A segueing of Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and his own 'Stand Up Tall' offer those more rock-inclined the chance to dance.

It's a case of give the crowd a riff they know and they will dance.

"If you're soft," he tells the crowd, "don't stand at the front, this is no fucking joke."

'Dirtee Disco' isn't one to be scared of though and fans wig out to a sample of DJ Kool's 'Let Me Clear My Throat.'

Older number 'Jus A Rascal' doesn't get the reception newbies 'Dance Wiv Me' and 'Holiday' do, but a live band add as much as they can to the showing.

The man even manages to fit in an encore with 'Bonkers' making sure the BBC cameramen get their best audience footage of the weekend.

Reading Festival 2010 continues with sets from The Libertines and Arcade Fire.
