Yes, I also love playing this song. It reminds me of Seinfeld

I like the song "Wake Me Before September Ends" but I hated the sappy dialouge between the two young actors at the beginning of the video. I had to hit the mute button. I also couldn't stand the girl screaming "OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!" in the middle of the video.

Green Day is at their all-time best, while U2 is at their all-time worst.



Yes, I can write stupid posts with the best of 'em.

With AI, I see a band not only pushing their creative envelope and expanding their musical horizons but mastering them as well.

With HTDAAB, I see a band excelling in what they do best but also what they know will work and will give them more success for sure. There is no risk, no chances taken, just a formula for the most part.

Hence I prefer the former.

I like my punks goofy and immature. Is that so wrong? Give me a good ol' song about masturbation, anytime.

I need to listen to this cd more. I think I listened once or twice right though when it first came out, but that's it. Love AI, Holiday and September, Boulevard is kind of meh to me - panders to disenfranchised youth too much, for my liking.

This will be my next commute CD.

Thought I ran into you down on the street
Then it turned out to only be a dream
I made a point to burn all of the photographs
She went away and then I took a different path
I remember the face
But I can't recall the name
Now I wonder how whatsername has been

we are all allowed to have our own opinions here zoot. and as a matter of fact, i generally don't mind yours. so i feel as though we can agree to disagree. i'll just say that while i agree with your assessment of htdaab for the most part, i feel that american idiot is as equally contrived - just in a different manner. "let's put on eye liner, get all political, and be real punks again! yeah! oh, don't forget to sign that deal for the verizon commercial."

I never thought about it that way! Hell... AI sounds awesome and I guess that's all that concerns me.
