Banter[edit | edit source]

Iha: Dank you, dank you.
BC: Ah ah. ... This is-a called The Kiss.
Geek U.S.A.
BC: Hello. How are you today? I'm fine, thank you. I got stung by a bee.
Bury Me
(Jimmy and D’arcy start Window Paine)
BC: Are you still there? It's a beautiful day.
Window Paine
BC: Here's a song about being in love with animals.
Guys in crowd: Siva!
BC: (off mic) What?
Guys in crowd: Siva!
BC: (on mic) What?
Iha: Freebird, heh heh. I see you’re from America then.
BC: Here's another song about being in love, but this one's about being in love with your mom. Not my mom, your mom.
Iha: We're looking for some American dancers, by the way, if they ever show up, they can dance freely.
D’arcy: Dancers slash beasts without a top, please.
BC: Where are our dancers? Heh, raise your hand, dancers, heh heh. (laughing) No! The ones I talked to before the show. Heh, come up, come up to the front. Somebody give these men a pass, they need to dance. Heh, heh. Let them up!
Iha: These red blooded American men need to dance.
BC: That's right! And as they're coming to the stage, we'll play you a little song, a get up on stage and dance song.
Kill Your Parents
BC: Let's hear it for our dancers!
> Siva
(BC before bridge: This is the interpretive part. Let’s hear it for the dancers. They’re beautiful men. And if I wasn’t celibate, I’d love every one of them.
Iha: Those are my boyfriends.
BC: Heh. (singing) Sprinkle all my kisses....)
(Iha during pause before final chorus: And again, we bring out the dancers, all the way from America! Their last hurrah!
BC: More dancing.
Iha: One more verse.
A few guys in the crowd: Stage dive!
BC: (laughing) Stage dive? Ah. I ain’t that dumb. (singing) I just wanna love you!)
BC: Thank you.
> I Am One
BC: We have time for one more song and we'd like to thank you very much. You're a wonderful bunch of peoples. We'd like to play another song that you don't know.
Guy in crowd: [unintelligible]!
BC: Heh, don't know that one.
Iha: You just want to see the Chippendales, don't you, all the way from America, the Chippendales that danced for you.
BC: I think we might see some naked men! Wanna see some naked men?
Iha: We got 'em, heh heh heh.
BC: Oh, you should wait until the song really peaks out. Alright. No, and I don't have time for a thing. And this is called, for you bootleggers, Silverfuck.
Silverfuck / When You Wish Upon a Star
[encore break]
MC: Okay, so the Smashing Pumpkins and Billy Corgan! Thank you. [continues in Dutch]
BC: Hello? You sure you want us to play another song? I'm awful shy, you know. (Dutch accent) We don't play those songs anymore.
Iha: Thank you very much, thank you.
BC: Alright, while D'arcy retunes, we'll play you a song.
Slunk (slow version, abandoned)
BC: Alright, you in tune? Okay. This is one of them cover songs. It's really embarrassing too.
