When my band starts gigging, what are some of the most popular songs, something everyone will know.

Right now our arsenal is this...

sunshine of your love
tears in heaven
wonderful tonight, all 3 clapton

these are good songs, but they aren't really great.

need some diversity please

Hypathetically speaking, would jacking off everyday be considered OCD?

not that this applies to me in any way, i'm just curious...

Throw some Zep in there like Immigrant Song, Black Dog, Whole Lotta Love, Rock n' Roll. Everyone knows or is farmiliar with them. Plus Sweet Home Alabama gets the crowd going. My band played a bar once and we played that at happy hour and we had all the drunk dudes singing.

Avoid everything that has been suggested so far, do more obscure and older stuff. Every band does the same songs, the popular rock like AC/DC and stuff. Try to stand out a little and do some Bo Diddley, Stevie Wonder and Howlin' Wolf.

My band plays Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and Come Together. All easy songs that sound good. We also know how to play a bunch of stuff, like Tales of Brave Ulysses, Jumping Jack Flash, My Generation, Sgt. Peppers-->The End, Money, Comfortably Numb, What Is and What Should Never Be, and Sweet Emotion.

ufossuck is right though, it would be cool to play some older stuff.

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.

I played some Stevie the other night, gosh that was fun

Everybody's heard all the popular stuff, why not have a little fun with some lesser known numbers that are your favorites? I agree with ufossuck on this.

Yeah, or you could do lesser known songs by popular artists. I think it'd be sweet to hear either one.

****in' right! AND YOU THOUGHT HE WAS A MAN, BUT HE WAS A MUFFIN!

"Takin' Care of Business" and "Sunshine of Your Love" are kinda cliche nowadays. Personally If I was gonna do a B.T.O. song it would be "Roll on Down the Highway," you don't hear that every day, like "Takin' Care of Business." Some older standards would be cool, maybe "Who do You Love?" "Johnny B. Goode" or "Rollin' and Tumblin'."

Don't do the same old crap everyone does, noone wants to hear that. Play what you want to play and what you listen to, maybe you'll get someone into some new music. Wouldn't that be more satisfying than assaulting their ears with Back in Black again?

I'd like to see somebody do "up from the skies" by Hendrix especially with that Wah work.

I've always thought Good Times, Bad Times would be good to cover, the solo in there is amazing and Burn by Deep Purple is a little less known but would be good live

I (we realize) that its cliche. But around here, no other bands do it, and once and a while we like to do a song that everybody knows, get people to sing and whatnot. When we do covers (which isn't too often), we tend to do lesser known tunes, but its nice to have something that people know and love.
