I mean, it's punchy, it's taking risks and it's trying something new and interesting. It's pretty much the best track to come out of the 'Three Housemen of the Apocalypse' that I was expecting. It's got great energy, has punchy production and its catchy as hell. Overall, this doesn't disappoint.

The verses sound like actual dogshit tho. And what the fuck is this album cover? It looks...bad.

DISAPPOINTING

I was hoping a new Green Day single would be the thing I needed to finally enjoy this band. Guess I'm still in the minority. Yeah, they still don't do it for me, even when they're trying to do a more lo-fi sound. The chorus is tedious and annoying, and Billie's vocal performance is still pretty aggravating, although much less irritating than usual due to the distortion on his voice. Formulaic, safe, unchallenging punk for middle-aged men who've been with the band since the debut ... read more
