Hey, everyone!! I just started a band and we aren't gonna write any of our own music just yet. I have an average bassist, one ok guitarist, one really good guitarist that can play stuff like A7X, average drummer. So, I dont know what songs i should start playing first. We like Metal, rock, classic rock, punk and alternative rock. I'm our vocalist and I can sing most things. I wanna start with some easy but good sounding songs. Anyone got any ideas?

so you like metal,rock, and punk ?

for metal, you can do some sabbath for easier songs.
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

OK... you need to revive the space rock genre (minus drugs [it'll be way out there ])

Add lots of reverb, delay, cool introspective lyrics, chill riffs, it'll be awesome!

Smells Like Teen Spirit.

It's a pretty unknown song; You'd probably get major points for using it.

**** what everyone here on UG think about these bands. play some good Nirvana songs, old greenday, if thats too easy, start some metallica from the black album, rage against the machine.

Pick songs with such energy that even if the people who go see you play, or hear you play would stay till the end of the song haha. Those bands never fail to do so.

**** that. Write new material. You can play some covers of songs you enjoy listening to, but if you're gonna play out, you should write stuff.

No no. you don't have to write music. Just do improvisation and jamming, compltely original. Plus if you have some crazy effects, you could do wonders with your space rock band. But you would have to write some good lyrics though and structure the jam enough to incorporate lyrics. Call yourselves "Gangsta Rock"

Yes please. Or Covered With Sores.


And this thread is the dumbest garbage ever. Don't ask other people what you should play. Songs you cover should be from the self/band. And try writing something, that's usually a good idea? Either way, you're just gonna be another shi**y pop rock band.

God forbid someone ask for recommendations . Also aren't you going to tell them to only play metal because because it's the only genre with any complexity or technical difficulty. Br00t4l name by the way.
