First of all dear moderators, I am not sure if this thread falls under this category, so please feel free to move it if it seems correct to you. So here is the story. I am playing in an all originals alternative hard rock band and we have been thinking about doing a cover song for quite some time now. We occasionally do two depending on how long our set needs to be. We are currently doing Meant to live by Switchfoot and Interstate love song by the Stone temple pilots. The thing is that we need a song that is very popular, if not classic. Not necessarily something rock but something that could be rockified with a modern flare and if possible rather uptempo. This is a snippet of how the band sounds: https://soundcloud.com/placidrevival/ep-teaser Moreover here are some suggestions that have been turned down and the reasons why: Iron Maiden-Killers too metal, vocalist in a different range Black Sabbath-War Pigs too long, not uptempo enough Genesis-Land of Confusion not popular enough Whiskey in the Jar too common, too folky Pearl Jam-Even flow not popular enough, vocalist in different range. So please give some suggestions.
