Yeah, I liked it but dislike Tim's vocals and it's almost all I can hear.

That was a nice little surprise. It's very catchy and I like it, though I wish Billie's part was longer because I absolutely love his voice in this one.

You're right, it's got a festive feel :lol: 

It is quite simple but the point is raising money for Gilman anyway, plus it's catchy. I like it! Needs moar solo Billie though obviously.

Personally, I'd like to see an album come out of this. I love the sound, and it's been too long since we've had a side project. (2008). Or, well I guess technically foreverly, so 2013 - 2014 ish?

Agreed.  I like the music and Billie's voice, but I kept trying to tune out Tim's voice to hear Billie behind him.

I was more excited about hearing the song than actually hearing the song.  Must be Tim's voice when I had more expectations of Billie's.  Oh well.

Out of curiosity, all those that dislike Tim's voice here: Do you like Rancid's music, or do you just not like him in this song?

Not a Rancid fan, so.... it's just an OK song for me.

Not a Rancid fan.  Nothing against them personally, I respect them for what they do and their relationship with Green Day, but just not my thing musically.

Probably. When I asked Corbett he just straight up told me the answer.

I'm a Rancid fan. I'm a Green Day fan. I was excited about this. I'm disappointed. It's a weak effort. Not horrible, just forgettable and how many times can they sing "If there was ever a time" in under three minutes? It has to win a medal for repetitive lyrics.

Honestly I wish it was just Billie singing because even listening to Knowledge I can't stand Tim's voice at all
otherwise I like it

I love both Billie's and Tim's vocals but they just don't cope well together in this particular song.

When Billie sings his verse - it's like an element from another song. No integrity, unfortunately, although a catchy nice and simple song.

I love it, to me this is totally epic! I have loved Rancid and Green Day for 22 years, and them doing music together is a dream come true!! Wish they would make an entire album and a tour!

Same here, haha, wonder how many times he's had that. I just meant whether it was expected to be common knowledge. Maybe it is amongst Rancid/Tim fans, oh well.

It obviously wasn't meant to be a masterclass in songwriting. They surely had some fun playing together and it's attention drawn to a good cause. Anyway how about some Joey (and Rey) love :happyhands:
