a swift, sudden military offensive, usually by combined air and mobile land forces (German word for “lightning war”)

Artist: Ramones
Song: Blitzkrieg Bop
Album: Ramones

5 cent synonyms:
attack, raid, bombardment

Interpretation of this 25 cent word in the song:
Teenagers today (which can refer to any point in time) are totally crazy and out of control. They listen to that rock music and gyrate at concerts. Having a good time at a punk show can be like warfare for the weak at heart.

Hey ho, let’s go
Hey ho, let’s go

They’re forming in a straight line
They’re going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The Blitzkrieg Bop

They’re piling in the back seat
They’re generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The Blitzkrieg Bop.

Hey ho, let’s go
Shoot’em in the back now
What they want, I don’t know
They’re all reved up and ready to go
