To commemorate happy chocolate-eating day, this week's Song of the Week is the gritty Geek Stink Breath, track 4 off Green Day's fourth album; 1995's Insomniac. Geek Stink Breath was the first single released off Insomniac, charting at number 27 in the Billboard Hot 100 and number 3 in the Billboard Alternative Songs charts. A rather graphic music video, featuring a real tooth extraction was made to accompany the single's release - remember to brush your teeth after all the chocolate, Green Day fans!

Geek Stink Breath's lyrics vividly describe both addiction to and symptoms of methamphetamine use, from hallucinations ("I'm picking scabs off my face") to hyperactivity ("I'm on a roll, no self-control"). The song, as with much of Insomniac's material, has a dark, gritty sound that reflects the ugly images presented in the lyrics, and Billie Joe's snarling, somewhat sloppily pronounced vocals add to the song's overall dirty feel.

As mentioned earlier, the official music video released for the song features the band's friend getting his tooth extracted, with a dentist's-eye-view of the action, cut in between shots of the band playing the song. It's not light viewing, especially if you're eating. So put down that easter egg before hitting play.
