Well we usually have 4 or 5 songs.


The last gig we did it like this,

go on get everyone clapping and we do the little "lalala etc" bit at the start of the Offspring's self-esteem and then burst into the song.
Then into Tears don't fall.
Then Plug in Baby
Then freak on a leash.
Then finish with dammit.

But it changes all the time. Since we jsut really started we don't play originals atm.
Odd Variety of songs but it works.

10-11 originals to pick from depending on the show.

We have covered Daedalus by Thrice, Ghostship I by The Fall of Troy, and Say It Ain't So by Weezer in the past, but we really dislike doing covers live. We can do them, it just feels like a waste.

We choose 4 or 5 originals and end the night with a cover.



Kind of like Oasis, with I Am the Walrus.

Anyway, we haven't finished writing ANY of our own material... so obviously, we can only do covers.

But currently, an ideal set would be:


Rock & Roll Star
Cant Stop
Not Nineteen Forever
Seven Nation Army
American Idiot
'The Blues is Easy to Play, but Hard to Feel'
Jimi Hendrix

I am always amazed that people neglect the current and popular songs.

Where are the White Stripes, Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Green Day, Rise Against?

So many bands out there seem to like to focus on the old and tired stuff that was considered overplayed years ago....

**obviously, my criticism is not aimed at the original bands**

We usually play 45 min sets, 10 or 11 originals. If it's a bar gig or a set where people aren't coming for original music, we throw in Mr. Crowley (Ozzy) or Lights (Journey). We really don't do covers at all, we knew a few others but those two seemed like the only two that weren't overplayed. (wait....)

We do mostly newer stuff like weezer, RHCP, tool, radiohead, oasis, green day etc. The only older stuff is comfortably numb, enter sandman, some AC/DC and a few bob marley songs. We are really just trying to make some money and please the bar crowd rather than develop as a serious band. We try lots of songs and whatever the crowd reacts well to stays on our list.

We have a opening jam that builds layers of delayed guitar until it's unbearable, then we have any of 25-35 covers/originals, then we usually close with our original called "Liquid Pain," which is fast and catchy as hell.

(Working setlist, for when we get a singer and actually start to gig)

first half, standard tuned:
Headquarters (math/prog rock)
Dead Hookers (hard rock, rough recording of guitar only can be found in profile)
Cochise - Audioslave(could move this to opener)
Rafip (pop-punk song, really easy)
East Jesus Nowhere - Green Day

second half, in Drop D:
Joker and The Thief - Wolfmother
Sound of Madness - Shinedown
Random Metal(working title, obviously XD)

Kinda jumps around in terms of genres, but it includes modern, popular music. However, if we ever get around to it, I want to do foreplay/longtime for our area's BoTB.

@Jonny Ryan - THAT is a good setlist!!!

@R+R star - Looks like a good start. I guess I mostly didn't notice it because it's only five songs.

Thanks man. We have a good time up there, and everybody loves to get down and jam.

We got some crowd jumpers. Songs that we make them sing, clap, or stomp there feet. We got the waitress last night clapping and singing to "What I Got". Its a easy guitar song, solo and all, (although for pure fun, our bassist does a bass solo where Bradley would do his thing), it sounds sweet. and I get to say that my Bassist plays his guitar like a MFN riot!

You gotta have energy, get the crowd going!

Thanks for the compliment.

We usually play 6-10 originals, depending on the time.
We usually take up 25 minutes to an hour.
Sometimes we throw in a cover in the middle.
We usually start with Pod Six Is Down (original) which is catchy and pretty heavy.
Then we end with Just A Passer-By (original) which is our heaviest song.

Popular to the teenage demographic that would come to our shows. We're teens ourselves, just barely getting off the ground. People would at least know Cochise, maybe Joker and the Thief and East Jesus Nowhere from GH/RB, and Sound of Madness is getting a lot of radio play around here.

Tis all originals. But lately we've been dropping in a few covers of Hysteria - Muse and Hey - Pixies, though it follows the same melody and what not, we try to put our own feel on the songs.
