So at this Spoon concert a couple of months ago, lead singer Britt Daniel yelled "Hotpocket!" at the end of an unrelated line in one of his songs ("The Way We Get By").

I posted this information the day after the concert on a messageboard and heard back that he had yelled it at different times in different songs in different cities. Somewhat amusing and baffling.

Just this morning I saw a reply to my thread:

In Austin, when Britt did his solo show at Emo's, he introduced Hot
Pockets as his sound guy.

The power of the collective on the Internet. Wow.

Now if I could only use the Internet for things other than gathering rock trivia... that would be fantastic.


  1. It's also a comedian thing. This comedian does a bit about Hot Pockets. Jim Gaffegan, if thats how you spell it.
