Featuring cinematic tie-ins to the upcoming "Twilight" saga film finale, "Breaking Dawn -- Part 2," Green Day released its video for the soundtrack song, "The Forgotten."

The new video comes at a trying time for the band, following frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's very public iHeartRadio fest meltdown and subsequent substance abuse treatment and the band's 2012 tour cancellation.

"When we were asked to be part of the soundtrack, we readily agreed because the films are an insane cultural phenomenon," bassist Mike Dirnt said in a release. "We have always been impressed with the way the Twilight soundtracks are so carefully curated."

The soundtrack drops Nov. 13 and also features tracks by Cambridge's own Passion Pit, as well as Feist and Ellie Goulding. The film arrives in theaters Nov. 16.
