It was a rocky road getting to “Janie Jones.” Let me tell you some tales out of school. (The bands involved won’t care.) First, The Dismemberment Plan expressed interest in playing the song, very early in the series, but couldn’t make it work with schedules. Then, Wild Flag claimed the song, 24 hours before Against Me! said they wanted it. It was painful to have to deny the Florida punk band, and nothing else on the list really interested them. Then Wild Flag had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict, and the Against Me! dudes were gracious enough to step back in and slay “Janie Jones.” What a great song.
