edited January 2010 in Your Ultimate Setlist
The Classic Years: 1954-1979


Okay, my first attempt at an Ultimate Setlist is a bit different.
Instead of taking the usual route of listing songs I'd like to see in the next game, I'm building a list of real-life (or occasionally fictional) venues that have been stepping-stones in the history of rock and roll from the 1950s to the present, and including a song that "unlocks" each venue.

Sun Records Studio (Memphis, 1954: Blue Suede Shoes -- Carl Perkins) rockabilly introduces the world to a new sound
American Bandstand(Philadelphia, 1955: Rock Around the Clock -- Bill Haley and His Comets) birth of rock n roll

Surf Ballroom (1959, Clear Lake, IA: Not Fade Away -- Buddy Holly) the day the music died

Top of the Pops (1964, London: All Day and All of the Night -- The Kinks) UK music show launched rock careers for 4 decades
Ed Sullivan Show (1964: I Wanna Hold Your Hand -- The Beatles) Beatlemania and TV's highest ever ratings

    I'm also open to suggestions, of course....what venues would YOU like to see, and what songs/bands would be associated with those venues? I'm mainly looking for real-world venues that have either been milestones in rock history, or have always been considered a crucial gig for any band to play to earn their bullets....but I'll also take fictional ones, from rock 'n' roll movies and the like.

    A work in progress, of course, and I'll be updating frequently....
    comments and suggestions welcome. :)

    Awesome setlist. I'd buy this game in a heart beat.

    How about including some performances from Letterman's Tonight Show? I know REM's performance of "Radio Free Europe" (and one other song I'm blanking out on at the moment - was it "So. Central Rain"?) on The Tonight Show is the thing that broke them nationally. Madonna had a pretty famous appearance on the show, too.

    This is an amazing idea for a game, and a good setlist to boot. Just one thing... The nostalgic Mets fan in me would love to see Shea Stadium somewhere in the game. :) It was fairly important in the development of concerts being played in large, outdoor stadiums.

    I've definitely got plans for Letterman, SNL and some other TV variety shows that have hosted some great gigs over the decades....I can't use "Radio Free Europe," though, because I've already got that one at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA in 1983....:D

    There's an obvious one featuring The Beatles....;)
    But I've already used them at Ed Sullivan 1964 (even though that's a rehash of TBRB, which I'd rather avoid....still, it's impossible to create a venue/concert setlist like this and ignore the single biggest night in the history of rock and roll television).

    I'll try to dig up some great Shea performances....hey, did The Clash ever play there? I need a good Clash gig in the game somewhere....

    But I've already used them at Ed Sullivan 1964 (even though that's a rehash of TBRB, which I'd rather avoid....still, it's impossible to create a venue/concert setlist like this and ignore the single biggest night in the history of rock and roll television).

    I'll try to dig up some great Shea performances....hey, did The Clash ever play there? I need a good Clash gig in the game somewhere....
    Yes! They did play there.. opened for The Who in.. 1983, I want to say. I have the album.. here's a link: http://www.last.fm/music/The+Clash/Live+at+Shea+Stadium
    I enjoy that live album immensely.

    I see room on the list for Alice in Chains, Megadeth, and Quiet Riot.

    EDIT: Oh and idk if you had planned against this or whatever, but I'd say Woodstock was a big enough event to include more than one song, for example some Sly and the Family Stone, Joe Cocker, and/or Creedence Clearwater Revival would be nice, if not then I would still love to see those bands included somehow.

    What about Mabuhay Gardens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mabuhay_Gardens), the San Francisco punk club? Instrumental venue in the west coast punk scene. Throw up a Dead Kennedys track in there, perhaps?

    On that note, there is also this legenedary performance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pull_My_Strings

    Daydream Believer for the Monkees? That song sounds terrible for the game.
