Number 1972, which appears in the video, has spurred a discussion of its own. Most fans tend to believe it’s a new album title, or at least, a new single. Hardcore Green Day fans have immediately connected the dots, as all the band members were born that year. More precisely:

  • Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar) was born February 17, 1972;
  • Mike Dirnt (bass) was born May 4, 1972;
  • Tre Cool (drums) was born December 9, 1972.

Here are some of the fans’ comments:

idontwannanamex: 1972. New album name? Love it! Cuz in 2022 you’ll be 25 for the 2nd time!

_besilentlydrawn: I guess that rumor about Billie telling a fan that they’re releasing new music soon is true…

xjuliajkx: I’m not sure what’s going on, but it looks hella promising. I’m excited

gogetthebelt520: please be better than father of all
