    GREEN DAY’S “BANG BANG” NO. 1 AT ALTERNATIVE RADIO

    LEAD SINGLE FROM NO. 1 ALBUM - REVOLUTION RADIO - MARKS BAND’S 10TH NO. 1 SINGLE

    LOS ANGELES, CA – OCTOBER 31, 2016 – Green Day’s single “Bang Bang” has climbed to the top of both the BDS and Mediabase Alternative Charts marking the 10th No. 1 song for the Grammy® Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. “Bang Bang” is the lead single from Green Day’s 12th studio album, Revolution Radio, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart a week after its release on October 7th by Reprise Records.

    With “Bang Bang” reaching No. 1, Green Day now are tied with the Foo Fighters in third place for the most No. 1s on the Alternative Chart. Green Day No. 1 songs have spent a cumulative total of 51 weeks at the top of the chart. Those songs include: ); “Longview” (June 1994); “Basket Case” (August 1994); “When I Come Around” (January 1995); “J.A.R.” (August 1995); “Minority” (September 2000); “American Idiot” (September 2004); “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” (December 2004); “Holiday” (May 2005) and “Know Your Enemy” (May 2009). “Bang Bang” is also Green Day’s 21st Top 10 song.

    Produced by Green Day and recorded in Oakland, Revolution Radio is a potent 12-track blitz of angst-ridden anthems that unites Green Day's fully formed stylistic approach with lyrical themes that address the complexities and uncertainties of modern day existence. Musically, the album is raw, visceral, and fearless -- solidifying the band's reign as one of the leading voices in rock music.

    Revolution Radio was praised by Alternative Press: "The most intensely personal Green Day album in years," Entertainment Weekly: "Their most focused album in years," LA Times: "A barnstormer of a new punk record," Nylon: "...delivers in terms of music, lyrics, and an unstoppable and quintessentially Green Day energy," Q: "Revolution Radio is Green Day back at their best," Rolling Stone: "It reflects decades of accrued emotional and musical wisdom," USA Today: "A bracing return to form," and many more.

    In other Green Day news, the band will embark on its Revolution Radio World Tour in January 2017. A full list of dates and ticket information can be found at www.greenday.com/tour.
