The composition of “Brain Stew” is relatively simple. The song contains only five power chords, five bass notes, and a relatively simple drum pattern. Many of Green Day’s fans consider it to be one of their first songs to appear in the repertoire of many garage bands. Billie Joe Armstrong has stated that he used as many as 10 guitar overdubs to achieve the scratchy dissonant sounds in the latter part of the song.
The intro to “Panic Song” is often played in between “Brain Stew” and “Jaded” at live performances, although the key is changed to be relevant with the songs.
