Rovio has teamed up with US punk rock band Green Day for a musical themed episode of Angry Birds Friends.

 
The update to the popular Facebook game adds 10 new themed levels to the bird-flinging antics, and there will be more levels added in Autumn.
 
The episode will also play Green Day's latests single “Oh Love” and will offer an exclusive song called “Troublemaker” as an unlock. Additional exclusive content will come later.

Band members of Green Day will feature in the game as little green pigs, the baddies of the series, but it does not appear that players will be able to fire eggs and other bird-related missiles at the trio, as their images seem to be limited to background art.
 
“We’re all fans of Angry Birds,” said Billie Joe Armstrong, lead vocalist and guitarist. “It’s such an addictive game that when we first started playing it we couldn’t stop. Go Team Green!”
 
The move is a clever way to advertise Green Day's upcoming album ¡Uno!, which is set for release on 21 September.
