Wow, I never knew they played this awesome song live! Found it out today, heh... This is a song that I would never expect them to play live, but they obviously have. How many times, and when?

Oh man, this is so cool! I wish they would make more songs like this (and maybe play live)... longer, interesting songs. 'Caus this song is really good. What do you guys think?


Ah, pure awesomeness!!

Im not sure, but I guess they played it in argentina in 99. They also played feelings and noodles made a kick ass solo at the end of the song

Yes they played it sometimes during the Americana tour (The second youtube video is from the Pukkelpop '99 festival in Belgium) and during most of the European leg of the Conspiracy of one tour (The first video is from that tour, Bercy France '01). Don't remember if they did on the American part of the tour either.

It's one of their best songs in my opinion, if not the best. And brilliant live. Wish they would play it more.

I thought they played it a bit during the Ixnay tour, but it didn't go over very well, so they stopped. Apparently I was wrong.

Either way, every video I've seen of them playing Pay the Man is amazing. By far, it's their best live song. I actually prefer the live version to the studio, which is usually not the case for me.

awww mannnnn..... i never realized they ever played this live! I want soooo bad to watch it, but i can't right now because i am in class. :( It will be the first thing i do when i get back to my room. (can't you tell i am a dedicated student?) this is one of my favorite songs! I spent i don't know how long mastering the intro to this song! I would just about kill to see them do this live!

Pay the Man is an amazing song! Definitely not "typical Offspring." It's very unique and it's one of my favorites.

not really. they actually play the end a lot faster. the first 5 minutes seem unchanged to me.
