Green Day has had a big year with their politically charged new album, Revolution Radio. Following singles “Bang Bang” and “Still Breathing,” the band’s latest single is the title track. And know fans can finally see the music video for “Revolution Radio.”
The video focuses on Green Day performing the way they always have. We see Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tré Cool as teenagers playing Gilman back when they first started. We even get a glimpse of their days as Sweet Children, before Tré joined the band. That old footage fits right in with the band playing in 2017: Just three guys playing rock music with all the energy and fury they’ve had since they started. It’s a simple video, but one that shows Green Day as they were and as they are now.
Watch the “Revolution Radio” music video below:
Green Day has released two official singles so far, “Bang Bang” and “Still Breathing,” both of which come with music videos. The band has also shared seven lyric videos. The era started off with gritty animated “Bang Bang,” “Revolution Radio,” and “Still Breathing” clips. After the album’s release, the fun “Youngblood,” somber “Ordinary World,” and rollicking “Say Goodbye” followed suite. Finally, Green Day kicked off 2017 with a pointed jab at Donald Trump in “Troubled Times.”
You can buy Revolution Radio on iTunes or Green Day’s official website now, or stream it on Spotify. Speaking of Spotify, you can also see a four-part documentary of the band’s early years on Spotify, too. If you want a closer look at the Bay area punk scene Green Day sprang from, be sure to watch their new documentary, Turn It Around: The Story Of East Bay Punk. Both documentaries tie in perfectly with the nostalgic new video for “Revolution Radio.”
