Don’t Gimme No Lip
One of the major surprises on 2003’s Lost Dogs was the uncovering of a second No Code-era track written and sung by Stone Gossard. “Don’t Gimme No Lip” managed to evade rumors and leaks for a solid seven years, but there’s probably a good reason for that. Despite a pretty satisfying crunch, the song offers very little other than its novelty, making it a wise choice to give “Mankind” album status instead. The repetition of the title gets old quick, but even that is preferable to short couplets like “Don’t gimme no lip / I’ve got no taste for it”. Still, it’s always a joy to have Stone step up to the mic in concert, make a few sly, self-deprecating comments, and launch into even this slight little pop punk tune.
