The clip is focused on a snippet of the single "Know Your Enemy" being played before a seemingly infinite audience at an unknown venue, but also includes brief glimpses of pyrotechnics, theatrical moments involving a guy in a skeleton suit, confetti cannons and other things that make a Green Day show seem, well, awesome as f**k.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
