My friend is trying to compile a good rock playlist for an event and she needs a good selection of songs. She's going for a nice hardrock theme for middle aged group(25-45), maybe some 70/80/90s rock. I figured I would be smart and ask the pros. So if anyone wants to help us out and come up with a playlist of about 12-15 songs that would be awesome. Can't have any offensive language btw.

You're asking a bunch of twelve to fourteen year olds on the internet for a list of mature rock songs for an audience of twenty-five to fourty-five year olds?

Can't go wrong with:

Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
Lazy - Deep Purple
Life In the Fast Lane - The Eagles

Well it all depends on who your playing to:

(some of these will overlap)

If your playing for the hippie crowd then go for:

Revolution-The Beatles (hell any Beatles tune will work)
White Rabbit-Jeffereson Airplane
Truckin'-The Grateful Dead
Fixin' To Die Rag-Country Joe and the Fish (people love to sing along with the chorus)
Bobby McGee-Janis Joplin
Purple Haze-Jimi Hendrix
Lucifer Sam-Pink Floyd (Barret era>Gilmour era imho)

For the bluesy crowd:

Pride And Joy-Stevie Ray Vaughn
Whippin' Post-Allman Brothers Band
Sympathy for the Devil-The Rolling Stones
Red House-Jimi Hendrix
Crossroad Blues-Cream

The hard rock folks:

Whole Lotta Love-Led-Zeppelin
Paranoid-Black Sabbath
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap-AC/DC
Mississippi Queen-Mountain
Smoke On The Water-Deep Purple
Sweet Emotion-Aerosmith

Mix and match em and you should be able to get a fairly decent set list, like I said some can go into different categories and what not, but just choose a few and get up there and let her rip
