Green Day release video for new single 'Oh Yeah!' - Announce they'll donate all royalties to charity

After teasing the release on their social media channels last week: 




Green Day have shared the single and video for their new single titled Oh Yeah!  upcoming studio album Father Of All…,


Now here's the interesting part ... the anthemic song is a nod to their long time hero and Baltimore native - Joan Jett ... The song's  title and chorus come from her 1984 hit Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah).  But that song was actually a cover of a song Gary Glitter co-wrote and released in 1973. (Glitter has been convicted many times of child sex offenses and who is currently in prison 


So the band released this statement: 


"BTW we sampled a song from the great Joan Jett’s Bad Reputation album. One of the writers on that song is a total asshole so we’re donating our royalties from this song to IJM [International Justice Mission] and RAINN [Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network]."

 So check out the song below and don't miss Green Day when they hit the road this summer Fall Out Boy and Weezer for the Hella Mega Tour - including a date in DC at Nationals Park on August 21 - scroll for full tour dates
