The Top 6 New Green Day Songs, and How to Remember Them

Categories: New Releases

2. "Kill the DJ": The disco one

And speaking of early-2000s indie rock bands, Franz Ferdinand will surely be requesting some royalties for this one, Billie. If that glassy guitar tone and modish disco beat weren't familiar enough, the song is a straight-up call to murder, strongly recalling the gloomy vibes of the Scottish disco punks. We loved them, so we can't help but dig the Green Day version.

1. Nuclear Family: The one that could only be from Green Day

The first song on ¡Uno! is also the best new song the band has released so far. It has all the makings of a Green Day's classic: oooh--ooh background vocals, a stop-start riff, a hugely hooky-melody from Billie Joe, and an upbeat pace. Most of the rest of these new songs see the band doing a decent-to-good job of sounding like other people, but "Nuclear Family" confirms that Green Day is still best at sounding like itself.

@GDLoT @sfallshookdown No love for Oh Love -- reviewer's missed a hell of a lot in dissing it like he did. Rest of the review's OK.

@Bastard_Of_1967 @SFAllShookDown it was the calling Oh Love the boneheaded one that made me lol. Not everyone will love every song on these.

@GDLoT @SFAllShookDown Oh Love charted at #1 on alt rock charts and has stayed in the top 10 for about 2 months now. "Boneheaded" my ass.

@greenday7290 Je veux bien comprendre qu'ils tapent sur Oh Love, mais ils sont un peu durs avec les autres quand même, Billie va pleurer :')
