How about a cover of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass?"

I sign this petition under protest, I think they should whip out something newer.

All they need to do is have one of those performances where every other act on that stage is fucking embarrassed (i.e. like they did every night when they were opening for the Chilli Peppers 11 years ago, or at most of the festivals they've played, or Live Earth) and it will be more of a battle cry for rock n roll then a 3 minute screamer with silly indecipherable lyrics could ever do

The more I think about it, the more it seems like Walk is the likely candidate. It was a bigger hit than the two followup singles and works the best for a standalone performance because how it builds itself up into this huge fucking arena anthem within the first minute or so.

They were told not to do the "fuck you I won't do what you tell me" part--they did it anyway.

They should play Butterflies or Podunk.

I assume this is what you're referring to.
Never saw that before... that was pretty cool! Nice-looking stage set-up too.

MTM was in the movie Real Steel-which BTW I hope gets some recognition at the Academy awards. Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Kevin Durand, Anthony Mackie all gave great performances!
Especially Dakota Goyo-kid can act!!!


MTM ,great song! And yes... album rocks!

I've been hearing a lot of inspirational stories about Walk that makes me appreciate the song more. So now I'm keeping faith alive for a Walk+White Limo medley. Come on guys, Adele's going to win the big prize (going by the commercial), so might as well make the most of the stage.

I think someone should get laid.

White Limo would be awesome but I don't care if they play Rope/Walk, I love those songs and I'm going to enjoy it anyway
