The new GREEN DAY album “Revolution Radio” comes out on October 7th . . . and the title track was loosely inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement. But it sounds like it’s more about protesting than about the actual issue.
In an interview, BILLIE JOE ARMSTRONG said he was stuck in New York traffic that was caused by a Black Lives Matter protest. He later joined the march, but he was mostly just observing.
He said, quote, “People [were] completely rebelling against the old order or whatever you want to call it, to get something that’s more pure. There was this controlled chaos that was going on, and it was happening all over the country.”
