Track Of The Day: Green Day - 'Bang Bang'

The last we heard of punk pop legends Green Day was four years ago in 2012 when they released a whole trio of new albums. I can't help but think that if they slimmed those tracks down to a single album, it could have been their finest moment. Four years later and they return with a new album entitled 'Revolution Radio', due for release later this year. The first taster from it is this frantic new single 'Bang Bang', which according to lead singer and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, is "about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media." Armstrong also stated that the album is meant to reflect the current state of chaos in the United States.

The album is due on October 7 and will be the band's first entirely self-produced product.
