[MC intro]
Cherub Rock
Wretzky: Please don't kill anybody... please don't kill us
Corgan: Just remember there's people getting smushed. [in French accent] Can't we all just get along, we just wanna get along. This here's called 'Quiet'
Corgan: Please.. please take it easy out there. Please, don't push, OK
Iha: Yeah I know we suck
Corgan: Yes, yes, we are from Chicago... That's Jimmy and Jimmy and Jimmy and I'm Jimmy
Wretzky: Are you suffering? I'm sorry. We're suffering too
Corgan: See it says Devil not Gunga-Din. I am not your waterboy, I am your entertainer. If you want water don't come to the desert, ya know what I'm saying? This is another song off our new LP called 'Rocket'
Corgan: Damn right
Iha: We're gonna play an old song for ya
Corgan: Is everybody OK? Shall we stop? Want us to quit playing?
I Am One
Dancing In The Moonlight

Corgan: I hope you like that Thin Lizzy song
Iha: We're getting back to our roots
Corgan: This is my heavy metal guitar
Iha: We thought we'd kick it off for a few unspoken minutes there
Corgan: We're gonna play you some heavy metal
Iha: This next song is dedicated to the stud lord Mark Groom
Corgan: Whoever was mixing Catherine really had hearing problems, I mean what the fuck! So what do you want to hear?
Iha: We only got one song.. [crowd requests]... alright here it is! Alright we'll play Crossroads if you'll just shut up
Crossroads (tease)
Window Paine (blues version)

Corgan: Thank you. This here's called Geek, Geek U..
Geek U.S.A.
Corgan: Wow, it's really hot... let me state some more obvious things - I'm a boy and I'm in a band and...
Audience member: You cut your hair
Corgan: Yeah I cut my hair, I cut my pubic hair, cut off my legs..
Audience member: Coverdale/Page!
Corgan: Huh, what? Everyone has a message but it doesn't mean anything to me
Audience member: Play something good
Corgan: Play something good? Say something intelligent, you fuck..
Audience member: You're better than Sting
Corgan: Yeah, you're damn right we're better than Sting. You know there's like a hundred people outside going 'please get me in, please get me in' and it's like, it's like there's always gotta be five assholes who like.. huh, what?.. See a simple, a simple small show like this can't be a completely entirely happy situation. Someone's gotta be a dick, someone's gotta say something stupid, why, why? Explain to me, why, what the point?
Audience member: Why the hell not?!?!
Corgan: Why the hell not? That's what you form a band for, see, so you can stand up here and say whatever you want. I was once an opinionated bystander and now I'm an American
Corgan: You must be really bored. Well what happened to all the songs we play, if it's not good enough
Corgan: Well we're almost out of time. [crowd boos] Yeah I know, I make the laws, you came in by chance... so, we'll make this our last song and we'll go out on a high note.. well you know after the show we'll be in the parking lot with our acoustic guitars, OK
Iha: We're gonna be some Saga songs outside after he show. We all remember Saga... and we all know what a sweaty palm feels like, it's really disgusting
Corgan: So we will be back in the fall and play a normal sized place. Not that, not that the Unicorn is abnormally sized, but let's just say it's a version of a version, that's better logic
Iha: And again we'd like to fuck - fuck!?! - thank
Corgan: We'd like to fuck and thank
Iha: And you all, fuck you all!
Corgan: And let's, let's, hey sssh!
Iha: What I meant to say is, please, Gus
Corgan: Say thank you Gus, thank you Gus
Iha: And now let's play a little feedback
Star Spangled Banner (tease)
instrumental jam

Corgan: I hope.. I hope grunge dies and falls off the face of the earth, down with grunge
