Is the vinyl of Dos with Drama Queen on it valuable at all?  I saw it and was tempted to pick it up because of that mistake, and the fact t that when I bought Uno on vinyl I won a contest where I won every CD by the band.

For selling online, I'm not sure it'd be any more valuable for having one different track that is on another CD anyway.

I didn't really pick it up because of that, I bought it because I wanted it on vinyl.

My favorite songs from Dos are Lazy Bones, Wild One, Stray Heart, Amy and Wow! That's Loud. I think some of these songs could be on Tre.

Probably no. Lazy Bones would be very nice as a single, though.

Dos should have been more promoted. I mean, Uno has a couple of singles (Oh Love, Kill The DJ and Let Yourself Go) and music videos (Nuclear Family, Stay The Night and more), Tré has one single and 2 music videos (X-Kid and The Forgotten) and Dos only has a single and a music video, both for the same song (Stray Heart).

 

Dos needed another single, Lazy Bones would be the best choice.

Well I'm on the other side of the coin. Ashley is a great song, well thought out, menacing, dark punk rock. Baby Eyes is a little iffy lyrically, but the melody and the guitar riff, and the overall ambience of the song, cause it to be one of my favorites. On an album full of unique tracks they stick out like a sore thumb, but I think overall they're good songs, Ashley being the better of the two.

Stray Heart is a favorite of mine, I love the way Billie Joe sings that song and I love the music behind it. He may not really say anything poignant about infidelity, but after 2 albums filled with sociopolitical opinions, did we really need another? I also enjoy the fact that he sings the song from a different perspective, any other artist would have likely written from the perspective of the person who is cheated on. It's about the experience, not an opinion about it.


This mofo knows what's up.

 Does anyone care to enlighten me otherwise?

 

I mean I can try but.

If you can't feel Stray Heart with the faster music, this guy's cover does a decent job of slowing it down.

I find "everything that I want, I want from you" a reasonably powerful line because I don't really interpret it as a cheap attempt at getting someone the narrator cheated on back, but as longing for someone he can't have. I can see why a lot of people can't relate to these songs like they did with AI or the older stuff about girls, because he is singing about a very different situation, but they do obviously mean something to Billie. I've seen him be on the verge of tears singing Stray Heart and you can hear the emotion in his voice on the Demolicious version.

 

(I know this hasn't been discussed for ages but any chance to talk about one of my favourite songs :P )

Why are people asking why a single from Dos was never released? Stray Heart was a single, released October 15, 2012.

I guess I'm lucky. Live 105 in San Fran always plays Green Day singles when they are released, at least for a little while. I remember hearing Stray Heart being played on that station. Then again, it is their home radio station.

Dos is not my favorite album from the trilogy or out of all the albums at all, but when you pick the album apart, it's really individual and different. I definitely respect trying something new, bit it just didn't work. The only stand out song for menis Stray Heart and I love that song to death

Probably because he was writing about something meaningful - hope we get more of that.

yep. and i love that you can hear it in his voice.

don't get me wrong, i love the weird tunes too - but obviously heart felt and meaningful songs he writes get more attention.

That's how I always interpreted that line. It's one of my favorite songs to sing along too because it's everything I feel about this girl I crushed on big time.
