But when you hear the bridge to “Say It Aint So” that’s just what pop music’s all about. The “Green Album” was the first record I ever owned that was mine and actually belonged to me and me only. I remember watching it sitting alone on my shelf and being immeasurably proud. Half hour long, hook after hook after hook. Wicked.
Not to mention making me feel ok to be nerdy. God that sounds corny, but it's mostly true. Geek chic. If it weren’t for Rivers Cuomo and co I’d probably be a "captain of the team" jock quarterback with a convertible and a hot girlfriend. Which actually sounds quite appealing. But that’s not the point.
