Okay heres my situation, I was asked to play a song(on guitar) infront of the class(hopefully infront of the school ) and i don't know what song to play. any suggestions?

So far im thinking either:
Eruption by EVH
Anthem be Trivium

so any other suggestions for songs?
p.s. has to be a song that u can play with just one guitar and sounds good(preferably a song that doesnt have both rythm and lead unless lead plays throughout the whole song)
nine ince nails - closer

no seriously try:

Coldplay - yellow
Joze Gonzales - crosses
Red hot chili peppers - slow cheetah
John frusciante - they're all good
damn i wish i were in your position

viking kong by racer x is really cool
play crazy train, war pigs, iron man, or any other song by Ozzy/Black Sabbath

Play what the majority of your class will like.
This will probably be a poppier song than you would play, but tbh they'd probably rather hear 4 chords over again (assuming you're going to be singing) than a blistering solo.
im not gonna sing cause honestly i suck the devils red,hairy, saggy balls do id go with blistering solo
If you can play it pretty well play eruption

If you can play eruption then do that. Don't do Anthem without being able to sing, because the guitar work in that is pretty boring.

You should be setting your standards a lot lower. If you have never done a live gig before (which im assuming based on the fact that you need to ask which song to play) then it is likely you will stuff up a technically complicated song, no matter how good you are. Look at something with basic chord progressions or just power chords and you will get applause,

No I'm not. I gave the guy advice and then supported it.

dude if i can play Eruption i don't think i'll go up on stage and play a friggen chord progresion
the reason i said trivium is cause thats the only metal band in our school that majority of people dont mind or like
Do a bluesy piece.

Edit: Better yet, if you're willing (or can get someone) to sing do "redemption song".

Van Halen>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Trivium. that supposed to mean something to me or something?

Am I not allowed to like a band you don't?
Do something shred-tastic like:
Eruption- Van Halen
Far Beyond The Sun- Yngwie Malmsteen
Mr. Scary- George Lynch
Satch Boogie- Joe Satriani

or Metal
Holy Wars... The Punishment Due- Megadeth
Lake Bodom- Children of Bodom
The Psalm of Lydia- Nevermore

or Blues rock-y:
Purple Haze- Jimi Hendrix
Voodoo Chile- Jimi Hendrix
When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Try Binge and Grab-Buckethead nice chorus, riff, and solo, its around 5 minutes long.
Voodoo chile, thats the way to go man.

You don't own shit.
7 Nation Army... everyone loves that song, find a drummer in ur school and u'll start a dance party, u want something fast though maybe Blitzkrieg Bop - Ramones, that'll go down well in a gym full of teenagers or better yet Green Day... but if u want to show off play some SRV, if u can play Eruption u can play Scuttle Buttin and Scuttle Buttin is a way better tune as far as rock instrumentals go

midnight my joe satriani is much easier than it sounds (if you're worried about screwing up, it just i dont know why you wouldnt do eruption if you can play it) and always goes down well.
