this band by accident during an episode of V Wars. Every one of their songs is good. So rare.

  2. Dormasheen

    When you came from Destruction because of Fortnite but you take time to look at their other songs and now you're a fan.

  3. Social Hues

    I’m not even a joywave fan but I’m a diehard fan of this song!!

  4. Eric Bourassa

    Subscribed because I saw your ad on my X-Men Comics. Wanted to show my support since you guys are supporting my fave comics and because the ads themselves are great

  5. Carmela Guzman

    It's almost November 22nd

    I was born almost 6 years after the Kennedy assassination. I remember going "trick or treating" in the mid-1970s and people would have a picture of JFK in their living rooms. Sometimes his photo was among family members photos that served in Korea or Vietnam. Between the Kennedy assassination and Nixon leaving in a scandal, my parents were very critical of politics and what the truth even really was. It's been 56 years since the Kennedy assassination and I don't feel like there will ever be an absolute truth about who did it and why it happened. As much as I dislike Trump he must have really pissed the wrong people off to get them to take the impeachment route this far.

  7. Bag Min

    Okay, i know I’m coming a bit late to this, but this camerawork is straight up amazing

  8. Donatas Mockus

    Where there's more guns, there's less gun violence, am I right guys... right?

  21. Tarif

    wht's wrong with him ? :/

  22. Lord Densel Michel

    That guitar solo on it's own is so iconic. Almost queen-esque

  23. Sterling Archer

    I've been a Joywave fan for a long time, and I've turned people onto the great music that Joywave makes. But this song/video are disrespectful and ill-conceived. Stay in your lane Joywave. Judging by this song, video, and the comment you left, I can tell that you are just virtue signalling to tell everyone: "Hey, we hate gun violence too!" Sorry, but this makes you guys seem like lame tools.


    I wonder if you'd call it virtue signaling if you agreed with them? Nope!

    Sterling Archer

    @fl0nk11A person can have an opinion without needing to virtue signal and grandstand. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but not everyone acts self-righteous about it. Virtue signalling is fake and obvious. People who do it are lame. I don't take the side of lame people or their even lamer opinions. Joywave makes good music, but they need to stick to what they do best, and stay away from political/social issues in their music. It only alienates fans, and the arguments surrounding the legality of firearms are so complex, and way beyond the scope of Joywave's music.


    @Sterling Archer As I said...

    Sterling Archer

    @fl0nk11 Did you even read what I said? It's not the opinion itself that I have a problem with, it's the lame and obvious virtue signalling. If my best friend was virtue signalling I would still call him out, and tell him he's being lame. It has nothing to do with opinions. It's how one presents them.

  24. Lumine Kisaragi

    Everywhere we go we still hear people talk about the same hypocrisy about changing for the better, but really we don't do anything to help so it becomes nothing but lip service. I am in that same category I just seem to procrastinate a lot and never help for the better, so I shouldn't really call out all the hypocrisy but I'm just putting this out there that we need to change.

  25. Space Kek

    too soon

  26. nazareth barker

    Its about all the typical american bs, political arguments over immigration, the whole ww3 scare, building the wall in mexico, all the way to salesmen stoping him on the street asking him for a free quote. He doesnt care he just wants to be fat, old and happy

  27. Quinc

    this honestly deserves millions of views

  28. Charlie Martin

    shoutout to the focus puller on this shoot

  29. Brian Solly

    holy shit what is this soy boy alpha male shit?

  30. mostlikelycaleb

    man, this really sucks "are they gonna build the walllllllll" like are u kidding me dude? it would have been doper if you got shot but kept reanimating rather than replaced, instead it's just some fucking "durrr the government is 1984 durrr" - it's inhumane to not have a wall fuckface, everyone thinks they know everything without knowing anything about what they're talking about, only how they feel about it based on propaganda. what a waste of creative energy.

    Zakary Foley

    Nice bait

  31. Matt Yoss

  36. Alan Vázquez

    JoJo Michel Du 59

    You wanna sound like you're unique because you're 13 and you understand political messages and you don't listen to rap ?
    I'm 13 too, and I don't brag about how different I am from the other 13 year olds.

    If you gotta make your video an ad so people can watch it you automatically suck. And for the people who like it clean the shit outta your ears. Your fuckin deaf. Pretty lame. Grow some balls. Go shoot a gun. Kill someone. I mean fuck do something. Kennedy got half his head blown slightly off. This music video wasn't even close to it. The music is for very lame cunts too. The fucks a matter with people. Where are your balls. You got no guts listening to this shitty fagget sad drama music. Fuckin idiots.


    Dominic Vega
    Lol you’re telling other people to grow balls yet here you are getting upset and angry over a fucking song. You’re an embarrassment

    JoJo Michel Du 59

  63. Osama-bin Ladder


  64. Kain Bell

    Y’all are makin some soundtrack jams. ❤️

  65. Lance Mungia

    I’ve been waiting for this without realizing it. I instantly love these artists. I have been asking myself where are all the great artists that in previous times of national debate made real commentary and could take the temperature of an era? Where is our Bob Dylan? Our Neil Young?

    In Iraq and Afghanistan, where we have now been at war for nearly an entire generation and the newest veterans of conflict will soon to be not yet born at the time of 9/11, vets of those conflicts I have met told me they often listened to 60’s and 70’s music whilst deployed as it spoke to them and what they were feeling more directly than the mindless corporatized lyrics of today which, albeit full of sound and fury, too often signify nothing.

    I just stumbled across this video, I found the spirit of it both a little disturbing and uniquely appropriate to the times we find ourselves in need of rising to. Thanks to Joywave and to their distributor for finally producing some damn art for a change.

    Fuck like a Kennedy. Honestly I'd rather be burning your information. Na na na na na na na na na na.
    - Gerard Way

  69. Snow white

    Dont know If anyone has figured it out but here you go

    It's showing you how the "system" works- Kennedy was shot and the government comes in and cleans up the "mess" and the people in the car (which is representing the public) doesn't pay attention or even notice. They are then showing you that the same thing happens over and over yet nobody notices. Then the agent in the front stands up and plays the guitar showing you that he was part of the song or plan the entire time. Then in the end everyone dies to cover up what happened yet the vehicle (the group behind the plot) keeps driving on.

    Snow white

    @Dominic Vega Your brain sounds like it’s just as big as your cute.


    @Dominic Vega Rude much

  74. ProjectLifeCommand

    BUILD THE WALL!!! The border wall was never completed and it needs to be completed to keep out the drug cartels that keep bringing in drugs. They also smuggle people over, so think about that. Why would people be trying to come to America illegally, undetected? Many children being smuggled over the border are for sex trafficking by gangs.

    On Friday, July 26th, the Supreme Court decided to allow president Trump to transfer $2.5 billion of Defense Department funds to defend the southern border by building hundreds of miles of wall to replace existing fencing.

    Citizens from anywhere in the world can also help by going to WeBuildTheWall (dot) Us

  76. rifire1

    Should have had the driver stop, turn and shoot him like the original

  77. Offbrand

    Do you think when he says “I just want to be fat and old and happy.” It means that he died to early and couldn’t experience that luxury?

  78. Lewd Mobster

    I guess the new question about the wall is do you think they will finish it

    Bill Jones

    Lewd Mobster not 1 inch is the “promised” wall..........America has been scammed by the world’s best known con man.......

  89. radioakt

    things like this are exactly why liberal politics have lost all trust in the broader public. they can't recognize the crass vanity of their messaging over the seduction of stroking their own egos. vile hubris at its utmost.

  90. radioakt

    this is totally tasteless. guitar soloing over a pantomime of an actual historical event where a woman's husband had his brains blown out next to her beyond cheap shock. what a flimsy and disgusting way to drum up clicks.
