Song #2. They might recognize it from a commercial.
God damn it, that's what the rest of the band wants to play. I have about 1000X more fun playing The Hives. Also, I don't know what the hell you guys are talking about with the other suggestions/jokes.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

A. I'm just being pragmatic for your audience.
B. They are Misfits songs. Both are full of swears.

The Hives song would be better and more fun to play, but given the rest of your oeuvre the Blur songs fits in a lot better.
Also, I don't know what the hell you guys are talking about with the other suggestions/jokes.

The Soviet National Anthem.
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

What about something by Space?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Bob Dylan can't sing.

90's emo bands with wining singers piss me off.

Buddy Holly rules.

I don't mind Bobby D's voice at all. Well, when I saw him live a few years ago, his vocals were pretty god awful.

I thought emo was most whiny in the early aughts?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

What does "can't sing" mean?
