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.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
