Me and my band are performing at a school dance, but we haven't thought of a set list yet. Something with 1 guitar, 1 drum, 1 bass, 1 singer, no keyboards, and not other instruments. Nothing with effects pedals.

Give me 3-5 songs to play at the dance. Something I perfect in 2 months, cause thats when the dance is.

PS: Don't give sarcastic songs like "I cum Blood" or "****ed With A Knife"

During practice once, my bass player was trying to act cool and headbang and I hit him in the face with sharp head of my washburn (accident maybe). Theres still a tiny bit of blood in my guitar, I think its kinda cool

No effects pedals?

What?

Why?
When you saw me sleeping
thought I was dreaming
of you...


I didn't tell you
That the only dream
Is Valium for me

I don't have the money for it. Plus, don't really want to play anything with LOADS of pedals..

Good luck with that...

If your school is anything like mine, they'll all be wanting rap, hip hop, and other musical genres synonymous with ****.

For some of the songs, take requests from the audience. If no one speaks up, have a friend willing to back you up in the crowd.

Boys Like Girls - Great Escape or Hero/Heroin
Fall Out Boy - Whatever you want, it's all pretty catchy and fun
Blink 182 - Same as above but you might want to do All the Small Things
Oasis - Wonderwall
Bowling For Soup - I'll Stop the World and Melt With You. The crowd might like their version better.
Finger Eleven - Paralyzer
Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench, for the GH fans
Gree Day - Whatever you want again, but i'd say Brain Stew
Jet - Are you gonna be my girl
Nickelback - Rockstar or Animals
The Offspring - Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)
One of Sum 41's songs

Take some of these suggestions and you'll be fine
