Does anyone know if this song was ever played live, and if so, has a recording ever surfaced?

Can't understand why it wasn't on ignition. I know the reason they give, but I still think it's a great song

I don't think it's been played live--they don't seem to have much of a history of playing outtakes and B-sides at shows.

They didn't put it on ignition because they didnt want people to think they we're a religious band, even though its not a religious song they were worried stupid people would think it was.

And since they never intended for it to be released they have never played it live.

This is why it was left off Ignition:

"[D]: We just didn‘t think it was as good as the other songs and it was kinda‘ like a Blue‘s Brothers reference. We weren‘t seriously religious and so we were debating in the band that it might come across as a religious song. It wasn‘t, though. It was the farthest thing from it. Like in the vain of a ‘Bad Habit‘. The guy in the song is kooky and whacked out. I should re-write that about the Washington sniper now, huh? So that one was left off and we never did anything with it. That was that one…."

I think I did see a picture of a setlist (from the Ignition tour, I guess) with "Mission" written on it.

But I doubt it's been played more than a few times.
