alright, i'll take a stab at it...

skull (sebadoh)
lorelei (the pogues)
ticket to the moon (elo)
lazy line painter jane (belle and sebastian)
bottle up and explode (elliott smith)
lost in the supermarket (the clash)
hold on (tom waits)
i'm gonna be 500 miles (the proclaimers, but done in a manic violent femmes style)
all tomorrow's parties (the velvet underground)
kiss off (violent femmes)
(i always wanted to do the "one, one, one 'cause you left me..." part live)

encore:
misunderstood (wilco)
(y'know, with the repeated refrain of "i'd like to thank you all for nothing/ nothing/ nothing at all")
