So here's the deal:

Me and some other guys decided to get our sh*t together and play a gig at a mutual friends 18th birthday party. We're gonna play some punk rock / skate punk / pop rock or whatever songs that are not too hard to play when you're drinking. (reasonably).

Soo, anyone got a few pointers? We've only come up with "basket case" and we need some more songs.

Thanks alot ;p

songs decided so far :

Greenday - Basket case
The Offspring - Want you bad
Blink 182 - Dammit
Lustra - Scotty doesn't know

keep em' coming
#16
Offspring has some funny and easy tunes, Why Don't You Get a Job is what I'm thinking of right now, hilarious and easy (and it's also a rip off classic Beatles song so people should recognize it)

You could also try something like hmm Whiskey in the Jar maybe?
Jackson DKMG & KE3, Fender Mexican Strat, Stagg Acoustic

Boss Compressor & Chorus, Dunlop Crybaby, Behringer Delay, ISP Decimator, Ibanez Tubescreamer

Laney TT50H, Marshall 1960A, Roland Cube 15

Looking to jam in Belfast, PM me!

Why hasn't anyone said the most obvious answer?

ASK THE BIRTHDAY BOY/GIRL!

Chances are they aren't going to request anything too crazy, or at least something you can't fake.

you HAVE to play this one. there's no avoiding it.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite
#25
If you want punk rock or something, just play a load of Greenday and Blink 182. It's mostly all powerchords, so even if drunk, you probably won't fuck it up.
#26
Might not be punk, but play Paradise City by Guns n' Roses

It's one of those songs that everyone knows even if they don't like GnR lol
Crowds always go mental if you play it and get them to sing along at the choruses
