It's okay, my 2 year old started trying to sing along to the chorus of Fuck Time so I had to stop playing it around him :lol:

I play that song around my little darling, I just sing "Oh baby, baby it's FUN time," really loudly, so that's what she thinks the words are :lol:

¡Uno! is such a good album. My favorite track is Stay The Night and I'm glad they've given that song so much attention on the tour. That song could have been a big hit if they ever played SNL or David Letterman. But I digress...

 

I agree with Rob Cavallo when he said:

 

"The first five slamming tracks on ¡Uno!--the stomping "Nuclear Family," the yearning "Stay the Night," the fierce yet philosophical "Carpe Diem," the blistering call to arms "Let Yourself Go" and the funky-furious "Kill the DJ"--pack a musical wallop while probing emotionally complex territory. They're five perfectly written, diverse examples of where Green Day is right now. Every time I hear those five songs I just wanna hear them again."

I agree - those first 5 tracks go so well together!

So, is the back cover of Uno Billie Joe or not?   The credits are confusing.  Uno has Billie listed and someone else listed.  Dos just has MIke listed even though it's Lady Cobra on the back.  and Tre doesn't say anything about the photos or credits.

The back cover is Billie but the photo was taken by Theo Stockman from the AI musical. Mike's is just Lady Cobra and Tre's is himself. I'm pretty sure Mike and Tre's photos were taken by Felisha Tolentino, the person who did all the photos for the booklet.

Kill the DJ is the shit both from the first listen's straight-up literal "someone kill this asshole" to the hundredth listen's "fuck the media" figurative feel.

 

I love all of the 'experimental' sounds on the Trilogy. Nightlife, Lady Cobra, Wow! That's Loud, Kill the DJ. I've been saying for years (in a choir among fans and non-) that every Green Day song sounds the same. And I do love that one song...

 

But the Trilogy gives the people what they want: classic Green Day songs like Oh Love or tricky tries we've been looking for like Kill the DJ.

 

Everybody wins.

I keep getting caught up in Carpe Diem which used to be one of my least favorites! It's a total rocker! :D

Sorry if this has been covered already but I was paging through the Uno tab book at the music store a couple weeks ago and noticed that Loss of Control was partly credited to The Pretenders. Whats up with that?

Guys, I just realized that the concept behind Oh Love is basically "yolo"
Carry on.

Since Oh Love is the closing track of Uno is the connecting link between the desire for living (Uno) and the night full of sex, alcohol and danger (Dos).So the person of the "story" reaches himself to extremes like there's no tomorrow.Oh Love is important song for connecting Uno and Dos.

Actually, that is a pretty good line. I don't think you got what it meant.

 

"Your thoughts are so unholy

In the holiest of holes
Onward Christian soldiers
Filled with jive and mind control"

 

Unholy thoughts, in a holy place. The place that is holy is being described as a hole. It's a pretty well written lyric.

It is pretty funny, I'll give you that. Especially when you realise it's clearly a deliberate sex reference, given all of the "sodom and gomorrah" stuff also involved in the song.

I always thought that Kill The DJ could have a more funny video.You know, showing Green Day dancing with ridiculous moves (like Mike Dirnt in the recording of Kill The DJ in the Cuatro). :lol:
