Well that's sort of my point. They're big enough and old enough that they shouldn't be concerned with what will "go down well". Their fans, the real fans, will be more accepting than they perhaps think

Clover isn't from those albums Yeah, they do rotate those ones. They do King Nothing as well. But that is all they do. Ain't My Bitch, Devil's Dance, 2x4, Hero of The Day, Wasting My Hate, Cure, Bleeding Me, House That Jack Built, Better Than You... these are all good songs. Definitely deserving a place in the rotation. Along with -Human.

True... both the new songs are shit though... Especially The Other New Song.

Dyer's Eve made it's debut on the 2004 tour and was played several times. Fight Fire and Jump both appeared on that tour too, I think.

I was thinking more along the lines of Trapped Under Ice, The Frayed Ends of Sanity, The Shortest Straw, Escape, Phantom Lord, Call of The Ktulu (segued into Master forms the best concert opening of any band ever).

Yep, there are three kinds of band. Your Iron Maidens and your Megadeths, who play the same set night after night for an entire tour.

Then there's your Metallicas and Saxons who have a batch of songs, some of which are played every night, although not always in the same order, and the rest are rotated.

Then there's your ultimate bands. Your Allman Brothers, Gov't Mules and Black Crowes, who play a completely different set every night. Warren from Mule even goes so far as to keep a database of all their setlists, which he refers to constantly when creating setlists for shows to make sure they don't play any of the songs they played in that city last time they were there.

Easy for me... I don't like Blackened very much, so it's Creeping all the way.

8/5 Corey Taylor
12/5 Gov't Mule
