No, really…that headline isn’t hyperbole.
Due out November 17 is a new greatest hits collection from Green Day titled Greatest Hits: God’s Favorite Band.
For those questioning how the band may have settled on that title, it comes from when they appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and “God” appeared in the ceiling of The Ed Sullivan Theater and declared that Green Day was his favorite band. (Haven’t seen it? Watch it here. It’s f*cking charming!)
Green Day’s latest greatest hits compilation features 22 tracks, including a new song called “Back In The USA” and a duet version of “Ordinary World” featuring Miranda Lambert.
God’s Favorite Band is currently available for pre-order at GreenDay.com and features various merch bundles some of which include prayer candles that are equal parts awesome and blasphemous.
In other words: They’ll make for excellent holiday presents!
