Tess Lynch: This video smells like old hair and gorp. Look at that sea of Caucasian ponytails bobbing along to "a crystal haze, the never-ending coral maze," dancing in sweet, stupid ignorance as someone taped them on a 15-pound camcorder. My favorite comment: "I snorted a bunch of meth at a Phish concert once and danced 'til there were holes in my socks. That was some pure shit." Bet that was during "The Squirming Coil," brah. Don't get caught by the Makisupa Policeman!

Phish and Grantland.com
Phish made it's way on to the semi-regular Grantland.com segment of YouTube HOF, but in the not so favorable sub genre of 'Favorite Embarrassing Songs and Performances.' It's good fun, and well, it was the early 90s which is about as ridiculous as it gets. Link. For those unfamiliar with Grantland, it features sports and pop culture columns by Bill Simmons and Chuck Klosterman among dozens of others. Good stuff.
