so were having trouble getting pub gigs playing only originals,
we have plenty of our own shows and a huge fanbase that come to see our songs. but we have been playing a few pub gigs lately and its obvious that theese twenty year olds just wanna hear some songs the recognise.

we dont wanna play the level one clishe songs, eg smells like teen spirit, and that, iv tried to get the bands second most famous song.

so yeh, we wont be learning them all. i just made the list for my band to decide twenty or so they wanna learn.

Well you're just one big walking cliche aren't you.

Edit: But I guess if that's what you play then fine.
Ok they're all pretty well known and cliched anyway. for Rage look at third album stuff. it's far more interesting.

I would actually say make that the Ultimate List of Covers You Shouldn't Cover..
and then do other ones..

The whole point of doing covers is to do things that your audience will know. If you want to know the truth, the best covers to do are none.

if u have plenty of shows and a "huge" fanbase i dont really see why you have to do this at all...


Exactly.

Unless you're really like to play covers, I'd start to phase out the covers and use more originals.
