Is No It Isn't the best song written by any of the band members since the 2004 breakup?

yes, like him, it's the curse of being an ear musician. sometimes it gets in the way of enjoying the music tbh. i'll hear a tune and go okay that's seven other songs.

I’m the same way lol.

come on guys, that chord progression has been used tons of times. cant call dibs on that.

but i do like the idea that when i wanna hear social distortion and eiffel 65 i just have to put on darkside and blame it on my youth.

Eiffel 65 😂😂😂 god damnit you kill me lol

i realize that it's not the proper distinction, but i count every chord run as a separate "progression" based on where it starts. they are different "patterns" to me if that makes sense.

disclaimer: i have taken no theory, and have not read sheet music in like thirty-five years.

I think it's also the same one as El Lay by NOFX

All due respect,i love you lot, but wtf are you guys talking about?

I learned playing guitar from a literal ear musician (= Gypsy )and they don't have all these different ways of saying chord progression.

twentytwenty knows what he's talking about.

similar. that's a stair step kind of thing. or descending, depending if you start low or high. again, i have all my own silly names and visuals for all these patterns. in the case of "el lay" it's A-F-C-G. if played in the same key, the third chord would be a high one. in "darkside" the E is low.

I doubt I’d even remember No It Isn’t if it wasn’t for the blatant lyrical references. I like the song, but Tom, and especially blink, have written many songs better than that one.

Agreed. It's not even the best song on the +44 album.  I love every track on that album, but I wouldn't even put No It Isn't in the top 5 on that album.

List some songs rather than making a vague counterpoint. 

I think this thread should indicate that it's less about how great No It Isn't is, and more about how lackluster their content has been overall post-reunion compared to their prime material.

What.

I mean it kind of stifles any discussion if your answer is just “no” without any basis behind it, but you do you.

Maybe you should have asked people to list songs that are better than No It Isn’t if that’s what you were expecting?

I never understood why they got Carol to sing Make You Smile but they didn’t have her sing backup on No It Isn’t like she did in the demo version. That sounded so good.

I think because she went off to start a family and only did the demo of No it isn’t , the final version had extra verse chorus on the end which she didn’t sing so might’ve sounded janky just having her sing part of the song 

 

not sure tho just an idea
