An early version, named "Pay To Play", was recorded with three different drummers: Chad Channing, Dale Crover and Dave Grohl.
The guitar riff from the song was apparently used on one of the songs on the Fecal Matter
Available on the DGC Rarities Volume 1 compilation as "Pay To Play."
The early title "Pay to Play" is a reference to a concept from the mid 80's where rockclubs, instead of paying the band, sold a stack of tickets to them which they then had to sell.
This is also pointed out in Heavier Than Heaven
"Pay To Play mocked the practice of clubs charging bands to play".
DN Member bambi adds:
""Pay to Play already says "I get so little money for a performance, it is as if I have to pay".
The line "move an inch, take a mile" could mean something like that people always take, and never bother about others.
"Never Faded, never Smiled" - I was never famous (because you didn't let me?).
"Never mind, eat and run" - just play as quick as possible and then get paid, so I can finally eat and then I will have to Run" for a next performance, because I'm already out of money.
"Fuck your ass for the fun" - I could easily ask money for it, since noone does nothing for nothing."
