I signed up up for our school's battle of the bands. It is on tuesday sept 16(the adutions0. Our band has never practiced together.Up to now we have no singer and no setlist.Our drummer is crappy but the bassist and the other guitarist are really good. The singer is no problem but im not sure what type im gonnaget. NO death metall or black or any growling.

The real problem is the set list. We need one original song and two covers. The covers are goonna be metal. One of them might be They say by scars on broadway because its easy. the other might be seek and destroy but our drummer cant handle it. What are some good set list songs or if you have some song that you can give me. It eould be appreciated

No death metal/black metal? Psh. Wuss.

Also, Scars on Broadway is far from metal.

Idk, play some Metallica that's not as hard as Seek and Destroy?

oh and btw. For Whom The Bell Tolls. easiest metal song ever, i think. and its from Metallica... i was honestly very surprised at how simple the song was compared to their other stuff when i first heard it. try it, man.

the only songs that i know how to play by iron maiden are powerslave, aces high, trooper, rime of the ancient mariner and run to the hills but not everyone knows the same songs. For whom the bell toll might be good for the audition but not for the battle. No solo and i wantt people to see my skittlez. seek and destroy everyone knows it but the drummer. Sabbath is my second choice choice because of electric funeral. EAsiest Metal SONG EVEr. BTW power struggle is good

You mean tuesday as in the tuesday 4 days away?
Unless you have band practice 24/7 you'll never be tight enough in time.

Save yourselves the embarassment and wait until you're ready.

^ Agreed, get your act together first, then think about entering stuff like battle of the bands. You don't really have time to get anything ready for the auditions, (which means you might not get into the battle of the bands anyway)
Even though it's only at school and not in any professional enviroment, remember, all your school friends will be watching you and you really don't wanna be doing anything that's gonna make everyone point and laugh at you the next day at school.
Take the time to make sure it's done correctly and that your band is tight, then enter the next one they do and the the next day at school, they'll be saying 'well done' (or whatever teen slang is for 'well done' nowadays) instead.

Horrible idea. You'd be better off just going up by yourself since you won't be tight enough with a band since you haven't practiced.

My electric guitar broke and my cable so i had to borrow a starter strat. My bassist didnt show up or my drummer so me and my other guitarist just left after we showed off our skills while people were setting up. People were impresssed but im gonna have to wait until next year.

Gimme an 'I'!
Gimme a 'Told'!
Gimme a 'You'!
Gimme a 'So'!

What's that spell?
Sweet motherfucking satisfaction.


But really, if people were impressed you would've gotten through since BotB's are usually popularity contests.
Make sure you're prepared next time

I hate to say I told you so, so I'm just gonna tell you to go listen to the song by the hives.

Kick out your drummer and bassist.
