The Network, Which Isn’t a Green Day Side Project, Returns With New Music

Long-dormant new wave band release Trans Am EP ahead of new album Money Money 2020 Part II: We Told Ya So!

The Network, a long-dormant new wave band that does “not” feature members of Green Day, has returned with their first music in 17 years.

“The Network were formed in the year 2003, fulfilling an ancient prophecy predicting that we, its chosen members, would issue a stern warning to mankind in the form of music,” the secretive band said in their manifesto. “Released as the album titled Money Money 2020, we shined the headlights upon the follies and vanity of mankind. Rapidly achieving fame and fortune, we had often been mistaken as the planet’s greatest rock & roll band, Green Day. This earthly comparison is almost as comical as the humans that inhabit this dying planet!”

After 17 years of silence, the Network recently activated social media accounts, announced they signed with Warner Records — also home of Green Day, coincidentally — and uploaded a chaotic track called “Ivankkka Is a Nazi” on their new YouTube page. That song, and three others, make up their new Trans Am EP, an appetizer before their new album — Money Money 2020 Part II: We Told Ya So! — arrives on December 4th.
