Eternally Missed (live)
This page contains a list of all known performances of Eternally Missed.
Analysis and Explanation
Eternally Missed was performed just three times, although it may have been performed a fourth as well (the Murifest performance on 08/16/2002 has no known setlist). At the time, the band viewed the song as one of their finest and were keen to show it off at the last few dates of 2002. Their opinion had changed in the studio, with Matt once saying he thought the song wasn't even good enough to be a b-side. Thankfully, however, the song was released as the b-side to Hysteria, with the band never playing the song live again.
Due to the band's lack of love for this song, it is safe to say the song will never be heard live again outside of these very few performances. Because of this, it stands as one of the rarest live songs. Regardless of the band's beliefs, the fans highly appreciate the song; in a poll of 500 fans conducted in November 2015, out of a total thirty songs that had not been played since The Resistance era, fans voted Eternally Missed as the eleventh most requested song to make a return to setlists.
