Punk rock band Green Day is on the TV circuit promoting their new album Radio Revolution. Last night, that promotion brought Green Day to The Late Late Show with James Corden, where they performed one of their new hit singles ‘Bang Bang‘.
Before their performance, they also talked about their anti-Trump appearance on the stage of the American Music Awards (AMAs) last weekend where they shouted a chant — “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist U.S.A.!”
Green Day lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong explained “We’re just as much in shock as anyone else is about this so…but I think with the AMAs for us it was a good start to challenge him (Trump) on all of his ignorant policies, and his racism.”
Green Day’s arena tour for Revolution Radio starts in January and, as they reminded James Corden, this is one in a long line of tours for them as they have been together as a band since they were teenagers.
“This is our high school band. We’ve been in it since we were 16”.
Hard to believe they have been around that long, as they still sound and look just as young as they did when they first started out.
