Another YouTube music video kick has led to me watching a bunch of live performance clips from Letterman. There are plenty of good recent performances, but there are also some great blasts from the past:
The Presidents of the United States of America performing "Lump":
REM with "Radio Free Europe" -- in 1983!
Green Day's first time on TV, playing "Basketcase":
The Flaming Lips with a cool version of "She Don't Use Jelly":
And even if you don't like it, this this clip of 311 performing "Down" is oh so 90s:
