Revolution Radio from the eponymous album (available on October 7th 2016)
Tuning: Standard 
Key: A but some parts sounds in Am like in "Bang Bang". Anyway it's pointless for we play power chords here

Youtube cover : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpwmVtLpjvY&index=4&list=PL-hUNl-NnuShNRndzQk09BOlqch-PWioQ

Another Green Day new song from the album "Revolution Radio" coming on October 7th
As soon as I listened to the song I took my guitar and I picked up the chords for you

Here's my multicam cover : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpwmVtLpjvY

As usual I give you the full chords for those who would like to play an acoustc version 
but you have to play them as power chords (the EAD or xADG strings) to have a Green Day sound

Chords:

A : 533xxx or x022xx
F : 311xxx or x8 10 10 xx
Dm and D : x577xx
G : 355xxx
C : x355xx 
F#m : 244xxx
E : 022xxx or x799xx

All of your suggestions are welcome !

Enjoy !

[Intro]

I give you the little guitar medley:

e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-10-10-----10-10-----------10----12-10---------|
G|-------9-9-------9-10-10-10----10-------10-10--|
D|-----------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

A F (x4)
  
[Verse 1] 

A              D               A             Dm      A
Stay with your hands up in the sky, like you want to testify
        D                G       E
For the life that's been deleted 
A           D            A
Sing like a rebel's lullaby
   Dm               A                D                    G       E
Under the stars and stripes, for the lost souls that were cheated
F                          E
We will be seen but not be heard

[Chorus]

        A  
We are, revolution radio
F#m
Operation no control
        D         G                A     D
And the headline, my love's bullet proof
         A
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
F#m
Debutantes in surgery
        D         F
And the headline, legalize the truth

A F G C (x2)

[Verse 2]
        A                 D               A
Give me rage like there's tear gas in the crowd
       Dm               A             D             G       E
Do you want to live out loud, but the air is barely breathing
A             D                 A
Lies, all the slums to the obsolete
    Dm                  A            D           G     E
The dawn of the new airwaves for the anti-social media

[Chorus]

        A  
We are, revolution radio
F#m
Operation no control
        D         G                A     D
And the headline, my love's bullet proof
         A
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline
F#m
Debutantes in surgery
        D         F
And the headline, legalize the truth

[SOLO]

A F G C (x4) + Bass solo

Chords:

A F#m D G A  ... G

[Bridge]

F                          E
We will be seen but not be heard
F                          E
We are the songs of the disturbed

[Chorus]

        A  
We are, revolution radio
F#m
Operation no control
        D         G                A     D
And the headline, my love's bullet proof
         A
Give me cherry bombs and gasoline

Debutantes in surgery
        D         F
And the headline, legalize the truth
