If you're familiar with Green Day, you should know some of the members sometimes perform as a cover band called the Coverups.

Just a week ago, the band made a return to play a special show at Oakland, California's annual 40th Street Block Party.

Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt formed the band with touring guitarist Jason White, audio engineer Chris Dugan and tour manager Bill Schneider.

Over the past few years, the band have performed under a few different aliases ranging from the Network to Foxboro Hot Tubs. It looks like they're settling into performing under this name now with it being inconspicuous enough to stay a surprise.

The 40th Street Block Party billed their lineup to include "classic rock from The Cover Ups" which flew over most people's heads. Luckily, someone caught on and knew the performance was happening, taking the opportunity to film the band's entire hour-long set.

They performed covers from classic punk and rock bands including the Misfits, Ramones, the Clash, Nirvana, David Bowie and more.

You can watch the full performance in the player below.

The band appear to be teasing something this week after the members each posted a cryptic photo.

Recently, the band broke our hearts when they shut down rumors that a new song was coming.

When asked about the rumor, Green Day’s representatives shut down the announcement that a new track was on the way.

“Definitely no Green Day single any time soon,” they say.

Now, the band are teasing us on Instagram with something strange which you can see below.
