Ok, heres the thing:
Me and my band would like to set up a big (outdoor) party with a rock show.
We would install lights and sell alcool and people could bring their tents to sleep there. I was asking my self what songs we could play to entertain them as much as we can! I tought of band like fall out boy and offspring etc,,, (popular bands :( )

I must say that its far from what we usually play, but we do this just to have more gig experiences and maybe make some money.

I am now waiting for your suggestions ! :) thanks sevenstring.org!

You should do seperate sets, like one day would be classic rock and another 80's and another 90's and so on, or seperate the days like Metal, Rock, pop, whatev. Or do the generes by Hour or somth, haha.

I think that maybe one or two classic rock songs would give you the room to improvise and play them in your own style. Sunshine of Your Love, Electric Funeral, Space Truckin, etc. They are big, one-note riffs that jump out at the listener.

Good Luck! :)

Assuming you have a good singer:

Deep Purple - Highway Star
Rainbow - Long Live Rock n' Roll
Alcatrazz - Jet to Jet
Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil
Mr. Big - Green Tinted 60s Mind
Blue Oyster Cult - Godzilla (Racer X version)
Van Halen - Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love

Or something.
