My band is playing enter sandman at our school talent show. We thought it was a good pick. We don't want to play one of our songs that nobody cares or has ever heard about and we felt people know metallica(God i hope so). That said, anybody have any advice or input or anything they would like to tell us?

edit: make sure you can all hear eachother, and make sure that you let him know what you need when it comes to your sound.

Well, I'm all out of ideas, except for one. dress up as a squirrel of the opposite sex and try to seduce it. Over the years of mating you and the squirrel will form a species or human squirrel hybrids and be able to take over the world!

im gettin a band together to play this song as well for my schools talent show, and if all goes as planned we should be having our first practice today. i thought itd be a good song cause nearly everyone knows it, and the solo sounds ridiculous to non-guitar players, and is really impressive, even though its really easy

Instead of playing Enter Sandman, play Master of Puppets. Everyone will know that song from Guitar Hero. Basically, just play a song from Guitar Hero.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

Sandman is very mainstream. It's everywhere, Everyone knows it. Everyone's heard it. I'm sure you guys could pick something else that alot of people might know, That isn't like Sandman. <--coming from a Metallica Fan.

Play Simple Man. <--Need a serious singer. And you just can't go wrong with some Skynyrd, Even if people haven't heard it.

Or play something from the minds of you guys.
