I am in a band, and at the moment we're just going to do covers until we write our own music. I am having a difficult time deciding on songs to attempt, so does anyone have any suggestions?

Genre: Metal/Rock/Blues
Preferred time period: 1970-1996

Yeah, totally glossed over that, sorry. Okay, first of all, sorry to hear you're playing covers. I feel I can say that because I've been doing it for 10+ years. But seriously...
a few things that I have learned in the past 10 years playing in a cover band. If you don't play what the crowd wants to hear (at least most of the time) then it's going to be a long night. Unfortunately, crowds aren't known for their taste in music. Most are sheep that yell out the same crap every night... Freebird, Mustang Sally, You Shook Me All Night Long, Old Time Rock n' Roll, blah, blah, blah. I hate to say it but if you want people on the dance floor, prepare to give them what they want. We started out as an 80's hair metal cover band (I can hear the snickers now) and quickly figured out that we weren't going to be playing very many shows (at least not in my area). However, you can sprinkle in a few tunes of stuff that you and your bandmates want to play, and some stuff that's a little more challenging.

As for an actual list of songs, I'm going to pass, simply because I don't want to get beat up in The Pit of listing lame ass songs. Do a Google search on Greatest Cover Songs or something like that and you'll get a list of completely worn out, over played, and disgusting list of songs. Or, check out the websites of some other cover bands in your local area to see what they're playing. I'm not saying to copy what they're doing, but you can get an idea of the bands they are covering and maybe cover a different song.
