I"Stuck with Me" is the second single from Green Day's fourth studio album "Insomniac".

Meaning

The song is about being too weak, and too much of a push-over to stand up for yourself. It is also about being part of the upper classes after Dookie's release, and how Billie Joe Armstrong didn't quite fit in.[1] The song also appears on the Foot in Mouth EP.

Studio Mix-Up

When Green Day was recording songs for Insomniac, they were trying to think of an appropriate name for the song that later was released as "Stuck With Me". The also recorded the song now called "Do Da Da" around the same time. However, the song was originally called "Stuck With Me", because those words actually appear in that song. Unfortunately, there was a studio mix-up, and someone labeled the third track on Insomniac "Stuck With Me". When the band discovered the error, they felt the name was appropriate for the song and kept it. When it came down to deciding on B-Sides, Green Day decided to release the real "Stuck With Me". They in turn gave it the nonsensical name "Do Da Da"

Lyrics

I'm not part of your elite I'm just alright Class structure waving colors Bleeding from my throat Not subservient to you I'm just alright Down classed by the powers that be Give me loss of hope

Cast out... Buried in a hole Struck down... forcing me to fall Destroyed... giving up the fight Well,I know I'm not alright

What's my price and will you pay it if it's alright? Take it from my dignity waste it until it's dead Throw me back into the gutter 'Cause it's alright Find another pleasure fucker Drag them down to hell

Cast out... Buried in a hole Struck down... forcing me to fall Destroyed... giving up the fight Well,I know I'm not alright

Cast out... Buried in a hole Struck down... forcing me to fall Destroyed... giving up the fight Well,I know I'm not alright
