Green Day: new 'Awesome As F**k' trailer

Green Day’s upcoming live album, “Awesome As F**k,” is due March 22.

The 2-disc set, which includes a CD plus bonus DVD, features performances captured during the band’s 2009-2010 World Tour in support of their album, “21st Century Breakdown.“

This week, Green Day released the first video from the project - “Cigarettes & Valentines” – which was the title track from an unreleased album by the band. What should have been the follow-up to 2000’s “Warning,” was reportedly stolen from the studio and the master tapes were gone. Rather than re-record the project, Green Day started over from scratch, and went on to create the legendary “American Idiot” set in 2004.

Last month, the band released a short version of a trailer for the live album; this week, a new, longer version has surfaced.
