PostSubject: What happened to "Bring It On"?   Sat Jun 02, 2012 6:02 am

They didn't play it at the Asbury Park show in December.... Haven't played it at all recently....

Does anyone know why they aren't playing it? I've been a fan for awhile and I'd say "Bring It On" is probably my favorite Gaslight song... I was there when they first played it live at the Wellmont Theatre Show, but now it's disappeared from their setlist....

It's very surprising considering they filmed a video for it and played it on national television... Does anyone have any insight? I miss it :-/

It's said on the blog that they will only play classic gaslight songs and the songs they have the most pleasure in. By playing these they want to thank the audience for supporting them and therefore giving something back the audience deserved, classic songs, better experience.
As I recall the last post on http://thegaslightanthem.tumblr.com

Listen to the American Slang release show... I think Bring It On got the best crowd response there?

I love it but it's probably one of my least favourite on AS.

i think sometime in relation to the show for the "45"-video, benny said that he hates songs after playing them on repeat for music videos. And that this happened with "bring it on".

Maybe this ?! rabbit

Bring It On is my favorite Gaslight song. That's sad that they don't play it live anymore. Sad

I wouldn't worry too much. I think they would still mix it in. The May shows and the Summer Tour are kinda like a restart of sorts for the live shows.

They might still play it! They change their set all the time.

Ryan and I have many things in common, but perhaps the most important thing we share is our love for this particular song. I've thought about this too.
Bring It On is my favorite song of all time

This song is amazing. They played QOLC at my show this year, would of loved to trade it for this or Spirit of Jazz.

I really wished they'd give Queen Of Lower Chelsea a break and swap in some of the (far superior) American Slang songs. QOLC is a good song, but it was never good live, in my opinion. And it's the weakest song on the record, anyway. It's a baffling choice, but I think it's mostly because Benny has said multiple times it's one of his favorites to play. Hence it'll likely stay.

You can have your opinion. It's just a complete dud live.

Yeah Ive ranted about this in another thread. It needs to be swapped out, as does She Loves you and DCSC. American Slang is wearing too but that will never be dropped. I hope they change things up next year and bring back Bring It On, Stay Lucky, Jazz etc...

unfortunately, I agree. LOVE the studio recording, but it simply doesn't translate well. One of the issues is Alex's backing vocals at the end.. they just sound terrible.

Bring it On needs to come back, and what about ORPHANS?

They always play QOLC when they play in London and it always gets a cheer for the 'hussle in London' line.

I wonder if Bring it on is maybe a reminder of bad times? same as they dont play 1930 a lot.
