I suppose you'd have to play with it a little, to add guitars and such, but that would be so badass.

Not trying to be mean, but what makes you think you're going to win? You didn't exactly sell the band in that one sentence.

Do some Rage Against The Machine, maybe Bombtrack or Killing In The Name, they aren't too difficult and although Tom Morello uses a whammy and/or toggle switch you can get away with not using them if you play it well.

Wearable capo? Maybe he means like clamping the capo to his penis and walking around?

Because that's not what I do with my capo.

Well would you go to a battle of the bands and not a have an encore song prepared just in case? Imagine winning and f*cking up the encore

Depending on what kind of music you play, pick something difficult and timeless. Or write something.
New Setup:
Epiphone Les Paul Custom (Black SG w/ 3 Hum.)
Peavey Classic 50
EHX Metal Muff
Cry Baby 535Q

I've found that AC/DC tends to get a crowd moving and excited.

Do something fast and fun and well-known.

Why play an encore when you could just do this? It's oh-so-much more entertaining

But, in all seriousness, do Like A Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan...
