We have a opening jam that builds layers of delayed guitar until it's unbearable, then we have any of 25-35 covers/originals, then we usually close with our original called "Liquid Pain," which is fast and catchy as hell.

But what demographic would describe those tunes as 'popular?'

(Working setlist, for when we get a singer and actually start to gig)

first half, standard tuned:
Headquarters (math/prog rock)
Dead Hookers (hard rock, rough recording of guitar only can be found in profile)
Cochise - Audioslave(could move this to opener)
Rafip (pop-punk song, really easy)
East Jesus Nowhere - Green Day

second half, in Drop D:
Joker and The Thief - Wolfmother
Sound of Madness - Shinedown
Random Metal(working title, obviously XD)

Kinda jumps around in terms of genres, but it includes modern, popular music. However, if we ever get around to it, I want to do foreplay/longtime for our area's BoTB.

Zombie - The Cranberries
Soul to Squeeze - RHCP
Rockin' in the Free World - Neil Young
Blood to Bleed - Rise Against
House of the Rising Sun
Turn the page
Comedown - Bush
My own Worst Enemy - LIT
Ghost of Tom Joad - Bruce Springsteen (One of my favorites!)

The band is currently working on -
Seven Nation Army - The White Stripes
Havin' a bad day - Blue Flannel

Popular according to what demographic?

@Jonny Ryan - THAT is a good setlist!!!

@R+R star - Looks like a good start. I guess I mostly didn't notice it because it's only five songs.

Thanks man. We have a good time up there, and everybody loves to get down and jam.

We got some crowd jumpers. Songs that we make them sing, clap, or stomp there feet. We got the waitress last night clapping and singing to "What I Got". Its a easy guitar song, solo and all, (although for pure fun, our bassist does a bass solo where Bradley would do his thing), it sounds sweet. and I get to say that my Bassist plays his guitar like a MFN riot!

You gotta have energy, get the crowd going!

Thanks for the compliment.

We usually play 6-10 originals, depending on the time.
We usually take up 25 minutes to an hour.
Sometimes we throw in a cover in the middle.
We usually start with Pod Six Is Down (original) which is catchy and pretty heavy.
Then we end with Just A Passer-By (original) which is our heaviest song.

Popular to the teenage demographic that would come to our shows. We're teens ourselves, just barely getting off the ground. People would at least know Cochise, maybe Joker and the Thief and East Jesus Nowhere from GH/RB, and Sound of Madness is getting a lot of radio play around here.

Okay.... so you're not playing bars then. That makes a big difference.

Never played a cover, only a few ideas for covers so far.
No point. We've got tons of original stuff anyway.

Yeah, we'd mainly play BoTBs. If we DO get around to bar playing we'd add more classic rock stuff.

Tis all originals. But lately we've been dropping in a few covers of Hysteria - Muse and Hey - Pixies, though it follows the same melody and what not, we try to put our own feel on the songs.
