When I first started streaming the new Green Day single “Father Of All…” off their upcoming album of the same name I thought I had clicked on the wrong video link. The track felt more like something you’d find on an Awolnation album than on an album of one of pop punk’s most celebrated artists. But then I remembered how long ago “Dookie” was released and reminded myself that artists need to evolve to survive, and that the Green Day of today is not the one of yesteryear. So if you’re a “Dookie” Green Day fan like me, you might not especially like this new tune, but you might find it interesting to see where the band has evolved to. Check it out below.
“Father Of All…” is due out February 7th via Warner/Reprise Records.
