From the Vault: Green Day
Earlier this week, pop-punk trio Green Day released the official music video for "The Forgotten," the band's contribution to the final Twilight saga soundtrack, which hits stores November 13th. The nostalgic and heartfelt power ballad incorporates swelling strings (which we, of course, love) and tender, soaring vocals, courtesy of lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong. The ethereal and melancholy tone of the song is even reminiscent of the group's monumental hit "Wake Me Up When September Ends." The video features scratchy, analog-styled footage of the band layered between scenes of Bella, Edward and company pulled from the upcoming film, which gives viewers a sneak peek into the highly anticipated end of the treasured series. Watch the video for "The Forgotten" below: Green Day's second installment to their ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, ¡Tré! trilogy, ¡Dos! hits shelves November 9th while the final installment of the Twilight film series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 hits theaters November 16th.
And psst . . . we have a final installment headed your way too. Stay tuned Twihards!
