  1. Fame
The Song:

"Fame" is a David Bowie song on his album, Young Americans.

Played live 5 times:
Earliest known live version: September 26, 2006
Latest known live version: September 25, 2008

For a few weeks in 2006, Beck took to rapping "Hell Yes" while the band played the famous music from "Fame." A real live mash-up! This would also usually include bits of other songs as well sometimes.

As far as I know, Beck's never sung more of "Fame" than just the "faaaaaame" part. The band has a good go at it though.

After playing this mashup at a few special gigs in September/October 2006, they rested it.

Then 2 years later, when they did it once more at a special coffee shop gig in El Paso, the report said it was just a "Fame" and "Another One Bites The Dust" medley.
