song choice for gig

hey,

theres a show at school coming up in march sometime and my band are gonna try to get in and play, we usually have a 2 song limit, and we cant deicde what the 2 should be, we are gonna play metallicas One for sure, but we;re kinda torn between Hate me! from Children Of Bodom, and a song from dream theatre, i could use some opinions about this dilemma

Thanks

Hate me!, ONLY if u have a keyboardist which i asusme you do since any Dream Theater songs would require a keyboardist as well. But i think Hate Me would be the better choice if your playing to a audience of dumbass school kids, it will appeal to them more.

If you go for Dream Theater, make sure it's a song with relatively easy time changes, because "normal ppl" usually do not really appreciate stuff that they don't understand. The Glass Prison would be "easy" enough, and really great to show of your guitar skills (if you have them that is (I for sure don't)).

And I'd vote for Dream Theater.

i think the bassist wanted to play glass prison or something like that, but he wasnt sure which song, i was kinda going for hate me myself cause im a bigger bodom fan ( their live show kicked ass btw) but dream theatre would be easier to sing i guess thansk for your output guys and rock on

Any Dream Theater song would prove that hes a good guitarist also.. And proove that the rest of the band is great as well.

thats the funny thing about it, im not trying to prove anyone anything, im there to do what i love best play guitar, and i have to sing aswell, so i thinnk i'll be impressing enough ppl, but thats my bassists idea, he wants to prove to everyone hes a good bassist, this is kinda of topic, but since when did ppl throw the love of music out the window and just try to show everyone up? do you think eric clapton wanted to be the best, ok sure maybe a little, but he fell in love with the guitar, had a talent, and im sure he enjoyed 80-90% of his career. buti think im gonna go with hate me, we decided to learn hate me and Lie, from DT whichever sounds best we play haha thanks alot guys, and remember, its not about how much ass you kick, its about how much fun you had doing it

I like Dream Theater much more, mostly because I think CoB's cover of "The Trooper" ruined the entire song. But if you play Dream Theater then there a.) Probably won't be much singing & b.) is gonna be one hell of a song to learn if you don't know it yet.

you shouldn't concentrate on what song would be best on stage, but what song you would like most to play (favourite band or song maybe?)
if you realy like what you play, that will show and give one heck of a better show than just another tricky solo that you play with inhuman machinelike precision (ok i'm raving lol)

screw the people that don't like the song you choose to play... let them figure it out on the fretboard right?

thanks, were going with One and hate me! thanks alot for the feed back, if you guys good play any songs on lets call it a a "dream setlist" what would they be? i'd have to say a thrash metal tribute set list would be awesome, you know play one song from each of the big thrash bands, something like,
1. seek and destroy
2.some thing from megadeth
3.raining blood
4.something from anthrax
etc.
