Today the track you need to listen to is actually off of Green Day’s latest album, “Revolution Radio”. Despite the fact that I don’t listen to them as much as I used to, Green Day will always be my favorite band. Monumental albums like “American Idiot”, “Dookie”, and “Nimrod” are some of the first records I listened to religiously, and it’s fair to say that Green Day has had a massive impact on my life and what genres of music I enjoy the most. So when I saw their announcement about a new album coming out in 2016, I had to give it a listen, despite the fact that I rarely listen to the California based punk band now.
After giving “Revolution Radio” a listen, I can conclude that the whole project is decent, but tons better than their previous releases of “¡Uno!”, “¡Dos!”, and “¡Tre!”. However, what truly stood out to me is the track, “Still Breathing”. “Still Breathing” is an uplifting track that has a melody and chord progression similar to some of the iconic Green Day songs of the late 90s and early 2000s. This fantastic new Green Day track successfully merges the nostalgia filled old sound every Green Day fan loves with the new sound that Green Day has recently adapted. If you ever enjoyed any release from Green Day, then you absolutely need to give “Still Breathing” a listen! I’ve attached the track below for anyone who wants to hear. We’re glad to be back with more “Track of the Day Tuesday” installments for 2017 and we can’t wait to share more reviews and content that we have in store for the near future!
