I agree completely. Following up "Oh Love" with "Kill the DJ" was kind of like following up "Days Go By" with "Cruising California." Now, CC is a future frontrunner for the next wave of VH1-style "Worst songs of all time" lists and is obviously more ostentatious, while "Kill the DJ" will probably have a lot of people who like it just because it's Green Day. But the principle is the same- following up an innocuously boring song with one that's out of the band's comfort zone but ends up a total trainwreck.
I did like that other song they released, whatever it was called.
"LIVE OR DIE, MAN??"
