I love pretending sexual assault and domestic abuse allegations don't exist and cringey 90s metal!

Live tracks and instrumentals DO NOT count as rarities! They're boring when they come as b-sides and they're boring when you stick them on an album with no rhyme or reason. Why these songs? What do they gain from being stripped of vocals? What about these live recordings is special, beyond that they show how you can play really well live, but can't sing so good?
