    me and my band mates have a battle of the bands to attend in 1 month. we are having trouble brainstorming ideas for good songs to play. if you could just make a few suggestions as to a song or two that would make you drop your jaw if you heard play,i would be very grateful. remember nothing is too hard.
    -thanks-

    I take it you are permitted to play covers of songs in that battle. Some Battles of Bands only allow original music.

    As you want to play covers, I think your best bet is to get a read on the judges' music preferences. Or at least know what the audience will likely support. Don't play heavy metal covers if it is primarily a country music crowd for example. Know your audience to please them.
