The following collection of performances are comprised of both pantomime performances as well as full on live performances with a small amount of music videos but mostly performances. Each performance will also include the show title where the segment originally aired and any performance that are detectably live will be noted as such at the end of each track listing. A special bonus, throughout the three volume over three hour collection are interesting trivia shown on occasion as text about the band/artist and the historical impact of the song itself.
