The song is Jerry Garcia's 1973 live version of the Bob Dylan classic "Positively 4th Street". Why was this song the perfect choice? You only have to look as far as the first line of the lyrics to find out:
"You've got a lot of nerve..."
As I was literally having the nerve extracted from my molar, I listened to Dylan's eloquent public dismissal of someone who had a lot of nerve to say they are his friend. It's not clear if the song is about a specific person or a group, though personally I believe it's about a woman who scorned old Zimmy. We'll never know for sure, but looking at the lyrics, it's pretty obvious that Bob was pretty irritated. And Garcia's melodic take, accompanied by Merl Saunders on the organ, just kicks things up a notch. Check it out:
