Grohl - "Hi Cobain - "Keep your fucking laws off my sisters body"
JESUS WANTS ME FOR A SUNBEAM
FLOYD THE BARBER
Novoselic - "Thanks a lot. Thanks for your, thanks for coming, as you know this is no ordinary show. It's a show to help keep abortion legal and one of the reasons why the abortion issue is just the tip of the iceberg, it's a big issue, is because it seems like the government of the United States is into control. They wanna control abortion, they wanna control marijuana laws, they wanna control your privacy and it is wrong. Do you have all of these yellow ribbon, flag waving, TV watching idiots saying America is number 1, but listen to this. In education America is number 16, 17, we're way down the ladder, right. So what they're saying is more control and less education and that's a recipe for disaster, because the…the less there are free thinking, informed people, the more they can oppose their greedy, materialistic, back scratching favour type corrupt government prophecists to screw up the whole planet, not this country and that's why you have to stand up on this issue and it doesn't matter if, if you think abortion is wrong, don't have one, because, you know, we're not gonna come into your church and say, you know, do this or that, that's not right, you know? Whatever you believe and it's a woman's issue too, because it's a woman's body, so I'm saying to you be educated and think about the issue and be educated in general, because that's what the United States needs and smash your TV set, because that's the opiate!"
SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT
Grohl - "So there's a show tomorrow night at Jabberjaw, Melvins are playing with Wool and Spoon and you guys should go. It's at 9:30, there you go. It should prove to be the best show you've ever seen in your life!"
ABOUT A GIRL
Novoselic - "Jumping around up here right and this whole stage is like black rubber and I'm playing barefoot on it and the lights are cooking that rubber and my tootsies are baking, ooooh! Is that doctor reputable?"
Novoselic - "Thanks a lot"
Grohl - "This song's calld Been A Son"
BEEN A SON
ON A PLAIN
Grohl - "Thank you"
Novoselic - "This song's for William Rehnquist"
Novoselic - "Usually you don't get this political at shows, but tonight's a special event, remember this is… everybody paid money here to help keep abortion legal, like what I was talking about earlier. It's the tip of the iceberg, remember it was last November there was a coup in Russia right? And all this capitalist circus was saying, hey it's a triumph of capitalism over communism and to a little degree that's true, but what it was about, it was about human spirit against totalitarianism and Stalinism and people made a difference, so don't get whitewashed about this communism's a failure, saying, you know that's debatable, but that was a police state and the United States is getting that way. So we gotta fight back while we still have a chance"
Novoselic - "Thanks a lot, you guys were totally great and remember stay educated and revolution wasn't last November, but a few months ago, people power, show the man"
Voice - "Nirvana posters, signed. $10 in the lobby, buy now!"
Novoselic - "You're so kind, I feel like Jello Biafra, but he has a lot to say too! So you know he's probably more qualified than I am, but you know, just don't read er..USA Today or Time or Newsweek and all that propaganda rags and you might like steer clear of all the distortion. What was that? A middle finger then peace, so what, what…translate that!"
Voice - "Nirvana fucking rip"
Novoselic - "No, this person has something to say, give him a chance!"
Voice - ""fucking don't... don't ignore the papers man, just read them but fucking have your own opinion, you know fucking complaining tons"
Novoselic - "I don't know, you know, I'm not responsible for bombing 150,000 people in Iraq in January, it's the truth! Go ahead and break my heart like everybody with a yellow ribbon did"
Novoselic - "Thanks a lot, call me Jello Biafra or call me Lenny Bruce or call me whoever edits the National Review, but all I gotta say is this ... [Novoselic says the intro to 'Territorial Pissings']"
