Hey.

Our schools holding a Talent Contest on the 15th, and we've entered our band into it.
(Yes, short notice).
However, we're kinda stuck about what song to choose, this is going to be our first time playing live, so please don't suggest anything like the Stairway To Heaven solo.

We're a three-piece, with me (lead guitarist), and my bassist doing lead vocals.

Oh yes, and our preferred style is rock/punk.

Thanks in advance.

Well it depends on your definition of "rock/punk". Do you mean real punk? Or. You know. The other kind.

Song 2 by Blur, it's easy and will always go down well with the crowds. Just make sure you do a good 'Woo hoo!'.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
