Someone earlier mentioned 'Yellow Ledbetter' for PJ, I'd say with their variety and the rareness of some of their most powerful/popular songs it'd be impossible to choose a single song for them, but if you've ever been to a show where they played 'Jeremy', there's no question.

And on that note, "Meet Me in the Basement" has become kind of a big thing for Broken Social Scene.

Anthems may have been overplayed, but I would also add it to the list.

You'll hear it eventually, I'm sure. I got it in the two shows I've been to - it was by far the best moment in the first one with Emily singing, but only meh with Lisa in the second one.

You don't understand. Kevin Drew had to go and be a jerk about it. "This next song has become sort of an anthem of ours." and I fucking flipped, because they hadn't been playing Anthems lately, so I'm all pumped ready for them to fucking bring it and then..."Meet Me in the Basement" began .

And Yellow Ledbetter has a big fan connection, as they almost always play it as the final song of the night, with the house lights up, and it ends with the band and the crowd staring at McCready alone on stage ripping some sick guitar solo.
i think with PJ and Radiohead they don't have a "Streets" because they vary their sets. with the '2 you know Streets is a lock every night. when i saw Pearl Jam i would said that Black was probably the emotional centrepiece... it didn't exactly have the crowd in awe like Alive (which is phenomenal live) but it was almost draining, in a way.

this is a good point.

good call. i think this would be the case even seeing PF tribute bands.

that it has... it's awesome live (and a better song than Anthems if you ask me).

Lisa Lobsinger is soooooooo hot

all in all though i don't think there's a live band on the planet who have a song that does what Streets does... and for all the criticism of Vertigo Streets... it was still truly an out-of-body moment for me, speech and slogans or not.
