“We used to play this when we first got together. It was a very old song, and we made a demo of it very early on, but for some reason we didn’t include it on Come On Pilgrim or Surfer Rosa. By the time we got around to Doolittle, we said, ‘Hey, let’s rerecord Here Comes Your Man.’
“Funnily enough, we never played it until 2004. We always thought it was too poppy – which is probably why it got played on the radio and MTV. I guess we were just trying to keep our coolness; we didn’t want to give in too easily. But when we got back together, we came around to playing it.
