N*E*R*D performed hundreds of shows backed by my band Spymob, and nearly every one of them closed with the song Lapdance.
It’s the track that broke N*E*R*D, and it’s a monster. It tore the room apart every night. Lapdance was my favorite N*E*R*D track to record, and my favorite to perform. So I always looked forward to the end of the show.
Here’s Lapdance performed live, captured on home movies and broadcast footage over the course of five years, tracing the band from our first club gig to the humongous European festivals we’d play just a couple years later.
Guests include The Black Eyed Peas, Justin Timberlake, Dizzee Rascal, and my on-point drum tech, Chris Sasman.
I included snippets of killer drum covers of the track by great players you’ve probably never heard but should.
