    Umm...what the hell happened here, Green Day? Lifelong fan here and, yeah this is extremely disappointing and I can honestly say this is the first time I've ever actively disliked one of their lead singles. Let me know what you guys are thinking in the comments, you KNOW I wanted to love this.

      You have no idea what you're talking about so you need to leave the reviews to people who actually do.

      If you hated it this much, you completely missed the point of the song. The whole upcoming album is supposed to be a troll against Warner Music to get them out of their contract. Of course it's gonna be subpar, it's not meant to be taken as seriously as most of their other works.

      Honestly man, it grew on me. I think if Billie hadn't messed with his voice I would have liked it more. However if the rest of the album has his voice like this I am not going to probably like this album. And this would be a first from my favorite band since I first heard Nimrod back in 97. So hopefully this is just one of those things.

        I mean this song is definitely a banger but it’s not great and it’s not terrible

          i like the alnum art, its like hey look at this, making everyone talk. also the songs dope, distorted vocals are dope, instrumental sounds like thee oh sees. kind of punchy psychedelic

            this is a clear example about how certain people are just not ready or open for new experimentation, he made his voice different to stand out for himself, to evolve as a musician, this really pisses me off. this is one of my favorite green day songs based on the fact that they really tried to do something different with their sound

          Man I’m 100000% with you. Been with them since Kerplunk. I don’t know what to do.

            The songs not bad at all so I'll wait before saying anything else about the album. The art cover does look ridiculous so I think the theories of it being a troll album may be true.

                I'm not at all happy with the new Green Day song and I really hope the whole album doesn't sound like this song.

                  I have no idea why this song got so much hate. It sounds like a breath of fresh air, it has more energy than most Green Day tracks since American Idiot and it just sounds absolutely fucking dope. But that's just me.

                        I hated the song when I first listened to it. HATED IT. But now I really dig the track. It's fun, it's quick and it's different.

                          green day have always been my favorite band since i was a kid but tbhthus new song is kinda ok, the beat and chorus are great and catchy but the higher pitched stuff idk, just hope the rest of the album is more of a call back to their stuff than this

                                  It's been a long time Green Day is not the same... And by that, I mean, they want to do things to new audience. Forget the punk scene, forget nice lyrics.... "Now we don't care"... Kinda reminds me of Blink 182 in the beginning... I think "The Longshot" was a better Green Day than this new Green Day itself... Let's move on, guys. The best description I've read was: "They are a Lollapallooza band now". You know those new bands that thinks they play rock, but it has a lot of post-production? Yeah, they became that thing... I'm disappointed too, big fan here, but very sad about them. P.S.: It looks BJ doesn't want to play guitar anymore. I've noticed that since American Idiot. He's kinda lazy in playing guitar, sometimes he mistakes the chords... Argh...

                                    I find it interesting that people are only now realising how commercially raped this band is. I picked up on it as far back as insomniac and started loosening my ties to it immediately. That was the last record I bought and I’ve only seen buggery from the periphery since.

                                      It's an amazing song that gets stuck in your mind, after listening to it a few more times, it's fucking catchy, And it has that Revolution Radio tone, which would make sense, since in the description of the video it has the year 2016, then this song would have to be a song removed from Revolution Radio

                                        1. Take a catchy but mediocre song with primitive lyrics (honey/money and stuff) that probably has little to no chance. 2. Record it in a way it would be hard to recognize the band. 3. Release it as an audio track, without even spending money on making a video. 4. Enjoy people's "wtf, who the hell is that?!" reaction.
                                        Wouldn't be very surprised if this song becomes a hit — or a meme. It is weird, but funny in a way.

                                          Yes the vocals suck - his voice was not true to his style, it is being altered for effect (meh) - scratchy, hard to grasp, nothing sounded good, fup - so disappointing

                                            Finally I’m not the only one for real any time I hear this song I hear that “rebel just for kicks” song the weezer song was so much better

                                              Sounds like Weezer trying to sound like QOTSA. Underwhelming.

                                                I bet this song/album is just to fuck up the label because this is their last year

                                                    Green day alway do the same type of music, same guitar, same voice, same drum and same bass they don't have originality
                                                    Everyone after father of all:
                                                    What the fuck is that?? It doesn't sound like green day! It's so different like their other song!

                                                        Gotta disagree this song is really good

                                                        • The TimeSplitters Channel

                                                          The live version of this song on Jimmy Kimmel sounded soooo much better than this studio version. His voice is just so overly distorted, I really dislike that. His voice needs to be more raw, that was a problem I have with a lot of modern Green Day songs. But this one just felt worse.

I like how father of all keeps the punk energy with an interesting new sound. Vocals took be bout ten listens to gt used to tho. I respect your opinion tho i couldnt wait to see what you thought about the song when it came out

                                                                                Didn't realise Muse were on this tour too. Billy Joe's falsetto is not strong enough for this style. Because Fall out boy's effort was relatively poor this sneaks into second place but a good distance behind not only Weezer but GD at their best too. 3.5/5 because it is slightly better than FOB and I gave FOB a 3. Once again I'm being kind. Anyway beck to Kerplunk to cleanse myself. Still a lot better than Blink 182's new effort though.

                                                                                  I like the song. At first I was like eh but after a few replays I’m digging it. It could use some work though. I liked the cover but I just realized today that they used the American Idiot cover. The instrumental is a bop but the vocals are... odd? Hopefully the new album won’t use the same thing they did here. When I first listened I thought they just got rid of Billie and got someone new.
                                                                                  Overall, I like the song. Not my favorite, god no, but it could use lots of work.

                                                                                    As a fan that has listened to every single album, every single one, is a huge fan of this band, I am extremely disappointed. In interviews Billie says that with this album they want to fuck with people so please let this be a joke album at 26 minutes as their last album with Warner Bros. This band is iconic and legendary, defined punk in the 90's all the way from the east bay, stood up for the majority minority in political heat, defined a generation of punk rock and has an incredibly history with influential sound and award winning songs. And if this isn't a joke album, with a track like this being so over-processed to sound like it belongs in a car commercial or FIFA, or if this album is genuinely a new album not made just to ditch Warner Bros. then I'm sad to say that Green Day have finally become sell outs.

                                                                                      Many of y’all suck. The song is great and has a raw rock n roll sound. 70s punk and glam. Stop being so fucking picky about sound production- and learn what rock music is. Your one of those fans that found out about Green Day through American idiot.
