That's what I was thinking...But if he's playing a crowd that isn't into that, it obviously won't go over well.

If you wanna have a song that will be really popular and easy but that won't suck, I think a Flyleaf song is a good choice. They're like Paramore except GOOD.

Play some super spine chilling song on the loudspeaker before you come out.

I would suggest Ecstasy of Gold, but as we know, this has been taken.

Could try an extended intro into your first song.

When I saw Lostprophets they all came on stage one by one slowly building the song (Town Called Hypocrisy). Drummer came out, started off with a little solo then laid down the beat, out comes the bassist and starts a little improv based around the main lick. Then the guitarist came out in the end and did the intro. Paused for a bit and then the started the song properly. That was pretty cool.

Not sure what the rest of your set list is, that could help us out.

it really depends on what king of band you are... if you're punk then play the punk anthem, all the small things or anarchy in the u.k. if you are metal then take smoke on the water to a heavier level. basic rock then bring cobain back with smells like teen spirit. wonderwall. a reeeeally good one is sgt. major by JET. speaking of jet, try joan jet mith your chick vocalist, i lonve rock n roll. there's plenty of choices out there bro.

Paramore is a good idea - Misery Business Mayb? If they're into heavier stuff maybe evanescence?

Play Smells Like Teen Spirit.. Legitimate Nirvana fans will appreciate it, and the illigitimates will be like "hey, I know this song, Nirvana rocks!" even though they clearly have only heard that one song, leading me to rant about it in a thread like this.
