Watch Green Day perform ‘Revolution Radio’ and ‘Bang Bang’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

The punk rock trio gave blistering renditions of the title track and lead single from their twelfth studio album

Green Day performed the songs ‘Revolution Radio’ and ‘Bang Bang’ on US chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (November 21).

The Billie Joe Armstrong-led trio released their twelfth studio album last month, which hit number one in the UK in its first week – the band’s third number one album in the UK.

Appearing as the musical guests on last night’s episode of Kimmel, the trio – plus live member Jason White and keyboardist Jason Freese – ripped through a rendition of the title track from their recently-released album in front of a packed-out audience outside the chat show’s LA studios.

Last night’s performance of ‘Bang Bang’ did not include the Donald Trump-baiting line “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA“, which Armstrong added to the lyrics during Green Day’s appearance at last weekend’s American Music Awards.

Armstrong has said that the shock victory of Donald Trump in the Presidential election feels like “a death in the family” and has called for “something drastic” to remove him from office.

Speaking to NME after the results were revealed, Armstrong said that the weight of the Republican’s victory was difficult for the nation to comprehend.

“Well everything feels brand new right now, and pretty raw – but but I don’t think anybody was prepared and that’s why you see so much shock and outrage right now,” Armstrong said. “Nobody thought Trump would win and that’s why everybody is scared out of their minds, but I think that when you get desperate and feel that you’re not heard. Already, you are starting to see demonstrations. for example there were 100,000 people in New York and there’s a lot more to come. I hope that continues.”
