  • Musicradar.com asked frontman Rivers Cuomo what he considers to be his best guitar solo on Raditude. He replied: "I don't do any of the solos. If I had to pick a great solo, however, it would be on the song 'Tripping Down The Freeway.' I sort of sketched out the idea for the solo and Pat Wilson played it."
