Analysis and Explanation

Yes Please is well-known today for its wild performances in 2000. Matt's vocals were often a highlight of the show, as well as Chris' headbanging. Though written in 1996, it is believed that Yes Please was dropped from setlists by mid-1998 as the band had stopped performing Yes Please live by then, making no appearances in any 1998 or 1999 setlists. As well, though believed to have been performed live uncommonly in 1996 and 1997, no recording exists of Yes Please live from this era.

Yes Please was revived for setlist consideration around the time that the band had just revived Ashamed, another Sunburn b-side. Just a few days after Ashamed's return, Yes Please was debuted in late May 2000 and stuck around in setlists until the last week of the tour. Though not performed at every gig from that era, skipping several including the early July festivals, Lowlands Festival, and the majority of gigs in October and November 2000, Yes Please was performed often enough to be the third-most performed b-side in 2000, behind Agitated and Minimum

For 2001 Yes Please was gone, alongside nearly all b-sides and even some album tracks. It would take thirteen years before Yes Please was performed live again in Helsinki on 07/27/2013. Another three performances followed before Yes Please eventually disappeared again. It's likely that with enough fan attention the song has all the potential in the world to be put in setlists during "rarity gigs", though the fans have been asking for different songs instead, leading to Yes Please not making any appearances on the Drones Tour. Though it has not been performed since 2014, the band apparently have not given up on performing the song as it was a setlist option for the 2017 Shepherds Bush Empire show. Though not voted by fans to be included in the setlist, Muse played the first half of Yes Please anyways for the first time in three years before playing it again at Leeds Festival six days later. It would be played in its shortened form again (this time, closing a show for the first time since 2000) at the 2018 La Cigale show, even though it wasn't on the printed setlist nor a voting option.
