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]."
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.”
