...hopefully. Theres a meeting after school tomorrow and auditions later.
I've decided me some guys (ie. a drummer/bassist/singer guy/maybe another guitarist if neccesary) are gonna play a song at this here talent show. We're metal heads, but I don't think the crowd would really enjoy something that makes you want to eat babies. SO. We're gonna play some rock music. Any ideas?
We can already play Killing In The Name Of, but it's getting kind of cliche to play that...
I want to play something that will please the crowd and something they might know.
Something that will show everyone how awesome I am :P

I was thinking maybe something along the lines of Black Sabbath, Ozzy, RATM, AC/DC? Shoot me some ideas

OMG UPDATE
Song needs to be under 3 minutes.
So far all I can think of is either SOAD's Ariels or Black Sabbath's Paranoid (which is what I'm leaning towards)
I need it to be for two guitarists and space for two solos (Paranoid has alot of space for crazy lead licks inbetween verses and stuff)

i'd suggest something on guitar hero just because most of the crowd will probably be familiar with it

Most the kids at my school either listen to rap or mainstream emo crap (ie. fall out boy) so I'd rather not play something like that.

Play Crank Dat Calvery Kid.


It has screaming (for the emos), and there's rap in it (for the gangstas)!

In that case,
Roses for the Dead - Funeral for a Friend

has tapping which looks good and pleases the emo fans.

About some nice, melody DEATH METAL *Bleeds from mouth*

No, kidding. I'm gonna vote for Welcome to the Jungle. Not only does it kick some MASSIVE ass, but it's on guitar hero, and will get you a sure fire win. It's fun to play, crowd pleasing, and shun shun shun shun shun shun shun shun shun shun shun, etc.. knees is fun as hell to do.

Tool, anyone?
