    General CommentMy friends and I were in the bar of a bowling alley, we noticed that the single with this song was in the jukebox. We knew what it was. We speculated over what big assholes we'd be if we queued it up. We didn't do it. A few minutes later, we see that we didn't have to. Somebody else dropped a quarter for 23 minutes of music.
    So it plays through and my friend and I are jamming out on all the coolest parts and weedling along to the guitar parts vocally, nobody else seems to care. We wonder who put this on, who would've been that cool, and it gets to Die.
    And Die plays
    for several minutes.
    Eventually an aggitated drinker gets up and shakes the jukebox, he specify's to everyone around him "it's skipping". Another guy approaches saying "don't worry about it, it's almost over" (obviously the guy who put in to hear it.) and the aggitated guy gives it another rough shake, actually causing the jukebox to give up and skip to the next one.
    It's obvious why it would've frustrated people, seriously who wants to listen to those three drawn out notes for almost ten minutes? And by that point all the most enjoyable parts have been long over so we didn't mind the guy displaying his impatience, it made for good show. We found it very amusing.

    General CommentIt is cool but it kind of pisses me off, because all the sudden you'll hear this really cool riff or song and you'll be like hell yeah this is awesome, then 5 seconds later is flickers to the next one :(

    General Commentthere's probably mostly pieces of songs and riffs they were just toying around with. I doubt many of these were ever full-fledged songs. Then again, "Disconnected" became "Aeroplane Flies High," and SP were prolific as fuck, so we'll never know...
