The hugely popular Fearless Records compilation is back. Last month the label teased fans with the news of a second volume of Punk Goes 90s, and today we finally have all the details. The track list will include songs by classic ’90s bands such as Foo Fighters, Smash Mouth, and Green Day, being covered by acts like Yellowcard, Memphis May Fire, Falling In Reverse, and Mayday Parade.
We’re a little wary of the idea of Yellowcard covering The Smashing Pumpkins or Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! taking on Smash Mouth’s “All Star,” but hope we’re proven wrong. You can check it out yourself when the album drops on April 1st, and view the full track list and Get Scared‘s cover of “My Own Worst Enemy” below. (more…)
In their first public appearance since frontman Billie Joe Armstrong‘s stint in rehab, Green Day will premiere their documentary, ¡Cuatro! at the X Games Aspen on January 26. Though we got a sneak peak at the film back in November, the band has now released a full-blown trailer for your enjoyment. The trailer sees a fast-paced intro with a flash of lyrics, the smashing of guitars, fervorous drumming, and plenty of rock.

Just months after Billie Joe Armstrong‘s iHeartRadio Festival outburst and rehab entry, long time punk rockers, Green Day have announced a few U.S. tour dates this March and April. Although Armstrong’s entry into rehab caused a few cancellations in the band’s tour dates, Green Day has said that tickets purchased for their original ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! tour will be honored.
West Coasters, feeling left out? No need to worry. The band promises that shows in your area will be announced in early 2013. You can find the dates after the jump.
