Spencer Ackerman asks “is there a punk or hardcore band that writes more about riding buses than Rancid?”
Probably not. But I would note that Rancid is multi-modal. To be sure, they take the 60 Bus out of downtown Campbell (headed to San Jose, perhaps) but I was also quite tickled during the one trip I ever took to the Bay Area to find myself “at the stations / Daly City train” just as the song says. If only they’d gone into greater detail about how they got from 6th street up to the corner of 52nd and Broadway. Walk up to 8th street NR stop and take the train to 49th and 7th seems most probable.
