Festival 8: What Album Will Phish Play on Halloween? [MTV News]
Of the remaining albums, it’s probably reasonable to eliminate all of the metal (which means Metallica’s Master of Puppets and Black Sabbath’s Paranoid can take a walk) and hip-hop (say goodbye to the Beastie Boys’ Hello Nasty). Since the newest album the group has ever covered was Talking Heads’ Remain in Light, it seems unlikely they’d roll out anything too new (like Radiohead’s Kid A, Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot or MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular).
Any of the remaining albums could probably get the nod. The Newsroom’s vote? Go ahead and jam on Purple Rain, boys. You’ve earned it.
