After debuting during the NHL's Lake Tahoe game, 'Here Comes the Shock' landed on streaming services on February 21st.
US punk rock heroes Green Day have served as the official band of the National Hockey League (NHL) for the last two seasons, using the platform to debut new music at new games.
Father of All Motherfuckers single 'Fire, Ready, Aim' was shared in September 2019 and became the opening theme song for NBC Sports Network’s Wednesday Night Hockey. The song was also be used for NBC’s NHL broadcasts throughout the 2019-2020 season.
With the NHL’s big Outdoors at Lake Tahoe game between the Colorado Avalanche and Vegas Golden Knights happening on Saturday, Green Day used the occasion to premiere their latest track, 'Here Comes the Shock'.
The new track comes after Green Day revived their The Network moniker for December’s Money Money 2020: Part II: Told Ya So!, marking the project’s first full-length release in nearly 17 years.
Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong also dropped his No Fun Mondays solo cover LP back in November, including covers of Adam Schlesinger’s That Thing You Do! theme, The Bangles’ 'Manic Monday', and The Shondelles’ 'I Think We’re Alone Now' on the tracklist.
The visuals for HCTS feature punk rock aerobics exercises, with an enthusiastic fan acting out the moves.
