All Access Music Group is reporting that "X-Kid" is Green Day's next single and goes for radio adds on January 22nd February 12.
 
"X-Kid" is track number five on the band's latest album,¡Tré!. And in my opinion, it is one of the best songs in the whole trilogy. Let's hope that "X-Kid" can ramp up some excitement for Green Day's return to the world, especially after the mild success of "Oh Love" and failed "Stray Heart."
 
All Access is a source I've been using for several years to keep up on the latest radio singles, so I would certainly consider them a very reputable and reliable source.

Good to hear. It's a nice song that's grown on me quite a bit.

My favourite song from the entire trilogy. At least they've given themselves a chance with this one.

Not a bad choice, and I'm glad they're getting promo back out there! Side note: I would hardly call Stray Heart failed as it wasn't really a proper single to begin with.

Excellent choice from ¡TRÉ! Let's hope we get a CD Single with B-sides or something.

I think this is a great choice for a single. It just needs to get some airplay, damnit!

I think it's a good choice. It's my favorite from Tré! but it's the most single potential from this album in my opinion.

I think 99 Revolutions would have been a better choice if they're going for lots of airplay, but this is a good choice too.

99 Revolutions is too straight-up rock, it wouldn't get very far on today's radio. Plus it's too topical. X-Kid has very good pop appeal.

I'm pretty sure that's going to be the next single after X-Kid. I saw a copy of Tre in a record store the other day and there was a sticker on it saying something like, "featuring songs "8th Avenue Serenade, X-Kid and 99 Revolutions"

so apparently 8th Ave Serenade was a single. News to me.

HALLELUJAH!

 

Let's hope this one actually takes off.  With more than just alt rock radio stations playing it infrequently.... I want to know this is gonna hit more than just All Access.

It wasn't, they just put stickers like that on CDs....

God, I can't wait to see Green Day perform this live on say, Letterman or something.  Maybe they'll be out there with this song.
