There's a few serious contenders, but I think it's the worst song they've ever written and performed.

I was lucky enough to be there for its debut. What an amazing concert moment.

That song would've been so much better with a lyrical/vocal overhaul. Rarely is such a positive message expressed so so poorly. Musically the song isn't even bad.

I agree with that, Tomacco.

I actually really liked the funky thing Tim was doing and Jeff had a nice solo. But the ladies, the gobble noises, the bullshit "lyrics." Just embarrassing. Right up there with that stupid song from 2010. Can't even remember the name of it. Was kind of interesting on the Citi New York release and then became a giant turd.

The one thing I will say about blackjack is that I think that ending jam had a lot of potential.

Both Be Yourself and Blackjack wouldn't be nearly as bad if they had complete lyrical overhauls.

I disagree. Blackjack is such a typical 2006 Batson cut-and-paste song with mismatched parts and endless repetition. At least Be Yourself is musically a contained song that flows.

I also find the BY gobbles/lyrics less annoying than the entire chorus of Blackjack, musically, lyrically and vocally.

God, Blackjack is awful.

Wow I was so caught up on the chorus of Blackjack that I forgot how embarrassing the verses are where Dave just babbles total nonsense the entire time.

Blackjack is the worst "song" the band has ever performed. Worse than anything on Stand Up. I can't understand how anyone would disagree.

Absolutely no doubt. Be Yourself is miles ahead of it imo. It's got lousy, lousy lyrics, but the music is by no means as bad as a lot of people here make it out be.

Blackjack is unlistenable. Be Yourself is not.

Blackjack on the Citi release is great. A shame with what it turned into.
