The Rose March

BC: Thank you very much, thank you. Like to play an old, old, old song now. Long before Jeff and Ginger and Lisa were born. I believe you were idea in your father’s mind. How’s everybody doing, you okay? I don’t know what we’re doing in the fuckin’ Subaru factory but uh, it’s great to be here. Maybe later we can all get together and build a car. We’ll go green together. This is a song from way back. It originally came out on the Singles soundtrack. Remember that movie, Singles? And I’m - I’m still single, yeah, heh heh. Yeah, there’s a reason for that, Jeff. No woman can handle me. I’m just too big...hearted. Anyway, this is a song called Drown.

[encore break]
I Don’t Mind
BC: Well, that’s the end of the show, goodnight, thank you very much. Yeah. That’s the end of the show. Hey, I’m only one man, I’m only one man, I can only do so much for you. Believe me, if I could come here and help you win a World Cup, I would do it. I would do it in a second. I know you need a good striker, right here. I’m a natural athlete. Thank you very much for coming, thank you, we appreciate you. You might wanna tell your friends that did not come to the show tonight that A: we’re not dead, okay? B: we’re not stuck in the fuckin’ ‘90s, thank you very much. Uhhh, we’re back, we’re gonna stay together for years and years to come. And you remember that thing called alternative rock? Remember that, alternative rock? When bands actually gave a shit about their audience, alternative rock? Yeaah. You ‘member that? Bands actually kind of interrelated with the audiences, they understood their lives and problems and they actually gave a fuck. Alternative rock, do you remember it? I know some of you are too young to remember alternative rock. Not this man, not this man. It’s Morrissey’s brother...Les Morrissey. But hey, you know what? Fuck alternative rock, okay? What the fuck did it ever do for me? Okay, gave me a bunch of fuckin’ problems, therapy, broke up the band. Fuck alternative rock, man! I wanna get in there with the Linkin Parks, I wanna get in there. I wanna get in there! I wanna figure out what they got going on, I gotta get a DJ. Nah, I’m just kidding, I like Linkin Park. Linkin Park, they’re good kids. They’re good kids. They used to mow my lawn. Seriously, that - I got ‘em started. The kid with the earphones mowed my lawn. Nah, I’m just kidding around. Rock is fun, don’t - don’t let me fool you, it’s a fun time, rock, fun, all the time, fun fun fun. Look at Amy Winehouse, she’s having a great time. She’s gettin’ down. She’s totally gettin’ down. God bless her. What else? Did Garbage break up? Garbage, the band Garbage, remember them? Shirley. Did they break up? Heh. Isn’t she Scotland’s own Shirley Manson? Is she a traitor or...? Heh heh. I love Shirley, Shirley’s great. Shirley used to go out with the kid from Linkin Park. He mowed the lawn and she would come over and make sandwiches and then wipe his brow when he would come in. Don’t you like where this is goin’? - fuckin’ nowhere! That’s where I’m goin’ after the show: fuckin’ nowhere. Actually, we’re going to Manchester, Manchester. (crowd boos) Hey, last I remembered, there was no fuckin’ Joy Division comin’ from Glasgow, okay? Who’s from Glasgow? Jesus and Mary Chain? Heh heh. I love them. What’s the greatest band to ever come out of Scotland? Led Zeppelin, they’re from Scotland? Awesome.
Whole Lotta Love (tease - Billy starts the riff and the rest of the band joins in for 15 seconds)
BC: Whoa, very nice. Never knew that. (Jeff noodles with the riff for a few seconds) Jeff’s up here giving me a guitar lesson. That’s the end of the show, thank you.
Jeff: No, I, that was - we’re gonna start over.
BC: I’ve gotta go backstage and take off my dress, snort some cocaine off a hooker’s ass.
Jeff: Yeah!
BC: Let me the fuck outta here! Oh wait, that was the ‘90s, ahhhhh, alternative rock. We just did alternative drugs, that’s about it. Okay, goodbye, I’ll shut the fuck up, god bless you, thank you.
Cherub Rock
