Green Day - "Paper Lanterns"

"Paper Lanterns" comes from Green Day's Slappy EP in 1990, which became part of 1,039/Smoothed Out Slappy Hours. In earlier days it was a staple of the band's live sets. "Paper Lanterns" alone is a two and a half minute number; however, it would often run upwards of 15 minutes in length when played live, as it would expand into a medley of songs such as "Rock You Like a Hurricane" and "Eye of the Tiger". It was during one such "Paper Lanterns" medley that the infamous mud fight broke out during Woodstock 1994.
