Green Day just dropped their highly-anticipated new album Father Of All...To coincide with the release, the trio revealed a new music video. The music video is for a song titled “Meet Me On The Roof.”
Green Day announced Father Of All… back in September of 2019 and fans have been looking forward to the album ever since. They dropped three singles “Fire, Ready, Aim,” “Father Of All…” and “Oh Yeah!” All of which were gigantic successes.
Speaking on the new sound of Father Of All… Billie Joe Armstrong discusses his influences.
“I knew I wanted to do something different,” Armstrong tells Rolling Stone in regards to his search for a new sound. “I’d always loved British mod music from the Sixties, but I wanted to go to where the source was and see if I could put [soul] through the Green Day filter. It was a lot of trial and error, a lot of pulling my fucking hair out.”
Before you stream the entire Father Of All… record, check out their sweet new music video for “Meet Me On The Roof.” The video stars Gaten Matarazzo from Stranger Things. For those who don’t know, he plays Dustin Henderson.

The music video is an adorable schoolyard love story. We see Matarazzo try to impress his crush by performing an Evel Knievel-esque stunt on the rooftop that green Day is playing. Check it out below.
“Meet Me On The Roof” Lyrics
I’m crawling on the dance floor
I think I lost my phone
Feeling like a toothache
My face is going numb
I beg 1000 pardons all my friends are crazy hanging from the window
All you got to do is jump
Come meet me on the roof tonight girl
Oh how high is your low gonna go girl?
Oh come meet me on the roof tonight
Oh how high is your low gonna go girl?
I’m hanging with the cholos
Cruising down the strip
Sleeping with a pillow
Waking up in spit
I’m taking drowning lessons
Secret words and true confessionals
And the worst is yet to come
So meet me where the good times go
How high is your low?
As far as I can go
