Brendan: I'm not really making fun of A.F.I. There band is whatever, it's like if that guy wants to dress like a New Jersey fucking prostitute that's his fucking prerogative. You know? (laughs)
Toby: I think that says something about you, that you're okay with that.
Brendan: That's right. I fully support New Jersey prostitutes. In fact you might say I directly support them with my own…
So I want to talk to Neil for a second, because this is a rumor I've heard, is it true you wrote "Swing Life Away", the Rise Against song?
Justin: Lord, not again.
Neil: No, I didn't write it.
I've heard a ton of people say that [you did], do you get asked that a lot?
Neil: Tim wrote it, maybe 80%. Then we were just hanging out one after noon.
He was like, "want your name on it?"
Neil: Well, we finished it and I helped write some lyrics and did like vocal melodies and stuff.
Do a lot of people assume you wrote that?
Neil: Yeah, because it got printed that I was the sole writer on the Punk goes Acoustic comp. It says, "Written by: Neil Hennesey".
Brendan: Interestingly enough, Neil wrote The Suffer and The Witness in it's entirety. Completely uncredited.
