How about writing your own songs, or covering YOUR favourites.

It would be the best idea.

the name sounds like a porn site... and classic rock cover bands usually dont make people cum out their ear holes because
A: most cover bands play their songs lame
B: your probably not going to play gigs with no original material
C: the people that cum out their earholes for live music like screamo/heavy metal/ punk

how good of a 'classic rock' band can you have if you don't even know what classic rock songs people like?

I think you guys should actually play together before you assume you're going to be good enough to be gigging.

and lastly, learn to spell, that's close to the worst english I've ever seen written.

Classic Rock is not Iron Maiden and Megadeth... Led Zep, Deep Purple, the Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Cream etc are classic rock. If you call yourselves classic rock, and then walk out playing Megadeth, be ready to get pelted by beer bottles. If you want to do Maiden and Megadeth, play it with some other 80s metal, like Metallica, Anthrax, Judas Priest, and Slayer. If you want to play GnR and AC/DC, your best bet is to link it together with stuff like Ratt, Van Halen, Def Leppard, Quiet Riot, maybe some Jake E Lee and RR era Ozzy, and other 80s acts. You can't go all over the place as a cover band, or people won't be interested in you as it will be hard to get a group of people together who like everything you play.

How to get better?
1. Learn to spell.
2. Learn to use correct grammar.

Thank you.

Also that is as stated, not really classic rock! I play in a classic rock band where do mostly original songs. But I say here are a few classic rock bands (besides Aerosmith and AC/DC) you should cover if you want to be classic rock:
The Who, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, 70's David Bowie, early Fleetwood Mac (some might be more blues), Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Neil Young, Steppenwolf (Born To Be Wild is a tock staple classic), Rolling Stones, ZZ Top, Pink Floyd, Queen, Mountain, Allman Bros, Deep Purple, early Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Doors.

However, Maiden, Guns N' Roses and Megadeth are NOT classic rock. People who will go crazy about classic rock are often in their 30's-50's. These guys won't go crazy when you play Megadeth. As said, if you want to play stuff like Maiden, GnR and Megadeth, aim at 80's rock/metal. Judas Priest, early Metallica, Ozzy (Randy and Jake E. Lee era), Dio, Def Leppard, Anthrax, Slayer, Racer X, Scorpions, Mötley Crüe, Motörhead, Whitesnake and Van Halen are a few examples.

Decent choices, though a few people that listen to classic rock aren't going to be Maiden fans.

I'd leave out the Maiden stuff if I were you. Most classic rockers (myself included) ain't too big fans of them.
