Watch a modern romance unfold in Fall Out Boy’s music video for ‘Bob Dylan’

Surprise! Fall Out Boy has released a brand new music video.

On Wednesday (Dec. 4), the Chicago-founded act unleashed the three-and-a-half-minute clip for their new song “Bob Dylan.”

The video follows Frankie, a cartoon character, who only wants a girl named Star Dust, to answer his text messages.

The clip begins with our star relaxing in a bathtub, sending a text to Star Dust while simultaneously watching Fall Out Boy’s music video for “Dear Future Self (Hands Up).” Like we all fear, Frankie drops his phone in the tub (he’s going to need A LOT of rice to fix that). He submerges himself under the slew of bubbles to rescue his probably-messed-up device and ends up in an alternate universe.

In this world, Frankie is a star, getting rides in limos, appearing on billboards, going on late night shows, showing up to red carpet events, and appearing on magazine covers. All the while, he’s still trying to get Star Dust’s attention, which she doesn’t reciprocate.

Frankie seems to be doing all that he can to get Star Dust’s attention, but in the end, it doesn’t matter. She finally sends him a text saying that she likes him for him.

Watch the music video for “Bob Dylan” above.

“Bob Dylan” is featured on Fall Out Boy’s latest greatest hits compilation Believers Never Die Volume 2. The 13-track collection was released last month and features the group’s singles from 2003 to 2008 (aka right before they went on that heartbreaking hiatus) as well as two new tracks (“Dear Future Self (Hands Up)” and “Bob Dylan”).

Next summer, Fall Out Boy will join Green Day and Weezer on their massive Hella Mega tour.

The lengthy outing will include shows in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and Canada during the summer months of 2020.

The lengthy trek begins on June 13 at La Defense Arena in Paris and concludes almost three months later on Aug. 29 at Citizens Bank Park. The full list of tour dates can be found here.

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.

Watch Green Day take the dancy route in ‘Father of All…’ music video

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.

Green Day to embark on a ‘Hella Mega’ tour with Weezer, Fall Out Boy

The good news?

Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy ARE totally hitting the road together for a massive (and epic) tour.

The bad news?

The tour isn’t happening until summer 2020.

Cue the groans of fans across the world.

On Tuesday (Sept. 10), the California punkers finally confirmed what fans have been speculating for a week or so. Dubbed the “Hella Mega” tour (a worthy name, if we say so ourselves), the upcoming trek will find Green Day, Weezer, and Fall Out Boy sharing the mantle of headliners while the Interrupters will play the role of supporting act throughout the long journey.

The lengthy outing will include shows in the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and Canada during the summer months of 2020.

“It’s kind of a Green Day idea. And we talked about how we weren’t really wanting to do stadiums and do something that was like [a] throwback to Monsters of Rock Tour. There was, of course, Fall Out Boy and Weezer and now we’re stoked,” Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong tells Zane Lowe on his Apple Beats 1 show.

Tickets for the “Hella Mega Tour” go on sale next Friday, Sept. 20, at 10 a.m. local time.

Watch the ridiculously creepy announcement video for the tour here.

The “Hella Mega” tour will be in support of Green Day’s recently announced new album, Father of All… (its official title is Father of All Motherfuckers). The record, their 13th full-length LP, is due out Feb. 7, 2020, via their longtime home of Reprise/Warner.

To coincide with all the announcements, the group has unleashed the album’s first single and title track “Father of All…” Listen to the new song above.

According to Armstrong, Green Day’s new album is going to be relatively short, clocking in at under 30 minutes.

“[The album] is only 26 minutes long, so it’s the shortest record we’ve made, I think since Dookie or Insomnia,” the frontman told Lowe.

“I realized I hate long songs.”

Father of All… is the follow-up to 2016’s Revolution Radio.

Later this month, the trio will release their new graphic novel Last of the American Girls (yes, it’s named after a track from their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown). The book is due out Oct. 29 through Dey Street Books.

Like Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy have some new tunes on the way. Weezer is set to drop their 14th studio album Van Weezer in May 2020 while Fall Out Boy will release a complication album titled Greatest Hits: Believers Never Die – Volume Two in November.

Watch: Green Day takes viewers on the road in new ‘Youngblood’ music video

Green Day is getting a leg up on the competition and giving their fans an early holiday present. On Friday (Dec. 14), the California-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Youngblood.” The two-and-a-half-minute clip gives the viewer an inside look at what happens behind the scenes when the trio are out on the road.

The music video features footage of the guys meeting fans outside of venues, hanging out backstage with their crew members and family, rehearsing their set, and of course footage of their massive shows during their Revolution Radio tour. It’s also really cool to see how a band that has been together for such a long time still act like a bunch of teenagers before, after, and during a show.

Check out the music video for “Youngblood” above.

“Youngblood” is featured on Green Day’s 2016 release, Revolution Radio.

According to the band, the song was originally intended to be featured on the group’s “lost album,” Cigarettes and Valentines.

“There’s one song that was written a long time ago that’s on the new record [Revolution Radio] called “Youngblood’” and that got a facelift and new lyrics and stuff like that,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told NME in 2016.

While it has been several years since the iconic punks released new music, it looks like things may be changing soon. During an Instagram live stream, Armstrong revealed that he was currently in the process of writing new Green Day music.

“I’m writing new songs for gd now,” the frontman revealed on the live stream.

Even if new music may not see the light of day in 2019, fans have become suspicious that the act may have something up their sleeves. Following several posts on social media showing the band rehearsing Dookie and Insomniac in full, fans have begun speculating that they may embark on an anniversary tour in 2019.

Only time will tell.

Billie Joe Armstrong’s the Longshot release debut album

Last week, Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong confirmed he had been working on a side project named the Longshot after months of cryptic posts on social media. Along with the formal announcement, the musician also released three songs from the act’s soon-to-be-released debut album. While the caption on the band’s official Instagram profile made it seem like the album would not see the light of day for quite a while, the note turned out to be a distraction.

On Friday (April 20), the Longshot released their debut album, Love is for Losers. The record features a total of 11 songs including the three tracks that were previously released (“Taxi Driver,” “Chasing a Ghost,” and “Love is for Losers”). Currently, the full album is streaming on Spotify while it can be purchased on all digital service providers.

In addition to streaming the new album in full, Armstrong and company unleashed the official music video for “Love is for Losers.” The almost-three-minute clip finds the band performing the song in what looks to be a casino sign graveyard. Watch the full clip above.

The official announcements about the Longshot come several months after posts about them began to surface on Armstrong’s official social media accounts. One of the group’s first posts on Instagram was an image of white paper with black words scribbled on it. As it turns out, those words were the track listing for Love is for Losers.

The Longshot join Foxboro Hot Tubs, SWMRS, Pinhead Gunpowder, and the Armstrongs on Armstrong’s long list of side projects.

Listen: Billie Joe Armstrong’s the Longshot drop new EP

“What is up with all the cryptic messages Billie Joe Armstrong has been posting on Instagram?”

This may be one of the many questions fans of the Green Day frontman have been asking for weeks. On Thursday (April 12), longtime followers finally got an answer when the musician unveiled he has been working on a side project named the Longshot. In addition to confirming the name of his side band, Armstrong also released the group’s self-titled EP.

The three-song EP comes as a huge surprise to anyone who has been following the cryptic clues left behind by Armstrong. The new music was not only quietly released on a Wednesday (new music is typically released on Fridays), but there was also no prior announcement.

While the three songs can be found on a wide variety of DSPs, the tunes are currently streaming on YouTube. Listen to “Love is for Losers” above.

Back in February, the band posted an image on their official Instagram page which featured what appeared to be four song titles; “Taxi Driver,” “Love is for Losers,” “Chasing a Ghost,” and “Body Bag.” As it turns out, three of those scribbled-down titles ended up becoming the songs featured on the recently released record.

For those wondering whether or not this will be a full-time thing for Armstrong or if a complete studio album will come in the near future, a caption on the band’s Instagram says it all. “New album ‘Love is for Losers’ coming eventually sooner or later. Probably sooner.”

While we now have a total of three songs from the Longshot, there is still a lot questions listeners have including who is officially in the band (aside from Armstrong of course). There is some speculation that Armstrong’s son, Joey, is the drummer thanks to an Instagram posting, but no confirmation has been made.

This isn’t Armstrong’s first time pursuing a side project during Green Day’s down time. To date, he’s been a part of the Foxboro Hot Tubs, SWMRS, and Pinhead Gunpowder while also joining forces with Rancid’s Tim Armstrong (no relation) to form the Armstrongs.

Watch Green Day bring color to a drab world in ‘Back in the USA’

Last month, Green Day announced plans to unleash a brand new greatest hits album and now that the album is here, so is the music video for the record’s only new track. On Friday (Nov. 17), the iconic California-based band unleashed their politically charged music video for “Back in the USA.” The video begins with the trio living their lives in a very oblivious, “Leave it to Beaver” lifestyle.

About 15 seconds into the clip, the narrator is heard foreshadowing what is about to happen in the music video. “They don’t know it yet, but their lives will soon change forever because they’re about to see the truth.”

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong is sitting at home with this “wife” and “son” when there is a knock on the door. A salesperson is at the door selling some glasses. When Armstrong puts the glasses on, he sees color and the truth as opposed to the gray-scale and lies he is accustom to. Not being able to keep his discovery a secret, he calls over bassist Mike Dirnt and drummer Tré Cool to show off the glasses. As Cool and Dirnt try on the glasses, posters that cover the room begin to read things like “conform” and “consume” while the television showcases the headline “President to Lie to Nation Tomorrow Night!”

The next day, the guys concoct a plan to break into the news station where the president’s address will take place to show the public the truth and bring back color into their otherwise gray world. As they sneak in dressed as Secret Service agents, the guys put the truth glasses on the camera revealing a gross, zombified, liar of a president at the podium. As the band takes over the stage and the zombie president is rushed off by the real agents, color begins to seep back and the public’s eyes are opened once again to the truth.

Watch the music video for “Back in the USA” above.

“Back in the USA” is featured on Green Day’s latest greatest hits album, God’s Favorite Band. The record includes a slew of the band’s biggest hits as well as the new version of “Ordinary World” featuring country music superstar Miranda Lambert.

Green Day, Stevie Wonder, The Killers to headline the Global Citizen Festival

Green Day, the Killers, and Stevie Wonder are just some of the big names set to invade New York City later this year for the 2017 Global Citizen Festival. On Tuesday (Aug. 1), the annual, good-cause music festival announced a diverse lineup for the 2017 incarnation of the musical event. Pharrell Williams, Big Sean, Andra Day, the Lumineers, Alessia Cara, and the Chainsmokers will also be featured on the lengthy bill. According to a press release from the music festival, more special guests will be announced over the upcoming weeks.

The goal of the Global Citizen organization is to ask their followers, referred to as Global Citizens, to hold their leaders accountable for major world issues. Prior to the big concert event, Global Citizen will be campaigning to create major changes in the areas of education, food security, healthcare, gender equality, and sanitation. In addition to that, the group also aims to end poverty, take on climate change, and fight all kinds of inequalities by 2030.

“We’re grateful to be a part of this year’s Global Citizen Festival,” begins Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong in a statement. “American aid programs make a significant difference in the betterment of lives at home and around the world, and we should all want these programs to become stronger, not weaker. We all play a part in seeing this mission through and it starts with calling on all our leaders.”

“In this crucial time, there is nothing more exciting to me than having the honor of giving my gift of song, words and motivation to the Global Citizen Festival,” said two-time performer Stevie Wonder. “When we commit ourselves to life issues, we are showing love of the Most High. I was, I am and will always be, a citizen connected to the spirit of everyone on this planet moving forward. Let’s go!”

“We can’t wait to get back to our hometown of New York City and play for 60,000 people who have done amazing things to change the world,” begins the Chainsmokers’ statement. “We are so thankful to our fans for getting online and taking action to support less fortunate people around the world. We’ll see you on Sept. 23!”

The 2017 Global Citizen Festival will take place on Sept. 23 at New York’s Central Park. According to the music festival’s website, they are expecting approximately 60,000 Global Citizens to attend the musical event. Like the past years, tickets for the show will be distributed via a lottery system. Fans can get involved and informed on how to become a Global Citizen by checking out the music festival’s website here.

Watch Green Day channel their past with ‘Revolution Radio’

With the North American leg of their Revolution Radio tour on the horizon, Green Day has taken a break from their live shows to give fans a new music video. On Tuesday (June 13), the California-founded band released the music video for their latest single, and album’s title track, “Revolution Radio.” The music video combines archival footage and new footage of the band performing at 924 Gilman Street, the Berkeley punk venue where the group formed.

About two minutes into the clip, there is a blink-and-you-miss-it reference to the band’s original name, Sweet children, which appear painted in white on a wooden plank. Even with the almost 30-year difference and some changes like the guys’ hair color and age, some things do remain the same like 924 Gilman Street’s interior is the same and Green Day can still put on a show. Watch the music video for “Revolution Radio” above.

“Revolution Radio” is featured on Green Day’s recently released record by the same name. The record was released last October through Reprise Records and instantly earned the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

In support of Revolution Radio, Green Day will hit the road this summer for a massive summer tour. The North American leg of the Revolution Radio tour will kick off on Aug. 1 at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, Washington and wrap up on Sept. 13 at the Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, California. United Kingdom-founded act, Catfish and the Bottlemen, will open for Green Day during the full excursion. The complete list of tour dates can be seen here.
