Green Day's new single, 'Oh Love', is about "shooting from the crotch area."

Green Day's new single is about "shooting from the crotch."

The band's 'Oh Love', is all about losing yourself in the moment when it comes to love, with a dash of their trademark cheeky humour thrown in.

Frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told MTV News: "'Oh Love' is kind of like leading with your heart and not necessarily with your brain as much.

"And kind of maybe losing your mind, and shooting a little bit more from the crotch area."

Bass player Mike Dirnt added: "It pulls from the heartstrings, and it's about love and sexual tension and things like that."

After the more politically charged 'American Idiot' and '21st Century Breakdown', Mike says the punk group are ready to party again on new records ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! - the third named after drummer Tre Cool - which will be released between September and January next year.

He added: "It's more of a fun atmosphere with these next records, going into more of a party thing, almost kind of a 'hell party.

"We have one song called 'Makeout Party,' which the events actually occurred. And that's almost what the next video for 'Oh Love' is sort of like. So, it's going to be a lot of fun touring this next cycle and bringing it to people live."
