Makeout Party

Songfacts®:

  • This throwaway garage rocker is a track from ¡Dos!, the second in a trilogy of albums by Green Day. Bassist Mike Drint described the LP to Guitar Center as "more garage rock - a little dirtier, like you're in the middle of the party" feel to it."
  • Drint told MTV News regarding ¡Dos!: "It's more of a fun atmosphere with these next records, going into more of a party thing, almost kind of a 'hell party.' We have one song called 'Makeout Party,' which the events actually occurred."
