"There you go. Even worse. Okay, well, you know, continue. Listen, Noah, for our purposes, close enough. I can play an economist on TV better than Ben Stein king. If you play an economist on substack, so that seems good enough for me. All right, mister mister economist on TV, let's get the hardest question out of the way that the one that made us want to talk to you, but I've been talking about for two weeks. Are we in a recession? Yes or no, but then I have follow-ups. Well, I mean, recession, there's basically three definitions. There's does the NBER say we're in a recession and the answer is no. There's have we had two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth, which is sort of the folk definition, which the answer is maybe. We'll see when the revisions come out. And the third question is, are we producing at below trend level of GDP, which is probably yes, a little bit. So the answer is maybe we might be in a recession depending on how you want to define it, but we're not in the kind of downturn that really people associate with the word recession. They think of the Great Recession of 2008 and 9. They think of other downturns like the downturn in the early 90s and these big painful things that put a lot of people out of work. And so far, nothing like that is happening. And it may happen, but it's not happening yet. I'm going to reference pieces that you've written all night long, but I thought that was interesting, your piece on, are we in a recession, is the trendline, which is to say that when you're in a really nasty recession, lines go down, all the lines go down. And that's sort of what is perplexing folks like me right now is not all the lines are going down. And so, but what you're saying is that if you look, if you define a recession as an economy is generally going this way, the trend is going this way. And then it's not quite going in the direction that it was, but it's still going up, that could be a form of recession, is that what you're saying? I'm saying what I'm saying is that the term recession is there's no official government definition of that term. And there is, and there's no, there's no alpha. As they say, in knowing whether we're in a recession or not. The word, when there's a big painful downturn of the kind that we really care about, you'll

David Gergen on Running the Nixon Speech Writing Team

"You know, when you came back, when you came back in the speech writing process when I was a young lawyer, it was staffed around. I remember the chief justice of the United States at that time in associate council, arguing with Peggy noonan. That was a murderous row of speechwriters over which we had Bill sapphire and Ray Price and Pat Buchanan. And Nixon. Yeah, and then John McLaughlin came in for a lead in the game with Nixon, but he was around for a while. Ben Stein. It was a terrific group. It was about 50 people. If you look at speechwriting and their sports staff and then the research staff and then we also headed the letters and so correspondent section. So it was about 50 people there. And I ran that for a while.

Victor Davis Hanson Predicts 'Borderlash'

"With what I was discussing before the break about how the Democrats are hemorrhaging minority voters out of their party, and Biden is trying to stop the exodus. It's not going to happen. Victor Davis Hanson has a piece I have in my newsletter today, which is excellent. It's called Optimism Inc We could use a little bit of that the crushing weight of lies. The beginning of the peace talks about how the Democrats are running out of ways to try to defend Joe Biden's lunacy. Actual lunacy like he's losing his mind and is attached on his cognitive abilities, But his policy lunacy to But the second parts interesting as well. Talks about how the these optimistic about the future of the country because the Democrats have taken way too many bites out of the crazy Apple. He says. One of the things that's going to happen is these are his words on mine, he says. Border Lash He says an open border may take years to will take years to fix will suffer a trillion dollars and entitlement costs, legal education, food, housing and transportation assistance to accommodate the 8 to 10 million. During this administration will cross illegally into the United States may be like, well, where's the good news? He goes on, he says, but an open border cannot be hidden by this media forever. The consequences of allowing those in whose first act is to break US law. And second is to reside illegally in the US and third is to fabricate identification to perpetuate their illegal residents. It will force Americans finally closed the border. Victor Davis Hanson is a brilliant guy. I don't know if I'm as optimistic is that But folks remember Ben Stein's golden role.

"You had to quantify ready to go. I do have a quantify this album. I think you said earlier. How they're like you. Were kind of putting this in the context of you know they have like there there. Three this is the band that gave us dookie. They gave us nimrod plonk amazing. Amazing seminal pop punk albums and i can't overlook the fact that same band also gave us this so i think in that context like the also. The fact that this was made for the nhl is just so disingenuous overall. Just a. it's it's a horrible horribly prettiest. Horribly derivative album clap tracks the we will lose it all of it. I think it all but that being said it's it's not as bad. I got to honor the scale of like you know the other albums that have been done on this show. So i don't think i can go any lower than like negative two point five inch checkerboard. Response man. I liked the quantify. Appreciate that even though. They're not a skop in but forget checkerboard. Response is not is not transcendent. I don't know. I don't know if mike dumb would have rocked. Checkerboard wristband new checkerboard. Checkerboard is easier to say red blue. That one oh. God i'm remember. I'm remembering that now. The leather respond with pyramid spikes. I can i think that's good. The hot topic fucking belt. That's like slung. Not through a belt loop anywhere but this is not even hot topic anymore. This topic is they're they're full on. Tj max i can literally smell those wristbands again. You just brought you go to enough shows with start smelling really bad. I had i had. Yeah oh i did anyway. Checkerboard response. Fine though it's not as like some of the stuff that that you guys have reviewed is just like so offensive. And so awful. I don't think. I don't think it reaches that level of awful look negative. It sort of does. I think it's in the ballpark with some of the worst that we've done i mean i think if i'm gonna give it points for anything you know there's that one track that sort of sounds like a track from nimrod there's that one track that maybe you could throw on warning but that leaves eight tracks of like Garage rock revival revival full of mulinuu whoops and like the worst production of their entire career. It's bad it says nothing and again. It's literally like made for hockey games. And you gotta talk that even if it's even if short even if it's not that bad You know in terms of sheer like annoyingness compared to some of the other stuff. We've done like the fact that it's like made as a commercial product to be played. You know hockey games in the league. That really has a lot of problems with with racism and fucking like locker room bullying and shit anyway. I dunno i can't in good conscience give. This is good a score as a negative. Two point five i will not you know. It is really nice. That twenty six minutes long. That's very very kind of them to do that. So i will give them a little bit of leeway here but i'm still going to give it a negative for checkerboard wrist bands. Wow absolutely literally fucking took the words right out of my mouth absolutely one hundred percent. Negative for And i think it is again. I'll always argue this like it is fair to judge a band more harshly when you know what they're capable of and when especially when that band is so personal to you as an individual enduring the most critical period of like your development in your adolescence at least that you're conscious of as an adult you know this this you know crucial time. It meant so much to me And for it to have fallen for band have fallen so far It really offends me like on a deeper level and makes it even more awful. And the only credit i'll give it is similarly the brevity and you know a song and a half that i was like. Yeah i could listen to that. Maybe one more time so yeah. Negative four for me worship other albums that have gotten negative for going to pull the spreadsheet up. I was gonna say probably. Gratitude is in a similar ballpark right. Let's see heather. Gave methods of mayhem. Negative for i gave miley cyrus and her dead pets and negative for heather. An i both gave hinder extreme behavior. Negative for yeah. This level creates in clay. Yeah really bad as creed. Yes because i never cared about creed i never hold creed and high esteem. So they didn't have anywhere to fall for me. You know like this is serious. This is serious. I have not taken green day seriously for very long time. I yeah. I guess that's the difference here. I think i think of green bay being this like the. That's a sad thing. Is that i. You know after you know loving dookie like this is what i think of as green day i i can can expect this of them and i i kind of thought this is what it would be. I think it's different. Because i think that what green day has been doing for a long time is making really like maudlin and melodramatic music. That still sort of sounds like it's like a a a way to self serious version of green day. This sounds like a completely different band. Yeah it's really offensive. It's an affront on many levels. And luckily i did have a an absolute blast discussing it with you van. So thank you for being on the show. Thank you for having me back. I love it. I love being on. Make it stop. Hell yeah hell.

"Now very bad now known this is. This is the most black keys song. Yeah yeah which again has have not been relevant for at least like eight years. If you're you're right you're going to bite a style. It might as well be the imagine dragons song like. Why would you do this. Why would you do this. Yeah no one is like pining for like black keys style songs in twenty twenty one. It's so weird. It's so disconnected hockey fans pining this thing but it is the nhl paradigm that. I've using understand his album. I'll tell you what fits into the paradigm lyrics like these so you can take a walk or you can suck my cock. Take the money and crawl. Oh yeah it's just my adult. That's bad but i don't give a fuck. Take the money and crawl. What an absolute wild man. What a dangerous cool dude you can tell by the seventeen fucking instagram filters you put on his voice that he doesn't give a fuck man you can suck his cock baby fucking. It's so bad so bad. I wonder if you add it up. All the times that billie joe over the course of his songwriting career wrote lyric about not giving a fuck. I wonder would it be more than one hundred. Yeah all the fuck that we not dude. Yeah somebody to protest too much. Yeah i mean that's that's exactly right if you have to keep saying it over and over again like you know. He doesn't give. There's literally your song on american idiot called. I don't care you know like and it goes. I don't care right and they didn't care dude. You need to have a title of hong be. I don't care when you know. Dookie came out because that the listlessness. The boredom with modern life the feelings of like alien nation. The feeling of like you know being on the outside looking in all that stuff was apparent. You didn't have to spell it out. It was just clear it was baked into the chorus it was baked into the songwriting was baked into the guitar. We you know this shit is the most giving a fuck album. Like i've heard in a long time. And i don't know if i'd call this giving a fucking opposite i would say it's the no i mean i'm in in terms of the level of fucking production. That was like that was trying. So i'm not talking about them as walker gave fuck saying i'm talking about the production fucking level to try so hard to pretend to not care that verse. Three songs are one song. I think you're right about that might done that. Like the first three tracks are just they came out of like some noodle session and it's like all right let's just have the burst chorus of the you know input here for these first three songs and all it is. This is not. This is nothing. There's no nothing on this album. i don't think green day. Put any work into this album other than like running it by nhl executives to say. Hey this this works right. They what they said to the nhl executives was do. I dare say please. When i'm on my knees take the money and crawl their cups by the their cut by the puck. Their pucks puck's humus. But i know yeah well. We've shared come full circle here. I don't think we came full circle. I don't think we ever left starting position. Yeah that's a good point. Is this last song. Called gra- graffiti a- scrappy. Tedious gra flooding allies. I thought it was supposed to be the name of a woman. But i think it's the name of a town after the lyrics a rundown. Actually here's here's it's fucked up. The song is about ben. What it's alitalia's brutality. dear lord. yeah it's fun feta. Graffiti is what billie joe is calling south chicago. Oh my god. The problem is graffiti. This fucking song sucks it. Maybe sucks the worst. Because they're the ones where they like. Try to shoehorn a message. Like a very special episode into a fucking song are by far the worst yeah. This one.

"Oh that is awful. It has it does have lived. This lonely road is that song can idiot. No no this is imagine dragons covered your dreams. Yes and then. We added a pomeranian. Akron on american indian. Yes that's boulevard and broken dreams. Yeah it's that song slowed down covered by imagine dragons. Imagine dragons five the fuck with the like piano over jobs and it's about it's so you want you want these. You want these components to like integrate to get like you want them to support one another and you don't wanna hear one component like dominating any other song and then you put you here. It's like it's like put this track. Turn it all the way up. Take other track turning all the way up. No you know what i wanna hear. I don't want to even hear any of these fucking unnecessary components. Get rid of tambourine. Get rid of the pomeranian. Get rid of the fuck just playing puckett fucking punk song. Play rock song who cares. Nobody needs the rest of these fucking bullshit accoutrements and honestly like if you listen to american idiot. They were being really ambitious on that album with their arrangements in the concepts and stuff but they still most of the songs are just guitar bass drums vocals like they were still keeping it. Simple even at their most excessive. I think that's another part of the reason why this is so jarring this album because like green day even when they were at their most commercial like. We're never this. Reliant on production tricks and shit and fucking these lyrics man. My name is nobody. My pride is my pornography kool aids my motto. Oh yeah i wrote that down trying to figure out what that lacking means what pride is my pornography guys. Just totally dead. It's it's word salad. It means nothing. Yeah remember when you fucking remember when you jacked off and wrote the song of a generation about it like now. You can't come until someone's giving you permission. Dude this shit is so cooked. It's so shitty. It's so bad there's no deeper meaning to that that's know king shaming orgasm denial people. I'm kansas just cut it off. You can't come. Geico cannot come and neither can we had. Oh god too much by the river. i think. Yeah those keys are so bad but doorbell ring. They took him straight from the like beginning of The succession theme song. I want it. I hate it. I really hate it. It's so bad i. It's the most imagine dragons e song on the whole album for sure like this is the most. This is the only i think. Part of what's crazy about the album is like how they how anachronistic all of it sounds like. It's all like i don't know if they were trying to sound current but it all sounds really ten years ago but years ago but this is this is this does sound the most current in that sounds exactly like imagine dragons yet but with the fucking boulevard of broken dreams fuck and like backing track and like an cadence and almost like notes note for note. It is no in role tragedy. I think the next one could be me heavens. Fuck and sing these. Also heaven's my rival us. I just spit spit. I like saw the ricochet of fucking slim coming off my fucking face into the computer screen bets annoyed with this shit. Let's let's go to the next one here romo stone. We only got through this shit. we're flying. I'm shocked that we're gently. It's longer than the album. It's definitely been an hour and forty minutes anyway. So that's why just moving it along for fucking us to have two songs left and we're only an hour and a half into it. That's amazing for us. This twenty six minute album. That's what i'm saying exactly so i'm moving. It ran along to take.

"I like this song until you actually look at it and the lyrics and you know and obviously it still relies very heavily on those very dumb overused tropes of the fucking phoned in hand claps and all the other show. We've already talked about. But i can use for. I guess i mean. I don't think they're not necessary in any way. You could just have it fucking punk song but you know do have in my notes and this is investing in the album so i take it back. Yeah it is. It's the best song on the album. It is the most green day and it. You know if. I cross my eyes and like let my brain go fuzzy associated little. I could if you still think teenage teenager is better. I know this sounds like green day. But it's like definitely like a filler track on any green day album. Yeah i still like only two minutes in and it still has all that production. It's a filler track on a green day album as opposed to a fucking imagine dragons album. So i guess we'll give it the chorus is. It's probably the best hook on the album. It is the most classically funk hook and you know. I love me some classic pop punk so sure. It's good it's good. I mean the lyrics are fucking cheesy as hell talking about. Never ever fucking the prom queen. And i'm gonna dance to something wild. I got a feeling and it's dangerous. Like dude you're not convincing me. None of this is dangerous to you. The best line is that i am. The child of this is so bad dude. I can't defend this. I am the child of coyote and ban veto. I'm i'm drinking whisky by the river doing. Yea oh i mean there if you're a fifty if you're a fifty year old man maybe don't be writing songs about fucking prom queens anymore. Yes move on. And that's that's the inherent flaw like pop punk pop punk when you're this because that is a pop punk is about so stop making music. Well i don't know you could do a thing like hard girls or whatever you know like there. There's definitely modern pop punk. That is still like about mature themes but uses that like an theme iq like frantic energy to good use. So i disagree with that. I think it's hard. I think you have to be clever. You have to try but which are all things that the green day is not trying to do on this album. They clever they're not trying It's extremely phoned in but It is possible to make modern pop punk that has lake maturity to it and has like some some weight to it. It's not this and fucking awesome. It's just. I'm i'll of coyote and bandido 'cause he liked gets burritos and he lives in. La eats berea knows that he can say he hangs out with chose and is the child of bendy fucking terrible. It's kata kata okay. Anyway let's go to the next one. This is called junkie is on a high. This was another finalist for worse the year. This is if you listen to the worst of the year you can hear me say let's call an audible and do track one. But this was my original choice for worst worst on the album. Yeah and it's not good so here we go.

And that's that's the line that's why it is really that just says it. I feel like my incredulity is like getting me. To like fucking billie joe falsetto levels here. I'm just like baby infidel in a dirty magazine. What telling dirty lies everybody can see kick it in the head and now i wanna see you dead with a switchblade edge to the chest. Okay it does sound like the yeah approximating like rockabilly leary. Schutte ferdie. it's just a straight up twelve barbosa. I mean it's. It's a little richard and also interchangeably like all of that early early early rock and roll sound but it literally as tutti frutti. Yes it wishes it was. It wishes it was well. According to the genie sanitation it is inspired by tutti fruity which had been previously used in the twenty twelve dose track. Fuck time i'm sorry. I actually find ever listen. Listen dose dose was like their first pass at this style of album. I think i might go back and check out dose.

"I love to hear weezer covered this song. I bet they probably would cover each other on that tour. I bet i liked the song still. They can't help themselves. They put the y. In it's like i if they just left see me like i feel like we all instinctively winced as soon as we heard that part like it's just a necessary. I don't know that it's a good song but it is the first song that is identifiably green day. Where if i heard on the radio i'd say oh that's green day song. Unlike the first four. Which i'd be like is oh it's a it's black. He's got a new singer. It's also probably like what make it stop stockholm syndrome part of the album. Where it's like just anything that's close to good is great. Yeah no it's probably my favorite song in the album for sure. It's it's the only one way like billie jo's voice sounds like billie joe at least on the chorus And like you can kind of you hear the bass like throw holding everything together. It honestly it sounds like they're real people playing real instruments and like he's actually singing you know and that's what i have to look. You know that's what i give credit for now at this fucking green day's nice guitar solo on the song to. Yeah it's a good solo solo. I don't. I don't know that this would fit on dookie but i think maybe you can throw it on warning and it would like this could be the like i. I could see this being a good direction if green needs to keep making music do songs like this and i don't even know if that fits on warning like this is this feels like it could be another direction that they could try. I think if they had a song that sounded like this. We wouldn't be talking about this album. I'll agree with that. But i also wouldn't be excited about it. It's not it's not that now and also you with the title. I was a teenager teenager. You expect it to be poignant you expected to be like a look back on his teenage years with something to say but it's really not it's really just like it's truly just. I used to be a teenager who did drugs and hated school. And it's like yeah. I know you have told us that for years. Give us some fresh perspective. Like what are you now right exactly. And or what have you learned. You know looking back. One hundred teenage teenager right became an adulting adults. Or whatever. also when you're calling yourself you know when i was a teenager teenager full of piss and vinegar. It's quite clear that the you know the baking soda has neutralized that pissing vinegar. D like you. Don't you know there's none of that on this entire album. There's no like nothing is sung with any sort of conviction. There's nothing fresh about it. You know it's all just like the best song. I think is just the rehash of his of his adolescence in. And it still sucks. It's still boring and you know all of that. Piss and vinegar has long since been like auto fossil falsetto out of you and this is you know what's left. I guess is looking back in your life and being like yeah well. I was young once. You know a yikes not great. My life semes- in school is just for suckers living like a prison. You for hey okay. Very weezer good melody. I like it but living like a prisoner for haters. What are you saying that you you know you care too much about vote other people thought of you. I guess just fucking say that like a prisoner for haters stupid. It's awkward it. It doesn't make sense. Then he goes from. I was a teenage teenager to. I am an alien visitor. Yeah i do not deep diabetes lyrics. I guess we the same. I am a martian everything. Six degrees blow away. Can we just talk over. Let's actually look them home. Yes welcome home. Yup getting pardons from donald trump and kwami kilpatrick. Yeah i'm town season to fame and kodak black who's a bad bad rapist man. Also not be sure to. Oh no no i actually. Also we get to issue a retraction from a previous episode where we claimed or we using the information we had available at the time. We deliberated and said that soldier boy was not a piece of shit. Unfortunately he is. He's a bad bad bad bad man and he does rapes to his manager. So fuck soldier boy and fuck la- wayne and fuck green day. I guess that's the three line here at this. Should we go to the next one. We might as well be win the heart. Oh god live said. This song is literally just the diners diving diners drive ins and dives theme song as you as you listen to this song thing. Imagine again. This song belongs on simpson's abs- gonna say. Imagine guy fieri eating chili. Doug you how you in high top down thank you. I should be so lucky guy. Fieri turns out great guy. I'm fully supportive. That man. why someone genuinely no. he does. Gay weddings apparently fake news. It was totally fake news. He has a sister and he does gay weddings. He's i've been wanting to. He loves really great with kids. He raids a ton of money for restaurants during the early days of the pandemic. he's very he highlights like you know a lot of like minority owned businesses. That don't get a lot of attention and puts them on the show and then they are really successful. Good if your guy fieri. He's a good job. A whole hot ones challenge without taking a single sip of water. What a fucking bad ass. Why don't you. Why don't you do a feature. That's like surprise surprise guys. I like that. I wonder if we did if i did the math. Like what percentage of our of the albums we've done had at least one member like do doing sexual assaults like i feel like it's many unfortunately. Yeah it's it's mostly just like assume everyone is terrible and then like maybe they prove you wrong who were the surprise goodguys. We've talked about on this show. No-one green day surprised. Good guys like i feel. They had to be looking into being like donating somebody to rain because they fucking called out for using a gary glitter song. Yeah we're not.

"Arctic monkeys in a huge way. Yeah yeah definitely still still in that space it. Also this is the one i think the most recalls recent weezer yes yes. Exactly yep correct. This is a weezer straight up. Weezer formula cut and paste have some sort of vague like storyline about being a young person in love or whatever and like have it sound like you know the opening song to the. Oc like i. Just i'm hanging with the show low's he says that's also something rivers deal. There's so there's an ad lib fall seto of at the end of every line. We'll talk to you really need to hear you say the word chou low again. Why does everything has to swing. Everything is like slightly do. Uh you're right. It is very But it's it's it's greece fifties music. It's aids hairspray. Wanna insult hairspray. It is it's greece. it's fucking. I i was like. I'm picturing all these songs just like a bunch of kids in their little sauk. Hof uniforms like skipping snapping their fingers down the street like this is. This is what getting back to your roots. Sounds like this is what is pure unadulterated rack. There is maybe as one song in his album. That kind of approaches a green day song. Kind of yeah. I think there's a coup- yes. There's a couple that approach. We haven't gotten to them yet. We'll talk to you but this one's definitely not do the last one. The last one was jockeying for the ford f. One fifty spot. This one is definitely jockeying for the marshalls. Tj maxx back. To school back is everyone is jumping around and their new backpacks. It looks like them literally being like green day like green day as a cover band of themselves. Playing a child's birthday party like that's what it sounds like and that's what the video is pretty much like the whole album is fucking discovery zone vibes like actually. I don't even wanna do discoveries. Even discovery zone was very dirty dirty. It's yeah it's definitely like bought mitzvah fucking shit good album. It's a bad. I'm glad i'm glad you've come around because before you were setting us texts like guys. I kinda like it. I i did. Why didn't i expected it to. I mean the last album. That i was on your like hollywood dead and imagine dragons. Don't think this is as bad as that. I really don't it's better. It's not as good as hollywood. That's true it's not as bad as what i picture. I thought like the new greedy. I thought you you listen to thinking you might like it i. I thought it was going to be way worse than this now. I think it's extremely fucking bad. It's it's it's precisely bad because of the you know again. It's like the weirdness Is i mean that's a little bit more extreme because it was like. They didn't put out any albums. Between you know the early. Like holy trinity and the weirdness and it was like. Why the fuck did you do this at. Sully's your legacy. But this is this is a very like this is a legacy ruining like album. And there's just such a level of expectation when you're such an important and like pop culture history and rock and roll history. And when you're literally in the in the hall of fame and pioneer pop punk like it and now this is what you sound like like. Yeah have to hold that shit. You have to hold people more accountable when you know what they're capable of and yeah. This is a rough rough album. We we all know. The smart play is to stop music after like your fourth album and then just play a full album sets. Riots tore tore once a year. Doing fucking all of your early music and literally. You will never goes out of money to do this. We need to do this. Why are they doing this. There are sad cases like dick dale who like needed to toward the need to tour to support themselves for the rest of their life but like green bay does not need to keep coming out with albums so i will say unfortunately they did need to keep coming out with albums they had. I guess a crazy deal with reprise records. They've been on reprise records since dookie and this album is the final album to complete their contractual require rates jaffrey's records he got any way hem serious. How many albums are they obligated. Well let's see our insomniac nimrod. A mirror warning american idiot. Twenty twenty first century breakdown dose trae revolution radio to father of all motherfuckers. That's eleven albums. That is so since nine hundred ninety four. They've been beholden to reprise. That's why i'm saying. I don't know either australia. Gracefully craft you. But that is that is that is that is mind blowing to me though. That is a big reveal. Yeah so i wonder. What's next. Maybe they will stop. Finally after this please. God just go on the riot fest per mentor. Just fucking do it like. I'm so stoked. I'm so ready i'll fucking lose my shit. I don't think they're quote. I think is probably too high to ever play riot. They are one of the highest payed touring acts like lady gaga money. Going on tour. That is insane to me but they would still make that much money if they just cashed in on the nostalgia and just did you know them and weezer weezer can do blue album fucking pinkerton and green and then fucking you know green day can do nimrod insomniac in dookie and just just do that and fucking do it forever do one album a year and then you know whatever the could right like even if you like you pull a prince right and be like fuck you. I'm stuck in this contract. I'm gonna make a change my name. I'm going to do all this weird shit and like i'm going to be extra experimental with my music or i don't know maybe i'll comment on. You know how this is fucked up or like have some lyrics that reference it or whatever but the now now there's none of that they've given up and i've given up and why don't we move onto the next song which is real quick before we move on. Let's take a little break. Okay yeah let's take a break about that time. And i gotta pee okay. All right everyone. I'm back. I ate a quick taco. I'm feeling well rested and hydrated and talk owed so. Let's listen to this next song. Which despite the terrible title. I think is probably the best one on the album so This is.

And i just wanna is album but the thing is it's the hives run through a filter of like battles and black keys. Cage the elephant. It's still it doesn't. The hives had gritty production. And this has this. Come on while i'm in the middle of like doing the row machine and you know i wouldn't. I wouldn't hate it. Yeah because your your brain addled by all those endorphins like anything because this is exactly the a planet fishes good for this music. Yeah that's really what i want green day to do. I want green day to sound good at planet fitness step. Kelly england for here seems like actually. I think this was the most transparent hockey anthem. Actually if you look at the lyrics you've got the ready aim fire fire. Ready aim a knock your teeth out to the grounds. Kick the dog when the whistle blows like. This is all just hockey. Beat is just like throw this on the loudspeakers barking man. I forgot the name of the Oakland team is there one. I don't know on the loudspeakers when the winnipeg jets get goal the edmonton oilers. Yeah no it's i believe that. Yeah i believe that. When i was looking at like you know some like one stupid like a genius annotation for this entire while a video for are they a hockey rink. Let's find out oh yeah. Nhl official video. There you go here you fucking go dude. Well i was reading the genius lyrics for this one and there's only two things that are annotated and it's those same lines a kick the dog when the whistle blows and apparently. There's a brand called hockey dog that produces pucks. And when the whistle blows players can hate it around the rink literally. A hug is a fucking god. Damnit do branded content barandica content. This fucking sucks dude. We is there a video. I just wanna see if they're on a hockey ring. Oh my god guys gather hockey ring baby. Old pop great okay. It's literally just them in a hockey rink the entire time. Why it look at these old dorks. Why are they wearing wearing dander. He's always wearing the same shirt that i am. He's wearing all the outfits from the like lit my own worst enemy music video literally the same shirt that i'm wearing like the fucking cheetah print lapel guys do have the exact same lapel right now literally at the same lapel. This i can't. It's not. It's not high enough for me ben because of those millennial loops because of the i team busted recorded it twice and just copy pasted across the album. Because they're not even that different from song to song. It's each time every single fucking time and it's so jarring of the which also what is that originally what i'm trying to remember. I was thinking the same exact thing since he heaves in the street. Yeah that's right that's exactly what it is fuck man. It's so jarring to watch this video. And they make the cut the cameras. Let it like for the part that somebody's supposed to be singing. And it's like clearly like they're trying to batch it up with billie jo's like face but there's completely no synchronicity to it whatsoever. There's no way that you could convince me that. That's something that he's singing or like it doesn't. It doesn't even matter. Joe joe is serving blue steel and the entire video. That's the only way his face can move now because of the buttocks loose steel with a hangover man man is fifty years old right and then zamboni comes out baby.

"Bonus so this was. We decided the worst song on the album for the worst of the year list. We kind of did that pretty like last minute but honestly it was last minute but i think it's the right choice presentative song of this album right. Which makes it the worst. Everything bad about the is on display here. The falsetto the weird falsetto. That doesn't sound like billy. Joel's all tracks. Those clap tracks. Those early ipod commercial hand claps man off any art vocals so similar to like what you go woodstock era portugal. Yeah yeah portugal. Which is another big. Bummer of you know a little more sense like hedge on the kind of blake. The darkness style like glam rock imitation in some way. Yeah there's the glam rock mixed in with with all the shit is just the cherry on top. It's all just so derivative though like none of these it's none of these things genuinely it's just it's very everything through a million filters all there's no. There's no dynamics there's no there's no shift from quiet loud or anything. I just loud. Everything's the same volume every instrument every vocal track. It's just in your face. It's in your face rock and roll sweeter songwriters on here bb. No you just saw graders. Songs were all written by the members of the band. No coders on this which i'm surprised by. Actually i almost wonder if that's just a lie. Yeah i think it is somehow a professional song doctor who didn't care about not being credited. I don't know. Mike dreamt taking credit for this. It doesn't matter. I woke up to a message of love choking up on the smoke from above. I'm obsessed with the poisoning us. What a mess. Because there's no in a trust the lyrics across this album were kind of bring me back. Said imagine dragons saba we did were layer just like word salad like scrabble lyrics. Honest i it's like these these clauses like do they make sense like they seem they might wait now nearly would even from above. Its imagine dad punks. I'd imagine dead punks. I don't think they're great or anything. But i do think the lyrics or the the best thing about the which is saying something. I i disagree. I think when. I actually come through the lyrics on the album. After because i've listened to this a bunch of times i've listened to it when it came out hoping it would be good. I listened to it for the worst twenty twenty. And i listen to it again for this. This is the first time. I've really comb through the lyrics. Not expected them to be worse. Listen to it just went right through me like coffee. It was like it's it's quick. It's it's very smooth. It smooth brain music. At first. I thought The money all the stuff about like count your money. Lying in a pile of blood and money was about like acknowledging that they're sort of like doing like a a cash. Grab sellout type thing with this album. That's on howard stern. Billie joe said that. It's actually about having imposter syndrome for having money because you came from such a came from such a broke actor on tv. Feel bad for me by that. My dad was a truck driver by brothers. A plumber by other brother worked as a custodian stuff like that. So it's just very working class background more compared to what it had done it sort of a trip. What a boring fucking like conundrum to have you fucking dolt. What can i hold. All this money would be a mental image of you. Know that seem presume lander. He goes back to his his coal mining town and his father john. You're no son to me get outta here. He's got the black pop it does. The melody does stick in my head. But what i end up doing. What i've been doing is singing lyrics to down by three eleven to that.

"The worst album cover of twenty twenty Yeah it's it's absolutely atrocious. Also like yeah like the punk graffiti like whatever like text. it's fucking awful man. This shit is it's even the parental advisory on it is a skew. That's how punk and cool. They are guy. Well it's an angle shot things up there shaking shit up by fucking calling their stupid album father of all done fucking idiots. I hate these guys. I honestly like it's just like zombie. Simpson's it's like. When do you start to acknowledge that you know allowing shit to go on forever and not critiquing it. Which by the way critics gave this largely pass critics. Were like what was it. Pitchfork gave him a seven point o. Or something like that. What the fuck. Pitchfork gave them a six point seven and to be fair. This has like a think that's about the aggregate. On metacritic critics all reviewers are conducted. This point. yeah. They're all club gives. This is a little bit off off track. But like just like thinking about the difference between like ab club reviewing shows now versus. When they were were doing shows like you know several years ago everything like an a the lowest lowest. They'll give anything is like an eight minus. It is pathetic. What's happened to the club. I was literally just talking about this with live over breakfast. How far the v. club is fallen. How all their talented writers like moved on to bigger and better things ten years ago and now it's just a bunch of lake wet behind the ears fucking dorks who love every every here now like a a music you know. Television journalists media journalists just wants to be a writer. And like you know so. It's it's almost like they. There's around reviewing something honestly because it could harm your chances for success in the creative industry right. Yeah you want to be able to make those connections. Yeah to be able to network so that makes sense. Yeah it is. It is a shame. But i will say this has like a an aggregate of sixty seven out of one hundred on metacritic which technically with their scale equates to generally favorable reviews but it's very hard to fall into the sixty something range on metacritic given. What criticism is these days. I mean this was pretty poorly by lake at least like a third of critics. It's fucking completely fucking toothless. If you can't call the shit what it is then. Yeah i mean. I i don't know i i feel like that it's also this is what happens For bands that are considered to have this like holy venerated spot in. You know music history to where it's just like we'll forgive it because like you know we just don't wanna like they're. They're too big to fail. It's it's the equivalent of big fan control hall of fame right right just desert. It's deserve it though right. I mean they deserve it for for sure. But i'm saying the idea that they can never be criticized again after that is totally bullshit. What they do deserve on this album is to be fucking eviscerated. And i hope we do it. So france gave it strong zero to light one. So at least uh we get into the interac- yeah let's do get on in here. this is. This is the one that we talked about on our worst of the year list. This is a father of all known father. All of you here. Yeah.

I went to that show. I went to that tour owning the rock against rock against bush volume one and volume two the other day. Oh gosh all these bands are. It's all the bands have no affect weren't worked for four years together. You know effects did that whole the war. The war on terrorism album to where they decided back that might organize the whole project or whatever. But you know these. The political ambitions of these these like shitty punk rockers does not hold up. They are not relevant or valid anymore. I learned about boot from an advantage. Already learned about him from rage against the machine. So we point though might gun about You know they they kind of hit this high water mark with american idiot herbals forced to pivot in this in this direction does not suit their sound. So now you have these like really tinny weird like minute like still pretty simple songs but they get more and more overproduced until you get this. Yeah so i think this is. I think they're i mean i know their intention was to sell songs to the nfl. But i think also. Their intention was to try in some way to return to their roots by doing short songs with simple riffs. But i feel like they've been so like away from that for so long that like this is this is the closest they could come to. You know their roots is like as being a fucking hot hot heat cover bands. I don't like just the background of kohl's commercial is terrible dude. It's really awful. And yeah. I mean ben. You were kind of kind to it. You said you you might be nice to for garage. Rock revival like i know reading. I've been reading the maybe in the bathroom buck and like you know so i if only the execution was better if it was like produced better in. I don't hate the idea of green day doing this type of album. It just it did not come together. Well at all i gotta say i understand the desire to return to the noughties a simpler time but i will say there is another um that made our worst of two thousand twenty the new beach slang album and that's truly was like a return to the garage rock revival and that it was in cyprus. It's really it is. There's no way to pull it off anymore. Those days are gone. No it's true. It's just a anachronistic. It's i don't think you can. There's any way to make sincere garage rock anymore right. It's just those feelings. Garage feelings are like they're remnants of a of a bygone era. You know like everything about it. It's just we've been through too much trauma as a human race. Been through too much trauma since you know two thousand five for it to work anymore. I just i. Don't i agree. I agree with you. Yeah so let's hear fucking green day attempt to do just that and i you know or i don't even know what they're attempting to do. I guess sell tickets for hockey games. Which by the way it's twenty twenty. Did you win this album. Come out yeah did you know. Like what part of twenty twenty hockey games was twenty seven. Oh yeah because they were going to go on tour starting in martin. that's right. yeah see the way this was marketed to. We should talk about that real quick. The billboards that said like no trap beats no swedish songwriters. Just one hundred percent pure literature. That's how the album was marketed. We didn't talk about so inseparable. Man it's this is this is this is pure unadulterated rock. According to green day in response to critics accusing green. Day of selling out. Billie joe says you can take. We understand what you mean by that but you can take us out of the punk rock environment but you can't take the punk rock out of us. Yeah it's really punk rock up to buy billboards so that i can fucking convince you that i'm still a rocker. Fucking loser just going to say. Also we should probably mention how the album cover is. I know we. We've touched on twenty twenty but the actual cover itself is a close up of the american idiot album cover except for some reason. The hand holding the grenade is and then. There's a cartoon unicorn that spray painted father of all motherfuckers over it and it's screen day is written. It looks like it's written in like catch up. Yeah very yeah yeah. Lots of ketchup. Fucking a blood from the bleeding heart grenade but it literally looks like ketchup. It looks like a child drew it. I don't even want to to.

"And i remember. I think my mom was like no and my dad went to umass amherst and saw the dookie show but anyway So those songs were naughty and punk and silly and kind of like Blink when eighty two in their early days but like Just a little bit starter like you said a little bit more You know I don't know like these universal like teenage teams. But the point. I was making about eminem. When you like you know put position yourself as an outsider. Your position yourself. As somebody who's like designed to like shock and you know free people out and then you get accepted by mainstream society right like in the like the eight mile or the american idiot then. Then you're celebrated any it's like. Oh wow the t the voice of generation and then you have to continue your career. It's really hard to do that. And these people have failed like it's the same kind of thing and just also kind of like the simpsons right like brunei. We're actually drying parallels also with weezer and like the wizards career and this album kind of has that same missing the mark. vibe as some of these later era weezer albums where you you also don't need to have you don't need to have a career. That spans. three generative shelling stop. And i know this is like a theme of the show. Like just stop you've done enough But like it is kind of similar a similar trajectory in that sense where they kind of. Just keep trying to ship their sound like this is basically like a garage rock revival album in some weird way. I would say this is up in your garage. Rock revival revival revival about exactly. This is some of these songs. There's literally a song that is hate to say out till jews and they have the deck song. Yeah the keys users having guitar solos. Yeah here's all right. So the weezer comparison i think is apps. I mean not even just because they about to go on tour together. Be really the super bowl. Super hyper mega. Hell of a lot of good for them. Good green day and fall out boy. And i was gonna go. I was gonna go see him. But i gotta go to all are over twenty twenty one guys look like we have no we are gonna show. We're staying in here right now. We will go to this show. Do journalists will go in on the inside and wash it off record. Yeah we're going to go fucking get super stoned drunk and have a blast. We're gonna have an amazing time. We're on ironically going to love. It could go on. But so i think yeah so. They're in similar positions. They both sort of blew up around the same time and they've been struggling for relevancy for a similar time. Weezer though i feel like rivers cuomo is driven by this. We're desire to where all these different pop hats and like. Try on different pop hats of like. Oh now i'm going to try to do like you know pop hip hop and now the new shit is like to do like acoustic pop but at all. He doesn't realize that no matter what he does. It's all gonna everything. He does fit into this narrow box. That really only kind of works. If you're doing pop punk and by refusing to do pop punk you know they get middling results. This i think is a little bit more insidious. Because i think green bay knows exactly what they're doing. I don't think they're trying for anything other than to make an album. That will be full of songs. That will be played hockey games. Because they have a partnership with the nhl they get paid by the nhl and they made this album for the nhl. That is my theory. that's what i'm saying. That's why it sounds like this. Well that's why they have that. Gary glitter fuck sample to. Oh my god you've cracked the code. Michael i in a place that was my entire fucking thing when we were talking about this for the worst the year and just talking about it for this episode. I was like who is this for who is four. You know you don't need to do this on any level like is somebody like. Oh money did you lose a bet like what is happening because the record companies are like we need a new green day album that'll shakeup the zuma's to love this fucking early. Two thousands gossip soundtrack. Just be the most highly compressed album. I've heard in forever. It's it's as being compressed compressed compressed. it's like the drums. Don't sound like like droughts at all weird billie joe armstrong is not on this record. That is a fucking. That's that's a disembodied forgiving like corpse. That's been like reanimated just to like you know like shout fucking cage the elephant lyrics into a broken amp like. I don't understand like how the falsetto the him doing that. Yeah it's supposedly supposedly. It's him but you know. I don't hear any green day on this album at all It's such a facimile of its former self. And i think you're right that it is more sinister than you might think. Initially right the the hockey the backup vocals. I don't know why. I think waist high pitch voice a thing. Maybe it is him. That's a really interesting point. Because i was trying to figure this out because this album is twenty six minute minutes which i will say. It's going to factor into the rating the fact that it is so short. Thank god the extremely short. The album overall twenty six minutes long and so like part of me is like well. None of these fucking ideas are fully formed and other songs are real like nobody on. This album is seems committed to it at all. Why even make the album and the album. Why do it. But i guess it's for the nhl. It's all for ad revenue. You know they. I think they got put in a weird position because green day was not really ever a an overtly political band throughout the first decade or so of decade and a half of their career it was. They were banned about being meth out. You know young burnouts. It was all about like gen-x on we. I'm but they felt so pissed off. George w bush and his dang iraq war they. They had they they were like. We're we're going to get political. We're going to do this. And that album was such a success. American idiot the then. They're like okay now. We have to pivot and be like a political band that does like arena rock and anthems and now eventually people soured on that like that. Whole approach was no longer profitable. Let's very ham fisted right. I mean it it ends up being corny after a while like what we notice what you notice re listening to american idiot right like it becomes triclean. It becomes like a cliche of itself right. It's an your no against me right..

We have talked about it on the show before our worst of twenty twenty episode and honestly We did decide that. i guess. Maybe someone inspired by our episode. Recent episode with kierra on the weirdness that you know sometimes you need to take aim at your heroes at your most venerated. You know childhood heroes even if it hurts even if it sucks even if you'd rather just pretend it doesn't exist like the zombie simpson's you know those twenty seasons after the good seasons That i would just like to pretend aren't real. But unfortunately they are and this album is and so we gotta talk about it and with us to to dig in our fellow fellow fellow fellow. Just straight up our fellow our dear dear friend friend of the pod recurring guest and also fellow. Green bay fan. I guess is what i was looking for. You know. Corn corn fed suckling. The teat of Billie joe armstrong. Since his youth. Ben stein is back i am. I don't think so i. I like green day there. I think that i'm necessarily like do not foundational texts for me. That like i know it is for many other votes. But you mean us might. I do love duty. And that's probably the one album other than like warning weirdly that i have like a relationship with. No they're not. They're not like my venerated heroes or anything i would say. You weren't suckling. I was i was. I was never suckling. Just assumed because you because you're like a skop pop punk head. I sumed wrongly that you care about green day. I know green day. And i like green day. They're not there no opportunity for me. They're no they're like they're not like foundational banned in that same way. Sure well for me and heather. They were Yeah i think. I probably talked about it before but it was my first cassette tape ever in third grade was insomniac short dookie shortly thereafter followed them all the way up to american idiot loved every album warning was okay and then sort of eventually started. Just cringing in america hit lost. Its hold on me you okay. September ended for you when were at umass together and american idiot came out and you and i were confounded by it. And you're telling me my brother. Alex loves this album and got it. Like i am respected music taste but for some reason it just i think. That's where some micro generational divide must have happened. Some some cleveland tasr marion. Whatever definitely spoke to a demographic it did it was huge and i. It came out actually my senior year of high school. That's when i got it. That christmas christmas two thousand five. No two thousand christmas two thousand four and i i of liked it. I liked the radio singles. I was excited to get it. I liked holiday. Inn fucking american idiot. Those are kind of classic sound in green day songs. But over time i really the the theater kid aspects of the album just started grading on me and it's like who had in his first polly side class. Yeah and it's like. I don't actually want to listen to ten minute like prog pop punk. You know like opus. Unless chemical romance. I'll listen to the radio singles. But i and boulevard of broken dreams got so overplayed but yeah. My brother's generation the like five years slightly younger than us early nineties. Kids really really sauce like that album really spoke to them. That was their dookie. I feel and you still see teens today. Wearing like american sweatshirts and stuff like that. It's still pretty relevant. When but us so that era of green day you know that was kind of my departure point but the the music they kept making like through twenty twenty first century breakdown and revolution radio and no dose trae easy to ignore but it didn't offend me like this album does like this is such a this one really. It feels so much more wrong than what was leading up to it. What is this dose. Trae i i think this totally just skipped. I have no idea what this is. I was looking at their discography. This morning at night did not know about this. Yeah i mean none of us do for the for exactly the same album. It's an album albums. What the hell realities released at the same time. It missed me. Yeah and for the best. I'll know about who trays. I listened to the first few tracks on and decided that all three albums weren't for me. It's just kind of crazy to me. That i think my biggest takeaway from this experience of this album is just how in listening to dookie again this morning. Which really put this into context. Is these guys. Were kinda clever in the beginning. How did they get less. Clever in less smart over the years it just. It's like the titles of these tracks are so dumb and the league is just so stupid. It's so not clever and they used to be kind of you know around funny. Yeah i mean. They used to be speaking about their experience. It's what we call the eminem effect. I'm just calling it here right. It's like when you make your entire when you stake. Your claim is like an artist on being an outsider. On being kind of fuck up and being you know a weirdo and like having indulging your basest instincts and just like longview. A which is one of my favorite. I mean honestly. Every single song on the album is perfect is a perfect album beginning to end like critical foundational texts of my childhood as well. I was just a little too young to go with my dad to the dookie concert. Like i was literally right on the cusp..

"Here on the hammer, Nigel Show now the coals for unity. You heard a lot about unit Reaching across the aisle from Joe Biden yesterday at the inauguration when he was sworn in, I don't know he believes that I certainly there's members of Congress, the radical progressive members in the house that don't want any part of of unity or accepting or all of branches reaching across the aisle. Are you buying this? What do they really trying to say when you hear the words? Unity. Well, their version of unity is do as we say, and that the tax on the approach they're taking is interesting. Which is they're trying to make Trump supporters feel like, look, you you realize now you made an egregious mistake, and we're not going to shame you and we're not going to hold it against you. And if you're in the Washington crowd, we might give you a job again somewhere. You just gotta come over here and promise you'll never do that ever again. That's the approach they're taking with people, and it will see if it works. I think the vast majority of people know why they voted for Trump. They know who these people are, and it's not gonna work, but that's the approach they're taking. It seems like we had the audio earlier, Nicole Wallace and it's NBC really calling for the exclusion and explosion and punishment of Not only people with that supported Trump and even Congress, lawmakers say they need to be reproved. I'm hearing a reprogrammed more and more like it's a bit like a common thing. Well, it's scary. I talk about this with my dear friend Ben Stein the other night on the very fabulous Ben Stein podcast that I'm has to be a part of every so often. Oh, yeah, It's great. He's phenomenal. You want to talk about feeling stupid. Every time you open your mouth, That's me on a podcast with Ben Stein. But I talk about this. I said guys like us, Nides, we're fine because our job is to talk to people until the FCC comes for us. Our ratings are great. We're gonna be okay and they've been doing they've been trying to e the fairness doctrine for three decades. They will continue in earnest now to come for us. But I'm saying our job is to talk to people are living doesn't exist based on our political views. In many ways, it exists because of our political views. People that you feel bad for and the real Patriots who have to stand firm in all of this are the business owners are the people who work it places where they're getting drowned out by hard core liberal voices. Those are the people that are the Patriots and are the heroes in this because they have to continue to stand firm so that people don't feel ostracized for having the views that they have. One of the one of the things I like about Rob is that he's not afraid to go like down and check out. The scene and exactly what's going.
