    May not be the name of the album, but that’s been what the collection of songs they’ve written and demoed has been referred to internally.

    Live footage of me looking in this thread. Every. Single. Time.

    August 2089. Somewhere in the American Colonies of Europe, a teenager is listening to a clandestine radio transmission: “...and unfortunately the news from California are not very good either. Emperor Trump’s forces are reportedly advancing trough the rebel lines, while the resistance is bravely holding its last standing outpost in El Camino. Fight until the end my friends, let’s not make that head in jar smile again! But we have always to see the glass half full: a dear friend of mine just whispered into my neurotwitter feed an exciting news, the cyborg punk rock band Green Day is coming back on September 16 with its decades awaited 13th record! With this exciting news we wish you good night, this is everything from Revolution Radio, stay tuned tomorrow for more updates from the operation no control!” GDC, which had to migrate into a neurologically implanted and meme-based board of discussion after that Dude’s tracklists overloaded its internet servers in 2037, is still populated by a few desperate souls, restlessly awaiting the yet to be named album 13. “Are we the waiting” is now the most hated Green Day song in the world (someone says on a par with Nightlife), and part of the fanbase is skeptical about the cybernetic upgrades keeping the band on the stage. “This cyborg thing will make their sound too pop, I still want to hear the guitar solos!!!”, someone posts. The news of an album release in September shakes the community, and while a few elder wisemen remind the younglings about the Kerrang! Radio drama from 2019, Matt’s cloud uploaded consciousness posts a cryptic message: “I told you Green Day will be the focus of the summer, but I didn’t specify which summer. LoL”. GDFan2089, an old GDC user who forgot the password for his 43d account and had to create a new one, checks his Mindstagram and immediately post something: “Check CyberMike story about mushroom clouds popping up everywhere!!!!! This must be a hidden clue about the album announcement, maybe nuclear family part 2 confirmed!!!!”. The world comes to an end without Album 13. An alien looks at this nuclear desolation from its spaceship and comments: “Too bad. At least Tom DeLonge will stop harassing me”. The End.

    Bang Bang was the perfect lead single, probably the best one they ever released. It's fast, aggressive and snotty but also poppy, catchy and mature.

    I hate when Green Day is mentioned alongside the likes of these younger pop punk bands like Simple Plan and All Time Low. Green Day sounds SOO much different and has more of a classic rock vibe.

    To be honest I'm glad that they keep their political statements in their songs vague for the most part. It prevents the songs from becoming dated and irrelevant over time. Mentioning specific political figures or specific policies or talking points of the time is essentially the same thing as an artist from the mid-2000s saying something about Myspace in a song. It doesn't hold up over time and keep relevance. That's why American Idiot continues to draw in new younger fans. For the most part the politics gets the point across while being vague enough to fit outside of the time frame it was written in. Same with 21st Century Breakdown. Someone listening even decades down the road will be able to relate to it. However, if they specifically mention Trump for example the song loses its impact and meaning as time moves further away from Trump's presidency.

    ... or the account will just become public. Video and audio don’t work too well in a book 🙃

    @steve46 and I are the only two really paying attention here. Straight from Billie Joe, new album is called I Still Have This.

    Songs for Assholes would be a great return to their tongue in cheek approach from the 90s.

    I cannot believe you just used the word Libtard. What’s next, snowflake? Communist?

    My 18 year old just told me she thinks the 5 Seconds of Summer cover of American Idiot has more “punk energy” than the original. 😭 I’ve failed as a parent

    Maybe "Pray For Peace" isn't made up.

    Pray for Peace sounds like the title of a U2 album.

    I also don’t like watching him jump around in the back corner of the stage and then throw out one or two backing vocal. It bothers me for some reason

    I think its cynical to say Billie is “trying to be woke”. Obviously he feels strongly about political issues, as shown by some of his Instagram rants and breakdowns. I’m 100% sure he is not using politics as a marketing strategy. And I think the lyrics of American Idiot and Holiday are brilliant. There may be metaphors, but honestly they’re almost prophetic about our state of near-fascism today. Bang Bang also has some great lyrics regarding the psychology and entitlement of a male white mass shooter. If your beef is with Troubled Times, you need to remember that he was trying to avoid being too political on Rev Rad and said he refuses to write any songs specifically about Trump. Again, I think this has everything to do with people on the far left, which I am one of, shooting thenselves in the foot by expecting their artists and politicians to embody their idea of what the perfect representative is, and then completely dismissing the attempt of it doesn’t meet their standards. It’s an all or nothing attitude that I think is unrealistic and more harmful than helpful.
