This is my band's setlist for an upcoming talent show type thing:

Paranoid by Black Sabbath
House of the Rising Sun by The Animals
Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin
The Dead Can't Testify by Billy Talent
Purple Haze by Jimi Hendrix
and a few of our own

Any comments?
I enjoy Music

depending on your audience, maybe throw in a pop cover that you've rocked up a bit.
people like hearing songs they know.

I think you should mix the order up a little. So play a few by other people then a few of your own and just keep mixing it around. I reckon if people saw a band who just played covers they would get bored.. they like hearing things they know but the majority of people also like to discover new things. but that's my opinion.

i just meant that if its a talent show, your audience might not all be sabbath and zeppelin fans, i'm just saying mix it up and you could appeal to a much larger audience.

don't rock up a pop song. that's so overplayed it's annoying. just do like a blink or sum 41 song like scguitarking927 said. or some well-known pop-punk/pop-rock song.

Its a good safe list, but I think the Sabbath, Zep and Hendrix songs are overplayed. Maybe go for songs that arnt as well known. Theres nothing wrong with the songs youve picked by they are cover band standards, meaning people might have heard them being done before and will judge you against that.

Agreed. Go for something else for Zeppelin or Black Sabbath, as both of those are ludicrously overplayed. Personally, I would suggest either "Children of the Sea" or "Heaven and Hell" as good choices, because some people have heard them, but they aren't covered to death. And if you want Zeppelin, go for "Kashmir" or something of such a nature, but don't play a Zeppelin song that every single person on the earth has heard far too many times (*cough*Stairway to Heaven*cough*).

Kashmir would be a bad idea, as it is played in dadgad (or at least i play it that way). If it's a talent show, people really don't want to stare at some kid tuning his guitar all day.
Listen to my songs on my profile pretty please
