When I first learned my beloved band Green Day was releasing a new album AND going on tour next year, needless to say, I became very, very excited. I mean, this is my FAVORITE BAND!!!! Whenever I’m able to go see them live in concert, I go. I even had an opportunity to meet Tre Cool and take a selfie with him. So, a new album? I’m all over that.
The single, Father of All Motherfuckers, from the upcoming album of the same name, is available for download. I downloaded a copy the other day, and today I finally listened to it. I listened to it all the way until the end. For the first time ever, I have mixed feelings about a Green Day song.
Normally, I hear a Green Day song for the first time, and fall in love with it right away. But this time was different. I had read some of the reviews posted by other listeners on Google Play, and some of them weren’t good. That made me worry for a moment, but I knew I needed to hear the song for myself anyway. It’s more pop than I expected. Yes, there’s some autotune going on that I’m not too crazy about, and the song is very different from anything else Green Day has put out in the past. But that’s a good thing. They can’t release the same music all the time. That would be boring, and their fans would begin to lose interest.
I’m going to give this song some more time. I think it’s going to grow on me. To be honest, whether it does or it doesn’t, when it comes to Green Day, I’m a ride-or-die kind of girl. They can put out a gospel album, and I’ll listen to it. I’m happy Green Day is still together, and still putting out new music.
