The performance on September 4, 1997 took place at the annual MTV Video Music Awards (and broadcast live from) in New York City, New York, USA.

  1. "The Beautiful People"



Satellite version


  • During the original live broadcast of the opening speech, the entire word "assholes" was censored. The newer version only censored part of the word (holes), and featured alternate camera angles also replacing a cut of Zim Zum giving the crowd the middle finger.
  • The second version of this performance can be found, unedited, on the MTV Video Music Awards - Rock dvd.
