Riff: Green Day – “Lazy Bones”

Nov 13, 2012

And the silence is so deafening/It’s like picking at a sore

from Lazy Bones lyrics by Green Day

The first pseudo thematic break from the lame noir of the first quarter of ¡Dos! marries handclaps with a few Strokes-y bridges and some of the boredom from GD’s “Longview” days. Except now their mind-numbing laziness is sullied in some deeper life happenings than pot and unemployment.
