I got a big goddamn kick out of seeing it live a few years ago. I get what you're saying, Stip. There is something about it that's so unapologetic and goofy about it. It's a terrible song but a hard song to hate. But it can't begin to compare to the other songs of its era.

I find it rather easy to hate.

For me, it's just too innocuous to hate. But, fair enough.

Yeah that's true. I really don't care for it either way.

Also, Riot Act is still my all time favorite Pearl Jam album cover.

I used to have that framed picture in my office. It was a cheap frame though and didn't survive the move. I should reframe it.

I just ranked the songs in another thread:

1. All Or None
2. Love Boat Captain
3. I Am Mine
4. Thumbing My Way
5. Can't Keep
6. Save You
7. Cropduster
8. 1/2 Full
9. You Are
10. Arc
11. Green Disease
12. Ghost
13. Get Right
14. Bushleaguer
15. Help, Help

That got me thinking about retracking the album. I can hardly make it through Help, Help. But even songs like Ghost and Green Disease are songs I enjoy. I would say both have greatness in them, but falls a bit short. I do like the b sides though, especially Other Side. I know when it comes to mood and lyrics there may be some complaints, but I'm mostly going for a good sound. Songs that fit together sonically.

1. Get Right
2. Ghost
3. Undone
4. I Am Mine
5. Thumbing My Way
6. Can't Keep
7. Save You
8. Other Side
9. Love Boat Captain
10. You Are
11. Cropduster
12. 1/2 Full
13. Down
14. Green Disease
15. All Or None

Im not sure if its the ¨new¨master or what but Bushleaguer sounds amazing. What a great little tune.

I dont like Riot Act but I do love love love All or None.

Thumbing my Way is my second favorite

Save You, Can't Keep, and Love Boat Captain are all good.

Otherwise I dont like much but I think Get Right would be good on a stronger album

I really thought we turned a collective corner here at RM regarding Help Help. I'm absolutely devastated to see so many people still standing at the station instead of hopping on the train.

Help Help is terrific.
