Is This The Tracklist For Green Day’s New Album, Father Of All…?
With little over a month to go until the release of Green Day’s new album, Father Of All Motherfuckers, it appears as though they have sent a copy of the record – minus the actual music or album insert – to a fan in the band’s native California.
As posted on GreenDayFans.com, lucky recipient Jason was anonymously given the vinyl sleeve for album number 13, meaning that the back cover and tracklist are now (supposedly) out there in the world.
“Imagine my surprise when an anonymous package, postmarked from California, arrived in my mailbox containing the album we’ve all been waiting for, Green Day’s Father Of All Motherfuckers which isn’t due out until February 7, 2020!” Jason writes. “Alas, my initial excitement was only slightly dampened when it turned out the package contained just the vinyl sleeve for Green Day’s 13th studio album and did not include any type of insert, but I certainly wasn’t complaining.”

The tracklist seems pretty legit, given that it contains the titles of Green Day’s already-released singles (the title-track and Fire, Ready, Aim), as well as a couple of song names that Billie Joe Armstrong had exclusively told Kerrang! in an interview last year (Junkies On A High and Sugar Youth). On top of that, the frontman also revealed there was a song sampling Joan Jett’s Do You Wanna Touch Me called Bulletproof Backpack, but that could well have be named Oh Yeah! instead, which is a recurring lyric on the original track.
The full tracklist for Father Of All… is reportedly as follows:
1. Father Of All…
2. Fire, Ready, Aim
3. Oh Yeah!
4. Meet Me On The Roof
5. I Was A Teenage Teenager
6. Stab You In The Heart
7. Sugar Youth
8. Junkies On A High
9. Take The Money And Crawl
Interestingly, Billie Joe had also mentioned in our interview that there would be a song named The Art Of The Deal With The Devil (based on Donald Trump’s book, The Art Of The Deal), but Jason ponders that it may have been changed to Take The Money And Crawl, the ninth track on the album.
“…It would be my guess that Art Of A Deal With The Devil was retitled Take The Money And Crawl, possibly to avoid confusion that the song is inspired by Donald Trump (which Billie Joe Armstrong has stated none on the album are) given the similarity the previous title had to his book The Art Of The Deal,” says Jason.
