Welcome to the Columbus Day edition of Mystery Jam Monday here at As usual we will be playing for an MP3 download, courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. The rules haven't changed: you need to correctly identify the song and the date to win. Post your guess in the comments. One guess per person per day (with the second “day” starting after I post the hint). A hint will be posted on Tuesday (if necessary) and the answer will be posted on Wednesday. Good luck...

Wednesday Answer: Looks like we have a third member joining Rabeldy and Pauly in the faculty lounge. Congrats to Bl002e for being first with the Columbus 7/15/00 "Disease." What could be more appropriate this week than Columbus and Disease? In any event, the Blog will be hosting a Bl002e-curated Mystery Jam sometime soon. See everyone on Monday...

lastubbe Dude, it's definitely a Bowie.

Not a clue as to where it could be from. Not sure with such a short clip how we could figure that out. Give us a clip of the main theme where Gordo implements the slap technique and it may be possible to get it down to an era.

I still remember my reaction in the law tha nightwhe they slipped into wmmggw. Awesome!! I also remember when relation that nigh when they stopped playing have mercy out of mango and dropped bug. Not awesome!!
, comment by MiguelSanchez
MiguelSanchez Wow, I let auto correct do way to much work in that last post
, comment by bl002e
bl002e Despite auto-correct mangling that, I agree. As jaw-droppingly awesome the segue into While My Guitar was, the whole Mango/Have Mercy/Bug debacle had the show leaving a bad taste in my mouth for a while afterward.'s show note regarding this moment is all too kind:

More like:

[3] The jam out of Mango included a segue into the opening chords of Have Mercy, which for no logical reason was aborted. A painfully long band discussion followed, raising expectations for what song would follow if Have Mercy was not chosen. Ultimately, Bug followed, disappointing approximately 93.2% of the audience.

I shit you not, that was one of the first two jams I checked out, and not because of the Columbus thing -- 7/25/99 Birds was the other, because my initial instinct was that it was a '99-00 Birds, and those two were the best of the, flock. But then the Columbus thing clicked because of the 7/23/99 jam, and DWD was the next one I listened to.

So great minds think alike, I suppose.
