Speaking of rock trivia, I just finished listening to the audiobook of the Daily Show oral history and here's an old-fashioned Matedog Special. What Bruce Stinkspleen song did Jon Stewart have played when he came on stage at the start of every show?

Stinkspleen...classic.

Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)

That was a Bruce song? The song that guests came out to, I always thought was a Ziggy Stardust homage

No, the Daily Show theme is by They Might Be Giants. I mean that when Stewart would come onto the set and sit down before they started the show, he always had one Broooooooooooooooooooooooooose song play him in (we don't hear it at home).

He did Land of Hopes and Dreams and BTR on the last Stewart ep. I'll go with BTR.

Is that the book with Wyatt Cenac talking about his shitty time there?
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.

He didn't like it? He fell of the fucking planet when he left. Saw 5 minutes of his dreadful standup special once.

You were obliged to get that one and you didn't fail.

Yup, that's covered (tho the story first came out when WC did a podcast). Pretty nasty all around, but WC comes off overly sensitive in it all. I don't think anyone who was there supported his interpretation of it all—that JS did a minstrel imitation of Herman Cain on air— including black staff and performers. But at the same time, JS got defensive very quickly and allowed it to become a shouting match.
