2016 seems like one big pop-punk reunion, with Simple Plan, Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Blink-182 and now Green Day all making a powerful comeback. The latter have just released a music video for their new single, Bang Bang, and it’s as bold as its name suggests.
While you wouldn’t think a group of three model-looking girls would be capable of robbing a bank, this sure looks fun, especially when they’re pretending to be Green Day! I’m not sure how throwing stolen cash all over at a gig serves as a reason good enough to frame a band, but who really cares?
The song slightly reminded me of The Offspring and that’s a sign that Green Day’s upcoming Revolution Radio album will be more punk rock than ever. Besides, according to frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, Bang Bang is “the most aggressive single we’ve ever had”. No doubt about that.
* Revolution Radio is due for release on October 7.
