My band is gonna be doing battle of the bands at our schools winter carnival and we don't know what song to play. The thing that sucks is we only get to play one song and it has to be 5 minutes or less. I was thinking of doing No One Knows by qotsa, but i want some other suggestions of good songs. But don't suggest any emo,goth, pop, or death metal songs.
It's not my imagination, I've got a gun on my back!

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Spread rumours that she is a jew. Then all you need to do is sit back and wait for the secret police to make her 'disappear'.

do not do any covers, that just labels you as 'the band who isnt good enough to write anything themselves", and plus, everyone is already pre-disposed to the song and may already hate it or love it.

Just pick a popular song that everyone loves and have a good stage presence. It's only a popularity contest anyways, especially if it's at a school.

Maybe some Iron Maiden? Run to the Hills would boost your awesomeness factor off the scale.

This.

No one actually cares how much talent you have.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

I'd love to see a high school aged band pull that off.. i'd pay money to see it.
Its not bad to do covers, just please don't do something that's overplayed. So no Sweet Child o' Mine, Iron Man, or crap like that.
If you have a good band, maybe try Aces High by Iron Maiden. Or if you guys aren't quite that good, maybe something like... Crazy Train, if your guitarist can pull it off.
Crazy Train would be pretty badass...


Or you could play I Cum Blood..

I reckon my band could pull it off and we're all 16/17, minus the vox cuz we don't have a singer

Nice.. you're drummer must be damn good.
(But it doesnt count until you get a vocalist.
.. and if you can get one like Bruce.. I hate you.)
