Father Of All... - Green Day
Father of all MotherF*ckers, better known as Father of All..., is the 13th studio album by the American punk rock band Green Day. It was released on February 7th 2020, via Reprise Records. This album is Green Day's last album to be released within their current contract with Warner Bros.
The 2010's were a rough decade for Green Day, first starting out with an ambitious project of releasing a trilogy of albums entitled: Uno, Dos, and Tre, within a few months of each other. However, most of those albums, particularly Dos, are seen by fans and critics as some of their worst material and least successful commercial album since their major label debut Dookie. Years later Green Day would return in 2016 with their more return to form Revolution Radio, which brought back a strong creative energy to the band. So how does this album fit into this?? The lead singer, Billie Joe Armstrong described this album prior to its release as, "The New! soul, Motown, glam and manic anthemic. Punks, freaks and punishers!" He would also state that the lyrics are about "the life AND death of the party" and the "lifestyle of not giving a f*ck.". So is this album how Billie Joe describes it as, well, not really.
There were three singles released prior to this album being released. On the day of their new tour was announced the Hella Mega Tour with Weezer and Fall Out Boy, Green Day (and all the other previously mentioned bands) each dropped new songs, Green Day released the title track to their new album, Father of All... They would also release the next two songs on the album Fire, Ready, Aim and Oh Yeah! a song featuring a Joan Jett sample of Do You Wanna Touch Me?
