Your bands setlist...

Well we usually have 4 or 5 songs.



The last gig we did it like this,

go on get everyone clapping and we do the little "lalala etc" bit at the start of the Offspring's self-esteem and then burst into the song.
Then into Tears don't fall.
Then Plug in Baby
Then freak on a leash.
Then finish with dammit.

But it changes all the time. Since we jsut really started we don't play originals atm.
Odd Variety of songs but it works.

Would be our 3 originals, a serious cover (probably Under a Glass Moon by Dream Theater) and our cover of the pokemon theme.

10-11 originals to pick from depending on the show.

We have covered Daedalus by Thrice, Ghostship I by The Fall of Troy, and Say It Ain't So by Weezer in the past, but we really dislike doing covers live. We can do them, it just feels like a waste.

Kind of like Oasis, with I Am the Walrus.

Anyway, we haven't finished writing ANY of our own material... so obviously, we can only do covers.

But currently, an ideal set would be:


Rock & Roll Star
Cant Stop
Not Nineteen Forever
Seven Nation Army
American Idiot

I am always amazed that people neglect the current and popular songs.

Where are the White Stripes, Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Green Day, Rise Against?

So many bands out there seem to like to focus on the old and tired stuff that was considered overplayed years ago....

**obviously, my criticism is not aimed at the original bands**

We usually play 45 min sets, 10 or 11 originals. If it's a bar gig or a set where people aren't coming for original music, we throw in Mr. Crowley (Ozzy) or Lights (Journey). We really don't do covers at all, we knew a few others but those two seemed like the only two that weren't overplayed. (wait....)

We do mostly newer stuff like weezer, RHCP, tool, radiohead, oasis, green day etc. The only older stuff is comfortably numb, enter sandman, some AC/DC and a few bob marley songs. We are really just trying to make some money and please the bar crowd rather than develop as a serious band. We try lots of songs and whatever the crowd reacts well to stays on our list.

We usually opened with NOFX (Linoelum or Green Corn) or Millencolin (Bullion or Olympic) then originals and often ended with Walk Like an Egyptian.

Those were the days...
