Ooh I like this idea. The "you worry" babbling during She in Chicago is fantastic. His rants on the American Idiot tour were great, too.

But really, anything that's not "JOY JOY JOY JOY JOY JOY JOY," in the middle of one of the darkest songs they've ever done, lyrically.

He did multiple versions of the 1994 babbling after they got back from their second European tour, I can send you them if you want. I love them all! :D

What about the one where Billie says he wants Steve Jobs to die? That wasn't motivational

His anti-technology rant annoyed me. It was hypocritical. And it seems even worse now, coming from a guy who uses Instagram!

I personally enjoy his rants. The contnt isn't always great, but it's nice to hear him talking about something he feels passionatly about.

I remember another '94 one during "She" where he was talking about his pet rock John, and another where he was talking about getting his bear out of the closet, idk am I stupid or did those really happen?

I never really pay attention to his rants.  To me, they all blend together, especially on this tour.  It'd be like asking me what live version of Know Your Enemy I like best. :lol:

Why do people think that rant during Letterbomb is against technology? He's talking about the horrible things we see in the news, not how we see/hear the news.

 

 

Also I love the anit-technology rant on Static Age and the gay marriage during KFAD during one 99 Revolutions's show

Ooh, I love that one. :wub:

Can't link to the video from here, but from one of the 21CB-era club shows:

"Y'know, we haven't decided if we're gonna play the whole album or not, fuck it, should we play the whole fuckin' album? Y'know, you never know what the future's gonna bring? I mean, I don't have a fuckin' clue. I don't know what the fuck I'm doing, I don't know where the fuck I'm going. I never fucking do. But sometimes it's important to think about the future but stay in the fuckin' moment at the same time. So it's about nights like this to create memories like this. It's about Franz Ferdinand playing across the street. Hallelujah, hallelujah!"

He proceeds to sing "Viva la Gloria!", and while he butchers the lyrics his voice is in top form. While the whole thing is kinda cringingly embarrassing and incoherent, it also seems incredibly genuine compared to later rants, and for some reason it's stuck with me. That's also my fave live performance of VLG.

I LOVE the "you worry" rant during She. I'll have to look up some more rants at some point and see if I find a better one.
