Listen To Green Day’s New Single ‘One Eyed Bastard’
Green Day have shared their fiery new track One Eyed Bastard. The electrifying song is the band’s final offering ahead of the arrival of the Californian punk-pop heroes’ new studio album, Saviors coming out on 19 January 2024. You can listen to it below.
“One Eyed Bastard started off as just a riff that I had — a shuffle, almost like a Black Sabbath kind of riff,” reveals Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong. “Lyrically, I was just reflecting on bad times in life. That’s the thing about nostalgia — sometimes you think, ‘That was an awful time.’ Everybody’s got that ugly place in their life where they have to deal with ugly thoughts — it could be like revenge or whatever. Thankfully, I have an outlet in songwriting.”
One Eyed Bastard arrives on the heels of Green Day’s show-stopping Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve performance, where they performed two fan favorites from Dookie and two from American Idiot along with Dilemma from the forthcoming Saviors. The new album will also feature Look Ma, No Brains! and The American Dream Is Killing Me, which hit No. 1 on Billboard Rock & Alternative Airplay.
As an added surprise, Green Day recently announced free listening parties for Saviors. These events will happen in over 200 indie stores worldwide starting on 13 January. Fans will have the opportunity to listen to Saviors ahead of its January 19 release. All events are free and will have exclusive giveaways while supplies last.

Recently, Green Day announced a larger-than-life 2024 global stadium tour with support from the illustrious rock luminaries The Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid and The Linda Lindas in North America and Nothing But Thieves, The Hives, Donots, The Interrupters and Maid Of Ace in Europe.
