On Vox: Losing what's left of my dignity

I was listening to what is arguably the best Green Day album, Kerplunk!, a little while earlier, and even after all these years and a million spins, it still really rocks me. I love that album, and the memories that go with it. One awesome song that I'd sort of forgotten about is this one:

I know this stuff doesn't appeal to everyone, but I find this song to be downright pretty. I love the chord and vocal progressions, and the little solo is catchy as hell. It reminds me of a younger and more awkward, and somewhat more endearing Green Day... the days before Billie Joe strutted around on a stage with more square footage than all of my residences combined. When after the show, he would sell you a shirt or a CD personally and thank you for coming to see them.

Not that they don't rock ass now, because they definitely do... They just feel a little less accessible, which is sort of NOT very punk rock.
