Green Day's New Music Video "Oh Love": Five Predictions for What's in Store

Back in April, perennial pop-punkers Green Day announced they would be selling out punk rock all over again by releasing not only one steamer of an album but three consecutive pieces of shit -- Uno, Dos, and Tres -- that, when listened to back to back, will sync up perfectly with YouTube footage of gorillas flinging feces.

County Grind isn't sure why the trio -- led by the least punk frontman of all time, Billie Joe Armstrong -- doesn't quit sullying its legacy and just rest on its multimillion-dollar laurels. You're telling us those dudes don't have a money jacuzzi they could be sipping champagne in all day long?

Anyway, tomorrow Green Day plans to debut the video for the first single, "Oh Love," from its concept trilogy on MTV: Wednesday, August 15, at 7:49 p.m. And we've got some predictions for what it might have in store.

5. What's Their Age Again?
Green Day is the biggest boy band since 98 Degrees. And Blink-182 were the trailblazers that finally annihilated the few remaining distinctions between punk and pop. So what better way to celebrate two decades' worth of living like a pampered poodle than to pay homage to the exposed genitalia that made it all possible. What we're saying is the video for "Oh Love" should be like Puppetry of the Penis starring Green Day.
