why no stand-up comedy?
« on: June 22, 2009, 08:31:56 AM »
i would have thought this would have made an appearance on the tour. a live song if ever there was one. funky rock. an ideal replacement for myserious ways.

Totally agree, although I think of it more as a replacement for Bullet. This song will rock live. I sure hope it makes an appearance.

It is not my favorite song on the album... but it is a sure stadium song! I kinda figured that it's inclusion on the album was FOR the live show... because it really doesn't fit the feel of the rest of the songs.
I'm surprised that they have not done it!
Maybe they don't like it that much either...

It doesn't really do much for me :/

Plus, they're playing Ultraviolet so I'm happy :P  :)

It also helps when you play 3 different versions of Ultraviolet from Zoo TV all day  ;D

I agree with this though, I'm not regretful about doing so.

Stand Up is one of the worst songs (maybe the worst) on the album, UV is just legendary. High time it made a live return. Can't see that Stand Up would add much to the set.

Sometimes I feel like I don't know, sometimes I feel like checking out...

If we're not careful Nielsen, this will become more about Ultraviolet than Stand Up Comedy :)

One man's trash....

Funny, it's one of my fave songs on the album! But then, I'm a fan of the rockin' tracks. Of course you haters would point out that this song's initials spell out S.U.C., and - you'd be correct! :)

(But I still think it's awesome and hope it gains some hard earned appreciation when they tear into it live.)

Well it seems very unlikely that the band think that, else they wouldn't have released it.

That song is my favourite song from NLOTH!

I wish they would play it...

I agree!!!  I hope I hear it in NYC.
