Friday Music: "King for a Day" - Green Day

I give you Green Day's "King for a Day":

In this song, Billie Joe sings about challenging gendered expectations by dressing in girls clothes and his fictional father's reaction (i.e. treating the gender-bending as a sign of mental illness). It would be appropriate in the classroom for discussions of gender, masculinity, and medicalization.
