Banter[edit | edit source]

BC: Whooo!
Bury Me
> Quiet
BC: Thank you.
I Am One
(BC immediately before guitars kick in: This is called I Am One!)
(BC midsong: Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken! Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken. What you want is what you'll get, what you want is what you'll get from me. Nothing can be taken from me that hasn't already been taken, nothing can be taken from me that hasn’t already been taken, nothing, nothing, nothing. So ask yourself what do you want? Ask yourself, what do you want? ‘Cause it surely ain't motherfuckin' rock 'n' roll! That's the last thing you want. Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing!)
BC: Thank you. Bonjour! That's all I know how to say. I love you too, (blows kiss).
BC: So what do you wanna hear? What? (crowd yelling) No, we can't play that song.
BC: Are you having a fun time? A bon time?
Iha: Are you rocking? Heh heh heh. We have no side fills, you see, it is very hard...but we are trying. No, and no one can hear me and no one can understand me, so I'll just keep rambling on, yes!
BC: So uh, this is a song about being in love and being in France.
Geek U.S.A.
BC: Merci.
Cherub Rock
[encore break]
BC: What?! What the fuck do you want?! Nah, I can't understand French anyway. Yeah.
Lady Marmalade (tease)
BC: Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Iha: Oh, those Americans, those Americans are so funny on stage...but boy, do they rock.
(Iha during pause before final chorus: Oh, I like that!
(crowd yelling)
BC: Shhh, shh. (crowd keeps yelling) Shhh.)
> Paranoid (tease - 2x through riff)
[encore break]
BC: Yeaaaaah!!!! ... Shh, come on! We've been together long enough now where you don't have to yell, you know? We can, uh, you know, have an intimate relationship at this point. If I wasn't married, I'd fuck you later and all.... Hey man, once a slut, always a slut, you know, I can't help it. I have a virgin butt though, you know, (laughing) I really do.
Iha: Wow.
(Silverfuck intro begins)
BC: That was Rhinoceros, by the way...from our first album, Fish.
Iha: Wow, psychedelic.
BC: I lost myself in raga.
Iha: Oh man, did that happen to you again? Hunh!
Audience member: Spaceboy!
BC: No, we have one more song for you and it's called Silverfuck. And it goes something like this!
> Silverfuck / Over the Rainbow
(BC over outro jam: There is no understanding, there is only pain! Pain! There is no understanding! Only motherfuckin' pain! Pain, pain, pain!)
