Throw in a few orignals.

Most of the dudes here are kids and cant get into bars, so they don't know what the general consensus is of bands setlist at bars. Assuming thats where you are playing?

Depends on the age group. And as much as every likes bands that no one heard of, that **** really does not fly in a bar. Unless your crowd is into that. Play classic and modern. Even songs on the AT40 or Hot 100 Charts. Im more influenced my mainstream personaly, so is most of the people of the country. And those are the people you'd be playing for 8/10 times. Play:

GnR
ACDC
Zepplin
Whitesnake
Fuel
Metallica(MUST)
Three Days Grace
Creed
Seether
3 Doors Down
Rise Against
All That Remains(kinda show of your growling!) But most people wont know their stuff.

I don't know about all you guys, but thats how its done here.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

Well we're playing at the most popular music venue/bar in town. Our age group is 17 - 20.

But we had practice today and we played Emergency, Misery Business and Crushcrushcrush by Paramore, Don't Cry Guns 'N' Roses, Slither Velvet Revolver and Johnny B Goode Chuck Berry. So do you reck we're along the right lines?

Pub cover bands play massive sets, no other band does this and I don't get it

First of all, very few places have a drinking age of 18. Many places are 19, and a lot are 21. So, in other words, your age group is typically not the age group that is going to be listening. The age group that is going to be listening is going to be primarily in the 20-25 or 20-30 age group.

The music of their youth goes back anywhere from 5-15 years. In other words, 2004-1994. Pick bands and songs that are focused most heavily from 1994 (or even better 2000) onwards.

Paramore's biggest fan base is the age 12-18 age group, I would guess. Pass on Paramore, I would think.

Don't Cry Guns 'N' Roses,


What was that... 1992? Reaching a bit. Basically a 'classic rock' thing. Will it get people getting happy and up dancing? Nope. Will people like it... eh... maybe. At least they'll probably know it. Not a song I'd pick, though.

Slither Velvet Revolver


Yes!!! NOW you're in the ballpark!!

Quote by Tokai09

and Johnny B Goode Chuck Berry.


You are kidding, right? I mean, great song, but tired, tired, tired, tired. Why not just throw in Knockin on Heaven's Door, Radar Love, and Roadhouse Blues while you're at it? Blech. Oh, and Sunshine of Your Love. Haha. That stuff was tired when *I* started playing guitar and thinking about bands. That was in the early '80's!!

Well you live in Canada and bar rules are totally different in the UK (Not having a dig) cause you're allowed into this pub/bar when you're 16 and the whole Paramore thing yeah i undertsand where you're coming from but even my Dad likes Paramore and he's 58 lol. But what we're trying to do is cover a whole range like 90's music, 80's, Punk, Heavy Rock.
