This would be the perfect place for them to cover a certain Catholics song.

Well... they didn't play it apparently.

But opening with U-mass and closing with Planet sounds like a good time!

Basically the idea is that the face that Frank refers to throughout the song is the Wal-Mart smiley face.

I donít know if there are Wal-Marts where you are, and I donít know if the company still has the smiley face logo, but thatís the theory.

Since they were playing at the Wal-Mart center it seemed to be as good a place as any to bust out that song.

Not sure how Frank feels in 2018 about Wal-Mart.

The song was written after FBF noticed the ubiquity of Wal-Mart semi trucks on the highways late at night as he and The C's were driving from town to town in their outer space igloo van on their DIY tours...
