And today, the exciting first installment of our riveting three-part series, What Will Green Day Do Next? After the shouty, stadium rock success of American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown, after touring Broadway and Billie Joe becoming a mentor on The Voice, what will be the East Bay pop-punk trio's new big move? Will they slide into a phase of tepid radio-baiting a la Weezer? Will they pay tribute to the generations of rockers who came before? Will they still do Broadway shows?
We can't spoil it for you, kiddies, but starting now, you can find out for yourselves: ¡Uno!, the first of the band's three upcoming new albums, is streaming in full online.
It's over on Green Day's Facebook page, so you'll have to like them on Facebook to hear it. Actually, no, you'll have to do more: The album stream in sponsored by Nokia, and to actually hear it, you have to go through some annoying brand-endorsement shit on Facebook. It's not that bad, but Sept. 25 also isn't that far away.
So if you don't feel like endorsing Nokia, just check out what we've written about the new Green Day stuff so far:
