    Ok... I am a highschooler in a band with my friends. All of the bands of kids my age are crappy punk cover-bands, or crappy nu-metal bands. My band wants to be different...

    My cover list!!!
    • Paraniod by Sabbath
    • Crazy Train by Sabbath
    • Iron Man by Sabbath
    • Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith
    • Walk This Way by Aerosmith
    • Master of Puppets by Metallica
    • Nothing Else Matters by Metallica
    • One by Metallica
    • Out My BAck Door by Credence Clearwater Revival ;) why not
    • Free Falling by Tom Petty and The Heart Breakers
    • maybe some queen if we can work it out...
    • and similar stuff with same vibe
    We also have a bunch of origionals in the works...

    It seems like we are the only teen agers out there that aren't playing pop/punk/nu metal. or is it just me? What do you guys think of that list? I think it will be cool to play that kind of stuff. I am getting kinda tired of all the "punkers" and "nu-metalers"... We're just trying to put a new taste into the local music. What do you think?

    With that cover list, I don't think you are going to be that different :p Sounds like it's different from the other bands in your scene though, and different is usually in demand.

    Interesting idea, that CCR song. Why not indeed! There are kazillion great older songs around, if you can dig em up.
     
  5. A song I've done in the past by Queen- "Tie Your Mother Down," has always gone over real well.

    Something different?

    I'm 34, and my garage band's set list from my high school days was 90% of what yours is . . .

    . . . not that there's anything wrong with that . . .

    Since you're not playing for a paying audience, I gather, the best thing you can do is ask those listening what they think --- or even distribute questionnaires --- if giving the people what they want is what matters to you.

    When I was young, it didn't matter. Later on, I decided I liked food with my dinner.

    lol

    The main reason I started this band is because I want to play music. I am doing this for me, and if everyone else wants to come along, all the better. All of us in the band know that we are all going to different colleges, so we know it won't last for too long.

    And the Crazy Tain by Black Sabbath was a slip... sorry. I wrote this thread right before I went to bed.

    Two more songs just added to the list...
    • Sanitarium by Metallica
    • Rock You Like A Hurricane by The Scorpions

    :D



    You wanna know something kinda pathetic though... we still haven't came up with a name... :rolleyes: Any (serious) suggestions?

    Need to add Sucicide Solution by Ozzy. That guitar riff drives crowds mad.

    And I was just messin' on the other Ozzy comment. No hard feelin's?
