Hey there you lovely people, doing a talent show at my school in a few weeks with a drummer, myself( guitar ) and a guitar/ vocalist

I need one or two lovely well known crowd pleaser's !

Most likely acoustic guitars as well, any advice and idea's would be brilliant

thanks

There was a wonderful period for music in our history called the 80's that is full of what you are looking for.

Seriously though, crowd pleasing acoustic songs are what paid for my favorite bands' coke addictions since the good songs didn't make them any money

I think the Cannibal Corpse wasn't a real suggestion, but would love to see an arrangement done acoustically lol

Heaven, Every Rose, Wanted Dead or Alive, Fly To The Angels, Hysteria, etc are all great ones, but if you're in high school I don't know if that will fly as well as I'd hope... I remember being the only kid in school a few years ago who had a Crue shirt, but I'm sure your classmates will at least recognize a few of those... Hopefully...

I would normally say why care about people in school.

I suppose something by Lostprophets, they seemed to please underage girls.

Yeah I understand what you mean, and I was joking before.

Maybe something like Rock the Casbah - The Clash, everyone knows that surely.

RHCP are a good option. Snow (Hey Oh) is easy to play and looks/sounds impressive too, Californiacation, Can't Stop are very well known and fun.

Honestly man even though it's definitely not my favorite song, though it is my favorite band, Should I Stay or Should I Go? or maybe Blitzkrieg Bop. That's only if you're looking for more of an upbeat kinda punky song. Nothing to upset the parental units but you still get to be rocking. Or you could play Kick Out the Jams by MC5 or Too Drunk To F*** by Dead Kennedy's. That is if you don't mind suspension and a stern talking to. Hope this helped man.
There's a conflict, you see. A conflict between the land and the people, and the people gotta go.

Piano dick had some good parts, but should have said "As the business man slowly gets boned", would have accented the whole dick feeling of the album

If we're talking acousticy mainstream songs from that time, I'd lend it over to

True, that would be a good choice. I don't know anybody who doesn't know that song.


I don't think this one would be a bad choice either, although it be a little bit "darker" than that song:

edit: I think actually there's a UGer here that was in (or still might be in) Days of New. I want to say Primusfan but i dunno...
