Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day performs at the 9:30 Club on Oct. 3, 2016.

Green Day has 30 years of history, tens of millions of albums sold, multiple Grammys won and a place in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. But until Thursday night, they’d never rocked the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

Now they have. And how.

Performing with a fuller five piece (complete with keys and a second guitar), the punk legends delivered new Revolution Radio song “Bang Bang,” and shot it down. 

Billy Joe Armstrong and co were lycra-tight for what was the first performance of "Bang Bang" on national TV.

The song appears on the group’s 12th studio album Revolution Radio, out Friday (Oct. 7) through Reprise Records. 

Watch the performance below.
