everyone can hate dos! as much they want. this song is still great.
Definitely agreed. I loved Stop When the Red Lights and this, and Lazy Bones was a solid third. Everything else was forgettable or simply awful.

This song reminds me a lot of Blood Sex and Booze, though. Which isn't a bad thing.

Dos has 2 songs I like but after that the bulk if it is much better than UNO. UNO was classic green day but it felt like the same old stuff and nothing new. Dos sounds fresh and sounds like the logical follow up to 21CB. That being said "Nightlife" is one of the worst songs I have listen to this year.
Agreed, Nightlife is brutal. It completely throws off the album. I'm trying to figure out why they included it.

They saw what a polarizing song Kill the DJ is (I am on the "Pro" side), and thought, "How can we make this worse and more boring?"

Also, I just actually watched the video. Not bad, better than most of their recent videos. And while I know a video is essentially an ad for the song / album, showing the album covers in the video struck me as really awkward and off-putting.

Haha I actually learned to like "Kill the DJ". Seriously though, outside of intentional sabotage, it doesn't belong there.

What was worse, wasn't this the second song leaked off !Dos!? We got the awesome Stray Heart, they got some momentum with me, thinking this could be a comeback from !Uno!, then BAM - here's the next upcoming song!

Yeah, it was definitely the second or third leaked. Every other song, including the intro, off of "Dos" is better than Nightlife. So their marketing logic is befuddling. Maybe releasing a cruddy single is the new punk, who knows?

I don't get this really. I think this song is terrible. I think it's by far the worst Green Day album.
What's not to like about this song? The bass line kicks, it's got a 50's throwback vibe, Billie's voice sounds good, and it's fun enough to move to. I literally cannot understand what you could hate so much about it.

totally sounds like Blood Sex and Booze, good catch. more anthemic tho.

i also really like Amy until his voice turns to shit. well written song regardless.

Here's my theory. When most bands record an album they record a bunch of songs. Then they select the best ones and refine them. Green Day said screw it. Let's release em all. Is that cool? I think so because you get some songs that you might like that would have been cut. On they other hand, you get some not so great songs. There's probably a great 12 song album between all three albums, but you gotta find it yourself.

So far they've written like six good songs and six songs good enough to be filler.
