Notes

This was not actually broadcast on TV, but was leaked from the channel, most probably by an employee. The band rehearsed both songs they were scheduled to perform on Saturday Night Live. The band also recorded some trailers for the show with US basketball star, Charles Barkley. This is Pat Smear's first known public performance with the band.
