Maybe a "back to our roots, but not really" album after seeing the popularity of pop-punk bands like Blink 182.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

I feel that, had he lived, John Lennon would have loved Donkey Kong.

I actually would've found an Unplugged performance cool, given that the Busking tour worked pretty well for them.
Both of these options would be fucking awesome.

There. I said it.

In fact, I really want to hear Clash/PE mashups now.

I blacked out on the floor and went into immediate rigor mortis sometime during the North and South keyboard solo.
In all honesty, after the topsy turvy second half, my brain is pretty much mush by the time I get here. "TIE" - oh this one is alright. "TCT" - really catchy even if it is a terrible bastard. "Fingerpoppin'" - ... "Play to Win" - RAGH! N&S - Hey I kind of like this one. It is too much okay songs to horrid shit songs alternating that LIW just doesn't register.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

This song reminds me of what Nick said, when I first interviewed him all about this stuff...of reaching the point where he hadn't a critical faculty left in his body anymore, 'cause nobody would have listened, anyway. Hearing this train wreck of a song, it's easy to see why he said that. :cool:

Hey, remember when the official Life Is Wild lyrics were printed in that weird booklet? Does anyone have a link to it or do they know the correct lyrics?
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

So random. Would love to get the verse lyrics some day too. I don't think my interpretation was accurate:
You have to reek one I suppose
It's a door in a Cuban pie
