The label came in and said, “I know the bass and drums are basically done with the record, but how about you give us four of five more songs?” And at the time he was saying write four or five more songs, the dude was also saying why don’t you guys re-record Tell All Your Friends so they could make it a double CD? We’re going, “Are you nuts?”
That album has already been completely milked since John and Shawn came back into the fold. I used to love that record but I can't even listen to it anymore since its so… aged. Imagine how bad it would be if they fucking re recorded it? Men in their mid 30's singing High School jams.. LOL.
New Again and Happiness Is are the only records I can listen to still from these guys.
i've always wondered what it would be like if they did re-record the album. same with blink-182's dude ranch. if they were in it for the $$$$ then i guess it can make sense, but they're obviously not and I respect that. love the new album.
It would be interesting to hear the album re-done with a much larger budget, seeing as the original is so rough. That said, it would have completely overshadowed the actual album they were there to record
