Green Day is ready to tour and start promoting the trilogy so we can safely assume that they will be scheduled to perform on various TV shows, such as David Letterman and Saturday Night Live.
I was curious to know, now that all three albums are out, which songs do you think they should play on television appearances to best promote the trilogy? Don't confuse this with what your favorite song is. For example, my favorite song on AI is Homecoming but American Idiot made more sense to market as a single.
I still think Stray Heart should have been promoted better because, imho, it would have been a very successful single. It had a great blend of rock, pop, a rhythmic danceable beat and lyrics that many people can relate with. I think Stray Heart & Stay the Night are good songs to promote. Lazy Bones, 99 Revolutions and Kill the DJ may also be good but the latter has explicit lyrics and the clean version sounds lame.
On shows that allow for more than one song, such as SNL, throwing in a song which is different from Green Day's typical style (such as Brutal Love, The Forgotten or even X-Kid) can prove to be beneficial.
