Green Day are proving they are still the father(s) of all motherfuckers.
On Friday (Sept. 20), the California punk rockers unleashed the music video for their recently released single “Father of All…” The two-and-a-half-minute music video features the band —decked out in black and gold attire— performing in front of a red-lit background. Hidden in the shadows is an array of dancers giving the video a very “Chicago”-esque feel.
In between the shots of the band is footage of random people dancing circa different decades. While the video focuses on dancing, the clip also features some mosh pits, wrestling, and even a gorilla having a heck of a time in a kiddie pool.
“We wanted to make something about dancing. Anxiety. Tribalism. Joy.. and straight-up violence. It’s the history of us. Meaning all of us,” Green Day posted on Instagram.
But if for some reason you feel like all the dancing was choreographed, you’d be wrong…at least according to the trio.
“None of this is choreographed..(except the hotties in red) we don’t need to be choreographed,” the group jokes.
Watch the video for “Father of All…” above.
“Father of All…” is the first single off Green Day’s upcoming 13th studio album Father of All…The forthcoming release is due out Feb. 7 via the band’s longtime home of Reprise Warner.
The music video comes a week after Green Day announced not only the release of the new album but also a massive summer 2020 tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Even though the Hella Mega world tour isn’t set to happen until next summer, tickets for the tour are already on sale and going fast.
We’re going to suggest getting yours ASAP.
