Hello folks!


We are only one month away from the new year's eve, and i'm sure there comes plenty of different rockband/singstar + alcohol concerts, that even Freddie Mercury wouldn't be ashamed of.


I want to make the best setlist possible for the night of heavy full rock band kick-assing, and i'm looking for songs which in your opinion works great in full band playing with group singing. (people on instruments are usually ok with any song, but vocalists can never agree about which song to play).


Anyway,  here's my list of songs from my in-game setlist that i consider working great for those kinda moments at the party when everyone is involved and you're not doing some weird underground stuff. So lets start the fun and create some god tier setlists,


1. Abba - Dancing Queen & Money Money      -    Always works with girls and give a lots of fun.

2. Ace of Base - All that She Wants                  -    Have to admit that almost every 80',90' disco songs usually works wonders.

3. Adele - Any Song                                          -    Again, girls girls girls, but also every man secretely  love to screetch it with                                                                                                                                                                                              falsetto.

4. Aerosmith - Dream on                                   -   Great Energy maker, many thanks for making the original version of the song                                                                                                                                                    cause live version is awful in my opinion.

5. Alice Cooper - Poison                                    -   No Words needed.

6. Alice in Chains - Nutshell, Would?                 -   Nutshell is usually for last persons standing at 8am.

7. Alphaville - Forever Young                            -    Napoleon Dynamite.

8. Arctic Monkeys - Do i Wanna Know ?           -   Don't like the song too much but works in groups well.

9. Beck - Loser                                                  -   Usually everybody sings -"uihgerguibfdbnvjslfnugabuga I'm a loser baby so why                                                                                                                                                 don't you kill me, fun anyway.

10. Ben.E.King - Stand by Me                           -   No words needed.

11. Bill Withers - Ain't no Sunshine                    -   As above.

12. Billie Eillish - Bad Guy                                 -    Hate to admit, but it's true.

13. Black Sabbath - like, anything                     -    When girls go out to pour drinks or powder noses the big boys are screeching Sabbaths

14. Blondie - Tide is High                                  -    Great chillout mood riser.

15. Bloodhound Gang - The Bad Touch            -    Same as  in Beck - Loser but with Discovery Channel.

16. Bon Jovi - Livin' on a Prayer                        -    The "Whoah Ooh" can usually blowoff people's roofs.

17. Boney M - Any song                                    -     Great Disco, great singing. Surely will chart Daddy Cool till end of the year.

            (((but we know it's Rasputin)))                                                                                

18. Bonnie Tyler - Heartache & Holding Out     -    Classics.(Drummer can show off his demon stamina and abs on Holding Out                                                                                                                                                                                                For a Hero)

Never                                                                                              stop trying to make people sing "Why Does it Hurt When i Pee"

I remember when this song was released I was so excited to play it at the local rock band event at a pub. Not a single soul knew what the hell I was singing along to.
