So today I got bored and recorded some bass covers. I've done a few songs from Dookie, and I might move onto Insomniac next. I used the RockBand multitracks with the bass muted, and recorded my own versions. See what you think! I might share more sometime soon.

Longview was one of the first songs I learnt, and I don't even play bass.

Why does everyone here have such disdain for "Longview"?!  :sorry:  I'm not turning into DookieLukie, I just can't understand why.

No, but seriously. Great bassline obviously, but not a great song. I love the little noodly guitar riff at the very end, but other than that it's below average. The vocal melody is really jarring, the chorus has a weird beat that doesn't really work, and it totally kills the momentum of Dookie given its place in the running order. And it's overplayed. And the lyrics don't appeal, at all.

To each his/her own, I guess. *opens iTunes and plays "Longview"* :P

I like how you've used a foodstuff as an adjective there. I personally am a big fan of the cauliflowery intro to Nice Guys Finish Last.

I can't say I'm a fan. I find the vinegary outro of BOBD more entertaining.

What about the milky solo on Restless Heart Syndrome?

But you can't beat the chocolatey vocals on 80.

"She" looks weird. Did you record the audio and video separately?

Yeah, I recorded the audio in Pro Tools and the video in iMovie, then had to sync them up manually. They're all a bit out if you look closely, it's just more obvious with She because it's so fast.
