Songs I Would Cover In A Band By Album

I was in a ska band called A Billion Ernies for a while and we didn't really do a whole lot of covers other than the Zelda Theme Song (oh ska), but If I were in a band now I would work these covers in whenever I could.
10Rocky Votolato
True Devotion


Track is "Red River". I always knew this dude was around, but I had a chance to see him with David Bazan and I really enjoyed this song. It's a good campfire song.
9Quicksand
Slip


Track is "Head to Wall". My favorite Quicksand song. The breakdown in the middle could be so heavy.
8Pavement
Wowee Zowee


Track is "Grounded". This song really got me into Pavement. I think it would be a cool song to open with if you didn't really plan on the audience looking to interested in being at the show.
7Jimmy Eat World
Clarity


Track is "For Me This is Heaven". If I were in some band like Copeland or The Spill Canvas and there were just a bunch of chicks then I would bust this one out. It's just a romantic song to boot.
6Mazzy Star
So Tonight That I Might See


Track is "Fade Into You". This is another one of those pretty songs that I think everyone has heard, but don't really know who performs it. Since it's pretty straightforward I think a lot could be done with it to make it an awesome cover.
5Starflyer 59
Gold


Track is "Next Time Around". This song is actually on the re-release special edition. It's just a super depressing song that has the potential to be super low and heavy. I'd imagine it would have to be one of those shows again where know one looks interested in being there.
4Fugazi
13 Songs


Track is "Waiting Room". This seems to be everyone's favorite Fugazi song if you aren't a really big Fugazi fan. When I was on tour I heard a ska band cover it and it actually sounded pretty freaking awesome. I don't see you being able to do a lot with it, but it would be one of those songs where a few people would cheer when they hear the bass line.
3Rainer Maria
Look Now Look Again


Track is "Planetary". This was my first real show. I went to see Starflyer 59 when I was 14. Rainer Maria opened for them. I remember this song standing out. I always loved the progression and dynamics of this song. It would sound awesome super heavy.
2David Bazan
Live At Electrical Audio


Track is "Never Wanted You". This is actually a Headphone song that was originally played on keys, but in this version it's electric. The song is probably my favorite of all time and if you want to hear it then make sure to listen to the version from this album.
1Neil Young
Harvest


Track is "Alabama". Neil Young was the first emo kid. Every 50 something-year-old I know didn't like him because they thought he was "too whiny sounding". There are so many classic rock songs I think would sound tits if they were recorded nowadays and this is one of them. That chorus is just so heavy. It would be so fun to make it nice and loud.
