It really depends on the songs, but I can agree that acoustic versions have always a different kind of magic in them...

I love this:




Oh, and I think Christie Road is my favourite acoustic song. It's just so amazing :wub:

I actually dislike them playing songs which should have electric guitar and the full drums and bass etc. acoustically. Why can't they just play them properly with distortion? Christie Road, She's a Rebel, Give Me Novocaine, Waiting, Before the Lobotomy, COMING CLEAN - play them with distortion it's so much better. It's fine for them to have their acoustic songs ie. Good Riddance, WMUWSE so long as they are kept acoustic and the distorted songs kept distorted.


Do you even know what acoustic means? Because it doesn't sound like you do.

Distortion and Acoustic are NOT opposites, they are two totally different things. You can have distortion on an acoustic guitar (and it sounds great, by the way).

Also, WMUWSE is not only electric, excluding the intro, but also distorted.

OK I take your point and do know the difference! I mean I would prefer them to play songs more like they are on the album when they are proper 'hardcore' songs like Coming Clean, Burnout etc. Experimentation is OK but for me the originals are always better. Just my opinion

Even though I'm slighty biased towards Whatsername (so much love for that one), I usually really like hearing acoustic versions, cause there is something really interesting in stripping a song from it's studio production and other added effects, and just leave the essence and main instruments. It not only shows what the song is really made of and it's core, but it also shows the handle that the performer/artist has on the song, how they keep the essence of it.

Personally, I love how Billie can make the acoustic sound as powerful as an electric, when he plays it it doesn't sound weak or softy, it still packs a punch.

Can anyone link me to a good quality recording of Whatsername acoustic, if there is one?

I've never thought about it like that before, but that is a good point and I agree.
I love his acoustic sound and that might be just the reason <3 :)

So true! I absolutely love the way he attacks his guitar during the instrumental part of Good Riddance live, it always looks like either the guitar's gonna break or his arm's gonna fall off. Awesome :wub:

It is awesome, but when I hear Good Riddance I fear he's going to end up breaking the strings or that they will come off :lol:

I HATE when bands play songs acoustic. If they weren't originally that way then don't make them acoustic. I'm not much for acoustic songs. I have a couple here and there I like but I don't really like them. I don't really like slow songs either. I want fast songs that I can rock out too. I don't want to hear ANY of their songs acoustic. But that's just me.

1. Do you even know how to respond to a post without being a dick? Because it doesn't sound like you do.

2. Everyone, please stop quoting videos in your replies. It slows down the page load and uses unnecessary bandwidth. For everyone on a broadband connection, you'll probably never notice, but when I loaded this up on a 3G connection earlier today, the page chugged like an absolute beast when it had to load the same videos twice. It's easy to do. Either remove the video URL from your quoted post entirely, or highlight the URL text and click the link button in the editor.

Thanks. :)

Try giving some hugs out. It's therapeutic. Heals you and shit.

Does anybody else wish he would've played something obscure from Insomniac when those acoustic encores were prolific?

Good god, no. I don't see how anything from Insomniac could work at all acoustic. The unplugged version of Geek Stink Breath at Bridge School was interminable enough.

I like that version. :mad: Instrumentally, anyway. Billie doesn't sing it right for an acoustic performance.

He doesn't sing it right for an acoustic performance because there's no way to sing a song like that right for an acoustic performance!
