This is actually my 3rd favourite song on Tre. I remember Billy did say he'd hope to play it live, but it didn't happen anyway.

I always thought the crowd should start chanting the "Yeaaaaahhhhhh yeaaaahhhh" intro part when they are waiting for Green Day to come back out for their encore. Almost force them to play it!

I think that's a difficult thing because is not everybody that likes that song, it would have a lot of others songs in the middle and it would prevail some big hit.

Frankly, I hope they do realise that fans like us do want it played (so hello Green Day, if you ever, ever lurk these boards), and to be honest I don't see why they can't. Missing You was played at Emirates at it looked like nearly the whole place knew it off by heart, so the whole 'album sales' thing is moot in my opinion.

 

Here's hoping it will be played in a future tour. I can see it now, being played in front a massive crowd in NYC. I would pay a fuckload of cash to see that.

Anybody know, throughout Green Day's career, which songs took the longest time before they were included in a setlist?

I feel indifferent about Dirty Rotten in particular, but I wish they'd play more than the same few trilogy songs every show (a couple more from ¡Dos!, particularly). Even Kill the DJ or Sweet 16 would've been cool every now and then, I think. Amy and Drama Queen would've made for nice acoustic songs.

Like is for the spoilered bit. Personally, I'd be thrilled if they decided to drop it and add American Eulogy later in the set.

I really wish they had gone with the title Crushing Bastards. I feel like it all would have tied in better. That, and Crushinf Bastards is a killer name.

Crushing Bastards was the original name for Loss of Control....it's a lyric from that song.

Hi guys, as you all may know, Green Day's 99 Revolutions tour is over, unless of course they have a few more club dates planned. Throughout the tour, they never played Dirty Rotten Bastards, not even once, so I want to hear your opinions. Could it be that Billie Joe found it too long and too fast to play live? (But, they've played Jesus of Suburbia and Homecoming live many times!) Billie Joe even said once that this would be an arena sing along type song! Do you think Mike would be able to pull off that killer bass solo live?

holy fucking shit you're andy the nard dog bernard

They'll get around to playing it eventually, I really don't think it'd be a problem for them. Mike's an absolute badass bassist, and those solos aren't particularly hard. The solo sounds fairly comfortable for Jason, too. Billie always said Letterbomb was his favourite song to play live, but how many years did it take before they started playing it regularly? At the end of the day DRB is just one of many, many songs they need to play live more, so I don't really see why people focus on that one track specifically.
