Isn't one supposed to attract people's attention as fast as possible? I expect people to say "cool, they're playing Enter Sandman" instead of going "what's that song?". I don't expect people to know every song by Metallica for instance but I'm sure they'll know Enter Sandman and I'm pretty sure they'll get a blast listening to it even if they've heard it 1 millions time before...I bet younger guys wouldn't recognize, say "Phantom Lord", you follow?
On a culture view point, I think bar gigs aren't as "institutionalized" in Europe as they are in the US. I can understand how americans can be bored of hearing the same tunes played by 10 different bands in 10 different bars but I don't think we have the same situation here in Europe.
Just my 2 cents too. :D


My bad.....Your're probably right! Sorry about that. I didn't consider that you are in Europe. It's just that here in the States EVERBODY plays "Sweet home Alabama". Don't even get me started with "Free Bird"!!!! I Hated Playing that song, yet it never failed, at EVERY gig, no matter what setting, someone yelled "Free Bird, Sweet Home Alabama or Gimme 3 Steps". :roll:

I play with some guys that actually enjoy Breaking the Law....ugh...I hate that song! What's next? Run To The Hills? Trooper? ARGHHH!


:lol: Ha ha ha! "The Green Manalishi" ....and UFO "Lights Out" was another one! :D

Hey, you know what? There's a local band in my town who usually end up their set by Freebird and I can tell you nobody in the audience is able to name the original composer. Hell, I'm pretty sure some think it's an original. :lol:
A band like Skynyrd is part of the US heritage right? You have some cool musical heritage like Bluegrass, Country or Blues. We simply don't have that in Europe. :( Skynyrd is a pretty...mmh...exotic band for the average european! :lol:

A good bar song would be Homesick by Atlanta Rhythm Section. It's off of Quinella.

Rock Steady-Bad Company
Bad Seamstress Blues/Fallin' Apart At the Seams-Cinderella
Rock of Ages-Def Lep
Nighttrain-Guns N'Roses
Into The Now-Tesla

I'm not a musician, so I don't know how fun/boring these might be to play, but they're the sort of songs that I'd like to hear when I'm out with friends. They're not your usual everyone-plays-this kind of bar tunes.
