Welcome to the 298th edition of Phish.Net's Mystery Jam Monday: the fifth of five October editions, and (hopefully) the hardest of the month. The winner will receive an MP3 download code courtesy of our friends at / Nugs.Net. To win, be the first person to identify the song and date of all five mystery clips – these clips are connected by a theme, which should help to narrow the search, but it needn't be part of the correct answer. Each person gets one guess to start – if no one guesses correctly, I will post a hint on Tuesday around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET, after which each person gets one more guess before I reveal the correct answer on Wednesday. Good luck!

Hint: George Orwell's last novel PLUS Pearl Jam's first album = ????

Answer: Serious congratulations to @WFORWUMBO, who claimed his second MJM win, and simultaneously bludgeoned the blog, seemingly poised to claim an ever-so-rare victory, by corectly identifying this week's 5 mystery clips: the Tweezer from 11/23/94, David Bowie from 4/24/94, Weekapaug Groove from 10/25/94, the 11/3/94 Split Open And Melt, and Mike's Song from 12/31/94, all connected by the theme: 1994. Incidentally these are all awesome jams, well worth checking out if you're unfamiliar with any. Next week's MJM, the first of the month, will be a pedestrian walk in the park, compared to this week's labyrinth. Please take it easy on my pal, @ucpete, since he'll be the one pitching you the slow, over-the-plate softball, providing the opportunity for many of you to be the first to hit that ball out of the park. Have fun, and thanks Pete.

HarborSeal Oh my gosh. Every single one of these sounds familiar, but I can't place any. I hope this survives till the hint.

12_29_97_4eva I am quite pleased I had the theme before the hint, and quite displeased that even still I can't identify all the jams. Curses!

wforwumbo In order:

11/23/94 Tweezer
4/24/94 David Bowie
10/25/94 Weekapaug Groove
11/3/94 Split Open And Melt
12/31/94 Mike's Song

The theme is obviously jams from 1994.

mcgrupp81 This is all wrong. The code for unlimited lives in the NES 8-bit Contra game is Spring Fall Summer Fall Holiday, not Fall Spring Fall Fall Holiday.
