Looks like a good setlist to me, definitely throw in some oldies that the teachers will remember, as for newer songs, maybe some bloc party or vampire weekend?

My band is covering Should I stay Or Should I Go for a party on saturday, we're expecting it to go down quite well, I'll tell you how it goes.

Quote by Zycho
I wouldn't bother playing any originals.

Dude, definitely play originals, but especially if this is the first people will be hearing your band, make sure you have more covers so you can ween in some originals inbetween. Then maybe end on your strongest cover.
As you get a larger fanbase around your school and you've done a few parties etc a good idea is to do mostly original setlists with requested covers from whoevers party is, that's the stage we're getting to now.

So let me get this straight.... you have three covers ready to go, and you need to play three hours in six weeks?! I've been playing 25 years, and I would hate to be in your position.

I suggest:
-ask to play a much shorter set... like... six songs. That list of covers you mentioned looks pretty decent, though I'd want to throw some newer stuff in.
or
-bail on the gig, and do it now. Don't leave them hanging, and don't set yourself up for epic failure in front of everyone you know.

As far as originals goes... the audience is there to dance. Originals are a tough sell in that environment. Your job is first to please the audience, and second to promote yourself.

All the covers i've looked at are extremely simple. To the point of where i've already learned half of them on guitar and vocals. My bassist is good (can play some Primus songs) and my drummer (can play "Moby Dick")

The couple covers we've played so far we've learned in 15 minutes total.

We can handle it.

It's not the individuals learning their parts, it's the band learning the arrangements and stuff. Good luck with that. I mean, we're talking at 15 songs an hour, you guys having to learn about 40 songs. That breaks down to over 6 songs a week - and making sure the first six you learned in the first week don't get forgotten or sloppy while you all face a barrage of new material that you're all cramming to learn! Not gonna happen.

asked us to play the middle school dance

Don't you think you should consider a few slower songs so that the middle schoolers can make their pathetic attempts at groping each other while trying to dance slow?
#15
Its middle school. Play some fallout boy, maybe throw a little Jonas Brothers in there. Hell play some Panic! at the Disco. People at my age love that shitty music! I swear people wouldn't know good music if it bit them in the ass. I bet they would boo Clapton off stage. Okay sorry my rant is over.

Thats why we chose the Tokio Hotel song. It's slow for most of it.

Yes, it will be hard to learn all the songs. But we all love challenges, I think we can do it.

Today we got down "Paranoid", "Seven Nation Army", and "Vasoline."

Just remember that its a dance so make sure the songs can be danced too, typical dances go with 5-7 big dance songs then 1 slow one. I would recommend something like (this is in terms of older crowd)

Blister in the Sun
Mony Mony
Kissed a Girl
I love rock n roll
Johnny b goode
Takin care of business
Wonderful Tonight

Not for a real example just an idea I took from my bands BAR setlist. I am not that old (19) and I can even find myself enjoying these songs. But basically get them dancing then end a set with a slow one.
#19
my band did that as a first gig
dont do any originals
and i know its retarded but stick to mainstream songs
fall out boy, blink, Panic at the disco, etc
about 90% of the people wont know any songs on your list

He's playing a school dance for a bunch of middle schoolers. They will not give 2 shits about their original material. Stick with the mainstream covers.
#21
ok first off i would cut it down to a 2 hour set at most. what chris said is a good point, but also think about your voice. do you think you can sing properly and loudly for 3 hours straight and still sound good by then end of it? i reakon you'd be struggling by the end of 2 hours.

as for songs:
Anything Fall Out Boy
Anything Panic! at the Disco
Anything Simple Plan
Anything Blink 182
Some Bon Jovie
Song 2 - Blur
The Impression that i get - Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Prisoner of society - Living End
Lullaby - Shawn Mullins (the chicks will love that one)
Some Red Hot Chilli Peppers
In The Air Tonight - Phill Colins
Wonderwall - Oasis
Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
All Apologies - Nirvana
About a Girl - Nirvana
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
Some Green Day
Times Like These - Foo Fighters
Everlong - Foo Fighters
My Hero - Foo Fighters
Another Brick In The Wall (part 2) - Pink Floyd (perhaps play "Happiest Days of Our Lives" by Pink Floyd Before that too, that would go down pretty good")
Love And War - Drowning Pool

actually throughout the night singers usually get better at singing cause their chords are getting worked and use to the stress... usually the next day or a few hours rest do they start to kick in to being hoarse.

play teenage kicks

and seriously good luck with getting that many songs tight in that length of time. i would ask to cut down your set if i were you. (even if it's just a bit) or you might end up looking like fools =[
Smexy. =]
#26
This is something I've always wanted to do.
Start with some Pop-punk, and indie, then subtly move on to some harder rock.
After that move on to punk, then hardcore, then end by turning the gain on your amps way up, and screaming into the mic. Make sure theres still plenty of time left in the set, and that there is some shred of a melody in your ear piercing noise.

Play till you are kicked off.

Depends on the singer. A singer with good technique will sing stronger at the end of the night than at the beginning, and will sing better after four months of touring than at the beginning of the tour.

If you don't have good technique, all bets are off as to how your body will cope with the punishment.

You're kidding. You'd be lucky if, in a middle school dance, even three people in the whole room knew that song.

Play some Death, Necrophagist, Slayer, or early Metallica.

Update.

We have successfully completed every cover on our list. With our original material our set will take up 1 hour and 40 minutes.

We have 4 weeks to practice and make it as tight as possible.

We're planning on adding 2 original songs and maybe 2 more covers.
