Thanks to Green Day themselves the iconic American indie rock band performing live at New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, with both ‘Father of All‘ and ‘When I Come Around‘, is now available to watch as many times as you like on their YouTube channel.
And, as someone on Green Day’s YouTube channel commented about the videos, “Finally! An upload of this that isn’t in someone’s living room”. Yep, I wholeheartedly agree.
Because, let’s face it, since many people saw Green Day live at New Year’s Rockin’ Eve a few days ago, most have been dying to get their hands on a video of that stellar performance.
After all, it really is not that often you get to see the band performing at such a prestigious event. Or performing live at all, for that matter.
Green Day’s garage punk track ‘Father of All‘ hit the number one spot on the Billboard RockAirplay chart upon release, and is the lead single from the band’s upcoming thirteenth studio album Father of All Motherf*ckers (or, the censored version Father of All...).
An album that lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong has said is literally about “not giving a f*ck).
That 10-track album will be releasing on February 7th, 2020 via the Reprise Records label.
‘When I Come Around‘, of course, is the rock band’s most iconic song, as well as one of the most successful alternative rock songs of all time.
Seeing it performed live almost 25 years after it was first released then is pretty damned cool. Especially with a performance this energetic and this stellar.
Watch Green Day live at New Year’s Rockin’ Eve on December 31st, 2019 with both ‘Father of All‘ and ‘When I Come Around‘ in their just released videos.
I don’t know about you, but that just made my Saturday.
And….if you enjoy Green Day’s live gigs, you may also want to revisit this awesome performance of ‘Still Breathing‘ on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert back in 2017.
