hmm... depending on the skill level, maybe try some hendrix? maybe Spanish Castle Magic, or Castles Made Of Sand or Crosstown Traffic

also, maybe try some Incubus? a lot of there songs have some cool guitar and/or bass riffs in them, you just have to look around a little

or maybe make your own version of a cover of some other song of another genre, something like really poppy that everyone knows, but with a new, psychadelic spin on it
Arbor A410 Bass
Dinosaur 20 Watt Bass Amp
Line 6 Spider III 75 Watt
Squier Bullet

Excuse me sir, have you been thinking tonight?

I second that. It's a great song by a great band.

cover something not in your genre, and make it yours. Its memorable that way too

haha thats funny. i was actually thinking of suggesting joker and the thief and castles made of sand to the band. and i like the idea of taking a song out of my genre and changing it around.

what about the doors? they might be one of those "uncoverable" bands though

Some rather nice advice.

Have a novelty song -- a well known track that no one would expect you play. You don't have to play it as recorded.
Stop showing off and play the music!

For some funk-rock an obvious choice is early Chili Peppers material, they were masters of taking an existing song from outside the genre and giving it a funk-rock overhaul.

As a specific recommendation, Deep Inside by Incubus.
