The Network (Definitely Not Green Day) Have Released A New Song
The Network – the mysterious, anonymous band who are definitely not Green Day in disguise – are up to something. That is to say: releasing music. Only available by their social, ahem, network, the band have shared the video for new tune We Told You So to Instagram.
Green Day frontman and apparent The Network super-fan Billie Joe Armstrong spotted the clip, and responded on his own account: “What the actual fuck?” So, thank you for your fandom, Billie. Without it, we’d never have known the band you’re definitely not in had new music out. And he was good enough to continue denying the band were Green Day.
He’s far too busy, anyway. For one thing, his No-Fun Mondays covers series that he started in lockdown is getting a proper release on November 27. And he’s also been using this down time to whittle away at a new Green Day record.
“I’ve been writing a lot of music, and I had all these melodies in my head, so I wrote, like, six songs since all of this has been going on,” he said. “I don’t know when I can get together with Mike [Dirnt, bass] and Tré [Cool, drums], but I told them to make sure that they’re quarantined for now, and then I hope down the road we can get back in the studio with [Father Of All… producer] Butch Walker.”
So yeah. Far too busy to be in The Network. Definitely not him.
Stay up-to-date on all cancelled and rescheduled tours, festivals and events this year.
The annals of rock history is littered with smut, filth and generally seedy gags. Here we look back at some of the most ridiculous wordplay about the birds and the bees…
