But really, asking the pit for relationship advice is like asking a girl with braces for a blowjob. Ouch.

For pissed people, presumably of mixed ages, you need classic rock songs that they all know from compilation cds people get bought at christmas...you'll need a good singer, but Since You've Been Gone, More Than A Feeling, Poison (Alice Cooper song, not the band :P),
I believe In A Thing Called Love (classic rock influence ish :P), a few Queen songs...

Those sorta songs, though try to be original and not pick the ones I mentioned as they're a bit too cheesy and cliché.

Edit: I used to be in a classic rock/modern rock hybrid covers band and our usual set list for a longer gig was:

Intro *improv. over chords: A->D->E->D*

GreenDay - Basket Case

Queen - Hammer To Fall

RHCP - Zephyr Song *with our own extended solo section*

Bad Company - Can't Get Enough Of Your Love

Santana (improv) - Oye Como Va

Metallica - Fade To Black

Lynyrd Skynyrd - Freebird

*Encore*

The Darkness - I Believe In A Thing Called Love


Quite a mix I know :P We got on average £250 for 45mins-1 hour to split between the 5 of us...£50 a gig for a 15/16year old was pretty wicked really

You should know what your band is going to play before you even get the gig. If you don't already have a complete show worked out then you shouldn't be booking yourself.

Definitely Dani California. Everyone knows that song.

Also, play some classic rock, like everyone is suggesting. Deep Purple, The Who, etc.
