So I had this idea to record a video of my band playing a song on the subway train. Basically what would happen is we'd board a semi crowded train right before one of those stops that's really far away giving us a good 7 or 8 minutes to play.

We'd have the vocalist and two guitarists playing acoustic guitars, and the drummer just hitting the floor or poles with his drum sticks for a ghetto beat that really just serves as a metronome. We'd play a very aggressive, original heavy metal song and have some of our friends record it.

Basically i thought it would be a good idea because folk and classic guitarists always come and play for change on the train so this would be a cool twist on that. We board the train and people assume we are going to play some acoustic duet and then we just blow their minds with some extreme tunes.

So what do ya think?
Good idea?
Any chance of us getting arrested?

Interesting idea, but videos would be mandatory!

I think that might happen if you get too loud or if some of those cranky old people are on board.

Holy crap that will be awesome! I think do it.

Do it a few times, get some real good shots. Then mix the best ones together blah de blah you know that stuff better than me probably...

About the sound quality though... you may have to do a better recording and put it over the video.

Well i don't know what's "homosexual" about it, or why it wont work. It's not like we expect the business people on the train to get into it. It will be a crowded train full of unsuspecting people getting their faces melted acoustically.

Metal is not a very popular genre, and since the train will be crowded, people not wanting to hear can't get away, and will be pissed off, getting you arrested most likely.

It's just that there won't be any cuts, and the video will be all shaky and low quality, with the loud noises of the train in the background. It just won't be good.

Dude you'd be pissing off a lot of people, not really the look you want when promoting your band in a video clip.

nothing would piss me off more than coming home on the train after a long, arduous day of work, wanting nothing more than to head home and unwind, when these young ****ing posers with instruments come in and start banging on the walls and yelling.

But film it and post it in The Pit for some lulz.

If theres any real metal fans on the train they're likely to beat you stupid for

A) Playing Metalcore
B) Making asses of yourselves

The idea is good, but you're better off doing it when you can have it set up properly. Depending where you live, people will probably just tell you to shut the **** up.

No one ever said anything about metal core. It's going to be the farthest thing from metal core.

It's an interesting idea, but I don't think you want people telling you to STFU in a music video
If you fill the compartment with metalheads like some other guy suggested, and put a proper recording over the top, it could work. Maybe

No, just no. I see this not being as good as you want it to be. Too much back ground noise, people will get annoyed, ghetto beat in a metal video???? Seriously?
