Also on Bill: Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mad Season, The Fastbacks
Set: Judgment Rage..., Generation Spokesmodel, What Moves the Heart?
Notes: This was a radio broadcast free to any station that wished to pick it up. The entire broadcast lasted 260 minutes. During one segment, Eddie Vedder (who acted as the master of ceremonies), played a phone message left for him and his wife by one Mr. Matt Lukin. Later in the broadcast, Steve briefly spoke about Dave Grohl. Mark introduced each song before they played it. The preface for Judgement Rage... was, "...it's about four things. I'm not sure what they are." When he got to What Moves the Heart?, he said, "...and this poses the musical question, what moves the heart?" (transcription of Matt and Steve's appearances)

Notes: This was a special secret gig. Each song was started and finished with cowbells, because, as Matt explained: "We are cowboys, you see".

Notes: During The Zeros' set, Mudhoney sat in the balcony, where the dressing rooms are located, and kept calling for the same song to be played over and over.

Notes: A classic billing. After playing a show to 20,000 punks, Mel Torme ("The Velvet Fog") came off the stage saying that it was the greatest show of his life. Unfortunately, the home-town crowd was less hospitible to Mudhoney. Using the lemon-halves from their drinks, they showed the band that they were much more eager to see the headlining Ramones by sending a hail of the fruits torwards the stage. Mark prefaced F.D.K. with, "it's an honor to be playing with the Ramones tonight. If it weren't for them, this song would have never been written." At the end of 1995 Mark begins repeating, "there's no place like home," a la Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz.
