I want to hear a song from this album more than I want a beautiful wife, children, 75 million dollars, and White Sox season tickets.

C'mon guys. Give us the lead single real quick.

I'd take the 75 million dollars, personally. Regardless, lead singles are always nice.

I had a thought this morning, Is This It (the song) is probably my least favorite of their album openers. What say you to that?

I also listened to New York City Cops this morning and remembered how it was removed from the US release because of 9/11 and how weird it is to think of how taboo certain songs and movies became at the time. Anyways, I like that song a lot, it's fun.

While I think I'd choose the latter, I definitely share your excitement.

It's on the US vinyl version.

It's a good question, all of the album openers are great. I really love all three, but I'd probably rank:

1. What Ever Happened?
2. Is This It
3. You Only Live Once

New York City Cops is one of their best songs, surely. And it was a highlight both times I've seen them. Interestingly, the first time I saw them they played it as the second to last song of the night, and when I saw them last summer they opened with it.

Machu Picchu is a great name for a rock song, and I'm especially happy that it's the opening track.

I guarantee that song kicks ass.

I think their label did, yes. Why, I don't know. You think "Bleed American" sounds fairly patriotic, but whatever. It wasn't, "Bleed, American".

yeah, and that kind of irritated me at the time because it did sound the opposite of offensive as far as i was concerned.

so maybe it just got changed back a few years later. when i took a look at their discography on allmusic, it had it back at the original title and i didn't see any mention of it ever being changed so i figured maybe that never happened. but i also figured you, if anyone, would know.


now that i've derailed this thread, you may have it back. i listened to "new york city cops." decent song.

Seriously, I like the song titles, but will reserve judgment after actually listening to them. Judging songs based on song titles only is veering dangerously close to EYKIW territory.
