Those reasons suck, you just failed to pick up the musical genius in it, as you probably have in most of the music if you are basing your reasons for not liking a song on it's length, or how much time you think they may have spent on it. Song has hilarious jokes and punchlines, but what really makes it great are Steve's jamming bass lines and Jim's whammy bar solo's. Love Al's keyboard sound too, all in all it is an amazing track and you should be ashamed to call yourself a fan! :boot:

I agree with "She Was A Mime" it's his 2nd worst song in my opinion


I consider these his best in terms of quality: Smells Like Nirvana, Albuquerque, Amish Paradise, Yoda, The Saga Begins, White & Nerdy, Like A Surgeon, Tacky, it's All About The Pentiums, One More Minute.

Worst: Addict Jam, She Was A Mime, That Boy Could Dance, Girls Just Want To Have Lunch, Stuck In A Closet With Hanna White, I'm So Sick of You. Talk Soup, If That Isn't Love, Be Mellow When i'm Dead.

Stuck In A Closet With Vanna White, I'm So Sick Of You and I'll Be Mellow When I'm Dead are some of my favorite cuts, I really don't think I can like someone who does not like these songs, it's complete insanity!

It's not insanity, but it is one big pain in the neck X*
