The Rebel Black Dot Song of the Day: SKAfter Party

Reel Big Fish, "The Set Up (You Need This)" (live) from Our Live Album Is Better Than Your Live Album, Disc 1: More Shtick Than You Can Shake a Stick At (The Last Angry Man)

Skammentary: It is banter like this—R.B.F.'s the best in the business—that helps to make the title of their live album less of a boast & more of a bold but truthful assertion. Their live album is better than most any other band's live album & their live show contains more shtick than at which you can shake a stick, proverbially.
Aaron Barrett: "This song's called 'The Set Up.' It's about, uh—what the fuck is this song about, anyway?"

Scott Klopfenstein: "I've never understood, actually, what the hell this song is fucking about."

Barrett: "I really don't know. I really—let's think about it and we'll talk afterwards."

Klopfenstein: "O.K."

Barrett: "Try and figure this thing out."
