Green Day has dropped a new song called “Oh Yeah!,” which will appear on the band’s upcoming album, Father of All…
The track samples Joan Jett‘s vocals from her 1981 song “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah),” a cover of a tune originally recorded and co-written by Gary Glitter.
Glitter is now a convicted rapist and sex offender — or, as Green Day puts it, a “total a**hole” — so the punk trio is donating their royalties from “Oh Yeah!” to the human rights and anti-sexual assault organizations IJM and RAINN.
“Oh Yeah!” is available now for digital download, and you can watch its accompanying video now on YouTube.
Father of All…, the follow-up to 2016’s Revolution Radio, arrives February 7. It also includes the previously released title track and “Fire, Ready, Aim.”
Green Day will hit the road in support of Father of All… this summer on the Hella Mega tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer.
