Surely 90% of the time the band has a set list sorted. why can't you just be happy to hear what they play???
and they played it. The end.
scream the names of songs you don't want them to play
I remember seeing Drugstore ages ago. Isobel said she would play either Nectarine or Accelerate off the first album and whipped the crowd up to shout for one or the other. I was shouting 'Accelerate' at the top of my lungs for about 10 minutes, it was a close thing but eventually she decided that Accelerate had won. They got about 4 bars in and then she realised she'd forgotten the words and had to play 'Nectarine' anyway...
we know better than them.
Any time you see Mountain goats play some tossers just shout for No Children...Shut up! You know he is going to play it at the end!
at the end doesn't he? That's how they closed both times I saw them. What a fucking awesome live band by the way. Even just JD and the bassist were amazing.
all their live sets are completely different.
People shouting for 'the single', if there is one, because they're retarded.
People shouing for their favourite because they NEED to hear it live and think it might just change their life.
I'm totally OK with one of these.
and also, bands sometimes forget to play songs, e.g. last wednesday in brighton Off With Their Heads forgot to play 'I Am You'... ;P
a couple of years ago at the Union Chapel Mimi had massive stage fright and basically refused to sing any lead vocals. At the end of the set the audience kept calling out for 'in metal' and Alan kept telling us that she wasn't up to it. But, you can't go and see Low and not have 'in metal' can you? Eventually she caved.
I wanted them to play their version of 'Transmission' but no-one was paying any attention to me.
they asked the audience to request a song and they'd play it, but the catch was you had to go up on stage and sing it with them.
a couple of years back, one very drunk guy kept shouting for Starsign between every single song. Unlike every other time I've seen them. they didn't play it that night. Pretty sure it was because of the idiot.
once and a guy behind me was bellowing for 'Free Money' after and during every song. As if that wasn't annoying enough, when she DID play it he spent the rest of the gig shouting "THANK YOU PATTI! I LOVE YOU PATTI!"
I was there! Cool :) Don't know what forklift is - doubtless some obscure b-side that you've successfully out-cooled me with ;D
'twas ace, though, n'est pas? Finished with "Here" if I remember rightly.
He played Eye of the Tiger.
End of. If you were into them first, let everyone know, that's what I say ;P
I saw Seafood at Truck year before last. I absolutely loved them in '98 (Messenger in the Camp era - i.e. before they went rubbish) and spent the whole gig shouting for Porchlight (still one of the best songs I've ever heard).
They got a bit pissed off, but then screwed up their last number and had to start again. The cry went up from a number of people for Porchlight, they thought about it, and then played the crappy new one anyway.
Conclusion: did it work, no. Did I feel cooler than everyone else, yes. Success? Of course!
this was shouted at what seems like every hope of the states gig ever. Its not even that strong a song, it just became a joke in the end.
it was like freebird all over again
They played it when I saw them a few weeks ago. Whatshisface tried to get everyone to join in at the start, but no-one did.
Was good though.
it was the first gig I ever went to. I was about 15. Just after Slayer come onstage this huge, utterly drunk, metaller turned up and stood right next to me and lit up a joint the size of a goal post. After every single song he screamed for Angel of Death. Eventually they played it and as they finished he screamed for it again and promptly passed out, falling backwards.
It's fucking embarrassing. Annoyingly you can hear him all over the bootleg.
People carried on doing it during the second half of the gig even though there was a painter producing 6 foot fucking canvases of the next song to be played.
