Kids these days, with their streaming services and YouTube videos and iTunes downloads. Green Day apparently miss a simpler, more analog time, judging by their new video for “X-Kid,” a song from the band’s trilogy-closing album ¡Tré! There’s not a lot to look at: the band presses play on a tape and lets it roll. It’s similar to the Replacements’ clip for “Left of the Dial,” but even that one had some minor camera work.
