You are indisputably correct. Just a fantastic four-and-a-half minutes.

Oh aye. Most peeps seem to prefer the live version, I've always like the studio version better, dunno why. But yeah - such a perfect lil song. (one of my bands used to play that tune, and always got peeps going).
EDIT: and I made our singer sing "...got my Clash records on", instead of, ya know... :mrgreen:

Haha, nice touch. Though KISS are a perfectly reasonable proposition.

Oh I know, the lyric's perfect as is. We were just trying to be cool (or I was).

I do like the studio version. Punkier.

I actually thought it was tighter, tauter, or something. The 'Live at Budakahn' album was huge here in the States and "Surrender" and "I Want You to Want Me" got tons of play on KQRS-FM, the "classic rock" station here, probably still do. But I always thought the engineering/sound of the album was too weak for how the band was putting out. It's still considered one of the great live albums, I reckon.

They try way too hard to be punk. Great tune though.

Billie Joe is genuinely capable of being a great frontman but his way of getting into the zone, the outside yourself shaman wipeout of a true musician, is pure derivative performativeness from a Bad Religion tape.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

When you have a one song setlist and don't have to worry about energy conservation. Yeah, the little bit at the end was a bit much, but otherwise that was fun.

I enjoy this intro from around that same time:

It's also a bit much, but the way he just cuts right into the verse is fun.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
