From a bootleg recording of the New Year's Eve Show in 1998 at Tramps in New York City we find the Johns, the Dans and Jim O'Connor battling it out for musical supremacy. While Jim O'Connor is apparently the only man standing by the end, it appears that only the audience is the clear winner in this ugly and brutal contest.
  • This track was titled by a fan in the liner notes of a concert bootleg given to John Flansburgh in 2000, and the name stuck for its TMBG Unlimited release.
