The last of a dying breed.
Green Day’s 21st Century Breakdown won’t land in stores until May, but Rolling Stone scored an early listen to six tracks this afternoon.
The 16-track album is broken into three acts — Heroes and Cons, Charlatans and Saints, and Horseshoes and Handgrenades — and Dirnt told AP magazine that the songs “speak to each other the way the songs on [Bruce Springsteen’s] Born to Run speak to each other. I don’t know if you’d call it a ‘concept album,’ but there’s a thread that connects everything.”
Green Day - F.O.D. (Fuck Off and Die)Let's nuke the bridge we've torched 2,000 times before.
This time we'll blast it all to hell.
I've felt this burning in my guts now for so long.
My belly's aching now to say.
Inspection 12 - F.O.D. (Green Day cover)
Josh Eells’ on Green Day’s “American Idiot Musical
Green Day - Hybrid Moments
In honor of Metallica’s 30th Anniversary, Green Day recorded a cover of Misfits’ “Hybrid Moments” from Static Age. The cover was shot and recorded live in the studio.
Green Day - Oh, Love
This is the new Green Day single. Remember when American Idiot came out and the public lambasted them because they were no longer “punk rock”, then came to the conclusion that hey, this is actually a really good album. Then Green Day turned it up a notch by going full on arena rock and releasing what may be the worst album of their career. Well this time, they’re toning it down by releasing 3 full albums. Back to back. Because that’s never been a misstep in anyone’s career.
The song is called “Oh, Love” and it comes from ¡Uno! which is due out September 25, 2012 and was described as the “power-pop” album of the trilogy. [source]
