Riff: Green Day – “Wow! That’s Loud”

Nov 13, 2012

You’re such a beautiful mess tonight/Wow that dirty dress is so loud

from Wow! That's Loud lyrics by Green Day

When did Green Day turn into a sloppy-clown version of Van Halen? There are many speedster power-chord throwaways on ¡Dos!, but this one takes the cake, making the case for a re-edited double album veiled behind a tune about dirty dresses. Considering ¡Tre! will redeem their gnar.
