Shit, I’ve known that for ten years.

[“Nutbush City Limits”; Bob Seger (1976)]

On Bob Seger’s1 1976 Live Bullet album, the song “Nutbush2 City Limits” features an extended breakdown in the middle, time enough for Bob to goose up Detroit’s Cobo Hall audience a little bit. Again.

“As I told everybody last night I was reading Rolling Stone where they said Detroit audiences are the greatest rock-n-roll audiences in the world.”
(applause, eleven second pause)
“I thought to myself, ‘Shit, I’ve known that for ten years.’”

Bob’s second (?) run-through was then temporarily immortalized on batches of t-shirts. Spoken when confronted with the obvious.
