Green Day perform “Still Breathing” and “American Idiot” on Ellen, their first-ever daytime TV appearance — watch

With a subtle dig at President-Elect Trump, to boot

After 30 years on the scene, Green Day have finally broken through the last barrier on their path to stardom: daytime television. The greatest pop punk band of all time made their daytime debut today on Ellen, checking the accomplishment off their list while simultaneously fulfilling a desire Ellen DeGeneres admits she’s had since launching the show 12 years ago.

Though there to support their new album, Revolution Radio, they actually opened with their classic “American Idiot”. They even included a dig at President Elect-Trump — though much more subtly than they did at the AMAs — by changing the final line in the first verse to “And can you hear the sound of hysteria?/ The subliminal mind-Trump America.” They also performed their latest alt-radio hit “Still Breathing”; watch that below, and find the “American Idiot” video above.
