My band needs a good song to play in our talent show, something a lot of people know, but somthing that's not a poser song. Something slightly heavier than The Rolling Stones, Rush, and Led Zeppelin. Please no songs from Guitar hero.

Green, because a vest has no sleeves.

Can't we all just get a bong?

i say play an acoustic version of Straight Outta Compton by NWA. No one does that.
plus i say this to everyone and no one has done it yet >=(

Hmmm in your situation I would play Cast Down the Heretic by Nile. That song is pretty accessible. Most teachers like it too. Or like three-dimensional defect by Decapitated. That's a nice song to get the audience really singing along.

crazy train?

Oh God, will people stop suggesting that?!


Anyway, do some acdc, like you shook me all night long, or back in black. rock and roll ain't noise pollution is a good one too.
i would stick away from highway to hell, except for an encore. It's too well known, but not as bad as crazy train.
Jesus for president. PM me to join the campaign. or just sig it.

Of course God has a sense of humor. Look at the Platypus...

Alright then...

You could try some Maiden if your vocalist good enough?

Or, you could do Mr. Crowley- Ozzy

Not that well known, but known to anyone who's even a slight fan of Ozzy/Sabbath.

then you need to get a new band

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

You could play one of rush's heavier songs, like yyz or something.
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

#21
I'm still thinking Chocolate Rain would be the crowd pleaser. You could throw in a barrel roll at the end of the song if you want.

and why can't it be something from guitar hero? there are plenty of good songs on there...i don't see why because it's been on a video game it suddenly becomes completely off limits...
anyways all of these would be good choices i think...

Black Sabbath- War Pigs/ Paranoid/ Black Sabbath
Iron Maiden- Fear of the Dark/ The Trooper/ Number of The Beast
Judas Priest- Breakin' the Law/ You Got Another Thing Commin'
Dio- Holy Diver

im hot for teacher - van halen

It's not that I don't like songs from Guitar Hero, its that I think they're overplayed, I'm a bassist and I can't tell you how much I would love to play YYZ. But we're not going to. Somebody suggested Van Halen, something like that, but somebody's already playing Van Halen, but something of that genre.

i say you start and play liike the first 10 seconds of some really emo song like a norma jean(or the like) song and then just stop and have the singer say something like"did you really think we were gonna play that ****?" then start playing something awesome like lamb of god's foot to the throat.

not nessecarily hair metal
well...how would you describe van halen? they're glam/hair metal with a real good lead guitarist

i think you'd be best off going with heavy metal...it's accesable to most and there are plenty of recognizable songs out there

Van Halen was kinda Glam a bit with David Lee Roth, but i wouldnt call them Hair metal. but for a song, try Thunderstruck by AC/DC. Everyone knows it, and it isnt really played very much. and if all your band mates are good then try some crazy ass Power Metal just to impress the hell outta people.
#38
AC DC, Guns n Roses, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beatles

never play metal at a talent show unless it is 80's, thrash, traditional or instrumental. this is what happened at my school. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Yn4EIUgjh88
Save you gr1m metal for home.
