Green Day – Bang Bang (Lyric Video)
4 years after releasing their ¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré! album trilogy, Green Day is back with a new song, Bang Bang, which is the first single from their upcoming 12th studio album Revolution Radio.
The animated lyrical video was directed by Ariel Costa. You can check out his work here.
According to frontman Billie Joe Armstrong, the song is written from the perspective of a mass shooter.
“It’s about the culture of mass shooting that happens in America mixed with narcissistic social media. There’s this sort of rage happening, but it’s also now being filmed and we all have ourselves under surveillance. To me, that is so twisted. To get into the brain of someone like that was freaky. It freaked me out. After I wrote it, all I wanted to do was get that out of my brain because it just freaked me out.”
Revolution Radio will be released on October 07, 2016.
