Watch Faith No More’s Surprise Record Store Day Show At Amoeba
The reunited alt-metal greats Faith No More are working on a new album, their first in 18 years, and they released a new single called “Motherfucker” as part of the Record Store Day Black Friday festivities. They also marked that particular occasion by playing a secret five-song set at Amoeba Records, in their San Francisco hometown. This was FNM’s first American show in four years, and the setlist included “Motherfucker” and another new song called “Superhero.” But the other three songs, intriguingly enough, were relative obscurities, including two from the band’s pre-Mike Patton era. FNM just happens to be the first band I ever saw live, and though the version that played Amoeba over the weekend looks nothing like the one I squinted to see from the stadium upper deck at the July 1992 Guns N’ Roses/Metallica show, they still banged like a machine. Also worth noting: The gimp from the band’s recent press shot was once again a presence. Watch fan-made video of the entire set below.

“Is the gimp Chuck or Jim?” is a truly great stage heckle. High fives to that guy.
