The Friday OT: Green Day; Longview

Here’s what happened (and there are witnesses): Last Monday was a lockdown throwback music day, where you seek and listen to albums you played to death in the 70s/80s/90s/whenever. The decade was the 90s and after finding out that Chili Peppers’ Blood Sugar Sex Magik had not stood the test of time well (still a couple of strong tracks, but mostly…no) it was time for Green Day and Dookie. This album could have been done yesterday and is wonderful still, but Longview was a new revelation:

This track is amazing, everything Green Day in one special package. Youtube here and you’re getting the album track not the video, because the Youtube video sound quality sucks.

Extra Ball: And why the blinking flip not? Best blowout punk track of the last 20 years.
