In a gig in Tallin, Estonia, Greg started yelling to the audience something like "I want something that you have! I want to have a hot dog!". Greg and Brian started counting the money they had in their pockets, and it appeared they only had few cents (they use crowns in Estonia). The crowd started throwing lots of coins to the stage. Greg said that "this would be a nice idea to write a song about", and the band started improvising something like two guitars playing solos and Bobby and Jay playing the rhythm. Greg began make up the lyrics to something that sounded like punk-rap. The thing went like "...and then the crowd started throwing pennies at me, but all I wanted was just a fucking hot dog." Eventually someone brought a hot dog to the stage, and someone threw a bag of ketchup to Greg. The show continued with Greg eating and singing at the same time.
One night during the American leg of the STF Tour they decided to change the format of their show. Normally, they played four songs in a block, paused for breath and then launched into another four-song block. But that night they left it up to Greg to decide when to pause, and he didn't pause! Jay: "We played 37 songs straight through, and were done in about 45 minutes. We didn't have any more songs, so what could we do? We started taking requests, then played new songs that we only had half done. After that show I said to Greg, 'Don't ever do that again!'".
