Shoot Me: Youth Part 1 is the third extended play by South Korean band DAY6. It was released by JYP Entertainment on June 26, 2018 and features six original tracks.
Shoot Me: Youth Part 1, shocking the media with its drastic change in sound. While their previous releases fall in the soft rock genre, Shoot Me: Youth Part 1 has a far more aggressive sound with punk rock influences and intense lyrics. The quote “vicious words hurt like a bullet,” depicted on the album’s concept photo, drives the main focus of the album’s lyrics.
There’s a variety of songs featured on the EP with tracks like “Warning!,” which has a heavy guitar and drum influence, “Talking To,” which has a disco punk influence, and “Still,” which closes the album as a sentimental ballad.
The lead single “Shoot Me” describes the feeling of helplessness associated with crumbling relationships. Backed with powerful instrumentals and sampled gunshots, the single set the pace of the album.
