We don't get anywhere near the same repetition you do, apparently. Most venues in London below about 1000 people play pretty unknown stuff as a means of promoting it.

Bigger stuff, yeah they play more well known things, but usually bands arrive with a playlist of intermission music, rather than letting big venues who know shit about rock choose the stuff.

This thread reminds me of seeing Type O Negative in 2007. As TON was setting up, they had "What's New Pussycat?" playing over the speakers on loop for at least a half hour. People in the audience were legit getting pissed. Then, all of a sudden, "Walk" started playing and everyone in unison went "YEAH!!!" Before the vocals even kicked in, though, "Walk" was stopped and it was right back to Tom Jones. The audience this time went "Ooohhhh!!!!" ha ha ha good memories

Anything by fucking AC/DC. Aside from that, the venues around here don't really overkill the same bands/songs during intermissions.

I was at that show, right up front on the rail to. Not that it was hard to get that spot since the crowd wasn't too big to being with. My friend and I actually thought that was pretty funny when "Walk" stopped playing and they went right back to the Tom Jones song. Type O were known to be goofy, so I figured they were just ribbing the crowd by doing that.

Haha yeah they were definitely just being bastards and messing with people. I was right up front at the barricade too with my then girlfriend and we were both laughing at the people around us getting angry. Did you see them again in '08? It was terrible to see how Peter deteriorated during that year, he looked just awful. He even had to have a lyric book in front of him if I remember correctly

I was at the Mr. Bungle tour in 1999 where they played two hours of traditional Indian music before they came on. It was cool for about ten minutes, but by the end it was very, VERY old.
