When Green Day were just a trio of East Bay youngsters cutting their teeth as a punk band, they were regulars at the 924 Gilman Street scene in Berkeley – the famous punk club still in operation. For years, Billie Joe, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt could be seen playing many a packed, sweaty gig a they honed their sound and, eventually, broke out into the mainstream.
The band’s new video for “Revolution Radio,” the title track off their 2016 album, finds the guys back at their old stomping grounds once again in a clip that blends new footage with archival early days glimpses of Green Day in action.
It also serves as some promotion for the upcoming documentary film Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk, a project featuring the band as executive producers.
Watch the video below:
Armstrong posted about the video and its connection to the band on Instagram:
