What song do you enter the stage to?

We're playing our first gig this friday (we've been playing together for close to 4 years, hooray for lack of bassist/drummer), and we're not the type of guys who take everything way too seriously.

This is the song we're entering the stage to:

FRIDAY by Taclite on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

It's a strange-ass remix/mashup of Rebecca Black - Friday and Doctor P - Tetris.

What song do you enter the stage to, if any?

Any classic rock song that most folks will know, especially if it has a really fun riff or some super cheesy vocals.

It's really fun to play the first few bars along with it and then just go into your own stuff.

The last show my band played, we came out to "I'm Miley Cyrus" by Lil B. As much as I hate him, I found it hilarious.

Incidentally, did you know that every pope since 1054 has actually been two badgers one on top of the others shoulders? This is my opinion, but I'm on the internet so I'm stating it as fact... - MR. S

And there's always bum fights out there. Especially involving "wheels", the guy with no legs who holds the sign "give me money or I'll kick you in the face" or the ever popular "will dance for money". - Ibz rg

We came in at the breakdown, so live we just used the beginning part before it.

I made one from an emergency broadcast signal, but we requested all the lights went out as the sound played through, was trippy people thought it was actually real until they heard a glitched "this is only a test" and then dethcore galore.

We got called back to do an encore so we did something similar on stage with the home alone clip "angels with filthy souls", ah that one was always a crowd lover.

we used to use this. We always had it cut off right after it says "fire" with a huge bass drop right into a breakdown.

I saw the Pixies a long ass time ago and they played Polka music for like an hour before they came on stage. Everyone was drinking beers and going nuts for the show to start!

My old band used to come play an intro that I wrote using a couple different harmonies and arranging it so that everyone came up and started their part as it repeated until the whole band was on stage and it just sounded epic then we let the last note ring as the drummer counted in the first song which started on the same not as the end of the intro.


Was a simple riff really but was still always a crowd pleaser

I used to be part of an acoustic duo, and we always opened with "Also Spake Zarathustra." It was so over the top, but we did classical/jazz/tango, and always insisted on being note-perfect.

If you don't care enough to research your own question, why should anyone else care more?

I liked the opening ABR used the last time I saw them. It surprisingly really pumped out the crowd.

classical stuff, like Henry Purcell or Beethoven.

That produces a deep effect, and allows you to start with any kind of song (fast, slow ...)

Silence. Then, the bass-intro to our song "Wetmoon" starts. Suddenly, blast beats, and then all hell breaks loose and we just stand there, going nuts and headbanging from song one. Guaranteed moshpits.

Only downside: It's by far our most energetic song, and it can feel a bit anti-climatic to finish off with a not-as-heavy progressive song :P

When I saw Tool like 4 years ago they had some 90s rock songs playing softly, then all of a sudden Maiden's "Number of the Beast" came on incredibly loud and perfectly synced with lights. Everyone came rushing back to the stage, only for Tool to not come on for about another 20-30 minutes. go for something like that haha

My band opened with the soundclip from From Dusk Til Dawn where Gerorge Clooney is telling the maid not to run, because he has six little friends, and they can all run faster than you. Pretty cool.
