"Nihilism" is maybe my favorite Rancid song.

Right after that stuff Tim Armstrong did with Pink, natch.

I always really liked this one too:

I like their 90s output, but their albums are too long.

My favourite songs are Olympia, Hooligans and Roots, Radicals.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

God help me, I have the same opinion. I like my pop/rock albums around the 40 minute mark... even if you have a solid collection of songs, my interest starts wavering. I feel the same way about Generation Terrorists.

I actually agree too (although I like their 2000s work as well). I usually just listen to half an album at a time, it works out pretty well.

I appreciate the existence of Rancid, but I rarely feel the need to listen to them for more than about 20 minutes.

Yup Yup.
I used to own all of their albums, but have now whittled it down to Life Won't Wait...which I never listen to.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)

I used to like Life Won't Wait the most out of their albums, but with the passage of time I think I've come to regard it as their second weakest album (Indestructible is probably a bit weaker, although they're actually pretty similar in style). I appreciate the diversity, but Rancid is really at their best when they fuse Street Punk with the kind of pop-punk hooks they can churn out seemingly effortlessly. When they branch out to ska-core and reggae, I think they start meandering too much.

This seems familiar somehow.
