Hey I'm sure this probably isnt the best place for this forum, and i'm sorry for that. anywho, Im a 15 year old kid and my band is playing the battle of the bands in march and we need some badass covers to pump the people up. any fun suggestions? We are thinking voodoo child to finish our set, but as far as an opener goes we need something that just...pumps people up. last year it was sweet child and we killed it! (in a good way, we got 2nd outta 10 bands lol) any other ideas anybody? thanks in advance

Walk or Cowboys from Hell by Pantera if you got that thick distortion working for you.

Or even For Whom The Bell Tolls. Anything with a pounding first few notes or a cool sounding intro.
#11
foxy lady - jimi hendrix
Ibanez JTK1 in Butterscotch
Ibanez SAS36FM
Roland Cube40 Chorus

Wolfmother - Joker and the thief.

Not a hard song to play but it rocks.
#14
Bring on the Nubiles by the Stranglers.

If nothing else you'll have the attention of all the feminists in the audience.
#15
Bro Hymn by Pennywise. Even easier then Joker And The Theif and it rocks twice as hard.

Yeah it's easy, so? People absolutely love it and it is an amazing pump up song.

Too right...you don't have to play something technically difficult to get peoples attention...some of the best songs about are some of the simplest.

Come On pt1 - Hendrix (I think its a cover maybe? Dont know who wrote it)

Rock n' Roll - Led Zeppelin

Those would be great openers IMO.

try something easy and that rocks hard that you wont screw up.

for instance.. if you can pull off cant stop by the red hot chili peppers.. that one goes over well because theres rock and funk and a little bit of rap flair to it... additionally it has a powerful solo that isnt hard at all.

We did freebird (did it about 90% accurate) and people were like.. ok.. then when they were leaving we did sweet child o mine and people went nuts.. started walking back in.

just find something worth it and have fun

Slither - Velvet Revolver. It has a great drum intro, works well as an opener.

i just fell in love with this song and most people know it
Enter Sandman(pun intended again)-Metallica
When all else fails, ask the pit.

Doesn't Joker and the Thief have a polyrhythmic section? Doesn't seem to easy to me... Good pump up song. Any AC/DC would be good, 'cept for maybe You Shook Me All Night Long. That's always a closer.
