Analysis and Explanation
Man of Mystery is the third highest played cover song, and was played commonly from May to July 2007. When the band recorded the song for the NME Supermassive Selection was roughly around the time the song was played. In its last few performances in July it was played at every other gig. Perhaps it was a song the band had been rehearsing for a while and, when recording it for the NME promo disc, decided to play it live as well. After two performances in August the song was dropped from setlists, with the exception of one performance in March 2008. Interestingly this gig was when the band was rehearsing Uno beforehand. It is possible that the band intended to play Uno, but scrapped it at the last minute and replaced it with another uncommon song, Man of Mystery. This is entirely hypothetical, but this theory may explain its random setlist placement nearly a year after its last performance.
It is entirely possible the band may revisit the song, but there are no indications it may happen in the near future.
