Billie Joe Armstrong wrote this about "fake" people, like those in Hollywood. The lyrics, "All dressed up, red-blooded mannequin" show his feelings about them putting up a front and being "plastic."

After the bridge, right before Billie Joe starts singing, "I see you..." you can hear someone cough. It's probably Billie because he sounds out of breath when he starts singing again.
Phoebe from Belchertown, MaGreat ending to nimrod. :) The bridge is fantastic.
Jessie from Coffee County, TnOh my God this is a great song. It's so hilarious. I think the best line in the whole song is all dressed up, red-blooded amannequin. It's one of the best on the nimrod cd. And King for a day.

Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
