Emergency evacuation protest
May impair your ability to operate machinery
Can't quite tell just what it means to me
Keep out of reach of children, don't you talk to strangers
Get your philosophy from a bumper sticker

Warning, live without warning
I said warning, live without warning
Without, alright

Better homes and safety-sealed communities
Did you remember to pay the utility?
Caution, police line, you'd better not cross
Is the cop or am I the one that's really dangerous?
Sanitation, expiration date, question everything
Or shut up and be a victim of authority

I'd be quite happy if Bill allowed another 13 years to go by before this gets played again.
please, no more. RP is better than this.

sorry - you must be thinking of the White Stripes
This album is boring compared to Dookie or American Idiot
Green Day was bearable, perhaps even sometimes enjoyable, up to, and including Dookie, the follow up to Dookie even had some moments... but after that...down.the.tubes.

I could live without Greenday very well.

I didn't know the kinks song until I heard it recently in a kodak commerical, and I thought, "that sounds just like green day!" I then researched and found out it was the kinks. That "picture book" is a great song though. Makes me want to buy some old kinks albums :)
Well, it's HP, not Kodak, but I'm sure they won't mind -- anymore so than Green Day caring if you like their song so much you go out and buy a Kinks album!

Amen to that! It's nice to have something familiar mixed in with the unknown.... makes for a "just what the heck is he going to play next" theme. I get SO tired of people on here complaining about "mainstream" stuff. Go start your own radio station if it is such a huge problem....
Is it just me, or can anyone else hear the HP commercial, you know the really cool one where he is pulling photographic paper off of his head, simultainously capturing a shot of his mug? Picture book, pictures of your mama...

ok song...but not what i wanna hear on RP
Certainly easy enough to hear on any mainstream local radio station, but I'm glad RP plays it. Part of diversity is including the mainstream.

I certainly can hear this on any local radio station and it is not the best GD song, but glad RP is playing it. Part of diversity is including the "main-stream". Luv thier song Minority. Hope RP plays that too.

Hm, except they are from CA and don't have Brit accents. Sure.
I recall the lead singer describing himself as "faking a brit accent" or something along those lines. Personally I think Green Day is not worthy of being called "Punk".
Boring
Ohh it's only the 2978312nd time that I'v heard this song in the last week. 2978311 times on commercial radio plus one time on RP. It's ok I guess, especially with wonderwall mixed in.
meh... boring. I could hear this on any old radio station. "picture books"
killer tune. good to hear some GD on RP :D

What exactly were the Stray Cats to the 50s? Were they even born that decade?

just wait till you hear it two or three times a day. it could easily get the most obnoxiously annoying song award. i actually had to turn off RP for the first time as soon as i heard the opening riff.

Green Day is to the 80's what Stray Cats were to the 50's, just nowhere near as good.
I am afraid that I have to agreed. There are some good songs like this one, but overall the music is somehow borderline mediocre

at the beginning of this song, i thought they were going to do a bad cover of the Kink's Picture Book. same riff. i'm glad it wasn't.

I've been wondering if RP would ever play something from this genre. ANYTHING by Green Day is alright by me. I love it.
one of the local PBS shows in LA used to use this guitar riff for their interstitials and promotions, and i had no idea it came from a Greenday song -- of course, now I can't hear this without imagining Val Savala's voice-over...
it used to be that everytime I would hear this song I would get stressed - because it made me realizeI didn't pay gas & electric for two months. thank god for my wife.
"Nimrod" is one of my favourite albums and hugely under-rated - all killer, no filler.
I haven't heard their "early" stuff in a while. I was just thinking the other day that their new stuff is just more of the same, but hearing this, it's actually quite a bit different. Evolved would be a good term.
My 12 year old son is liking this song! So Am I
They're sure to get a lot of slagging here, but they put out some great straight-ahead tunes. "This has no place on RP." Just had to get that in there!
