Green Day Sample “Total Asshole” Gary Glitter on New Song, Donate Royalties

Green Day have shared a new song from their forthcoming LP Father of All.... It’s called “Oh Yeah!,” and you can hear it below.

In the YouTube description for the music video, the band disclosed that they sampled Joan Jett’s version of the Gary Glitter song “Do You Wanna Touch Me? (Oh Yeah)” for the new song. “One of the writers on that song is a total asshole so we’re donating our royalties from this song to IJM and RAINN,” they wrote.

“Oh Yeah!” is the third song on Father of All... following the title track and “Fire, Ready, Aim,” which arrived as part of a new NHL partnership. The record, which comes out on February 7, follows 2016’s Revolution Radio.

Later this year, Green Day head out on The Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer. Get tickets here. (Pitchfork may earn a commission from purchases made through affiliate links on our site.)
