alright, so My band and I are performing in a school battle of the bands and I would like to know what peoples opinions on the setlist is.
Its mostly popular songs but that is because at my school, all BOTB has become is a popularity contest and its not the intensity of the song but the popularity of the song.

the songs we're performing are:

Use Somebody -- Kings of Leon
Megalomaniac -- Incubus
All these Things That I've Done -- The Killers

maybe:

Billie Jean -- MJ
Crushcrushcrush -- Paramore
Everlong -- Foo fighters

anyone have other songs they could recommend me? thanks!

How can you crush the competition with your music if your music isn't heavy? (pun intended)

Well if its popularity, then you better put Everlong in there.
Or, pick something that is completely overplayed on the radio right now. I wouldn't know cause, honesty, and im not trying to sound all uppity here, i haven't listened to the radio in months.

what the kids at my old school liked was heavy metal remakes of popular rap songs....try that...could turn out cool
#23
Definately try and convince your drummer to do Everlong
and Billie Jean, maybe Beat it too

Try and mix it up a bit though, so it's a popular alt song, popular pop song, popular hard rock song. That kinda thing

How To Save A Life by The Fray is pretty popular. I'm a Sophomore in high school.
Everyone loves that song. Preps, jocks, emo kids, goths. All of them.
What's it like, to die alone? And how does it feel when tears freeze, when you cry? The blood in your veins is twenty below.

Sex on Fire would be good
but I dont know what the establishment would say about it
DO IT ANYWAY!!!!
#28
it doesn't really matter, Battle of the bands are jokes, not to much "school Battle of the bands."

So really, play whatever you as a band want to, not what your audience wants you to hear, because unless you:

a) Really have your sites set on winning
and
b) Have members who are very popular

you shouldn't bother.

I want to win for one reason, theres this one other band whos singer/guitarist (who sucks at singing, like literally dirt shit) who i hate and i need to win, just so he'll lose.

and I'll probs add in something Strip My Mind or Hey by RHCP just cause they're both epic songs.

Okay check it:

Open with a popular, upbeat, modern song, probably something by Muse.

Then do another one.

Then do a rap with the crowd, and play a quirky cover of a popular song in a different style, or a joke song.

Then go all out metal for a little bit, a short song, probably a classic, like Run To The Hills, or a cover, like Umbrella or something.

And close with one of the following:

Don't Stop Believin'
Livin' On A Prayer
