VIDEO: Green Day Wants You to ‘Know Your Enemy’
Green Day’s first album in five years, 21st Century Breakdown, comes out next month, and the Berkeley trio have released their first video from the record, “Know Your Enemy,” directed by Michael Cullen.
Like 2004’s American Idiot, 21st Century Breakdown is loosely based around a theme, and is broken into three acts. Pretty high-minded stuff for a group whose first big hit, “Longview,” was about the pleasures of self-diddling.
The album was produced by legendary knob-twiddler Butch Vig (who recorded Nirvana’s Nevermind).
