Cover Songs 1992-present
...the unreleased ones performed live.
Most shows had multiple covers. I've tried to only list each song once, and the earliest known live appearance, for space reasons, though some were played at other shows listed. Original artist, where known, in parentheses. A full concert listing is forthcoming.
