well, apparently they played We're Getting a Divorce last night, along with Contender, 1930, Angry Johnny, and We Came To Dance, so at least they're keeping the SoS songs around a little bit longer

well, after watching the video, it appears that this was the final performance of this song. the video starts with brian saying "maybe...forever. we're gonna play it once, for you guys, and that's it. no more. this is it."

then some guy tries to hand him a beer, and he says "I don't drink, you gotta give it to him (Alex L). i got coca cola". so i guess it's confirmed that he doesn't drink. and he called beer "Jersey champagne" which i thought was funny

also, very good final performance of this song. i'm thinking in the future, the only SoS songs they might bust out will be We Came To Dance, Angry Johnny, or possibly Drive or 1930 if you're lucky. but he even played 1930 with standard chords at this show, even though it's one of their most punk songs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0Hnay_R0uM&feature=channel

dude put up 12 songs from the show, pretty good quality

Oh well at least I got up on stage and sang part of this with Brian and a bunch of other lads at the London show. Still kinda bummed though. But you can understand them leaning towards the newer material as thats what is getting them known and bigger and bigger.

Yeah, they didn't play this at the Mad Hatter show, I'm pretty upset about it, especially if they really never play it again, one of my favs for sure.

yeah, definitely. i love how they play it live too. there's so much energy, and brian gets pissed off when he starts singing it. his voice is nice and angry as he sings the first two verses

that sucks. wonder why not? that seems like it'll be one of the few from SoS that they'll still play for a while. it is pretty much straight up punk though

concerning were getting a divorce, i always thought the song was about individuallity, to me at least, since it opens with zombies, and closes with
" its alright man, im only beeding man, stay hungry stay free and do the best you can"
kinda like if you were a zombie, to go against what your supposed to do ( staying hungry) and do what you want ( the best you can)

speaking to Brian last night after the show apparently the reason they dropped divorce completely was because every time they played it people got hurt.

"Stay hungry, stay free, and do the best you can"

"Stay Hungry"-Twisted Sister
"Stay Free"-The Clash

i think the Clash one is reasonable, but the Twisted Sister one seems like a stretch. what are the odds Brian's a huge Twisted Sister fan?

I'm ok with them not playing this song anymore, because every time I hear it now I only think of the guy on YouTube playing air guitar to it. That kind of ruined the song for me.

Haha! I know exactly what you are talking about. The even funnier thing is, the guy is so serious about it all.

I give the guy credit. He's got disabilities and challenges that many of us don't. If he's passionate about music and expresses it by playing air guitar, who are we to judge. I think it's cool. Assuming we're all talking about the same video.....
