sucks, what a surprise
why not just make the 11 tracks a new album?
I was going to say they're probably mostly remixes/demos/acoustic/whatever but nope they actually are entirely new songs. what the fuck
Better than most of California not that that is much of a compliment.
we are forgotten young suburbia hahaha
skiba what the hell are you doing
ill give them credit where credit is due that instrumental is tight
Digging: Tim Dog - Penicillin on Wax
don't like the mix, song is as pointless as california.
Digging: Noah Gundersen - White Noise
Big Yellow Taxi much?
that was really bad
skiba please abandon this sinking ship
Yeah I convinced myself California wasn't bad at the time, but honestly these guys trying so hard to recapture their youth just comes across as sad and not genuine to me. This song is weaker to me than most of that album too.
Is it really that bad?
Welcome to the world of yank punk. Completely fucking clueless apart from about 4 bands.
4 is generous zak
This is so bad on sooooo many levels.
Riff seems like a mash of countless other songs of theirs.
Name dropping Chicago and California? What, is it not a blink-182 song now unless they name drop some city/state?
Ending the chorus with "Fuck this place, let's put up a parking lot".......... ahhahahahahahahahhaha really?! Put up a parking lot?
And the added nah nah nahs at the end of the song is just the final nail in the coffin of a song that is at this point a parody of a parody of a band.
It's one of the greatest ironies in music history. Invented the fucking thing but you didn't know what it was until the brits showed you and you've made a hash of it ever since.
Gonna assume it's a purposeful nod to Big Yellow Taxi.
Their self titled should've been their final album
pave (take?) paradise put up a parking lot
that counting crows song is actually catchy though
"Their self titled should've been their final album"
agreed that one sucked
skiba please abandon this sinking ship
hate to say it but skiba is basically the reason why the ship is sinking in the first place
nah neighborhoods was dogshit too. some bands just don't age well.
skiba is a horrible fit for their sound.
why not just make the 11 tracks a new album? 
because these tracks are thematically similar to California, and the label makes more money off hormonal teens and adults who refuse to let their childhood go this way
Digging: Soulwax - Essential
Sorry Satty, but Neighborhoods was aight and shits all over California.
Wasn't that bad. Will never have interest in listening to the song again though. Not even sure I made it all the way through their last shit show album.
It's the most paint by the numbers song they've ever done.
After California, why do y'all subject yourselves to this kind of torture?
this better not be a mineral cover
Digging: LOFT - and departt from mono games
nah dw it's a counting crows cover
if this isn't about railing some fat bird in a car park I'll be disappointed
so the deluxe edition will have 27 tracks
The worst part about it is the "na-na-na" part. It's just two notes.
Every song they have has a na-na part though
Well this song is a complete mess. No sense of composition.
If anyone can make it through all 27 tracks they deserve a medal and a copy of Stay What You Are signed by the favorite STD lineup delivered to their doorstep/deathbed
Digging: Alexander Mosolov - Iron Foundry; Piano Concerto No. 1; Legend...
This band just refuses to die it seems. Skiba is still a lot more tolerable than Tom Delonge. It's still bad, but a more palatable flavor of bad.
"why not just make the 11 tracks a new album?"
Lol yeah they could have made a lot more money that way
Not necessarily, a lot of bands brag about whether their records reach gold and platinum status, and even get financial incentives to reach those peaks, and I guarantee the deluxe edition will most likely go towards the overall sales for California.
love the song. sounds like classic blink. way better than most of the tracks on the album proper.
didn't hate this until the unnecessary 'na na na' part after the chorus, but that was enough to make me turn it off.
I hate to be be the guy that says it isn't Blink without Tom, but it really isn't. This band lacks so much energy without him.
Digging: Leeched - To Dull the Blades of Your Abuse
"Yeah I convinced myself California wasn't bad at the time, but honestly these guys trying so hard to recapture their youth just comes across as sad and not genuine to me. This song is weaker to me than most of that album too." 
Why? This is so soulless. No one listen this in 2k17 LUL
Yea this isn't better than anything on Californaia
california definitely has some worse songs than this. I'd take this over she's out of her mind and home is such a lonely place easily, although that doesn't say much
I guess the fact this just seems like their most cliche track in their whole discog really has me drop it to the bottom. This song essentially takes every gimmick from their career and jambles it into one track.
Fuck this band
"I guess the fact this just seems like their most cliche track in their whole discog really has me drop it to the bottom. This song essentially takes every gimmick from their career and jambles it into one track. "
yeah i guess although you could say the same thing about most of california
either way, fuck this song/album/band.
Sounds like they still want to be in high school. You're fucking 45 years old.
Apparently they aren't making this collection of songs a new album because they're contractually obligated to promote "California", but they made 11 new songs. So they pretty much made a deluxe edition of California because it was a loophole in the contract.
It's better than most of California, but the lyrics still suck and the nanana's make me want to blow my brains out. Without that the song's okay, but it's still missing a catchy guitar riff
It's so sad to hear shit like "we are the young forgotten suburbia" coming from skiba. While as the past few trio albums have proven he's been regressing as a lyricist but he's still better than "fuck this place let's put up a parking lot"
My Shame is True was really good. I wish he never joined this band.
Music for 8 year olds
Digging: Djevel - Ormer Til Armer, Maane Til Hode
Gotta say though, if you're gonna re-release your album as a "deluxe edition" this is the way to go about it. Cos a lot of deluxe reissues have like 2 new songs and thats it
Couldn't even finish it
this is about chicago not california
Jon Feldman destroyed this band and turned them into Goldfinger 2.0. And not old good Goldfinger.
