Do a Google search for “had to work the late shift at DISH” (in quotes) and see their handiwork.
I’m not sure I understand how this is effective at all. If I’m looking into a product and want an opinion, I think the last person I want to hear from is an employee.
Kind of semantics, but this isn’t the Foo Fighters. It’s Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, and what looks like (Foo Fighters and Rush producer) Nick Raskulinecz on bass.
Fixed now. Thanks!
I’ve tried several different browsers on two different machines, and I can’t get it to play. (I’m not using Flashblock.) I think there’s a problem with the filename – either the capital H or the question mark. (Probably the question mark.)
Grohl has already done pretty much the exact same thing, a thousand times better, and did it back in ’97. It’s on the Foos Greatest Hits, for crying out loud (aka, “Everlong [Acoustic]“).
One lost side note – “Down in a Hole” was placed after “Angry Chair” in the first pressings.
I was profoundly disappointed when I found out (years later) that they’d moved it up. The transition from “Angry Chair” to “Down in a Hole” was my favorite on the album, and it followed “Angry Chair” perfectly. It was a perfect coda for the album.
(Having said that, it actually made “Would?” feel even more tacked-on.)
I saw it in Toronto. Not only is this trailer the entire movie, it’s actually better edited than the actual movie. The real thing is a little bit all over the place – the Tim and Jeff storylines never really come together as they should, and there’s a totally unnecessary denouement after the concert.
Having said that, what Badgley does in the record store scene (seen briefly in the trailer) is brilliant. And he generally does a fantastic job as Buckley (with the lone exception of a scene where he and Lucas are working on something – it seemed like he was pushing himself harder than Jeff would have).
It would behoove anyone seeing this movie to familiarize yourself with Tim Buckley’s music beforehand. It focuses pretty heavily on it, and some moments are a little confusing if you aren’t familiar with it.
Despite my criticism, still worth seeing. (Though I’m hoping they take another pass at editing before its official release.)
“Breath” is one of the crossed-out songs. (The other is “In My Tree”.) I suspect they were running long.
Also, this was apparently a band-modified version of Brian’s setlist. There’s another copy floating around that has “Fatal”, “Jeremy”, and “Other Side” instead of “Severed Hand”, “Deep”, and “Nothing As It Seems”.
I’m not going to say anything about the quality/humor contained in this performance, but this was pretty scandalous live tv moment at the time, especially since MTV wasn’t running a 7-second delay for some reason.

I think it was on a major, but one of my favorite sub-2:00 songs is Suicide Machines’ “No Face”.
Ironically, Barry Manilow did not write “I Write the Songs”.
