So, I'm a sophomore at my high school and there's this student/faculty band that plays all kinds of music, like jazz, rock, blues, and funk. It's made up of really talented people. I need to come up with a song that I can play 2:00 of as an audition. It doesn't have to be crazy-difficult or super technical, but just not anything like Smoke on the Water . I'm thinking possibly one of these:

RATM: Know Your Enemy
RATM: Wake Up by RATM
Thin Lizzy: Boys are Back in Town
Black Sabbath: Sabbra Cadabra
ACDC: Have a Drink on Me

What do you guys think? These ^ are just songs I'm personally thinking of playing. I'm 110% open to suggestions What do you guys think? Also, every guitarist auditioning (there are only two haha) have to play the solo from "Frankenstein" by the Edgar Winter Group, so that's about the required difficulty/skill level. Learning it (it's about a minute long) took me about 15 minutes. Also, I've been playing for 4 years if that helps

i would suggest something maybe a little softer than RATM as it seems youll be playing softer styles in that band. maybe something like MR. P.C. its an awesome blues tune. plus itll show them your styles range further than hard rock...

I sincerely hope one day you look back at this post and realize how ignorant you're being about the concept of getting high.

Out of those choices, I'm going to go with the Bastrapple.

Well, the band plays stuff like Live and Let Die, Muse songs, YYZ by Rush, and Frankenstein, but yeah I agree with you there.

I'm looking for a really consistent song. Texas Flood and Mr. PC are too sporadic and solo-y. I don't feel like learning what's practically a 4+ minute slow blues solo note for note.

As said, can't go wrong with AC/DC. If they play songs like the ones you mentioned then that should be a safe way to go. Plus a lot of AC/DC songs are very rhythm-dependant, so if you play it well it will show that you're able to keep good time and provide a solid flow to the music.
