NOTE: "We Are The Worms" was not played past the intro since it was banned from the radio due to copyright restrictions. It still made it to #16, but probably would've gone higher had they not been forced to stop playing it halfway through the year. (The reason for "Eat My Shorts" being an excerpt has nothing to do with copyright problems, it's just that the show was running long and something needed to be trimmed down.)
