Banter[edit | edit source]

BC: Good evening.
Geek U.S.A.
Iha: This next song is a song about [2-3 unintelligible words], a salamander...a salamander.
> Rocket
BC: At some point we're going to have to choose between stage diving and the show. Well, you can stage dive all you want, but we're not gonna play anymore ‘cause I'm sick of getting popped in the fuckin' mouth. If you wanna stage dive, go ahead, but we're just gonna fuckin' quit, you can stage dive to fuckin’ [1-2 unintelligible words].
Bury Me
Iha: Sprechen [1-2 unintelligible words]. Have energy, heh heh. I know I don’t. This is called Blow Into Potsdam.
BC: This is called Hell-low Kitty Kat.
Hello Kitty Kat
D’arcy: Hi. We’re having some technical difficulty. I wanna thank Vince and Howard and we want to play you a song (Billy starts Country Death Song) but we don't know it.
Country Death Song (tease)
D’arcy: No, I’m sorry, actually, that music [unintelligible].
(tease ends)
Iha: Funny thing about Country Song, we played it last time. We have a technical problem right now and hope you endure it and uh, the only thing I can say is enjoy the atmosphere...
Improv Jam (D’arcy begins a bass line that becomes a full band jam with unintelligible vocals)
Iha: ...the lights, the sound, the people next to you, um, make a new friend tonight. Of the same gender, I saw [2-3 unintelligible words] over there. There’s nothing wrong about that. (adds spacey echo to vocals) There’s nothing wrong about that. Yes.
> Kill Your Parents
> Siva
Window Paine
Iha: Let us thank you very much.
I Am One
> Lookout Loretta
[encore break]
BC: Thank you for coming to the rock show. We apologize for being lame. Well, we’ve been less lame, I’m okay. And to continue our lameness, we’ll play another song you don’t know. Heh! And try to dance to this one.
Iha: [unintelligible].
Silverfuck / Star Spangled Banner
BC mid song: (singing) And I feel no pain. And I feel no pain. And and your stupid shouting. Because you haven't found it in your heart to get up on stage somewhere, you must shout at me and her. (Jimmy begins a snare roll) God bless America!
Iha: Four score and seven years ago [trails off unintelligibly].
BC: The very fact that you yell so easy for your fucked up country shows how fucked up you are. Don't be so quick to shout. Yeah, yeah, I'm a motherfucker. You don't have to hide when you say it. What's the matter?
Iha: Oh, let's not get angry now.
BC: Someone made fun of your country? You should be secure in your feelings, not worry about anybody else’s. I'm rockin', man. (singing) When you lie-hi-hie in your bed.... (song continues to end) (speaking) That's why I love America.
