Green Day and the National Hockey League partnered up to debut Green Day's new single "Fire, Ready, Aim," as the opening theme song for NBCSN's Wednesday Night Hockey. Kickstarting last night's game between the New Jersey Devils and the Philadelphia Flyers in the Metropolitan Division, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers' song was a blaze of roaring guitar riffs, hand claps, and high choral falsettos.
The action-packed lyrics, "Stick a hammer in your mouth, you're a liar, knock your teeth out to the ground," served as a surefire match for the energetic battles on the ice as the song will be broadcasted throughout NBC's 2019-2020 NHL season.
Green Day shared in a statement, "This NHL season is hereby known as LOUD season...where the toughest athletes to ever lace up a pair of skates meet the baddest rock band on the planet. So turn up the volume on your TV sets, fire, ready, aim and enjoy the ride."
A screaming testament to the power and momentum of the band, Green Day remains a force to be reckoned outside the rink, too, as they prepare for a massive 2020 summer tour with Weezer and Fall Out Boy, which will follow the launch of their new album Father of All, set to release February next year.
