Green Day have released their new single titled Oh Yeah!

After teasing the release on their social media channels last week, sharing a gif of wrestler Randy "Macho Man" Savage along with his catch phrase 'Oh yeah', Green Day finally shared the single along with a video today.

The track takes its title – and chorus – from the band's longtime hero Joan Jett and her song Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah). The track was originally a cover of a Gary Glitter song released in 1973, which the disgraced singer co-wrote.

The band say via their YouTube channel: "BTW we sampled a song from the great Joan Jett’s Bad Reputation album. One of the writers on that song is a total asshole so we’re donating our royalties from this song to IJM [International Justice Mission] and RAINN [Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network]."

Oh Yeah! will feature on Green Day’s upcoming studio album Father Of All…, with the band debuting the title track and follow-up single Fire, Ready, Aim, late last year.

The follow-up to 2016’s Revolution Radio will launch on February 7 through Warner Records, with Armstrong previously telling Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1: "It's only 26 minutes long, so it's the shortest record we've made since Dookie or Insomniac.”

Green Day, Weezer and Fall Out Boy will head out on the road together across the UK, Europe and North America in 2020 on The Hella Mega Tour in 2020.
