Well my band got a gig playing on 4th of july. The guy that runs the show said he wants to hear some rock songs and a little punk. He made it really clear that he just wants cover songs. We are filling an hour slot to a crowd of 1500 ranging in age from 20-50.

So far we know that we are going to play animals by nickleback, killing in the name of, and Time is running out by muse. Anyone got ideas of songs we should cover?

I wouldnt lay anyreally heavy music, i would stick to mostly pretty mainstream stuff. i would mostly to pop rock and the classics like aerosmith, the stones, beatles, clapton, and skynyrd because of teh huge range of ages.

Whell this guy seems like an extreme douche. Play ONLY CLASSICS AND WHATEVER IS ON THE TOP 40! Seriously! That ****ign anoyying song by Fall out boy, Iron Man by Black Sabbath (good song, just over played in my opinion), Greenday, anything that you think is generic, play it!

Also, don't worry about your Bassist. that guy will probably just turn him off. Same thing goes for your drummer. Just a snare and a kick and a highhat will do. He will turn off everything else. He will turn the guitar and the singer WAY too loud!

Sad but true.
