  • Covering a Cyndi Lauper song at Madonnarama
  • Their final show at Ralphs, when everyone in the backroom was on the stage singing past 2:30 a.m.
  • Their final show at the VFW getting the power shut off on them as they tried to play their 20+ song catalog. Then Chris Moore threatened to burn the VFW down.
  • Every out town gig was a blur of drugs, alcohol and women.
