    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.

    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.

    *keep the change you filthy animal*

    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!

    A few years ago Hatebreed came out to the "America, Fuck Yeah!" song from Team America. Pure awesomeness.

    Well, our mixer crapped out on us and fucked up our intro, but we played our asses off anyway. Went awesome, in my opinion :D

    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.

    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 ...)
