"Stuck with Me" is a song by American punk rock band Green Day. It was released as the second single from their fourth album, Insomniac. The song is about being too weak and too much of a push-over to stand up for yourself. It is also about the band being part of the upper classes after the release of their previous album, Dookie, and how frontman Billie Joe Armstrong didn't quite fit in.[1] The song also appears on the live album Foot in Mouth. It peaked at #24 on the UK charts.[2]

Studio mix-up

When Green Day was recording songs for Insomniac, they were trying to think of an appropriate name for the song that later was released as "Stuck with Me." They also recorded the song now called "Do Da Da" around the same time. However, "Do Da Da" was originally called "Stuck with Me." However, there was a studio mix-up, and someone labeled the third track on Insomniac "Stuck with Me." When the band discovered the error, they felt the name was appropriate for the song and kept it. When deciding on B-sides, Green Day decided to release the real "Stuck with Me." They in turn gave it the nonsensical name "Do Da Da."[1] It was later re-released on Shenanigans.
