I wasn't sure exactly where to put this, so I figure here is best. So there is this club near where I live called The Black Sheep and I may play with my band in it soon (kind of). Now I was wondering if you all could suggest a song for us to open with. I'm hoping to find one that’s pretty recognizable for us to cover to get the crowd interested before we play original stuff. We play metal/metalcore/hard rock/ anything similar.

Could you all recommend some mildly difficult songs as an icebreaker for us since it is our first gig? Something not drooling easy, a little more difficult that Psychosocial by Slipknot (solo not being included into difficulty.) Any suggestions of a similar or slightly harder known song to play?

Well thats what I'm looking for. A easily recognizable song to play to have the crowd interested that isn't to hard considering it will be our first time in front of people other than friends/family.

hard song =/= good song

easy song =/= bad song

song that accomplishes whatever goal that particular part of set should fulfill = good song

in this case getting the crowd into it right off. Something up beat and relatively short that will showcase the rocker side of your set. Not your most rockin song, don't want to use that up right away.

I didn't "report" you. I don't do that, but if things go the way they usually do, closure is in your future.
