    I love rock and roll and hit me with your best shot always go over well. We just added hungry like the wolf, but haven't played it out yet. I'm pretty sure it'll go over.

    YMCA always works, as does ""I can't get enough".
    I would love to get the Gostbusters theme in our set, and "girls just wanna have fun"...

    Oops, better not tell my band, since one of the singers hates it and wants to pull it from our 80ies medley, while it is a great crowdpleaser...

    maybe it reached Belgium a bit late... :)

    We're an old school heavy metal band, but once in awhile we'll break out "the Forest" by the Cure. The lead and I REALLY want to do Your Love, but our drummer is adamantly opposed. Pftt.. kids

    Living on a Prayer...and at one point we stop the song and let the crowd sing, always goes over great. Pour some sugar works well too.
