"Rusty James" as written by and Billie Joe/pritchard Armstrong....
This whiskey sour, amateur hour
Raise your glass and toast your friends
Some day we will fight again, well
Your enemies, your tragedies
Pocket knives and rusty chains
Where in the hell is the old gang, yeah?

And all the losers
Can't even win for losing
And the beginners
Don't even know what song they're singing

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound
Alright

This broken scene is turning green
Brass knuckles left in the rain
Death wish kids among the living
I want to ride on the divided
Anything but the mainstream
Where the fuck is your old gang, man?

And all the losers
Can't even win for losing
And the beginners
Don't even know what song they're singing

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

So long
Didn't even say goodnight
So long
There's nowhere to go
When you're hiding in plain sight

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

Well there's no one left around
And you're the last gang in town
And your heart can't even break
When it doesn't even pound

    General CommentIt a little mixed of how billy and his band want to celebrate this 90's punk band as being the "last gang" and a mixed of a book where rusty Jame feel he the last of his gang because time has change when there no more Soc vs greaser, no more rumbles. and everyone move on to their individual path. And it tragic because Motorcycleboy try to convince him to give up this, so the song is like viewing in motorcycleboy point of view. It a sad meaning if you think about it, because billy and his gang feel that they are not ready to accept the change and just like how the old days are of the punk rock band. while back in the book, as much Rusty jame hate changes too, like billy and his band members,there has to be a time to let go and adapt the change. very sad meaning really...but sometime for rusty jame case it for his own good...sometime bad or not, I do sometime missed the old days.
