Grey Daze began playing "Anything, Anything" live before the depature of Jonathan Krause and also performed it for a while after Chester Bennington and Mace Byers were replaced by Jodi Wendt and Dave Sardegna in 1998. When Sean and Chester formed Bucket Of Weenies in 2005, the song became part of their setlists and was performed until their final show in 2006.
Kerry Rose, their manager, mentioned one concert in particular which was memorable for him: "We did a small tour into Southern California, including a fantastic show at the Whiskey a Go Go on the Sunset Strip.[...] It's a fantastic - very famous venue, and they have a killer sound system. There was 3-400 people at the show and they really got into the band. When they did "Anything, Anything", the place went nuts. The sound guy thought it was better than the original version. I just remember it being a particularly good show."
According to Samantha's book, Chester proposed to her during the show Grey Daze opened for Seven Mary Three in March 1996.
