Setlist by Chris

I have been a FNM fan since 1989 when I was 10 years old.

I was a punky skateboarder kid and was worshipping the Chili Peppers 'Uplift Mofo Party Plan' album and heard from someone that this band Faith No More opened for the Peppers in 1987 which made me curious. Also I remember watching Axl Rose of all people kissing FNM's ass on MTV so I decided to buy 'The Real Thing' which had come out a few months earlier....

1989 saw a lot of great albums released. Nirvana put out 'Bleach' and Nine Inch Nails put out 'Pretty Hate Machine' and of course "The Real Thing' was released. After listening to track 1 'from out of nowhere' i was HOOKED...

1. Gentle Art of Making Enemies (great set opener)
2. Caffeine
3. Midlife Crisis
4. Zombie Eaters (a MUST)
5. The Crab Song
6. Chinese Arithmetic
7. Falling To Pieces
8. Mouth To Mouth
9. We Care A Lot
10. Kindergarten
11. Edge Of The World
12. Everything's Ruined
13. Epic
(This 3 song block can give Patton the chance to scream his head off, do his improv stuff etc)
14. Ugly In The Morning
15. Jizzlobber
16. Cuckoo For Caca
17. Introduce Yourself
18. The Real Thing
19. The Morning After (has not been played since 1990)
20. Be Aggressive
21. Why Do You Bother?
22. Land Of Sunshine
23. Get Out
24. From Out Of Nowhere (A MUST)

my fav tv performance is this performance on The Word in November 1992. Nirvana had an infamous performance on The Word a year earlier and this performance by FNM is even more legendary. Billy is totally into it and as usual for the AD tour, big Jim seems in another world. Patton has a lot of fun with the crowd as well.

  1. I'd much rather see them change it up from show to show since I intend on going to a few. Make use of that list of 48!!
