Usually played before "Sunburn" during Showbiz tour, circa 2000 (eg. Bizarre Festival 2000 [watch]). Played less often during Absolution tour (e.g. Islington Carling Academy 2003, after "Bliss"). Reappeared in late-2007, played after "Map of the Problematique" (e.g. Sydney Entertainment Centre 2007 (watch)), albeit in a lower key, due to different tuning.

The 'solo' was performed using the Whammy pedal during the Showbiz tour, and was performed using the Kaoss Pad for the latter part of the Black Holes and Revelations tour. The riff sounds somewhat similar to that of "Gratitude" by the Beastie Boys.
