"Glorified G" was one that went through a series of changes, and barely held together the whole time. We all knew there were melodies and riffs in it we liked. But even listening to the song right up to the mixing stage I was going, "Does this work at all?!" Here was Mike playing a very up, country guitar line while I'm playing this choppy down riff on the opposite end of the groove spectrum. Meanwhile, Jeff's got this totally other bass line going that's not really steady, and he's going off in a melodic direction, too. So there's not really anybody holding it down, and Dave's got to decide either to play it more the country way or play it the funky way. There was this precarious balance, and then suddenly the bridge comes in from out of the blue, which, if Eddie doesn't sing it just right, sounds sort of foreign. Finally, it never goes back to the chorus at the end, it turns into something else."

Well, I'm aroused.

Is the "country guitar line" the main hook?

I think it's a safe assumption.

"Opposite end of the groove spectrum" really gets me goin'.

Hence the boner.

New sig?

It probably should be, but I drop a bomb like this nearly every single day.

I feel like it's something Shakespeare would've said if he was around today and into the X Games.

Oh fuck, I laughed at that. Hard. But your absolutely right.

I love this song. It reminds me of some of the people described earlier in the thread. It was so frickin' beast when they played this after Grievance in Charlottesville! That first set was so good... This song jams so nicely.. 4 stars.

This song is just great though. ITS SO FUN. The rhythm guitars, the banging drums, its joyous, bouncy, cheeky, playful. Love it.

Dave A is so great on this. He makes this song. Well, him and Ed. EVERYBODY's good on this one.

Maybe because its already at the PERFECT energy level and falls apart when you try to add a speck more or less

This is the worst song on Vs. by a country mile. Probably the worst thing they did through their first 7 albums, actually. I hate this song and its stupid lyrics.

Yea this is a great song. The crack of that snare - oh baby.

Also the guitar interplay is wonderful. Stone's rhythm is fantastic. The song is so punchy and crisp. Ed sounds fantastic.
