The Rebel Black Dot Autobiographical Song o' the Day

Commentary: Recorded live on stage at the Metropolis, then the temporary home of the Flint Local 432, on 30 December 2004. R.B.D.S.O.T.D. can't get much more autobiographical than this.
Lead singer: "Alright, this song's called 'Our Best Song Ever.' Oh, wait, no, no, it's not! Because, uh, I forgot. This is the special time in our show, it's titled: What's Eating The Last Angry Man? That's The Last Angry Man, my beloved older brother. Now the thing about The Last Angry Man is that no matter what or where you are, he's always got a problem with something. There's always something that just pisses him off. This is completely unrehearsed, this is not pre-planned. Last Angry Man, what's eating you?"

Saxophone player: "So, I'm trying to enjoy the rock show. It's fun! It's fun for us. It's fun for you. And I got somebody over here talking smack about ramen noodles. They're cheap! They taste like cardboard! What more do you want?!"

Lead singer: "The Last Angry Man! Yes! That was better than I could have imagined."
