we want a song that people will know, so theyll get into us if they dont know our original material. we want something popular, were thinking a boxcar racer song, or maybe even (i hope it doesnt come odwn to it though) a fall out boy song

Bad Religion all the way. Kyoto now is an impressive song if ur band can pull it off.

EDIT: Most people wont know it tho.

Go for some Ramones then, dude. When it comes to punk, the Ramones can't be beat, eh? Blitzkreig Bop or I Wanna Be Sedated, everyone knows those two songs.
