  • Overall, I’d say Brain Stew has a slightly more unique and creative tone than the average Green Day song and I’d recommend listening to it, although it’ll probably sound better if you play this song and Jaded back to back as I’ve said

      Brain Stew is a song by Green Day which appears on their album Insomniac. The song starts off with a guitar rhythm by Armstrong which comes in and out of the track with rests in between each set of power-chords.

      Armstrong then comes in with the vocals of this track and sings in a tone that isn’t exactly melodic but at the same time he doesn’t have too much edge in his voice, although he rarely has this to be honest.

      The drums and bass enter the song around


      forty seconds which makes the rhythm feel heavier and adds a very sleepy sound to the track to be honest.

      I don’t mean to say this in a bad way, in fact this is what Green Day were clearly going for as the track deals with the lyrical topic of insomnia and the lazy music sort of gives this very tired and sleepy impression in my impression.

      You’ll notice that the song is extremely slower than the average Green Day song and the lyrical topic would explain why.

      Nevertheless,


      • the vocal melody is catchy and I’m glad Green Day decided to take a somewhat different approach with this track rather than approach it with the fast tempo power-chord based music which they typically put out.

        I should also mention that this is basically half of a song, the tracks Brain Stew and Jaded are meant to be listened to back to back, as they appear on the record, as Brain Stew offers the sleepier sounding track while Jaded is the song which picks up in tempo to an

        extreme extent and takes on far more of an energetic feel.

        The outro of this song is simple yet it has a nice sleepy quality to it and leads directly into Jaded with an excellent transition, if you were to listen to the two songs back to back.

        Overall, I’d say Brain Stew has a slightly more unique and creative tone than the average Green Day song and I’d recommend listening to it, although it’ll probably sound better if you play this song and Jaded back to back as I’ve said.
