Burn a few songs, I'll give you some examples, probably more people will make suggestions, and you'll just have to mix the whole thing together.

Sum 41 - Pieces
Weezer - Buddy Holly
Sun Eats Hours - Endless Desire
Paradise Lost - Grey
Gamma Ray - Heaven or Hell
Audioslave - Doesn't Remind Me
Green Day - Holiday

hope it helps.

That song takes bloody ages to start, i get sick of the bells at the start, but it's worth it i guess.

Couldn't agree more although the riffs at the start are abit repetitive though.

TheUnholyNightbringer
10-25-2005, 10:03 AM
Nah, I don't think so. I tend to do a bit of improvising to keep it fresh.

The-Offspring-RuLe
10-25-2005, 10:10 AM
Yeah i guess so, how come you missed One of your list? that's almost one of Metallica's best songs, and that's also a damn good song to play.

TheUnholyNightbringer
10-25-2005, 10:11 AM
It just slipped my mind. But anyway, One wasn't the best song even on ..And Justice For All. It's good but it's certainly not one of Metallica's best.

The-Offspring-RuLe
10-25-2005, 10:19 AM
As i said 'Almost' one of their best songs, and Faith No More - Epic should be on my list, that song/video inspired so many bands.

TheUnholyNightbringer
10-25-2005, 10:24 AM
Oh yeah. And Mr Bungle, possibly.

No punk CD without Bad Religion.
Songs:
Punk Rock Song
Sorrow
The Defense
I want to conquer the world

You should have some Vandals too:

Smells like teen spirit (by Nirvana) is also good.

And for the Metal:
Metallica-Master Of Puppets
Iron Maiden- Run To The Hills
Iron Maiden- Number Of The Beast
Hammerfall- Secrets
Hammerfall- Glory To The Brave (great song)

And we shouldn't forget The Offspring (one track from each CD)
Beheaded
Session
Genocide
All I Want
The Kids Aren't Alright
Come Out Swinging
Race Against Myself

And if you don't have this one on I'll be very dissapointed:
Weird Al- Constipated

Hmm this is probably about 2 or 3 CDs though..

Flogging Molly- Queen Anne's Revenge
Candlebox- You
Foo Fighters- Hell
Jimi Hendrix- Anything but Foxy Lady
Midtown- Give it Up

Lucky Boys Confusion- Evidence (this one will probably be hard to find)
Minus the Bear- Pony Up
Minus the Bear- El Torrente
Nirvana- Breed

QOTSA- Go With the Flow (but nothing from the rest of that godawful album)
RATM- Ashes in the Fall
RHCP- Aeroplane
Social D- Crown of Thorns
Sonata Arctica- Full Moon
Sonata Arctica- Destruction Preventer
Stroke 9- Little Black Backpack
Tantric- Astounded

That was far more songs than I intended to write. Hey, look at me, everyone, I'm a music whore!

Try classics, Rolling Stones' Fourty Licks, The Beatles' White Album or Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band are the albums which can make everyone happy. But if he/she has them or doesn't have a good taste in music buy Sepultura's Roots.

Some indie-punk songs might appeal to your friends, such as:

The Kooks - Sofa Song
Arctic Monkeys - Bet you Look Good on the Dance Floor
