Green Day honor Martin Luther King Jr. Day with anti-Trump video for ‘Troubled Times’


Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in America, and Green Day have marked the occasion by releasing a politically- and socially-charged new lyric video for “Troubled Times.” The track is the latest single off the Bay Area punk band’s recent album, Revolution Radio.

“Today we celebrate love and compassion more than ever,” says frontman Billie Joe Armstrong in a statement. The video, which you can watch below, takes aim at President-elect Donald Trump while honoring King’s legacy; it was directed and designed by Manu Viqueira with typography and art design by David Rodriguez Simón.

Green Day fans in Massachusetts have multiple opportunities to see the band live in the coming months; first at the DCU Center in Worcester on St. Patrick’s Day, and at the XFinity Center in Mansfield on August 28.
