This is a great song.
It took me a lot to get into Riot Act (idk why, its a great album), but this was always a fave.

I've never understood the overly negative opinion of this song.

I like it every time I hear it. Just don't expect too much from it.

There's a smugness to it which takes away from what might otherwise be a fun little song (some nice vocal melodies). that G-R-E-E-D bit is horrendous. Its absence would help immensely.

like the song, but always feel let down by the lyrics in the chorus.

These last two posts combined get to the heart of it. Smug and reductionist in the verse, it hits the next section with the (inexplicable) announcement that "I guess there's nothing wrong with what you say..."

What? No you don't! You don't guess that at all. "You're wrong" was the entire message point you started from. Also, after a harmlessly pleasant musical start, it delivers very little payoff in the second half.

It and Ghost were, and continue to be, two of my favorites from RA.

There is some definite smugness to the song. It's weird, I give Ed a pass for it, but like Scott Weiland (RIP), I was always like "what a douche".

Ghost is an amazing song, another early favorite of mine actually. These were the 2 songs I really enjoyed and felt that didn't get enough recognition.

I like GD...specially live since 05 i guess...i love the bass lines, and feels like this pop punk song that kinda reminds me of the buzzcocks meets Bad Religion...Thats a phase i would like them to return.
