As I said to my mates the other day, I have been in my current tiny band for nearly 2 years, and in that time we've ditched 8 songs that we worked really hard on. We spent money practicing them and recording demos. People told us they liked them, one dude even requests one of them lol, but we can't play them now. We're just not into them.
You can't yell at a band to play album tracks from 20 years ago. There are probably thousands of Muse songs that we'd all absolutely adore that will never see the light of day. Nobody can claim ownership of art like that. Literally, all we can do is take it (or leave it) for what it is.
