So I have a punk band I sing and play guitar for. We need a 3 or 4 song set list based on the songs we know. What songs out of these should we play?

The Gold Song-Bouncing Souls
Los Angeles is Burning-Bad Religion
Amoeba-The Adolescents
Dont Drag Me Down-Social Distortion
Come Out and Play-The Offspring
Knowledge-Operation Ivy
Turncoat-Anti Flag
Gang Control-Leftover Crack

Where are you playing? Whats the audience? If its a Punk Crowd, go with your four best, and be objective. If its a bar, or obscure crowd, pick the four most commonly known
1981 Gibson Les Paul Custom (Black Beauty)
1980 Marshall JMP 2204

You two must be kidding. The punk scene is actually large everywhere. Just because most people "at your school" listen to hardcore music doesn't make punk very distinctive.

My partner in my old agricultural science class looked "hick" or "redneck". He loved David Bowie, The Stooges, and Social Distortion.

People might like punk music, they just won't show it.

Anyways...

I would say "Don't Drag Me Down", "Come Out And Play", and "Los Angeles Is Burning" would be the most recognisable three. If you are doing covers at a high school, always do the most known. For the final song you guys should just play your favorite.

Good luck.

At least around me this is wrong, I know one person that likes screamo and tons don't.
OT: Just play your best songs at a school

Seeing as TS is banned (no, not by me), I'm going to lock this in the interest of diverting attention to the re-named sticky "Setlists and Order of Performance" at the top of this forum.
