Green Day share NHL opening theme song ‘Fire, Ready, Aim’

Green Day is ready to take aim and fire.

On Thursday (Oct. 10), the Calfornia punk rockers unleashed another new song from their upcoming studio effort.

Titled “Fire, Ready, Aim,” the track is not only the latest single from their forthcoming record but also the theme for the 2019-2020 NHL season.

The song and its accompanying music video made its worldwide premiere during the New Jersey Devils versus Philadelphia Flyers game on Wednesday night (Oct. 9).

The barely two-minute clip for the song features the threesome playing the track in the middle of the ice rink surrounded by flames, special effects, screens playing montages of the players, and yes, that is drummer Tré Cool shooting a puck into the net.

The full video can be found here, while the audio for the new track can be streamed above.

Green Day’s performance comes a few weeks after news broke that the band had signed a two-year deal with the NHL. The partnership will find the group and the league joining forces throughout the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons.

The deal includes the now-released opening theme song for NBCSN’s Wednesday Night Hockey and the headlining set at the 2020 NHL All-Star Game set to take place on Jan. 25 in St. Louis.

“Fire, Ready, Aim” is the second 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.

Last month, 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.

This may be an excellent time to add Hella Mega tour tickets to your holiday shopping list….we’re just saying.
