Money Money 2020 (pronounced "money, money, two-thousand twenty") is the debut album by the new wave band The Network. It was released on September 30, 2003 through Adeline Records.

The album came with a DVD that featured six music videos for songs on the CD directed and produced by Roy Miles of AntiDivision. It was re-released by Reprise Records on November 9, 2004. This release did not include the DVD, but did include two additional tracks, "Teenagers from Mars" (which also appeared in the video game Tony Hawk's American Wasteland) and "Hammer of the Gods".

The Network is reportedly partially formed from members of Green Day, though the band denied this before. This is in spite of the fact that Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's vocal style can clearly be heard on some tracks on the album, as well as Green Day bassist/vocalist Mike Dirnt. The frontman left a message on the official Green Day message board saying, "I bring them to this country, I produce their album, and how do they thank me? By talking shit about my band? I've only got one thing to say: Fuck the Network. Bring it on."[citation needed]

Money Money 2020 is rumored to be related to the Green Day album entitled Cigarettes and Valentines due to the album's release date and many other similarities. However, Armstrong denies this, as well.[1]

In a recent live show, the Foxboro Hot Tubs, one of Green Day's side projects, covered the song "Supermodel Robots."[2]

The song "Roshambo" was featured in the video game NHL 2005.

The song "Teenagers From Mars" was featured in the video game "Tony Hawk's American Wasteland." and it was covered by "The Sunshine".
