Any reccomendations of songs for a 3 piece band to cover? We like stuff from post hardcore/screamo to indie.
I play the guitar and sing, one plays bass, one plays drums. They would probably do backing vocals.

Preferably fairly modern music, and something that isnt too unknown.

Cheers

that's funny, I've not heard of a single one of those 'songs'

depending on your audience, Smells like teen spirit would generally go down well

me and a band played Under the Bridge last year at a talent show and that went down well too.

I know you play newer stuff, but pretty much every band posted so far has been heavily influenced by Rush... plus, if you can sing and play Alex Lifeson's parts at the same time, girls will definitely want to get in your pants.

Okay, I counted one band that even sounded remotely like they were influenced by Rush.

Try something by the Hives. Hate to Say I Told You So is a kick ass song.

Blister in the Sun by the Violent Femmes, is fun because you can just mess around with it and do anything you want.

There ain't no moral to this story at all. Anything I tell you very well could be a lie.

For Whom the Bell Tolls by Metallica.

It's an easy but really awesome song, plus there's a lot of room for the bassist and drummer to really come through.
Easy to play and sing at the same time too.

You could also try Walk for the same reasons, but that one's a bit harder to play and sing at the same time (and the solo could be a problem if you're not a "virtuoso" yet ).

I like the sound of Wolfmother, blink 182, and maybeee the fall of troy.

it would be hard to scream AND play the guitar to that though i think.
i can't even scream properly, lol.

please keep them coming, im listening to all of your opinions

if you can really play, and if your drummer knows what pocket is, play some john mayer trio. you can jam for a long time on just one song.
