Yeah i understand that, but taking credit for an entire song is wrong in my opinion. I'm not putting down John, but when he says "words and music by Rzeznik" he's saying that we did the bass line, drum line, and the entire song.

 
It may be wrong in your opinion, but presumably the band are happy with it that way, or else they wouldn't DO it that way. And it works the other way round too...Robby's songs are credited to 'Robby Takac' so does that mean he's claiming all Rzeznik's guitar parts, as though he did them himself?
 
I mean, Robby and John have been friends, like, forever. I imagine if Robby wasn't comfortable with it he'd have told Johnny. And Mike seems like a pretty laid back kinda guy, so I imagine he's cool with it.
 
Besides, it's kinda like stating the obvious, don't you think? I mean, all the band members are listed inside the album cover, along with which instrument they play. Wouldn't it be overkill (not to mention laborious) to list "Guitar - John Rzeznik, Bass... drums... lyrics... etc" for EVERY single song?
 
Just my thoughts on it, dude_named_goo.  Smiley
 
Also...I just looked at a few of the albums...I couldn't find anywhere where it said "Words and music by John Rzeznik". Or by anyone else for that matter. In DUTG and GF, it just has the song title with whoever wrote it credited right underneath...

"Stand Alone" is such a great song! I think that's one of my favorite Robby songs. Too bad they didn't put it on the record.

Yeah u make a pretty good point. I'm sure if any of the guys had a problem with it they'd speak up. I wasn't judging john or robby's character, cuz i happen to know for a fact that they are both great guys. Wink

Sarah you could watch Behind the Music and find out more!
But basically George wasn't getting along with John and if you take a good look at their older pictures you notice in most of them george  is glaring at John out of jealousy or something like that.
In other words George was a jerk and they had to fire him and you notice that as soon as they fired him they became famous according to Mike.

Yeah that's true but i don't think them firing George is what made them famous, cuz Name was a huge hit and if I'm not mistaken, that's George playin drums on Name.

Yeah, but Mike made the joke that he is the reason they are famous now.
