If you play in a band what is the song you like to open with?

(this counts if u wud want to play in a band)

This is like the vaguest question. Do you mean a cover or an original?
#4
Assuming you're talking covers, probably something like Constant Motion by Dream Theater. Hard, fast metal to get the crowd going.

Our band also likes to open with this ballad, however we add a more folk sound to the chorus.

We switch it up. Either:
MC Huey and The Collection of cups- an original (available free from our myspace link in my sig)
or Give it Away- Red hot Chili Peppers
Tiananmen Square Dance

I always found The Wickerman by Iron Maiden to be pretty crowd pumping.
#15
I like using songs that open with just guitar. I think it's cool

a band I am involved with did something similar, we recorded a really weird song and had our singer hold up a cd player to the mic as an opener.... We thought it was funny

You play it as a ballad? When my band opens with that it sounds more like a thunderous Dinosuar Metal head-banging song.
