Green Day Preview First ‘Dos’ Track ‘Lazy Bones’
"I'm too tired to be bored / I'm too bored to be tired"
Green Day’s productivity belies their decades-old no-motivation lyrical themes. ¡Uno!, the first album in the pop-punk veterans’ planned 2012-2013 trilogy, only just came out this week, but new material from November 13 follow-up ¡Dos! has already surfaced online. As fan site Green Day Authority points out (via Consequence of Sound), Green Day’s version of the “Angry Birds” video game now includes a snippet of a straightforwardly new-wavey ¡Dos! tune titled “Lazy Bones.” Despite all the activity, that “Longview” slacker vibe remains: “I’m too tired to be bored / I’m too bored to be tired,” begins Billie Joe Armstrong. Maybe the currently rehabbing rocker wrote that one during tapings for his stint on The Voice.
