im looking for something with good pop melody and ripping chords that would be a good asskicker of a song to open a set with. any suggestions? kindof garage rock i guess is what i want (somethin along the lines of wilco, old 97s, the jam, kinks) or just any song with that kind of feel that you really like

Better Man by Pearl Jam.

It starts off slow, but when you get to the part where the drums come in, it's really awesome.

Panic Attack! by The Fall of Troy

I used to hate it, now i'm hooked. and its their most generic yet IMO
If a mortal stands before us
Strike him down with sleight of hand.
And if heaven rides against us
Then God himself must be damned.

Lately I've been really liking the song Sink Into Me by Taking Back Sunday. That might work for what you're looking for.

Okay, heres the deal. If you're looking for the most powery + poppyiest power pop you'll ever hear you need to check out The New Pornographers. It's like injecting sugar and crack into your veins and then writing a pop song.

I am not joking.

Do it.

any faster songs by thrice (try deadbolt)
kick out the jams by mc5 or redone by RATM
