HA god for some reason every band I've been in played the hell out of Smells Like Teen Spirit, then they promptly fell apart.
Satan isn't inside a guitar pick. He's in here. In our hearts. He's what makes us not want to go to work, or excercise or tell the truth. He's that little voice in your mind that says "Fuck you" to the people you hate.

Quote by vintage x metal
I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

White Unicorn by Wolfmother. Then Anna Molly


Anna Molly, **** yeah!

But to go on topic, I think my bands first song ever as a full lineup was either Silver and Cold by AFI, or Basket Case by Green Day when we were auditioning our drummer. Since then it's been alllll originals
#7
first song my band had was Are You Gonna Go My Way from Lenny Kravitz, then Always on the Run from Lenny and Slash, now we do some Sonata Arctica, Megadeth, Skid Row, and our big finish song is usually Silent Revelation by Galneryus
#8
first song was an original called, "baby baby girl part 2".

We still play it, along with a dozen or so other songs.

In my experience, everyone in the band has an extensive song list, but no one knows one same song. So all originals when I'm in a lineup, but if it's just me and another guitarist, then we run through covers.

In the history of me being in bands, I've never played a cover(minus a few simple punk songs redone into grindcore).

The first few songs I wrote were very musically diverse because I got in a band around the same time I was new to metal. And since I was new to metal, I wasn't too specific on what the real genres for me were, so thats how the musical diversity came in.

The first two songs I wrote were good examples:

Song 1 was completely influences by Slaver. I couldn't give a good song example of the sound, but I wrote it under the influence of Slayer. I used alot of major power chords because I wasn't too sure how to write a solid metal song.

Song 2 was just a shot in the dark. I didn't know what I was aiming for, just listened to alot of bands and trying to do something a little more technical. But the best way to describe the sound would be Darkest Hour, it sounded alot like some of their riffs(I wasn't even aware of this band at the time).

Here is a very very very sloppy video recording of Song 1, its very hard to hear because it skips like crazy and repeats some parts over for some reason. But its a video.

My style now is alot of different stuff. My main thing is old-skool punkish thrash and early death metal(as far as my band's style goes). I am into and write lots of different stuff, especially brutal death metal and black metal.

Started off with originals mostly. covers included: Sweet Child O' Mine, Nightrain, This Means War, Paranoid, and Run to the Hills. though we only did one or two of those a show.
#12
1st song ever played was an original called "Depressed".
not emo....just an emo song name i guess it sucks, i hate it now along with the next 2 songs after that.
1st cover we played......hmm....OH YEAH, it was a song off of Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night.

i quit that band at the beginning of summer though, they're still some of my best friends though
#13
My one band was a punkish cover of Mad World (originally by Tears for Fears).

And now my newer, more active band has a song called "Deleting People in the Margins" which is a dancy-indie tune.
It's not so bad being trendy, everyone who looks like me is my friend.

I love punk, I love ska, I love acoustic, and I love you.

My first band's first song was almost as funny as a retribution paladin trying to get a raid spot. LOL.


To much WoW =(

That sounds good man. I mean, it may not be perfect, but it looked like two guys just jamming a song to me. Also, the riffs were pretty sweet and the drums were solid. I thought it was pretty cool. There's no reason to feel bad about that at all. Actually, my only two complaints were the swtiching between sections and the drummer had a couple of odd moments (still sounded great though).

See, this is why I would love to laugh in the face of anyone who comes here and tries to assert that people on this site have no skill. It couldn't be farther from the truth.

Oh, my first song for my first REAL band was an original called "Hard Reality."

A song we wrote about taking **** for granted. It was a pretty crappy song but we were only 11. It was called too fast and I remember the chorus went "Time is so fast that I can't even do alot and then its the next morning and ****" no rhyming scheme, no melody, no key, no nothing
