    Yeah, I really don't get that.
    I really don't get why they played it at back to back shows in Seattle either. Ya they were almost 5 years apart but it is still such a rare song that I find to be kind of odd.

    Yeah, keep it to play if they ever do a show late December.

    Wrigley in August (2016) was a little odd, too, but I was glad to be there and hear it!

    I also can't stand it as a complete song. Now I did hear it on an MLB ad when I was in the USA last month, and thought it wasn't so bad as a song used in a commercial... but that is hardly a compliment, lol.

    It is so cool that when they start playing it  I’d probably either pee or get a beer.

    "Johnny Guitar" would be amazing if it were only the last bit ("I hide my disappointment..."). Everything else is a bonus. LOVE that tune.

  • Wouldn't it be fucking awesome if at one of there inevitable next baseball stadiums shows with fans flying in from around the world, they copy/pasted every song on this thread for the set list!!

    anyway, here's my list (I'll keep it to studio albums)

    Evacuation, Get Right, Infallible, Swallowed Whole

    Fun thread Buck!

    Well, remove Sirens, and it would be a dream setlist for me.

    It's certainly overrated/overplayed. I think Getaway is a much better tune.

    Agreed. Too bad they’ve never been able to get Getaway right in a live setting. I’m not sure why though? It’s a pretty straightforward song musically but it just doesn’t translate live at all.

    Was wondering when Can't Deny Me might show.  You gotta at least appreciate Eddie playing secondary percussion on it.

    Been awhile since I've been here, not sure if I replied to this thread, but if I did, I'm pretty sure I said Whipping.  I can't stand that song. Don't need a helmet . . . Oh please give me helmet so I never have to hear that song again.  But to each his own . and I totally respect that.

    Was thrilled they played it this summer. Gets the audience going too.

  • Not the worst song, but I'm so bored of Even Flow at almost every single bloody show.  Always skip it when it comes to bootlegs too

    Of The Earth is up there with Ole as worst for me
  • vaggar99vaggar99 San Diego USAPosts: 3,075
    never liked Eflow myself.  piss break
  • AggAgg Philadelphia, PAPosts: 456
    Just Breathe is awful imo. Never liked it and I'd love to never hear it again haha. 
    Sirens, Future Days, and Can't Deny me are also some of the worst to me.

    Ed keeps singing Getwaway and it fucks up the band's timing.

    I'm amazed how many songs people don't like. I can't say I have one song I don't dig up until the Cheeseball Trifecta on LB. Sure, I'll skip the "experimental" songs, but I don't really consider those songs, more interludes. But all of them have a purpose, and I think most of them hit the mark.
