Staind frontman Aaron Lewis, despite appeals to the crowd, was tattled on by the small group in attendance at The Bottle and Cork in Dewey Beach, Delaware after performing the hit song, “It’s been a While” twice within the same set. The crowd still popped for it and sang along, and the performance was still solid, but near the end of the song Lewis realized his mistake. He offered this up to the crowd:
“You know what I’m realizing right this second? That I’m drunk enough that I should be playing ‘Outside’ right now, and instead I’m playing a fucking song I already played tonight. Which means I might be slightly overserved. So should I play the fucking song that I was supposed to be playing the whole fucking time? Because maybe I might have smoked a little bit too much weed tonight. I will say that’s a first. That’s a first right there… I’ll hear about that one tomorrow. Actually, I’m gonna call you out and we’ll see whether you guys out me tomorrow for that. So I guess we’ll just see how much y’all love me, ’cause no one else except everybody in this room just saw that happen, so you can give me a free pass. It is entirely and totally up to you, so we’ll see whether I’m hiding my face in shame tomorrow, ’cause I have definitely seen a whole lot of cameras recording this, which… super comfortable.”
