Alright, so my band has a gig in around a month. Originally we were gonna be a cover band with a couple of originals. But since we've struggled with the choice and performance of these songs, we've decided to switch to an original band with a few covers.

The only covers we decided to keep are Rainbow In The Dark and Holy Diver by Dio. We need a third cover. One that people will know. I'm the guitarist/singer, and I'm great on the fretboard, but while I'm a decent singer I don't have much range. Bass isn't particularly good (has been playing for a couple of months), drummer is decent, keyboardist is classically trained. So keep all that in mind. Suggestions?

Also, I need some help for writing the rest of the originals. How might I go about getting inspiration?

Why in the hell are you doing two Dio covers? Are you playing a washed up 80's metal bar?
I was once heavily prominent on these forums from 2004-2007, let's see how long I can stay now that I'm back.

It's really freaking difficult to appeal to the rest of the band. The pianist is classical, the drummer is a jazz drummer, and the bassist who sucks mainly listens to hair metal. So far the Dio covers are the only ones that sounded decent. I've tried to suggest plausible gig-type songs...if they would play them, I would.

So any actual suggestions?
