Intro:
A
Why why why why
A
Why why why why
 Gbm      E
Why why why

Verse 1:
A
I was off
                       Gbm
Keying cars parked on radium lawns
     E
By suburbian moms
A
I called a friend
A
Let's meet at ten
       Gbm
Go wherever we want
                E
'Cause no one cares that we're gone

Pre-Chorus:
A
This town don't got much to do
A
You and I haven't got much to lose
Gbm                                            E
Do you wanna rock in your room like we always do?
A
Talk about how fast we grew
A
And all the big dreams that we won't pursue
      Gbm                                         E
Then get in your car and laugh 'til we both turn blue

Chorus:
                   A
'Cause we are the helpless, selfish, one of a kind
     A
Millennium kids, that all wanna die
  Gbm                                          E
Walking in the street with no light inside our eyes
             A
We are the worthless, cursed with too much time
    A
We get into trouble and lose our minds
     Gbm                                         E
Something that I've heard a million times in my life

Generation Why

Verse 2:
  A
Parents think, we're fast asleep
         Gbm                              E
But as soon as we're home, we're sneaking out the window
A
'Cause at this rate of earth decay
              Gbm
Our world's ending at noon
                  E
Can we all just move to the moon?

Pre-Chorus:
 A
This town don't got much to do
 A
And you and I haven't got much to lose
         Gbm                                    E
Do you wanna leave everyone in this place for good?

Chorus:
                   A
'Cause we are the helpless, selfish, one of a kind
     A
Millennium kids, that all wanna die
  Gbm                                          E
Walking in the street with no light inside our eyes
             A
We are the worthless, cursed with too much time
    A
We get into trouble and lose our minds
     Gbm                                         E
Something that I've heard a million times in my life

Generation Why

Bridge:
A                            Gbm
Why why why why why why why why

We're livin' night to night
 Dbm                          E
Why why why why why why why why

Since we're bound to die, oh
 A                            Gbm
Why why why why why why why why

Oh, what's the use in trying?
 Dbm                         E
Why why why why why why why why

And it's exactly why

Chorus:
                   A
'Cause we are the helpless, selfish, one of a kind
     A
Millennium kids, that all wanna die
  Gbm                                          E
Walking in the street with no light inside our eyes
             A
We are the worthless, cursed with too much time
    A
We get into trouble and lose our minds
     Gbm                                         E
Something that I've heard a million times in my life

Generation why

Outro:
 A                            Gbm
Why why why why why why why why
  Bm                       E
Why why why why why why why why
  A                           Gbm
Why why why why why why why why
  Bm                         E
Why why why why why why why why

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
