    Green Day have released their new song, “Bang Bang,” on Spotify and their website. The song comes from the new album, Revolution Radio, due out October 7th. Pre-orders are now up. The band sat down with Rolling Stone to talk about the upcoming album:


    It’s about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media. There’s this sort of rage happening, but it’s also now being filmed and we all have ourselves under surveillance. To me, that is so twisted. To get into the brain of someone like that was freaky. It freaked me out. After I wrote it, all I wanted to do was get that out of my brain because it just freaked me out.

    Awesome track. It doesn't really have the feeling of a "first single" like "American Idiot" did but very solid.

    "Give me death or give me head"? Is that what he says?

    Self-produced? ehhhhhhhh not sure that'll work, they have a big problem with just. not. cutting things. (If you read about the production process of AI it's clear that Cavallo had a big hand in cutting that album down too)

    Song's a ripper though.

    Didnt they self produce Warning? There isnt anything on that album that should be cut off.

    Cavallo was a "EP" on that one. Helped with almost all of it.

    Song is solid. Not worried about them self-producing. It looks like this album is 12 tracks, which is downright modest compared to the 18 tracks they kept for 21CB or the three fucking albums they released last time.

    I am down with this. Not amazing, but solid enough to make me think they've regained enough bite to make me forget about the fucking abysmal triple album.

    The guitar tone is killer and breakneck pace suits these guys better than anyone. This will be a monster live. This seems like an appetizer single - I agree it doesn't immediately grab like American Idiot did, even though it rips.

    But to be fair, what would? Can we really be surprised by these guys again? Or is just writing a solid album all most expect?

    Like it a lot more than anything off the trilogy so that's a good sign.

    Song is fun and if I was younger I might be really into this, but I just don't really care about a song with lyrics like this anymore at all.

    Bridge reminds me of "East Jesus Nowhere"

    Musically it's pretty good but this just isn't doing it for me in total

    Really good, and very catchy actually. It's like a cross between AI and Nimrod or something

    Cavallo's production on UDT was awful. Everything sounded way too slick, this has a little more weight to it at least.
