Nathan Newell This rendition of Burnout blew me away. I listened to it on repeat, until I couldn't anymore, so I went through and got a PayPal account and a bandcamp account just so I could buy the album, essentially for Burnout. I love the album, its a great take on all the songs, but Burnout is spectacular! Favorite track: Burnout.

    In November 2015, over 100 artists walked through the doors of the legendary Fantasy Studios and spent over 22 days recording and mixing 14 songs at Fantasy Studios. Yes, the same place that Green Day recorded the original album.

    UnderCover has asked 14 Bay Area Bands to put their own twist on the twisted. The genres have ranged from Arabic Rai to Gospel to Orchestral...with a ton of punk in between.

    UnderCover Presents enables musicians and audiences to deepen bonds with the local artistic scene through collective celebration of a shared cultural touchstone. UnderCover navigates audiences to a diverse range of musicians by reinterpreting an iconic album in its entirety with a different ensemble performing each song in their own style.

    Over the course of UnderCover's 5 years, 10 tributes, and 27,000+ tickets sold; UnderCover has established itself as a well curated, professional, yet incredibly intimate series. The result of UnderCover's uniquely diverse collaboration is a ripple effect. Musicians continue collaborative efforts beyond the shows. Audiences explore genres and artists that they normally wouldn't come across, and continue following them long after their UnderCover appearance.

I declare, I don't care no more I'm burning up and out and growing bored In my smoked out boring room My hair is shagging in my eyes Dragging my feet to hit the street tonight To drive along these shit town lights I'm not growing up, I'm just burning out And I stepped in line to walk amongst the dead Apathy has rained on me And now I'm feeling like a soggy dream So close to drowning, but I don't mind I've lived inside this mental cave Throw my emotions in the grave Hell, who needs them anyway
2.
I'm taking all you down with me Explosives duct taped to my spine Nothing's gonna change my mind I won't listen to anyone's last words There's nothing left for you to say Soon you'll be dead anyway Well no one here is getting out alive This time I've really lost my mind and I don't care So close your eyes And kiss yourself goodbye And think about the times you spent and what they've meant To me it's nothing To me it's nothing To me it's nothing To me it's nothing I'm losing all my happiness The happiness you pinned on me Loneliness still comforts me My anger dwells inside of me I'm taking it all out on you And the shit you put me through Well no one here is getting out alive This time I've really lost my mind and I don't care So close your eyes And kiss yourself goodbye And think about the times you spent and what they've meant To me it's nothing To me it's nothing To me it's nothing To me it's nothing Do you ever think back to another time? Does it bring you so down that you thought you lost your mind? Do you ever want to lead a long trail of destruction And mow down any bullshit that confronts you? Do you ever build up all the small things in your head? To make one problem that adds up to nothing To me it's nothing To me it's nothing To me it's nothing
3.
I don't know you, but I think I hate you You're the reason for my misery Strange how you've become my biggest enemy And I've never even seen your face Well maybe it's just jealousy Mixing up with a violent mind A circumstance that doesn't make much sense Or maybe I'm just dumb You're the cloud hangin' out over my head Hail comes crashing down welting my face Magic man, egocentric plastic man Yet you still got one over on me Well maybe it's just jealousy Mixing up with a violent mind A circumstance that doesn't make much sense Or maybe I'm just dumb, I'm a chump

Sit around and watch the tube, but nothing's on I change the channels for an hour or two Twiddle my thumbs just for a bit I'm sick of all the same old shit In a house with unlocked doors And I'm fucking lazy Bite my lip and close my eyes Take me away to paradise I'm so damn bored I'm going blind And I smell like shit Peel me off this Velcro seat and get me moving I sure as hell can't do it by myself I'm feeling like a dog in heat Barred indoors from the summer street I locked the door to my own cell And I lost the key Bite my lip and close my eyes Take me away to paradise I'm so damn bored I'm going blind And I smell like shit I got no motivation Where is my motivation? No time for the motivation Smoking my inspiration Sit around and watch the phone, but no one's calling Call me pathetic, call me what you will My mother says to get a job But she don't like the one she's got When masturbation's lost its fun You're fucking lonely Bite my lip and close my eyes Take me away to paradise I'm so damn bored I'm going blind And loneliness has to suffice Bite my lip and close my eyes I was slipping away to paradise Some say, "Quit or I'll go blind." But it's just a myth

Dear mother, Can you hear me whining? It's been three whole weeks Since that I have left your home This sudden fear has left me trembling Cause now it seems that I am out here on my own And I'm feeling so alone Pay attention to the cracked streets and the broken homes Some call it the slums Some call it nice I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home Welcome to paradise A gunshot rings out at the station Another urchin snaps and left dead on his own It makes me wonder why I'm still here For some strange reason it's now Feeling like my home And I'm never gonna go Pay attention to the cracked streets and the broken homes Some call it slums Some call it nice I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home Welcome to paradise Dear mother, Can you hear me laughing? It's been six whole months Since that I have left your home It makes me wonder why I'm still here For some strange reason it's now Feeling like my home And I'm never gonna go Pay attention to the cracked streets and the broken homes Some call it the slums Some call it nice I want to take you through a wasteland I like to call my home Welcome to paradise Oh, paradise

I'm all busted up Broken bones and nasty cuts Accidents will happen But this time I can't get up She comes to check on me Making sure I'm on my knees After all she's the one Who put me in this state Is she ultra-violent? Is she disturbed? I better tell her that I love her Before she does it all over again Oh god, she's killing me!!! For now I'll lie around hell, that's all I can really do She takes good care of me Just keep saying my love is true Is she ultra-violent? Is she disturbed? I better tell her that I love her Before she does it all over again Oh god, she's killing me!!! Looking out my window for Someone that's passing by No one knows I'm locked in here All I do is cry For now I'll lie around hell, that's all I can really do She takes good care of me Just keep saying my love is true
7.
Do you have the time To listen to me whine About nothing and everything All at once I am one of those Melodramatic fools Neurotic to the bone No doubt about it Sometimes I give myself the creeps Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me It all keeps adding up I think I'm cracking up Am I just paranoid? Am I just stoned? I went to a shrink To analyze my dreams She says it's lack of sex That's bringing me down I went to a whore He said my life's a bore So quit my whining cause It's bringing her down Sometimes I give myself the creeps Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me It all keeps adding up I think I'm cracking up Am I just paranoid? Uh, yuh, yuh, ya Grasping to control So I better hold on Sometimes I give myself the creeps Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me It all keeps adding up I think I'm cracking up Am I just paranoid? Am I just stoned?

She... She screams in silence A sullen riot penetrating through her mind Waiting for a sign To smash the silence with the brick of self-control [Chorus:] Are you locked up in a world That's been planned out for you? Are you feeling like a social tool without a use? Scream at me until my ears bleed I'm taking heed just for you She... She's figured out All her doubts were someone else's point of view Waking up this time To smash the silence with the brick of self-control [Chorus] EHHHHHH,AHHHHHHHHHH!!! [Chorus]

Roaming 'round your house wasting your time No obligation, just wasting your time So why are you alone wasting your time? When you could be with me wasting your time And I'm a waste like you With nothing else to do May I waste your time, too? Warding off regrets wasting your time Smoking cigarettes wasting your time I'm just a parasite wasting your time Applying myself to wasting your time And I'm a waste like you With nothing else to do May I waste your time, too? So why are you alone wasting your time? When you could be with me wasting your time And I'm a waste like you With nothing else to do May I waste your time, too? May I waste your time, too? May I waste your time, too? May I waste your time, too?

I heard you crying loud, All the way across town You've been searching for that someone, And it's me out on the prowl As you sit around feeling sorry for yourself Well, don't get lonely now And dry your whining eyes I'm just roaming for the moment Sleazin' my back yard so don't get so uptight You been thinking about ditching me No time to search the world around Cause you know where I'll be found When I come around I heard it all before So don't knock down my door I'm a loser and a user so I don't need no accuser To try and slag me down because I know you're right So go do what you like Make sure you do it wise You may find out that your self-doubt means nothing Was ever there You can't go forcing something if it's just Not right No time to search the world around Cause you know where I'll be found When I come around No time to search the world around Cause you know where I'll be found When I come around When I come around When I come around When I come around

Seventeen and strung out on confusion Trapped inside a roll of disillusion I found out what it takes to be a man Now Mom and Dad will never understand Secrets collecting dust but never forget Skeletons come to life in my closet I found out what it takes to be a man Now Mom and Dad will never understand What's happening to me? Seventeen and coming clean for the first time I finally figured out myself for the first time I found out what it takes to be a man Now Mom and Dad will never understand What's happening to me?
12.
I saw my friend the other day and I don't know Exactly just what he became It goes to show It wasn't long ago I was just like you And now I think I'm sick and I wanna go home How have I been, how have you been It's been so long What have you done with all your time And what went wrong I knew you back when And you ... you knew me And now I think I'm sick and I wanna go home Anybody ever say no? Ever tell you that you weren't right? Where did all the little kid go? Did you lose it in a hateful fight? And you know it's true It wasn't long ago I was just like you And now I think you're sick and I wanna go home
13.
All brawn and no brains And all those nice things And you finally got what you want Someone to look good with And light your cigarette Is this what you really want? I figured out what you're all about And I don't think I like what I see so I hope I won't be there in the end if you come around How long will he last Before he's a creep in the past And you're alone once again? Will you pop up again And be my special friend 'Till the end? And when will that be? I figured out what you're all about And I don't think I like what I see I hope I won't be there in the end if you come around I figured out what you're all about And I don't think I like what I see so I hope I won't be there in the end if you come around
14.
Something's on my mind, it's been for quite some time This time I'm on to you So where's the other face? The face I heard before Your head trip's boring me Let's nuke the bridge we torched 2, 000 times before This time we'll blast it all to hell I've had this burning in my guts now for so long My belly's aching now to say Stuck down in a rut of dislogic and smut A side of you well hid When it's all said and done, it's real and it's been fun But was it all real fun? Let's nuke the bridge we torched 2, 000 times before This time we'll blast it all to hell I've had this burning in my guts now for so long My belly's aching now to say You're just a fuck I can't explain it 'cause I think you suck I'm taking pride In telling you to fuck off and die I've had this burning in my guts now for so long My belly's aching now to sing I'm taking pleasure in passing these doubts to you So listen up 'cause you might miss You're just a fuck I can't explain it 'cause I think you suck I'm taking pride In telling you to fuck off and die Good night
15.
I was alone I was all by myself No one was looking I was thinking of you Oh yeah, did I mention I was all by myself All by myself, all by myself All by myself I went to your house But no one was there I went in your room I was all by myself You and me had Such wonderful times When I'm all by myself All by myself
