Wait, Green Day went Tiki?

I had forgotten that on Nimrod Green Day had gone all Tiki exotica on Last Ride In. It's a pretty good, simple tune with some gently lapping waves, a bit of xylophone (or vibraphone, I can never tell the difference) and simple surf riffs. Who'da thunk it?

That is awesome.
"Last Ride In" Definitely influenced by "Theme From Endless Summer" with a little Exotica thrown in. Though I can't really picture those dudes listening to Martin Denny.
