while guns n roses isnt really metal, i would suggest welcome to the jungle. everyone has heard of it and its in your face. thats how you win a school battle of the bands. you play something everyone knows. if it was a real BoB you could play real metal but for school you should do something like gnr

O thats cool if you just do it for fun :cool: Yeah Lamb of God is a good suggestion. Or maybe Holy Wars by Megadeth or A.I.R. by Anthrax. Hopefully there are a lot of teenyboppers in the crowd so you can scare the living hell out of them with real music

If you are gonna be playing to some kids who wanna mosh... Pantera... 5 Minutes Alone... Mouth for War... Cowboys from Hell... Walk... anything off of VDoP or FBD...

^^ Like he said, but I would say play Regular People (Conceit) off of Panteras Vulger Display of Power. The riff on that (yeah, you know which riff i'm talking about) will get ANYONE going.

I could list off loads of great real metal songs...but I'm actually suggest something completely different. If you wanna scare people, have fun, play some heavy music AND be in with a chance of winning, play a song that most kids will know, something like Green Day...only sing it all in death metal screams. And generally make it sound like a metal song.

Theres a metal band in our town who did a metal cover of the friends theme once...it was great cos everyone knew the words, and it left all the chavs who come to gigs and stand around looking terrified. Hehe.

do a jam to some heavy songs
For example, Amon Amarth - Victorius March

just a suggestion

Go for Iron Maiden, let people know their classics ;)

Aces High or the Trooper would be great for this, or maybe a long version with multiple songs.

Just do Crazy Train by Ozzy, it's a well known metal classic, that if played right will get you lots of applause!

If you wanted to REALLY scare the living sh*t out of people, dress up in black and play ERFAVC by cannibal corpse, im not even going to say the full title for fear of getting banned. nobody will be able to understand the lyrics, but the name alone scares me. then again, no school would let you play it, you cant even buy CC CDs in my country. BTW, im not a CC fan, i personally think they need serious, professional help.

Play some Iron Maiden, since people might actually recognize some of those songs.

04-05-2006, 02:21 PM
Slayer - Raining Blood !
That song is classic metal.. with some fun riffs.. and at the end all you gotta do is go crazy with your whammy bar like your watching angelina jolie and playing with your self ; )

Puco
04-05-2006, 06:51 PM
Iron Maiden - Aces High :D

or if you only have one guitarist

Dream Theater - Lie

Next_Hendrix
04-10-2006, 11:07 AM
I say either Angels don't kill by Children of Bodem if you can pull it off, or A Rose for Sharyn by Killswitch Engage. Both will get the crowds vote.

at my school, playing more than 3 chords isnt cool :P

try something thats popular now, like trivium or avenge 7fold, so people would recognise it. not much point in doing an unknown song at a botb.

Black Dahlia Murder - Miasma

FadingRoots
04-13-2006, 01:56 AM
Ace of Spades by Motorhead would be okay, but for a great one...

Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You by Spinal Tap! Anyone who's seen Spinal Tap will love it, and anyone who hasn't... well, its a great song anyway.

Or if your singer's up to it... A Touch Of Evil by Judas Priest. THE NOTE will blow anyone away.

Other ideas:

We're Not Gonna Take It - Twisted Sister
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida - Iron Butterfly (all 17 minutes of it)
Rock You Like A Hurricane - Scorpions
Eagle Fly Free - Helloween (amazing bass solo, amazing guitar solos, amazing drum solo)

a really nice metal song that has a good solo not to hard to play is I'm Broken - Pantera, or another easy metal song with an easy solo is Hand of Blood - Bullet for my valentine

Synyster Gates
04-16-2006, 10:56 AM
i say hand of blood 9 people have frekin suggested that song so iit must be perfect hahah

Peace sells by Megadeth

FearRetribution
04-16-2006, 11:43 AM
11th Hour by Lamb of God could go down nicely, all depends on the crowd that'll be there. You could try a metal song that alot of people (even if they're not into metal) will know, such as Ace of Spades, or something heavier like Angel of Death or Raining Blood.

Chancelor101
04-16-2006, 01:57 PM
im thinking about 11th hour, me and the other guitarist play that together all the time already

04-18-2006, 06:56 PM
Oops, I Did It Again - CoB

aww man i heard that the other day...fooking hilarious

either go with tht for the comedy factor

or play cowboys from hell - pantera - gets every metalhead pumped

something by trivium like like light to flies or pull harder would really get people goin as well....

diablo_man
04-20-2006, 08:03 PM
Black magic by Slayer. sweet song metal heads will love and not metal heads willjam too as well.
but my favorite to see would be "no more Tears" by ozzy, everyone loves the bass riff, a lot of people know it and its got intense energy. or bark at the moon for same sort of reasons

Rattlehead.90
04-20-2006, 08:56 PM
Pull Harder... by Trivium or Hangar 18 by Megadeth. Play all of Hangar 18 though, because the solos are fantastic and perfect for performing a guitar dual.

The antechrist
04-22-2006, 07:39 PM
I'd say disciple, raining blood, or seasons in the abyss by slayer or play some venom that'll fairly piss the r.e teachers off or play some pantera i'd recommend walk or cowboys.

Punk as atticus
04-22-2006, 07:45 PM
walk by pantera
power of i and i by shadows fall
are you dead yet by children of bodom
fire it up by black label society
the trooper by iron maiden
sad but true by metallica
symphony of destruction by megadeth

those'd all do well

~~cemetary~~
04-23-2006, 03:04 PM
it would be cool if both bands did the same song so you could compare how good the bands were in general
