"Warning" is a song by the American punk rock band Green Day. It is the second single and title track from their sixth album, Warning.

Billie Joe Armstrong has said that the original concept was to create a song whose lyrics were made up of all signs and labels, and the idea grew from there.

The song was a number three modern rock hit in the US and entered the Billboard Hot 100. The song also made it into the Top 40 of the UK Singles Chart in the UK.

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Warning" premiered on MTV in January 2001. It was directed by Francis Lawrence and shows the life of a young adult in his early twenties who does dangerous, socially unacceptable and trivial things during his day.
