Mainstream punk rockers Green Day dropped a video for their new song “Back in the USA” off their recently released greatest hits album, God’s Favorite Band. Based on the ‘80s, cult sci-fi film They Live, the video features Billie Joe Armstrong and the boys discovering a secret world right before their eyes.
Viewers with a keen eye might notice that Armstrong is playing a Gretsch Electromatic. In the behind-the-scenes video for “Back in the USA,” the crew actually lights the Gretsch on fire to get the perfect look that they needed to fit the video.
