NOTES

This show was rescheduled from a few weeks earlier after Todd was forced to cancel due to illness. Todd makes a mistake in the lyrics of the third verse of Tension and replays the entire song: "Anybody could come down here and do shit they know."


VARIATIONS

On Tension:

  • "In America we like our bad guys dead. Preferably after some kind of kick ass car chase or something like that."
  • "People still dig drugs. Shit. Drugs are literally bigger than Rush Limbaugh. And he's pretty big."
  • "People still dig drugs. I played that Taste of Chicago thing. Shit.
  • "Queer people getting married. That's what scares people that don't have anything else to be scared of these days."
On Alright Guy:
  • "...new book with all those pictures of Chris Gaines naked..."
  • "It ain't like I went on TV and tore up a picture of the pope like Sinead O'Connor did that time."
  • "They turned on their lights and said, 'Hey, man, what's that smell coming out of your car?'"
  • "Now I'm stuck in this jail with my buddy Elvis Hixx."
