One Question Interviews: Murder City Devils

Coady (Murder City Devils)

SPB: Is there any particular older song that is frequently requested but you’d like to put to rest?

Coady: "Boom Swagger Boom" is probably the song that people comment on us not playing the most. We've always had a policy in this band that any one of us has veto power over the set list. If someone doesn't want to play a song, we don't. We want to have a good time so that everyone else can, too! We wrote a lot of songs during the lifespan of this band, so we never really saw a need to play the ones that don't feel good anymore. We used to play no more than 8 songs max at a show. When I look down at the set list and see 18-20 songs nowadays, I don't feel bad at all for leaving one or two out! We'll save them for the all-star jam at our rock n roll hall of fame induction.  

Editor's Note: This 1QI took place a few years ago but was mis-filed and only recently discovered in the archives.
