Welcome to the 31st installment of the DeadTest™ collection! It’s time to assess your knowledge of the band’s setlist structure. That is, the sequencing of songs during live performances.

Although The Grateful Dead’s setlist remained fluid throughout the long strange trip, there were some standard song pairings and positions within the band’s typical two-set format. You’ll need to know them to get a passing grade.
