Hey are there any good songs for just a drummer and guitarist?

Obviously Black Keys & White Stripes are some but I'd lke some more views.

The song doesn't technically need to have just guitar and drums. If it could sound cool with just those two then please spin them this way. Any genre is fine.

I'm sure you could get away with playing a good few of Paul Gilberts songs, Curse of Castle Dragon, technical Difficulties (I can't actually play this properly yet). There are a good few songs out there with minimal backing, (i assume you're asking because it's only you and the drummer playing?). Alternatively you could invest in a looper, and record backing bass etc onto it if your playing live.

That's how I play some Satch songs, like surfing with the alien I record the main rhythm sections and then play all lead over it and play the rhythm when there is no lead.

You probably just wanted a big list of songs, but you can really play any song with a drummer and guitarist in reality.

Anything from Peace Love and Death Metal, by Eagles of Death Metal.

Dead fun music to play as well.

It certainly does.

Pretty much any song can work without bass, as long as it doesnt rely on a bass riff (e.g. hysteria - muse)

You could also use a Y-connector to send your signal to both a guitar amp and a bass amp, thus filling out the bottom end. I've known some people to do this, and it works fairly well.

Or, if u wanted to add some bass, an octave effect pedal would work. Of course, it works best with rhythm heavy/light lead songs.

Highway to Hell by AC/DC. The verse parts don't use a bass at all.

I know this post is super out-dated but for anyone looking it up i jam with just guitar and drums. We play a lot of The White Stripes, Metallica, some Gorillaz can work like "kids with guns", Tenacious D's "the metal", the first half of Phantom of the Opera and Flight of Icarus by Iron Maiden, "Breaking the Law" by Judas Priest.

Yeah, this is really really out-dated, and I'm not entirely sure of the purpose of your post, seeing as this is thread from 2008. If you thought it was a good idea to have a thread about songs that work well when you're missing an instrument, perhaps you should make your own thread about it?

I found this thread while searching for "songs with two guitars and a drummer." I am thankful that fpongratz posted an actual answer to the OP's question instead of wasting space dogging someone for posting in an old thread.
