The Unbearable Banishment: you've got to hand it to Green Day

you've got to hand it to Green Day

Have you heard the new single from Green Day, Know Your Enemy? Holy shit, man. These guys amaze me. How long have they been at it? 20 years? And they’re still great!

Billie Joe Armstrong is the grand master of the lyric and crunchy guitar hook. He inherited the guitar lick mantle from Keith Richards after Keith stopped giving a shit (right after Tattoo You, if you ask me).

Give this a listen but close your eyes. The visuals are a lot of kewl rock star poses and explosions, which can be off-putting, but the song is extraordinary. And if you want it, buy the single from iTunes or wait for the album to come out and then buy it. DO NOT FUCKING STEAL THIS SONG! That bullshit has got to stop.

WTF? will not play outside of the USA!

Looks like I'll have to 'borrow' it from somewhere else.

Michele: I told you so.

Jimmy: I re-embedded the version from YouTube instead of the band site. C’mon back and try again.
